Setting up gyms for them is an important move to encourage them to start making choices to live a healthier life by choosing to be holistically fit.”
Mr. Ghosh further added, “For us at IndiGo, being healthy is not just about physical fitness, but it’s also about creating fitness into everything we do – be it our operations, customer relations or financial stability of the firm. We believe it starts with being fit as individuals. With the launch of this gym in Kochi, we hope to stimulate a healthy lifestyle amongst our police personnel and take this FitToFly initiative to a newer level.”
The FitToFly gyms will be fully equipped with multi-purpose machines, cross trainer, bench press and other facilities.
