Jyotika in Workout Gear Says "Fitness Is Not About the Weight You Lose, But the Life You Gain"

“Fitness is not about the weight you lose, but the life you gain,” she captioned the Instagram video.

Jyotika is getting her sweat on – in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the actress shows off her fit figure in an exercise ensemble during her workouts. "Fitness is not about the weight you lose, but the life you gain," she captioned the Instagram video, a compilation of various workouts. How does the star approach diet and fitness? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Weight and Strength Training

In her latest post, Jyotika engages in a weight and strength training workout. 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



Jyotika practices Ayurveda, "A science told 3000 years ago by India, based on the belief that health n wellness depend on a delicate balance between mind,body n spirit," she wrote in a post. Took some time out for the most fulfilling 21 days of my life at the Rajah beach (Thrissur) A place which made me believe that true magic lies in nature and it's healing powers. Energy lies in the calmness of the mind n soul. N health is truly a balance of lifestyle. Let us Indians respect our country's greatest discoveries AYURVEDA AND YOGA, by practising it. And let us introduce this magical science to our next generations for a better and healthy future. Thank u to all the doctors at Rajah beach and Rajah island (Thrissur) for all the warmth and care."




Jyotika is a yogi. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains 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."



Jyotika is a hiker. Here she is on a hike in the Himalayan mountains. According to the National Parks Service, the physical benefits of hiking include:

  • Building stronger muscles and bones
  • Improving your sense of balance
  • Improving your heart health
  • Decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems
