Everything has a positive side to it–it’s just a matter of how we look at it. For us fitness freaks, this time of lockdown is like unearthing a treasure. Why? Well, who would have thought that during lockdown celebrity fitness trainers will go full throttle on the internet to help us stay in shape. From live sessions to personalized videos–social media is loaded with yoga, pilates, HIIT, tabata, zumba, and whatnot. 

In fact, you can see both Indian fitness influencers and celebs using household stuff like water bottles to do strength training. Recently, Sara Ali Khan did a live video session with a brand where she used wine bottles to tone her body. Interesting, right?
