Women’s Day 2020 is around the corner, and to celebrate the inspiring role of women around the world to secure women’s rights and building more equitable societies, HRX organized a special event recognizing the ‘Super 20’ women of Angel Express Foundation, an NGO working for the betterment of school going children from slums.
Held on 28th February, the activity was organized at a Cult fitness centre in Mumbai, and noted actors like Priya Banerjee and Shivaleeka Oberoi graced the event. The super 20 women various fitness workshops like dance fitness, boxing and had an informal chit chat with the celebrities on tips to stay fit while juggling busy schedules, diet etc.
Speaking on the event, Priya said, “Fitness is one of my favourite things to do, it is something I look forward to in a day through my cardio, weight training whatever it is. The fact that we are actually promoting it and telling women to be fit and strong, I think it’s a great initiative and I had a great time today.
Shivaleeka Oberoi added, “The overall experience was inspiring. Mental fitness is as important as physical fitness, and the women I met today do exactly that by educating children which is amazing. I’ve come back home motivated and I’m glad that I tried something new. I don’t stick to a fitness routine so this is something new that I tried and it really worked out well. It targets entire body as opposed to a particular body part. I was really amazing and super positive.”
Afsar Zaidi, founder and enabler, Exceed Entertainment, said, “With this initiative HRX aims to commemorate the inspiring role of women around the world, highlighting how fitness can elevate their strength in achieving their dreams. HRX is a fitness brand for men and women alike. Women’s fitness and women in fitness are as important, visible and commonplace today as were men a few years ago. As a brand we value and respects these women for pulling off a myriad of roles and at the same time being able to take care of them. On the occasion of women’s day we celebrate such spirited women from AXF who volunteer to take care of children’s future and with this celebration HRX tries to bring small doses of joy to them by getting them to run, dance and sweat at the fitness and happiness sessions at Cult.”
