Even af­ter a gru­elling day of bat­ting and field­ing - when all the other play­ers re­tired to their rooms ex­hausted - he cy­cled for an hour. And that adren­a­line rush com­pleted his day. Sachin Ten­dulkar’s ded­i­ca­tion to­wards fit­ness was al­ways a cut above! Our cover story (‘Fit & Fa­mous’) un­earths the un­told fit­ness se­crets of the mas­ter blaster. They are highly in­spir­ing, and will hope­fully mo­ti­vate all those of us whose big­gest ex­cuse when it comes to ex­er­cise is: I have no time. Chennai-based in­dus­tri­al­ist Dr Sam Paul is an­other per­son who be­lieves in the im­mense power of fit­ness. A businessman with six packs is a rare com­bi­na­tion, but Dr Paul’s zeal to build his six packs equals his drive to erect a ro­bust busi­ness em­pire. A su­per achiever at both, he is to­day one of Chennai’s big­gest fit­ness and cor­po­rate icons. Read ‘Suc­cess Story’ to know what trig­gers the man’s pas­sions… Know what trig­gers some of our Bol­ly­wood stars to stay fit too… While Amitabh Bachchan - eas­ily one of the fittest ac­tors for his age - re­veals that his films in­spire him to hit the gym, Varun Dhawan con­fesses that his fa­ther’s weight is­sues made him health-con­scious. Leaf through our ‘Celeb Talk’ for more fit­spi­ra­tion! …A very fit­spir­ing tip fit­ness guru Mickey Me­hta gave at a weight loss work­shop ‘Health & Nu­tri­tion’ held re­cently was, “Start with five min­utes of ex­er­cise daily, in­creas­ing it by five min­utes ev­ery day.” The mes­sage he drove home: Fo­cus on build­ing a habit – a mini ex­er­cise habit. Once the five-minute habit hap­pens as eas­ily as brush­ing your teeth, scale on to big­ger goals… And if all this fit­ness talk makes you think we are ex­er­cise-ob­sessed this month, then rest easy… We also wel­come the sea­son of chill and chillin’ with ar­ti­cles on win­ter drills and beauty care; nu­tri­tious Christ­mas good­ies; health ben­e­fits of the party sea­son’s most favoured drink - wine; and loads more… End­ing, with warm wishes for a merry Christ­mas! And grat­i­tude for all things big and small - it’s good for the heart and soul!
