Parks, gym, streets, highways- the group can workout anywhere, anytime.

One might think that actor Tiger Shroff is popular among youngsters for his superb dance skills. But that’s half true. The Bollywood hero’s physical stamina and jaw-dropping stunts are also inspiring young Delhiites, who have come out in groups to perform street workouts.

A group of fitness enthusiasts, who could not afford expensive gyms, have begun to follow this regime and are displaying stunts on the streets of Delhi. From India Gate, to Ugrasen Ki Baoli and even Connaught Place, keeping the iconic places in backdrop, these workout enthusiasts create and balance various geometric forms through human bodies.

Girls are also a part of this group, they do all the stunts like men.

“We perform stunts just like actor Tiger Shroff. Earlier it was a bit embarrassing to do workout in the parks as people kept gazing at us. But now it feels good when we perform stunts and people gather around,” says Anuj Vats.

Making a formation is their day to day task.

These youngsters, who train themselves by watching YouTube videos, dream to promote the sport and also represent India in world championships. Anuj Vats and Karan Mahour have opened gyms to train people, who are willing to attain fitness in an inexpensive way.

The group is not restricted to particular streets, India Gate is also their favourite place to do stunts.

Hand-stand on the highway.

This group, which also has women members, organises women’s self defence programmes and counsels drug and alcohol addicts. “It’s a mindset that only boys can do street workout. It’s not true. We work on breaking stereotypes. For a year now, I’ve been trained on strength, body balance and flexibility to prepare for street workouts. We might fall, but that’s when we learn to fly,” says Mahima Sethia.
