Actor-producer John Abraham, who is known to be health-conscious, now wants even the people working for him to stay fit. The actor, in fact, has started taking an active interest in the well-being of all his employees and even monitors their calorie intake.

A source close to the actor says, “John recently gifted his manager, whose work schedule was impacting her lifestyle, a bicycle. He also asked her to be particular about her work out and cycling schedules. Encouraged by this gesture, she has been cycling during her lunch breaks near the actor’s Bandra office.”

It doesn’t stop there. The source continues, “He has also been giving tips to his staff on what they should do to stay fit and has started keeping tabs on their calorie intakes. He doesn’t want them to neglect their health at any cost.”

John, who was last seen playing a RAW agent in Madras Cafe (2013), will next be seen in Welcome Back. Ask the actor about his latest attempt to promote fitness and he says, “I am particular about fitness and I feel like it is my duty to see to it that the members of my staff don’t neglect their health at any cost.”

John also owns a chain of gymnasiums and also recently purchased a stake in a Delhi-based hockey team a day before his birthday as a special gift to himself.
