Shilpa Shetty is many things: a businesswoman, a mother, a writer. But when it comes to her career as a Bollywood superstar, two things come to mind: fitness and healthy eating. Having grown accustomed to seeing her onscreen, now you can see her on Shilpa Shetty, an app that will help to boost your health and fitness levels.
To start off, the app asks you for some basic info: age, height and weight. It then calculates your body mass index (BMI) and adds it to your profile. Based on this information, Shilpa Shetty suggests activities that might suit you: from a beginner’s programme to flat-belly training to stamina building. You choose.
Because Shetty is a renowned yoga practitioner, it was a no-brainer that the app would include an entire section dedicated to yoga practices. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know your Bhujangasana from your Manibandha Chakra – the app tells you that they’re for building strength and shows you the correct form for each pose.
There are handy yoga workouts to suit every level. If you’re a newbie, take a look at the Office Yoga programme in the beginners’ section, and practise simple workouts based around your office chair.
The app also offers lots of functional exercise programmes, from building core strength to cardio, as well as full, upper and lower body exercises. As with Yoga, the training videos in the Exercise segment also come with difficulty levels and a description of the benefits of each workout. Let’s say you pick the Bear Walk from the Core section, the app will tell you that it targets the triceps, deltoids, hip flexors etc.
Since healthy eating goes hand in hand with a well-rounded fitness regime, the app also features a library of free recipes for healthy, delicious dishes and videos in which Shetty shows you how to cook tasty meals.
With a subscription, you can access your fitness programmes and download all the videos you want, so you can keep up with your training even without internet connection. No excuses for missing out on a workout now – Shilpa Shetty is the perfect workout buddy.
