"Concentration, balance and agility put to test."

Gautami Kapoor is balancing in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the Indian actress and model shows off her impressive balance. "The ramp you walk on is the ramp you own!!!! Failed the first attempt but tried again!!!!! If I can do it so can you !!! A big thank you to @theshilpashetty who motivates me and makes me strive better in my fitness journey. Concentration, balance and agility put to test," she captioned the Instagram video. How does the 49-year-old approach diet and fitness? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 



Gautami is big into pilates. "That's thé wonderful thing about pilates, it looks easy until you try to do it," she joked in one of the many videos she has posted of herself doing pilates, a great workout per the Mayo Clinic. It "strengthens the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health." It can also promote longer, leaner muscles, injury prevention, relief from stress and back pain, enhanced athletic performance, and heightened mind-body awareness.


Strength Training

Gautami also spends a lot of time at the gym lifting weights. "Don't decrease the goal. Increase the effort🔥🔥The 30kg day🏋️‍♀️" she wrote in a caption. According to the Mayo Clinic, strength and weight training help reduce body fat, preserve and increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently. Strength training may also help you:

  • Develop strong bones
  • Manage your weight
  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Sharpen your thinking skills



Gautami is an avid dancer and loves taking Zumba classes. "My life mantra these days — WORRY LESS ZUMBA MORE," she wrote about a video. Dancing is a great workout for many reasons. Not only does it build strength and promote flexibility, but helps you lose weight and even promotes cardiovascular function. A 2016 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine determined that people who engaged in moderate-intensity dancing were 46 percent less likely to develop heart disease or die from it than non-dancers. In comparison, moderate-intensity walkers were just 25 percent less likely to suffer heart health issues.


Goal Setting

Gautami understands that getting in shape takes time. She sets goals and works toward them. "Long way to go….. but getting there slowly !!! Flab to flat…. hopefully some day!!!!one day at a time 💪🏾💪🏾.." she captioned a post earlier in her health journey. 



Gautami is also a yogi, a great body-mind workout according to Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."
