Suniel Shetty, a film actor, producer and businessman, recently opened up about how fitness helped him not just personally but professionally as well.
Taking to LinkedIn, the 62-year-old shared a video explaining how being healthy and having structured life allowed him to make the best use of the opportunities that came his way. He also explained why he still prioritises fitness and why everyone needs to focus on their health.
In the caption of the post, Mr Shetty said, "I get asked about my fitness a lot. People are usually looking for a secret sauce or a magical fix. Unfortunately, there are none. The good thing though is that fitness is actually a lot simpler than it's made out to be. With an overload of information, we tend to complicate things. The great thing is, the HOW part becomes a lot simpler once you figure out the WHY part."

"Most importantly, (fitness) helped me to maintain discipline in everything else I have done," Mr Shetty said. Further, he also elaborated on what fitness means to him. He stated that it was the ability to carry out all the responsibilities through the day without any mental or physical strain and living without any major ailments.
