Nia Sharma in Workout Gear Shares Squat Workout

Here is everything you need to know about her diet and fitness habits

Nia Sharma is sharing the secret to her glutes: weighted squats. In a new social media post the Indian actress gets her sweat on, showing off her amazing body during a vigorous workout routine. In the Instagram Stories clip shared with her 7.7 million followers, she demonstrates the glute-busting exercise to perfection. What other exercise methods help keep the star looking camera ready? Celebwell has the details on her top diet and fitness habits. 


Pole Dancing

Nia takes pole dancing classes. "It's such a Fancy being on a pole … except the body ache it brings along😅 … @lipsa893 you gotta make me a pro..and thanks a lot for this fun session. I am your no.1 student always:)" she captioned this post. Why should you dance? It helps build strength and promote flexibility, and also aids in weight loss and promotes heart health. 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.



Nia is a yogi. Harvard Health maintains that there is science behind the practice. "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."



Nia loves trekking. "Trekked Right upto the Peak.. (without a 🚁) #chandrashila #tungnathtrek," she captioned a series of Instagram photos and videos. 


Weight Lifting

"Wasn't the one to ever enter a gym but once you do, it kind of sucks you in," Nia captioned a post of herself weightlifting. Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving. Each week adults need 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity and 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity, according to the current Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.

Nia enjoys the stress-relieving perks of baths, which have been linked to better sleep and even found helpful to minimize anxiety and depression. One recent study even found that they may even boast cardiovascular benefits.
