'Fit India Dialogue is an endeavour to involve citizens'
In recent times, the pandemic has ensured that several gyms have been shut down, with several fitness enthusiasts opting for workouts at home to keep themselves fit.
"Envisioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a People's Movement, the Fit India Dialogue is yet another endeavour to involve citizens of the country to draw out a plan to make India a fit nation. The basic tenet on which the Fit India Movement was envisaged, that of involving citizens to imbibe fun, easy and non-expensive ways in which to remain fit and therefore bring about a behavourial change which makes fitness an imperative part of every Indian's life, is being strengthened by this dialogue," the statement said.
Launched last year by PM Modi, the Fit India movement has hosted a plethora of events across several sports including The Fit India Freedom Run, Plog Run, Cyclothon, and Fit India Week. More than 3.5 crore people have registered for these activities across the country.
