Did Anyone Say Milind Soman?

The model-actor never ceases to amaze us with his energy-filled fitness routines. He makes the best use of things or persons (you can say in Milind Soman's case) to do exercise. One of his posts features him using stairs to burn calories. "4th day of stairclimbing! Started with 45 mins and today 85 mins, so the going is good. Did about 200 floors, which is about 4000 stairs. My mother climbed 30 floors and Ankita (Milind's wife) climbed for 85 mins!" he wrote. He even did push-ups by lifting Ankita, We know, we now, just Milind Sonam things.

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!

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 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. This video is so inspiring, it is proof that it's never too late to start. She's gonna kill me for posting this, but I had to... Love you and your spirit mom...

A post shared by Shilpa Shetty Kundra (@theshilpashetty) on

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
