Health tips from Baqar Nasser who is the founder and organiser of Spinnathon-

"Training too easy will not make you burn much of calories,where as training excessively will not only give you weight loss but also will burn your muscle. That’s why what I say is DON’T TRAIN HARD BUT TRAIN SMART. One also need to take care of the diet. Diet plays a very important role in life. If you are burning calories by doing any form of exercise, whether swimming, cycling, running, jogging, skipping or any format of exercise even weight training, but if you don’t eat right,everything will just bounce back.

You are burning around 500 to 1000 calories but consuming upto 2000 to 3000 calories, its not going to make sense. You will definitely become stronger in life but you wont achieve that look in the body that you desire. You need to take care of your diet program. Third comes is your sleep and one need to take rest, recover and recharge for the next day because being fit is not the only criteria, our daily life is our main criteria.

So if you don’t sleep, you wont be able to have a normal daily life. So your training comes in, your diet comes in and your sleep comes in. So eat, Sleep and workout.


Spinnathon is happening because of the combined efforts of the complete organizing committee; the right hand man of Baqar Nasser, however Sanket Chheda has been the driving force behind the entire operation. At a very young age of 20 this lad has taken it upon himself to make the event bigger and better than ever before!
