Sonu Sood has always been at the forefront of noble causes and has always contributed to the society in his own way. This time, the talented actor and fitness freak has gone a step ahead and gifted cycles to his gym members on his recent visit to his hometown in Moga, Punjab.
Not many are aware of the fact that Sonu owns a spacious gym in Moga (Punjab) with all modern facilities and all the fitness enthusiasts have been using the services of his gym free of cost.
Like his good friend Salman Khan, who distributed cycles to street kids a few years ago, Sonu too recently distributed more than 50 cycles to his gym members so that they could travel to the gym daily on cycles, which is again a good form of exercise.
Sonu informs, “I have been cycling for many years now, as I believe it’s one of the best forms of exercise. Most of the gym members who stay far had to depend on public transport while some used to drive their motorcycles. But I believe cycling all the way to the gym will help them keep fit. My aim is to see eco-friendly and healthy Punjab. Moga is connected to 80 villages and most villagers walk miles to go to their places of work or come to my gym. People I have given the cycles to are poor and come from far-off villages. They usually travel by bus or get a lift on a bike to come to the gym.
“Apart from being eco-friendly, it is especially feasible in Punjab to use cycles on wide roads as bus services are not that good. It’s quicker for them to reach their destination and remain fit too but most of them can’t afford cycles. What they earn daily they earn and spend. They can’t come regularly to the gym as they miss the bus and I want them to go regularly. People from the villages don’t know anything about fitness and I want them to become more aware. By cycling they burn their calories while doing their work also like the milkman,” Sonu adds.
