'A fit body facilitates a fit mind'

‘Corporates are waking up to fitness needs’

Fitness, as an industry, has to grow and the people of our nation can benefit from it, but it can only be done with the help of the government, corporates and increasing awareness through the media, says Mr P. Vivekanand, Managing Director, FitnessOne.
“For instance, more fitness centres can open if Customs duty is reduced to a manageable level, considering there aren’t many R&D (research and development) facilities in India in the area of equipment manufacturing,” he adds during a recent interaction with Business Line. We had met, over lunch, on an otherwise sleepy Sunday afternoon, but Vivek is on high alert when talking about fitness.
