We all want to do some exercise or indulge in some kind of sports everyday, however, we fail to do so due to a tight schedule and rigorous working hours. But one doesn’t always need a gym membership or free hours to do something active in their day. You can easily indulge in few exercises in your office or try to do something while commuting to work everyday.
Last week, BJP MP Rajyavardhan Rathore started a new social media challenge called #FitnessChallenge under which he showed his followers an exercise he likes to daily and asked fellow public personalities to share their own favourite to the world. The major idea that the Minister wants to push for the people seeing and trying their hand on #FitnessChallenge is ‘Hum Fit Toh India Fit’.
And, the #FitnessChallenge has already gone massive on social media. Various Bollywood celebrities, athletes and even Ministers are now joining in on the challenge. Check out some of the best from this social media trend.

Not just this, after Virat Kohli was challenged for the #FitnessChallenge and he completed it, he went on to nominate Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the challenge too. To his nomination, Prime Minister Narendra Modi came forward and said that he’ll soon post his own contribution to the trend.
While it does seem interesting, the entire thing didn’t go well with people on social media and the entire nomination and PM’s revert to it resulted in a floodgate of criticism. People started asking the PM as to why he hasn’t yet talked anything about the rising prices of fuel in the country and many other things. Even Congress President Rahul Gandhi came forward with his own comment on the entire thing and said, “Dear PM, Glad to see you accept the @imVkohli fitness challenge. Here’s one from me: Reduce fuel prices or the Congress will do a nationwide agitation and force you to do so. I look forward to your response,” Gandhi wrote on Twitter using the hashtag ‘#FuelChallenge’. Check out the entire thing here.

Did you take donation from #SterliteKillings #NiravModi #MehulBhai ? Your spokespersons don't answer on TV. The 'RSS thinkers', 'Political analysts' and 'independent' Anchors outshout anyone who asks this question? Can you please tweet! Easy #FitnessChallenge hai

On challenge or not, but it’s good to see noted personalities from different spheres of life coming forward for something like #FitnessChallenge.
