National, April 30, 2017: In its ongoing efforts to inspire people about fitness and healthy lifestyle, IndiGo collaborated with one of India’s leading fitness influencers and trainers Tarun Gill to host ‘TG Connect’ Conclave as part of its flagship FitToFly programme under IndiGoReach – company’s CSR initiative. With an enthusiastic participation from over 675 Mumbaikars, the conclave celebrated the journeys of fitness role models from different fraternities and emphasised on the importance of following a holistic approach to fitness and lifestyle.
The conclave brought together inspirational personalities who have showcased extra ordinary commitment to fitness including distinguished names from bollywood and entertainment fraternity such as Actor, Model and Bodybuilder Sahil Khan; National Wrestler champion Jadgish Kaliraman who coached Salman Khan and Anoushka Sharma for Sultan; Actor and ‘Mr. India and World 2015’ Thakur Anoop Singh; Two Time Ironman Triathlon winner Abhishek Mishra; and Founder – Case Paradox Navin Ansal who narrated their fitness transformation journey and dispelled myths related to health and lifestyle. This is the first time ever that these fitness gurus have come together to ignite the will in Mumbaikars to lead a fitter life.
Commenting on the conclave, Mr Tarun Gill, “Through TG Connect, that brings together India’s top athletes and coaches, my mission is to create a community of fitness enthusiasts who can inspire each other to break all barriers that come their way in building a fitness regime. I am excited to collaborate with IndiGo for the second leg of TG connect in Mumbai and thank Aditya Ghosh, and his team for their continued support and encouragement to this initiative. I am personally inspired by FitToFly and all the great work being done under the programme.”
Speaking on the initiative, Mr. Aditya Ghosh, President and Whole Time Director, IndiGo said, “At IndiGo, we believe in being fit in every sense of the word and this initiative resonates with us. We have always striven to create an atmosphere that instils our fitness belief in our employees and beyond. It reflects in everything we do- the way we go about our business or the way we run our operations. Through this conclave, we are extending our efforts to take this culture beyond the workplace and inspire people to adopt a more physically active lifestyle. I am happy that Tarun Gill has started this fitness movement through TG Connect and we whole heartedly support him in his initiative.”
IndiGo collaborated with Tarun Gill in December 2016 to launch FitToFly, a year-long programme that aims to create an environment for fitness and healthy lifestyle not only for its employees but also for the community at large. Through this partnership, Tarun Gill, will take IndiGo’s fitness mantra forward amongst enthusiasts including differently abled youth through his health workshop series ‘TG Connect’.
