World Champion shuttler PV Sindhu has shown us how to add household items in your daily ‘Workout-From-Home’ routine. Emphasising upon health and fitness in this lockdown, Sindhu urged fans to embrace the concept of ​workout from home. In a video made by the athlete, she says that with everybody staying indoors it is advised to exercise and stay fit as well. She showed us that even daily household items like carpets, bottles and stairs can be used as equipment too.

Key Takeaways:

  • Through a video, PV Sindhu shows us how to use daily household items like carpets, bottles and stairs and make them a part of one’s daily exercise routine.
  • In the video, Sindhu showcases how ‘life as we know it’ has changed but not stopped.
  • “It is important to remember that we will tide through these times, we should remain fit and healthy through these times,” she said.

Sindhu, the first Indian woman to win a silver medal at the Olympics, said, “Given the unprecedented times we are living in, with all of us grappling to understand what the “new” normal is, it is easy to let our own wellbeing take a back seat. There is no substitute for hard work. We continue to deliver our best results at work but focus, on our fitness has taken a backseat.”

Sindhu further explained, “I strongly believe that now is not the time for excuses and we can continue our workout regimes while we stay indoors. I am proud to partner with Gatorade for a new initiative that aims to change the mindset of Indians and encourage them to drop all excuses, and “Workout-From-Home”. It is important to remember that we will tide through these times, we should remain fit and healthy through these times .”
