Bollywood star Deepika Padukone firmly believes that fitness is not an option, but is part of her lifestyle.
The actor says little things like a 20-minute brisk walk around your building and taking stairs are good enough to maintain an average fitness level. Deepika also plays sports on outdoor shoots. If she can’t go to the gym, she swims or dances in her room.
Her routine consists of starting the day running for forty minutes, combined with weight training, while evenings were spent playing badminton for three to four hours, five times a week. The actor also insists that she never crash-diets.
The actor has now taken to a combination of gym and Pilates since a month with her trainer, Yasmin. Pilates is designed to build your body’s core strength and flexibility. This is done gradually through balancing, stretching and correct breathing techniques.
