HYDERABAD: For most of us who are lazy to get up in the morning and hit the gym or yoga class, Gaysil Naubert, a Mumbai-based dancer, can be an inspiration as she spends at least six hours everyday on workout. “Fitness is very important for every performer. Mostly because it increases our stamina without which we won’t be able to perform for so long.”
While six hours of workout might look like an impossible task, Gaysil has divided it in parts to make it interesting and enjoyable. “My workout involves floor exercises, ballet barre exercise, skipping, jogging, malkhamb and thread mill,” reveals Gaysil adding, “Malkhamb helps me increase my strength”. She will soon be seen performing an item number in Kumar Raj’s Yahan Ameena Bikti Hai.
“Apart from stamina, regular workout also helps me to be more healthy, look better on stage and on camera and also makes me more flexible.” shares the multi-talented star who is trained in Flemenco, Tap, Bharatnatyam and Kathak.
The dancer who is has been training in ballet since she was a 12-year-old, enjoys barre workout. “Though it is the most difficult one, I enjoy it. If I feel I need some change in my workout pattern, I put on music and move to its tunes,” she shares.
Gaysil who is also involved in choreography and conceptualisation of events like Gladrags, product launches, award functions in addition to performing at weddings has quite a busy schedule. Asked how does she take out time for workout she says, “On busy days, though it is difficult to take out six hours for physical fitness, I make sure that I do my cardio which involves running, jogging, thread mill, etc., depending on the time I can spend on it,” she says.
It is not only her workouts that keep her fit. Gaysil says she also keeps and eye on what she eats. “Though I love binging on chocolates, I try not to eat too many of them. I eat fish but avoid meat,” she shares.
