Yuvraj Singh breaks the gender bias against Pilates

It is a funny culture to deem some fitness regimes as ‘manly’ or ‘girlish’. A true sportsperson can spot the difference between what is hardcore or not, irrespective of how a layman perceives it. In the same constant pursuit for fitness, cricketing star Yuvraj Singh has been training with Sameer Purohit in the new age fitness routine, Pilates to expand his realm of fitness. The sports star was recently spotted at Namrata Purohit Pilates studio with Sameer and his celebrity trainer daughter Namrata Purohit after an intense workout.


Namrata is one of the rising faces in the world of fitness and is the youngest certified Stott Pilates instructor in the world. She has been training and an array of celebrities like Jacqueline Fernandez, Lisa Haydon, Arjun Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Malaika Arora Khan, Esha Gupta and Nargis Fakhri. She is constantly striving towards making more and more people familiar with Pilates and do away with people’s misconception. To demonstrate how Pilates is no child’s play, she initiated a Pilates Teaser challenge that was taken up by many celebs in Bollywood.
