Malaika, who launched Reebok’s new range of walking products to encourage people to live a fitter, better lifestyle, believes eating right is the best way to maintain your health.
Here are excerpts from her interview with IANSlife:
What’s your fitness regime? How do you include walking in it?
I believe in having a routine that I choose to follow regularly. I start my day with a good morning session of yoga, and then I step outside to do a mix of other fitness activities like HIIT, walking, running, swimming, and so on. Walking is a great way to improve and maintain your overall health, and I make sure I do it for at least 30 minutes a day.
Which is your favorite exercise? How much time do you dedicate to exercise in a day?
My favorite exercise is doing yoga, as I always begin my day with it. I usually dedicate 60 minutes a day to exercising.
Please share some benefits that you had personally seen when you included walking in your regimen.
Walking is a risk-free form of exercise that helps you to maintain your overall health. When I feel I have put on a little weight, I think walking is an effective way to reduce that weight, and I have also seen a lot of toning in my legs and overall body while I indulge in walking as a regular fitness exercise.
While traveling, how do you take care of your fitness regime?
I always make sure I dedicate some time to my fitness routine even when traveling, as exercising gives me inner peace and keeps my outlook positive.
Are you strict about your diet?
I keep making changes in my diet to see what suits my body and provides the maximum benefits. Everyone’s body is diverse and reacts differently to the intake of food.
Any fitness advice to readers?
Each individual has their own fitness goals which they want to achieve. My only advice to my readers is to follow a routine, eat right and work hard to balance your body, mind, and soul to the best of your abilities and become the definitive version of yourself.
