Fitness or Fitting In

Signing up for a 6-month or annual gym membership and showing up twice a week; relaxing yoga session followed by gorging on a plate of samosas ; morning walks that turn into communal news sessions. Association with fitness seems more a result of social conformity and makes us wonder if there is any real commitment to it. And as most ‘healthy’ people would agree, that fitness is more of a mental attitude and conviction rather than the physical stress/pressure one might assume. In such a scenario, while the Indian health industry seems to be booming we wonder if we really are on the path to a ‘fit lifestyle’ or is it solely about ‘fitting in’.

How seriously does India take its fitness?
