“Fitness is my passion,” claims Ms Zoe Modgill, Founder and instructor at Studio 60, Delhi.
In her opinion, “A healthy body is not a thin body and a weighing scale is your worst enemy.” Women should focus primarily on their health, strength and lastly focus on weight loss. Women should focus more on strength training as it builds muscle, which helps in burning fat, instead of cardio workouts which impact joints and can lead pain, she advised.
“Fitness enthusiasts should follow proper workout regimes, eat well and healthy, follow a healthy lifestyle, have a positive frame of mind towards their body, inner self, be optimistic about themselves and also about life,” said Ms Modgill.
Talking about diet, the fitness expert, pointed out that since the genetic make up is unique for each individual, one diet definitely doesn’t suit all. Food is Fuel. Eat food, which is closest to its original form, thereby avoiding processed food. In order to get the optimum nutritional value one must have a balanced meal comprising of carbohydrates, protein and good fat, was her clear advice.
Zoe demonstrated a few key exercises that help enhance mobility and flexibility, important tools with the onset of age, when metabolism slows down.
The interactive event concluded with the thought – Fitness is definitely a way of life!!
