Staying fit is more important than ever because of the polluted environment, our stressful sedentary lifestyle, and unhealthy food habits.
“Throughout human history, physical activity has always been an important part of our lives. Movement conditions our body, sharpens our minds, keeps us alert and efficient throughout the day,” explains internationally certified trainer Ashish Yakthumba of The Pump, Nepal’s first CrossFit and calisthenics gym, who has trained clients aged 15-90 years, from athletes to people with disabilities.
Says Yakthumba: “There is no excuse for not working out. You have to give at least 30 minutes to yourself every day, for your own wellbeing and overall health. Movement and exercise is one of the most underrated forms of medicine and meditation.”
