For years every time my trainer said ‘pull up’ I would fake a head ache , a bad day at work ,a stomach ache, tooth ache, my non-existent puppy is terribly sick and I have to leave blah blah blah . So although this is far from a pull up I am glad that I finally have decided to try. We are never too old to change . Fitness for me has never been about looking good , it is about discipline , respect , confidence and strength . #humfittohindiafit I challenge @upasanakaminenikonidela @shilpareddy.official and @rakulpreet
