Celebrity personal trainer Aarti Jedhe shares her top tips for getting back into shape post-lockdown

Aarti Jedhe

Aarti Jedhe has worked with top businessmen and celebrities from Pune. And now the celebrity trainer is sharing some of her top tips for everyday Indians who are keen to get back in shape once the Covid lockdowns end.

Speaking on her tips, the ever so fit trainer, stressed that it was important to understand your own motivation in getting fit.

‘Firstly, I think anyone getting back to fitness or starting a new fitness regime should always find their “why”,’ She explained.

‘This will be your motivation and give you the drive needed to see your goals through. Diet and exercise go hand in hand but ease yourself into it.

‘Going too hard too fast can result in burnout, injury, or just giving up. Start adjusting your lifestyle slowly for a long-term commitment.’

When asked if diet or exercise is more important in getting fit, Jedhe explained that both are as important as each other.

‘Exercise is not only great for you physically but also mentally. Regular exercise not only helps with weight management but also, improves your sleep, improves brain function, and improves your overall health,’ She explained.

‘Aligning your diet with these benefits by eating healthy and what your body needs, is important to experience these benefits further.’

The Pune-based trailer also recommended intermittent fasting for better overall health.

‘It gives your body a chance to focus on more important things rather than digesting food. If done right, it can help with weight/fat loss and reduce the risk of some diseases. So I definitely recommend it,’ She said.

In a bid to motivate her customers, Aarti Jedhe has outlined how you can turn your housework into an exercise regime and why boxing into a pillow might be just the stress-reliever you need right now.


Just as you would normally workout early in the morning before work or after dark, come up with a relevant plan for you and stick to it.

‘Make sure you schedule in movement, hydration and healthy meal prep,’ Aarti Jedhe said.

‘This is essential for me to stay happy within my own body.’


If a catchy song comes on over the radio or on TV, dance to it.

If it makes you want to move and jump around the oxytocin hormone in your brain will only be elevated, lifting your mood and also burning calories all at once.

Forget what you know about a ‘typical workout’ and find movement in smaller things.


‘Try to squat, lunge, push and pull purposefully and mindfully with every move you do,’ A J said.

‘You’ll get a great workout without even thinking about it and may even find a new love for vacuuming your house and cleaning that pantry out.’

Instruments like vacuums and mops act as resistance to the movement, firing up your muscles.


While it can be hard to stop the snacking because you’re now working next to the pantry, try to resist it.

‘Stay busy and ensure you eat good, dense, filling nutrients when you do eat,’ she said.

‘And if you are going to hit the chocolate, do 20 press ups first.’


Zoom and FaceTime don’t just have to be used during a work conference.

Get your friends on board and try working out together like you’re all in a class, it will boost your motivation tenfold.

Find an exercise routine online and start watching it at the same time so you stay in time, and use cans of beans or heavy bottles as weights.


If you can, get outside for your vitamin D top up as it is so important for our mental health and emotional wellbeing.

‘If you can’t get outside, at least sit by a window where you can get some natural light,’ she said.

Those with a balcony or backyard should take full advantage of the situation by working out on them where possible.


Starting to feel a little bit stir crazy? If so, why don’t you take that anger and get rid of it.

‘Pick up a pillow, take yourself off into a quiet room on your own and punch that pillow – several times – however many it takes to make yourself feel calmer,’ Aarti Jedhe said.

Not only does it de-stress you, it also raises your heart rate and acts as a warm up to your workout.


Try incorporating a workout into the end of each day that helps to bring your stress levels down, lengthens tight muscles and improves posture.

‘This will help enhance good quality sleep too,’ A J said.

There are thousands of free yin yoga routines on YouTube that only require 10 minutes of your time.


During this time, everybody needs to remember to stop, breathe, connect and reset and Naz finds meditating great for this.

‘If you are struggling to do this, there are lots of great guided ones online. Five minutes is all you need.’

Your mental health is just as important as your physical fitness.
