He’s known for his dedication towards fitness, but now, it looks like professional sportsmen too are impressed with actor Akshay Kumar’s fitness regime.

This explains why whenever boxer Vijender Singh and cricketer Harbhajan Singh are in Mumbai, they choose to work out at the actor’s home.

“Akshay has such a strong image when it comes to fitness and sports that Vijender and Bhajji feel comfortable with him. They exchange tips about various work-out techniques and try work out methods such as boxing, sparring and a lot of cardio exercises,” says an insider. These gym meetings also serve as bonding sessions.

The actor has a special gym at his Juhu home. “It’s not like their training sessions happen often, since all of them are busy with their respective careers. But whenever Akshay and the others are in town, they do meet,” the insider adds. Vijender confirms the news, saying, “Yes, whenever I am in Mumbai, I work out with Akshay bhai.” Incidentally, Vijender will make his Bollywood debut with Fugly, which is an Akshay production.
