MultiFit organised their first Plogathon to raise awareness towards fitness, keeping along the vision of sustainable living in mind. MultiFit believes is holistic approach towards fitness which includes both physical and mental well-being and the nature has always been a source of metal peace for everyone. This event by MultiFit was their way of giving back to the nature.
The event was organised on Saturday morning. A 3 km jog was planned where the participants were seen picking up the trash as part of the plogathon. People from different age groups, fitness enthusiasts, nature lovers were part of this activity and took this initiative very seriously. Plogging has now been considered as a complete warm up routine as one has to stretch, bend, sit or squat to pick up the trash while jogging. The plogging activity was followed by a fun-based game that entertained the participants and kept their enthusiasm high.
The trainers at MultiFit encouraged and helped the participants throughout the session. The participants were given a certificate of appreciation for their love for fitness and nature. The event ended with a healthy refreshment session to boost up the energy.
“Plogathons are an effective mechanism of exercise and is seen as a complete work out. Other than working out for yourself, it also encourages cleaning up the roads thus helping to keep the environment clean. We are happy to see that our first plogathon has got tremendous response from the people. The love for nature is there in everyone’s heart but it needs a little push to do something for it. We are trying to give that push and encourage people to live a healthy life with a clean environment” says Shaleen Gupta, COO- MultiFit”
MultiFit does not promote just physical fitness as a healthy form of living, they believe a peaceful mind, a happy heart and healthy lifestyle is better than six pack abs.
“The active participation of our members made this initiative successful. We at MultiFit started Plogathon with the idea of a fit body and a clean environment. With this initiative we endeavoured to highlight the need for a healthy planet just as much as a healthy body. It gives us immense pride and pleasure to say that the World Earth Day Plogathon Drive organized by MultiFit was a huge success. We thank each of our members & participants for making it successful.”, says Mr. Nasir Shaikh, Group CEO, The Lexicon Group of Institutes, MultiFit & EduCrack.
