Somewhere amidst our busy lives today, we compromise our fitness and health for other mundane things in life. A corporate job will get you a lot of things but not your peace of mind. With this idea in mind, India’s sports minister Rajyavardhan Rathore started a fitness challenge to initiate a spirit of a healthy lifestyle. He asked everyone to share their workout videos and secrets and even nominated Virat Kohli and Hrithik Roshan to take up the challenge.
Post pictures and videos of how you keep yourself fit and send a #FitnessChallenge to your friends on social media. Here’s my video 😀and I challenge @iHrithik, @imVkohli & @NSaina to join in🥊 pic.twitter.com/pYhRY1lNEm
