Mukesh Bansal likes going on walks. Usually, it’s around a couple of beautiful South Bangalore lakes, Haralur and Agara Lakes, rejuvenated and maintained by local citizens. Other times, it’s in a new park behind his four-storey Cure.fit HQ in the hip HSR neighbourhood. Late one day last week, Bansal had clocked 8,221 steps by 3 PM.
Less frequently—twice a week—he attends a fitness class.
“I have realised that for good health, you don’t need to do one or two hours of workouts every day,” he said. “I think even doing 20, 25 minutes two, three times a week is sufficient to get your body moving.”
Science supports his claim that physical activity is important for good health.
