Fatima Sana Shaikh works out and works hard when it comes to her fitness. Whenever she needs to prepare for a movie role, she increases the intensity and frequency of her physical training, which includes sports training as well. “My sports training has actually been specified by my movie options, however, when I’m not on the task, my exercise regimen is based upon things that delight me. I can’t do the very same thing every day,” said the actress.
“Apart from practical training, I practice kick-boxing 3 times a week, and, on other days, dance. I do not have a specific regimen, although I train routinely. I’ve stopped pressing myself. I simply wish to be delighted about working out. When kick-boxing, I train with young boys. Because I am competitive, I take pleasure in taking on them.”
