Dev Joshi the popular actor of Baalveer Returns the Sony SAB show produced by Optimystix is a fitness freak to the core.
Says Dev, “Fitness for me is a healthy body. Having six-pack abs or a chiselled physique has never been my priority. Fitness for me roots from a healthy lifestyle which enables me to perform every activity with energy and I try to incorporate that in my daily routine.”
On his fitness mantra, Dev states, “I feel my mother has a huge role in ensuring that I stay fit. So, I make sure that I eat whatever my mom is preparing for lunch as she plans my meal keeping in mind what is healthy for me. I also believe in eating in portions and it has helped me stay fit so far.”
On maintaining a healthy balance between mind and body, Dev quips, “Music is a powerful tool to rejuvenate your mind. Every morning when I sit for makeup on the sets of Baalveer Returns, I play some soulful music. It helps me start the day with a fresh mind. When I exercise, I prefer light background music as well. Even during the shots, I keep singing songs and that helps me stay stress-free and happy. For me, music is the key that ties my mental and physical health together and keeps me healthy.”
“With the demanding schedule, there hasn’t been much time to dedicate for the gym or any special training. After a shoot or in the morning, I like going for a run. It gives me an instant boost of energy. Whenever I am not shooting, I go to the gym where my trainers help me create a power-packed routine,” he adds.
On the food he cannot resist, Dev avers, “I really enjoy Gujarati Thali and I forget about fitness if I am ever served one.”
“I would like to urge and motivate all my young audience of Baalveer Returns to participate in all the physical activities in school and make sure you take out at least an hour to play your favourite sport. I also believe in the power of yoga and I feel everyone should add yoga in their daily routine as it has numerous benefits. I request everyone to not follow extreme diets or starve yourself to attain fitness. The path to fitness is to be happy first, rest will follow,” he states.
Dev, have a great time ahead!!
