PUNE: Join MultiFit Gym for a unique and fun activity ‘Plogging’ on 23rd April 2022 in light of Earth Day. Before you rush through several ideas trying to find out what exactly is ‘plogging’, let us break it down for you. Plogging is a term derived from the Swedish term ‘Plocka upp’ which means ‘pick up’. Plogging is essentially a combination of jogging and picking up trash on the way. An activity that originated in Sweden has recently spread like wildfire among environment enthusiasts and athletes. MultiFit is popular for its holistic approach toward fitness- physical as well as mental well-being. As they host their very first Plogathon to raise more awareness towards fitness and motivate people towards sustainable living, join them this Earth Day for a fun activity! While fitness is the core of what they do, giving back to the planet is also something that is close to their heart.
What better way to combine two activities that not only ensure you incorporate a workout for the day but also contribute towards making the planet a better place to live. There are several health benefits to plogging. Studies have time and again proven the numerous benefits of exercising. Our lifestyle over the years has changed drastically, and with that our stress levels are at a constant high. A simple jog help release the happy hormones ‘endorphins’, which boost the mood and also help to alleviate stress. Plogging also helps boost the heart rate. Cardiovascular health can be a contributing factor to longevity. Plogging is a form of aerobic exercise that can help boost your heart health, improve endurance, enhance bone and muscle health and benefit overall well-being.
This activity is not limited to a single type of exercise, i.e, jogging, but also incorporates several other movements such as squatting, stretching, etc. as one has to bend and pick up trash/waste on the go. Last but not the least, what sets plogging apart from all other forms of exercise is that it ensures we all do our bit in taking care of our environment. By clearing clutter while you are on the move, you are looking after your health as well as the environment. It doesn’t get better, does it!
“At MultiFit we encourage all our members to practice sustainable living as much as possible. The environmental crisis that we are facing as a population is something that needs immediate attention and while there are organizations doing the needful, we as individuals should also do our bit in whatever way possible. This Earth Day we as a team was keen to take on an activity that would incorporate both fitness as well as giving back to nature. Plogging came across as the best activity! We are excited to see how it turns out!” says, Nasir Shaikh, Group CEO, The Lexicon Group of Institutes, MultiFit, and EduCrack.
Taking all the necessary steps to protect the environment, in the best possible manner is the need of the hour. This Earth Day MultiFit is extending its contribution to the planet to make it a better place to live.
