You owe it to yourself

Kareena Kapoor Khan on why every woman must excercise in some form or the other.

Kareena Kapoor has always been fitness conscious. The diva was the first Bollywood actress to sport an athletic body in a swimsuit in Tashan, as opposed to the curvacious one, favoured by B-Town. When she drew flak for her size zero trend, that she triggered off, she quickly went back to her bootilicious figure. The yoga enthusiast works out every day of the week under the watchful eye of her instructor. She also makes it a point to run for some time every day at her fully-equipped home-gym.

The actress says “I think it’s wonderful that DNA has a marathon just for women. I want to wish all the ladies my very best!

Exercising, be it running or any other form that you choose for fitness, is important. It’s a one way street; once you make a commitment to fitness you work towards it, making continual progress down this path.

Not because it makes you appear thin, toned and young but because it helps you mentally as well. It makes you feel like pushing your barriers, and when you meet your goals, that feeling of achievement is incomparable.

Exercising is a non-negotiable aspect of my life along with eating right (food that’s local, fresh, seasonal). It’s important for every woman to be fit and healthy today. It’s something that every woman needs to do for herself. And the no-time excuse is not acceptable. I train smart, just about 150 minutes a week of exercise at the right intensity and that does the trick. I believe every woman must make time to invest in her own well-being. If you are not doing that, I urge you to start today.”
