Get Fit With Mandira Bedi
Mandira Bedi's "365 day challenge" is real fitness goals. The anchor-actress always inspires us to do more to stay active and have a fit body. For Mandira, exercise is "bridge over troubled water" and her workout diaries prove it. Sharing a video of skipping, Mandira wrote: "While everything looks like it's on another rhythm altogether, I decided skipping backwards was the order of the day! It requires a different kind of timing, that's for sure. 2000 skips (front ones) and 1000 squats (free weight) is what made up my workout today!" Way to go, Mandira Bedi!
#day232 While everything looks like it's on another Rhythm altogether, I decided skipping backwards was the order of the day!

Shilpa Shetty And Her Workout Buddies
When it comes to exercise and yoga, Shilpa Shetty's family proves no one is like them. Her husband Raj Kundra, mother-in-law Usha Rani and son Viaan equally participates during her workout sessions. A couple of days ago, the actress posted a clip of her mother-in-law exercising and wrote: "My 68-year-old mom-in-law working out and I sneaked up on her... This is so inspiring. She's highly diabetic but just the fact that she takes the time out to walk (even if it's around the house) or do yoga/stretch or breathe... she makes that effort. I respect the discipline she maintains, only shows that she 'values' her health." She also showed us that "one doesn't need extensive equipment to stay fit."

She's gonna kill me for posting this, but I had to... Love you and your spirit mom... So grateful for all your blessings and for the fact that you inspire us all #MondayMotivation #20DaysOfGratefulness #Day11 #FitIndia #SwasthRahoMastRaho #gratitude #family #fitness #homeworkout #stayhome #staysafe
Here's @rajkundra9 demonstrating how one doesn't need any extensive equipments to stay fit! Just a minute of skipping (even the regular kind) works. So, pick up your skipping ropes and buss ek minute tak, #SkipKarona. Let's add some cheer in each other's lives in our own little way. Pakad rope aur India ko jod! Iss social distancing ke environment mein, aaiye fitness ke zariye dilon ko connect karein. Don't forget to tag @kiren.rijiju and me in your videos!

With a young and active child in the house, I know how important it is to keep the kids busy through this time. The energy that they spend doing their regular activities remains pent up inside with no release whatsoever! So, only sharing some ideas with all the parents out here to make sure that your child gets enough activity/exercise through the day. It's very easy for the boredom to lead to irritation and restlessness, but it's important that we become their friends and keep them company now, more than ever before. Do this for your health and wellness too, kids will see you setting a precedent and follow suit . @kiren.rijiju @fitindiaoff @thevinodchanna . . . . #FitIndia #FitIndiaMovement #MondayMotivation #20DaysOfGratefulness #Day5
Paucity of time is a major reason for missing out on exercise for many. Let's utilise this 'precious' time to take care of ourselves by exercising at least 4 times a week and building a stronger immunity. Here's how you can pack in a proper routine using just the staircase. Practice this anytime during the day (preferably after an hour of eating). You don't need to come in contact with anyone else for it. Swasth raho, mast raho! . @thevinodchanna . . . . #MondayMotivation #COVID19 #SwasthRahoMastRaho #FitIndia #GetFit2020 #staysafe #stayhome #fitness #time
Vicky Kaushal's "Quarantine Stacking"
Vicky Kaushal sure knows how to "stack" workout equipment (at least one of his recent posts proves that). The actor posted a picture of several dumbbell kept at his home and wrote: "Work(out) from Home! #QuarantineStacking."
Workout Like Preity Zinta - All Credits To Her Dog Bruno
Preity Zinta's workout sessions are fun-filled and the credit goes to her pet dog Bruno. The actress showed us how to workout in a "mutually beneficial way" when you cannot ignore your pet, who keeps on interrupting you. Giving a sneak peek into "agility training with Bruno," Preity Zinta wrote: "When you have no choice, you find a mutually beneficial way to co-exist and work out. Here is a sneak peek at some agility training with #Bruno and yours truly." If you have a pet, you know what to do next.
Nothing like an improvised workout. Bruno gets to play tug-o-war ( it's great for building confidence and jaw strength in puppies ) and I get to do biceps curls Of course I could not do more than 7 cuz he's too heavy but we still did a few This pandemic may have kept us Indoors but it will NOT break our spirit. #lageraho #pzfit #stayhome #staysafe #day24 #quarantine #dutchie #dutchshepherd #dogsofinstagram #bruno #ting
