The #HumFitTohIndiaFit tweet by Union Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore a couple of weeks back has taken the country by storm. He came up with a unique challenge for the nation that inspires people of the country to start leading a healthier lifestyle. The Minister circulated his video message through twitter in a challenging way by doing push-ups continuously while talking about the challenge in the video. Doing push ups is challenging, doing it continuously is even more challenging and doing it while talking simultaneously is unimaginable for many! Of course, Mr. Rathore can do it as he is an Olympic medalist and a former professional shooter.
The Minister launched his video by first showering complements on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, praising the PM for his love for fitness and his ability to juggle efficiently between work and fitness. The ex-armyman did 10 pushups without a hint of a huff or a puff dressed in his formal work attire (disproving that athleisure clothes or tracks can only help you exercise) to initiate the challenge.
The Minister launched his fitness drive on social media urging people to exercise and start posting videos and photos on how they stay fit. He even requests each of us to throw a fitness challenge to our friends and expand the challenge loop in the maximum way possible. Mr. Rathore throwed his first challenge to Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli and badminton superpower Saina Nehwal.
Virat Kohli has gone one step ahead and has challenged our beloved PM of India who has accepted this challenge in the right spirit and posted his fitness video routine.
PM Narendra Modi Ka Fitness Routine
Mr. Narendra Modi is one of the latest high-profile individuals to take up the #FitnessChallenge that is driving the entire country to become a fitter one in which citizens post videos and photos of their daily physical activity.
In his video, the PM starts his day with Yoga, walks on a track inspired by the Panchtatvas or 5 elements of nature (Prithvi, Jai, Agni, Vayu and Aakash) rolling on a rock, walking on pebbles, circling a tree and practicing breathing exercise.
The campaign has gone viral and people across the nation are warming up to the fitness challenge-even the greatest business tycoons right from Anand Mahindra to the entire IPS force have taken up the healthy challenge.
Have You Taken Up the Challenge?
Some celebrities like Virat Kohli, Deepika Padukone and Mithali Raj have taken up the fitness challenge after being nominated while some other such as PT Usha have taken it up without being forced into the loop.
A nutritionist, doctor or gym trainer can only motivate people and chalk out a fitness plan for individuals. After that, it is up to us to take up the task seriously, work dedicatedly and achieve our goals successfully. Some helpful tips before taking up the challenge include:
AVOID FRAUD. EAT SMART.
