Nikhil Khurana belongs to an army family, born and brought up all over India, though most of his education was in Chandigarh. He completed his bachelor’s (in commerce) from DAV College, Sector 10, Chandigarh. Here’s is a question-answer session with him:
• What does fitness mean to you?
Fitness for me is a way of life. I make sure to exercise every day. I don’t like going to the gym these days as I feel wherever you are, you can work out there itself. So, I do Calisthenics these days and I also have a chin up bar on the set.
• What is your fitness mantra?
The fitness mantra I abide to is, maintain regularity in your workout and eat right. I don’t work out for abs; I do it to remain healthy.
• How do you keep a healthy balance between your mind and body?
I try to keep a healthy balance between my mind and body by introspecting about life, I keep my mind calm and I believe that if your mind is calm, that reflects on your body too. A calm mind ensures a healthy body and keeps you away from illness.
• Following your demanding and hectic routine, how do you manage to stay fit and maintain a healthy lifestyle?
I have a chin up bar on the set of Jijaji Chhat Per Hain. So, whenever I get time on the set, I start doing pull ups or I go for a run since I usually don’t have the time to go to the gym. I am currently trying to improve my consistency in my workout routine.
• What kind of music do you like listening to while you work out?
It depends on my mood but usually I prefer high energy music as it keeps me going during any work out that I do.
• That one thing you don’t miss on a cheat day?
I can’t resist anything sweet. I love sweets.
• Any fitness tips for your admirers?
I would say, workout for at least an hour, whether it is yoga, gym or Calisthenics and make sure you eat well. So, stay fit and enjoy your life.
