There’s good news for fitness freaks in the city. Model-turned-actor Milind Soman will impart fitness lessons to residents at the end of this month. Soman met the civic commissioner to express his intention to conduct a few sport-related activities in the city.
After establishing himself as an international model, over the past few years, Soman has shifted his focus on fitness. He has undertaken several initiatives at national and international levels. He had also undertaken various sport-related activities in the past.
Sandeep Malvi, public relations officer, Thane Municipal Corporation, said, “Soman has volunteered to conduct small sport-related activities for Thane residents. This is likely to include yoga sessions, mini marathons and exercise sessions in the open gym or open spaces in the city. We will provide him the required infrastructure.”
Civic commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal has asked Soman to submit a detailed proposal on what he plans to undertake for the residents by the end of this week.
A sports officer requesting anonymity said, “We have a Krida Mahotsav every year at the end of November. Soman suggested that instead of a few sportsmen participating, he wants even the common people from the city to join the event. We are thinking of including small activities such as doing pushups, sit-ups, surya namaskar, rope climbing or playing age-old traditional games, which will be supervised by Soman.”
