Delhi | Updated: October 27 2017 5:38 pm The movement towards a positive self-image is a very important step in the evolution towards having a holistic approach to fitness (Source: Thinkstock Images) Top News We’ve come a long way since the exercise revolution of the 1980s when high-powered aerobics workouts were solely responsible for supporting the leg warmer industry in the US Or the hardcore bodybuilding industry popularised partly by the legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger through the ’90s that spawned the rise of performance enhancers Through the years several fitness trends flared up as quickly as they fizzled out While some stayed their course others took on different variations on a classic theme Just like with every other aspect of our culture our approach to fitness evolved too In 2017 fitness became even more accessible to a wider audience A big reason for this is the staggering rise of budget fitness chains across the country that is constantly pushing costs down to the affordable end and luring customers with no annual contracts an embrace of the latest technology and 24-hour access Largely this is a positive trend Coupled with this is the new wave of consciousness that puts more emphasis on mental health as a measure of overall well being Undoubtedly we are living in a very rich time for health and fitness not only in terms of knowledge and a wide array of choices it presents but also self-awareness about what works for us Now more than half-way through 2017 we look at some of this year’s major trends and examine what they mean for your larger mental and physical fitness Atmosphere inside gyms is changing for the better The average knowledge base of gym trainers is improving because consumers too are scouring the Internet to do their own research on the exercises they are being taught (Source: Thinkstock Images) The new wave of fitness consciousness is partly spurred by a change in the general environment in gyms that have made getting in shape a little more conducive Due to stiff competition gyms across the country have now realised that offering consumers good quality equipment and the latest technology is no longer a luxury at a competitive price point Exercise science specialist and fitness expert Deckline Leitao agrees: “Though the cost might be less most fitness franchises know that providing good quality equipment to the clients is no longer a luxury but rather a necessity to stay in the business This is a far cry from the days when gyms could do with basic equipment” More importantly the average knowledge base of gym trainers is also improving because consumers too are scouring the Internet to do their own research on the exercises they are being taught So now there’s more of a dialogue between the trainer and the customer There’s also growing awareness in this industry that mental health is just as important as physical health You can expect personal trainers and gyms to factor this in when they dish out advice Workout is always better if done together There will always be a demand for group fitness camps simply because there are many who need a group environment to stoke their competitiveness (Source: Thinkstock Images) In recent years group fitness classes evolved significantly moving away from the usual legs glutes and core training to more customised workouts like intense step aerobics HIIT cardio kick-boxing etc There are largely two reasons for this shift to boot camps: First is due to the difficulty in finding decent personal trainers at a reasonable price point Second is not feeling motivated enough to exercise alone What greatly helps consumers is that some of these boot camps are devised by credible fitness experts in the industry delivered through big fitness chains who pay attention to the syllabus “The greatest advantage of boot camps is that you work out in a group and over time build a sense of belonging to the trainer class club and group This helps people push themselves not just to train harder but also to look forward to making it to the class” says Leitao One of the fitness industry’s leading experts Kaizzad Capadia who also runs his own establishment K-11 Fitness Management says there will always be a demand for group fitness camps simply because there are many who need a group environment to stoke their competitiveness and always end up exerting more in a group than when training alone “The GroupX activities that truly make sense are Intense Step-Aerobics Spinning (Indoor Group Cycling) Combat Cardio Classes that borrow kicks and punches from martial arts” Capadia however cautioned that resistance-based weight training workouts are best learnt and performed on a one-on-one basis with a certified personal trainer A push towards a more positive body image Fitness is undergoing a transformation where some mindful fitness trainers are now focusing more on helping people change the way they feel about how they look rather than transforming their appearance (Source; Thinkstock Images) The biggest behavioural change is the gradual shift towards a positive body image perception among people In the past few years partly due to outspoken body-positive movements across the world people have started to challenge what society deems ‘acceptable’ as fit There is also an increasing dialogue about unrealistic beauty standards peddled by fashion and health magazines and the underlying realisation that getting fit doesn’t mean rippling six-pack abs The net result is a rise of a new generation of people who are also more emotionally sound Fitness is undergoing a transformation where some mindful fitness trainers are now focusing more on helping people change the way they feel about how they look rather than transforming their appearance Leitao says this movement towards a positive self-image is a very important step in the evolution towards having a holistic approach to fitness especially in India which started off in the olden days with healthier and natural icons and overtime got inspired by unrealistic physiques and figures “Probably the cultural fitness clock has turned full circle and people have realised that the natural and realistic way is the real deal” he adds People are making fitness gadgets work for them than the other way round Though fitness trackers can motivate one shouldn’t become too reliant on them (Source: Thinkstock Images) When wearable gadgets were first launched people would follow them blindly and go with whatever fitness goals they would throw up to an average user Now things are changing Instead people are now tweaking these wearable gadgets to fit their personal needs and achievements It’s safe to say that we are now out of the initial gimmicky stage Some of the statistics that wearable gadgets analyse from our activity now seem to make more sense as we are now embracing them as legitimate tools that can usher in significant changes in our lifestyle But don’t rely too heavily on wearable fitness gadgets says Leitao He says at the end of the day it’s the application of the gadget and not the gadget itself that will help you achieve your goals “Don’t be the person who ends up buying and talking about all the latest fitness gadgets and finally ends up storing them” Capadia adds that though fitness trackers can motivate one shouldn’t become too reliant on them “They should work for us not enslave us” he said Fitness industry has finally embraced online Only last century did the Internet came into being and video-calling applications like Skype have been around since early 2003 But the strange bit is that only now has the fitness industry embraced the advantages of reaching out to consumers online through booking personal trainers Online coaching classes haven’t yet taken off in India as it has US in the past decade But the welcome change now is that it’s easier to book a personal trainer than ever before There is a host of websites that offer this service from an hourly to monthly basis Which means consumers now have more choices and are able to book someone who is best suited to their requirements There are also several online consultation platforms that connect bodybuilders fitness experts physiotherapists yoga teachers weight-loss experts with people who don’t mind going that extra mile for sound advice and are willing to pay for it For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by Irfan Habib | Updated: March 11 2017 12:04 am The assassination of Bairam Khan painted by Tulsi and Triyya (from the V& A Museum); Abdur Rahim as an old man a portrait by Hashim (circa 1626) Top News Book-Attendant Lords: Bairam Khan and Abdur Rahim Courtiers and Poets in Mughal India Author-TCA Raghavan Publishers-Harper Collins Pages 388 Price- Rs 699 This book consists of the biographies of two Mughal nobles father and son who played prominent roles over a period of almost nine decades during the lifetimes of three Mughal rulers Humayun (reigned 1530-56) Akbar (1556-1605) and Jahangir (1605-27) Bairam Khan (died 1561) was crucial in protecting Akbar during the period of his regency (1556-60) the story of his great power and then fall being a staple of textbook history of the Mughal empire Abdur Rahim brought up under the great Akbar’s eyes is now known mainly for the Hindi (or rather ‘Bhasha’) poetry ascribed to him and for his patronage of poets and painters during a long career as a courtier and commander that ended only with his death in 1627 The story of the lives of these two men tells us much about not only how the Mughal empire functioned as a political and administrative machine but also about what the cultural milieu was like at the time at least at elite levels It can be said without reservation that Raghavan has provided as detailed and critical a narrative of the careers of the father and son as one could wish for Naturally the book in its bulk concerns Abdur Rahim for our knowledge of Bairam Khan’s early life remains limited The author disclaims any knowledge of Persian the main language of his sources yet he has explored practically every relevant text that has been translated into English or Hindi and has read almost everything that has been written to date on the themes of his concern Indeed Raghavan displays a very accurate understanding of the political and cultural currents of the time and he is able to extend a scrupulously careful enquiry into the process of recovery of Abdur Rahim’s “Hindi” verses which seemingly began to obtain much attention only during the 19th century The only significant translation of a relevant Persian work he seems to have missed is Arif Qandahari’s Tarikh-i-Akbari essential reading for the last phase of Bairam Khan’s life the translation being that of Tasneem Ahmad published in 1993 The regret still remains that so careful and conscientious a scholar should have had no direct personal access to Persian texts which has meant that Abd’ul Baqu Nahavandi’s “authorised” biography of Abdur Rahim Khankhanan the massive but untranslated Ma’asir-i-Rahimi has remained largely a closed book to him and so also the recently discovered record of Jahangir’s conversations (November 1608-December 1611) published under the title Majalis-i-Jahangiri which he does not refer to though it sheds interesting light on Jahangir’s relations with Abdur Rahim On 8 April 1611 for example we find Jahangir calling for his own spectacles to help Abdur Rahim (‘Khan Khanan’) scrutinise for him the contents of the seal of Shah Abbas I of Iran This and other references to Abdur Rahim in the Majalis show that Abdur Rahim’s earlier lack of success in the Deccan did not yet affect his high status at the court or his proximity to Jahangir Raghavan makes a laudable effort to assign Abdur Rahim’s ‘Hindi’ compositions to different phases of his life That he wrote verses in that language is beyond dispute but whether individual compositions ascribed to him are really his is difficult to establish But Raghavan has presented us with such evidence as exists as conscientiously as possible; and for this as indeed for his whole work he deserves our gratitude The tomb in Nizamuddin Delhi where Abdur Rahim is buried Throughout the book but especially in his chapter ‘Afterlife’ and ‘Epilogue’ the author added much to this reviewer’s knowledge It is satisfying to know that though there seems to be no road named after Bairam Khan in Delhi or Agra he is an officially recognised national icon in post-Soviet Turkmenistan Not to be overlooked are the illustrations (Mughal period paintings and photographs of buildings associated with Abdur Rahim) that the author provides us in the middle of the book The portrait of Abdur Rahim Khankhanan by Hashim that forms Plate VI and also appears on the back cover has an endorsement in the characteristic hand of Jahangir (who abstained from marking dots) This endorsement reads: ‘Excellent likeness of Khankhanan Sipahsalar — painted by Hashim’ Curiously the author misses the significance of this certificate of accuracy furnished by Jahangir himself One feels certain that the book would soon need to be issued in a new edition It would be best if the misspellings and occasional misrenderings of Persian words and in one case of a Turkish verse are corrected by a competent linguist However these misprints do not detract from the value of the present work which both the general
