Fitness & Women Safety

Over 50 DMs and emails asking me about safety while working out prompted me to do some research and write this one. In this post I talk about women who have taken up the fitness journey encountering harassment, and how  do we deal with it. I’d love know your thoughts too!  There are some personal examples and some examples that my readers shared with me (no names mentioned) Point here is to acknowledge and address harassment. Hope I can make sense to some of you :)  Do you: Avoid going for runs late at night or early in the morning when there are not too many people around? Avoid going to the gym at certain times to avoid running into certain men? Choose your workout clothes that spell MODEST just so that you do not attract eyeballs? Run/workout with self defense items in close proximity? Avoid certain parks because the parking…

5 Problems Women Face At The Gym : A Survey

The other day I was surprised to see how ZERO women had stepped into the gym during the weekend. I immediately put this up on my Instagram, asking women to tell me what makes them stay away from the gym, or what they think could be a valid reason fro women to stay away from workouts during the weekend. Most of the answers I got were along the lines of ‘I don’t have time’ ‘women need to take care of so much at home’ Fair enough, this is something that each of one us has to figure out on our own. But there are a few responses that I’d like to change. Read on to know my thoughts : People will stare: everyone is too busy doing their own thing to look at you and judge you. You need to keep your focus strong when you walk in to the gym.…

8 Reasons Why MultiFit Is A Great Idea

I have been working out at home for over a year now, and it’s taken me some time to realise the dos and don’ts of functional training. I’ve tried a bunch of routines, and figured out what worked for me, and even designed some to suit my fitness levels. I believe once you get used to functional training, there’s no way you’re going to enjoy any other form of workout. Which is why you might have noticed the reduction in the number of gym posts at my end. In fact things got so busy with the traveling and weddings and reunions that I opted for the HIIT routines simply because I was low on time. It’s now come to a point where I can easily take 30 minutes off for myself during a super busy day and complete a highly intensive workout routine. Point being – I love functional training.…

Work It Out!

Hello there! I’m back with some fitness gyaan. I found this particular HIIT exercise on Pinterest, and have made no changes to it whatsoever. It looks difficult, which is why I wanted to try it in the first place (have had to increase the intensity of workouts after the obstacle race I completed 2 weeks ago that had me running 12km on the hill, along with rope climbing, wall climbing, bar crossing, crawling and a whole lot of other jazz. Running on plain ground after that has been a JOKE)

Happy Birthday with RAW Pressery

Birthday week has started off on a very healthy note. RAW Pressery sent me 6 bottles of health juices on Monday and trust me the timing couldn’t have been better. As you know I have been working really hard to get back the four-pack I had last year. In related good news, I can now flaunt them off again. More of that later :D

My diet for the last 3 weeks has been made up of watermelons, watermelon juice, mangoes, bananas, tomato soup and a lot of protein in the form of chicken (grilled, baked) I have been tempted to eat a lot of junk food but I am extremely proud of my will power right now.  So receiving these bottles had me jumping up and down with joy because HELLO ABS!
