My work schedule keeps on fluctuating. That’s the most challenging thing but generally, club schedules are on from 7 till midnight.

Q) How do you manage to find time for your workouts?
During my off days I generally have a super workout and the rest of the working days, I feel like sneaking into my gym since I hate missing out. I generally hit my gym in the afternoon or else before I go to my show I quickly wrap it up in an hour.
Q) What kind of diet and meal timings do you follow?
I try to have at least 6 meals a day but since I am not a foodie I try to have small meals but frequently and generally I try to have clean meals.
Q) What fitness advice do you have for men who have busy and odd working schedules?
A small piece of fitness advice will be – it’s your body that’s gonna be with you all day long so you must give it an hour every day to strengthen it, bring more power in yourself mentally and physically.
Q) According to you which is the best time of the day for a workout?
According to me, it’s the afternoon since I get my proper sleep and two meals at least before I hit the gym. So I am full of energy, stamina, and power.
Q) 3 tips for staying fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Three tips will be, to start working out maybe in the gym or running and walking in your society. Say no to junks. Green veggies should be a compulsory part of the maximum meals.
