Quarantine has got us all locked in our homes with no access to the outdoors, let alone the gym. Well, your gym bag might think it is of no use now, but Mahima Sethia, Founder of Fitness Flu doesn’t think likewise. There is something in your gym bag you can use for your workout at home. No, we are not talking about the resistance band but the humble towel that everyone does have at their home. She believes Exercise and Diet are like Marriage.
