If you’re the sort of person who is vying for a flawless figure, this may help. You can now be part of Sunny Leone’s fitness routine with her DVD, Super Hot Sunny Mornings, created in association with her holistic health guru, Mickey Mehta. It includes a series of rigorous morning exercises to help jump-start your day.
After practicing yoga for over twelve years (even through her pregnancy), Lara Dutta turned her dedication to exercise during pregnancy into a DVD that focuses on prenatal yoga. The thought came to her after she realised that pregnancy may require a change in her fitness regime, but that didn’t mean giving up on exercise entirely. The 50-minute-long DVD talks about a prenatal routine followed by two meditation techniques and is called Heal with Lara.
This Bollywood diva best known for her tall, lean figure, has learnt to embrace yoga as part of her fitness routine. After learning almost all there is to learn, Shilpa Shetty decided to turn her inclination towards Ashtanga Yoga into a fitness series in which she skilfully performs various yoga poses that are essential to stay physically fit. This has been a favourite for years. We especially love how she also talks about spiritual and mental health in her DVD, Shilpa’s Yoga.
Bipasha Basu made news when she came up with Love Yourself, a way to advocate her love for fitness. She introduced two more DVDs following the first, which had a 30-minute intensive dance routine workout and exercises to strengthen bones as well as for muscle co-ordination. The DVD talks about her disciplined lifestyle and well planned workouts for those who share a similar passion for fitness.
Who doesn’t envy Kim Kardashian’s (almost unrealistic) figure? While we can’t really say we could work towards it, Kim K came up with a fitness DVD called Fit In Your Jeans by Friday. The three-disc set focuses largely on aerobics and claims to banish those love handles back to where they came from. She manages to put in few of her favourite challenging moves in a fun way to get your adrenaline rushing, and promises an ultimate body sculpt in a week!
