You have trained many celebrities till date! what is your own mantra of fitness ?

Its Pilates! Which is a form of exercise that focuses on the core muscles, the powerhouse of the body. These are four muscles located in the abdominal and lower back area of the body. The core incorporates all the muscles and works on flexibility and strength together. There is a strong connection between the mind and body, much like Yoga, and thus this mind-body relationship is the essence of the Pilates practice.

What would you suggest to our readers to attain and maintain Bikni Body Like Sonam Kapoor?
BnBl0uvCcAIVJfZ
The ideal bikini body workout plan includes the following:

Pilates: Thrice a week. It’s the best full body integration exercise and works to whittle one’s torso.

Weight training: Focus on the large muscles of the body, that is, the back, chest, legs and abs
Interval training: We did a lot of this during Sonam’s shoot for Khoobsurat. Interval training helps to build stamina and endurance.
Cardio: The heart is the most important muscle of the body so 30-45 minutes of cardio at least twice a week is essential. Sonam loves swimming which makes for a great cardio workout.
Nutrition: This is an important part of training. To get the perfect bikini bod, its 70-80% about your diet and just 20% about training. “The meal plans I create at Radhika’s Balanced Body are all personalized meal plans based on the client’s lifestyle, fitness goals, and any pre-existing medical conditions.
Here’s a sample of the meal plan Sonam Kapoor followed to her fabulous bikini-body.
We did an ovo-vegetarian diet plan (eggs for protein, no meat, no dairy) which worked very well for Sonam and allowed for some great inch loss.
  • Pre-workout in the morning: Juicifix cold pressed Go Green juice + fruit + black coffee
  • Breakfast: 2 eggs + 1 slice gluten-free bread
  • Snack: 1 cup pomegranate + Green tea + ¼ cup mixed nuts
  • Lunch: 2/3 cup cooked rice + ½ cup cooked lentils (dal) + ½ cup cooked vegetables (sabji) + ½ cup salad
  • Snack: Juicifix cold pressed fruit juice + ½ apple with ½ Tbsp all natural peanut butter
  • Snack: Grilled vegetable sandwich with Green chutney (mint, coriander)
  • Dinner: 1 cup vegetable miso soup
