1. Exercising in India means going to the akharas.

“Yes, almost all cities have gyms. Even villages have traditional gyms called akharas, but they’re more like wrestling clubs. Gym cost may range from 700 INR (12 USD) to 10,000 INR (180 USD) per month, depending on which part of India you live in and what kind of gym you go to. A lot of smaller gyms mostly have free weights, a treadmill, and an exercycle.” Says Reddit user one_brown_jedi. Between $12-$180 is quite a large difference to pay for your membership – hopefully, they are looking at the pros and cons of each gym.

They continue, “Yes, a protein supplement is widely available and is quite cheap. If you buy in bulk, then it’s cheaper. We don’t have many gym rats; most are people trying to stay in shape. Exercise is not a common thing; most people are way out of shape. Our diet is mostly carbs and no protein.” Again, this shows that no matter where you live and the amount of exercise you get, your health needs to start in the kitchen. Your diet is the most important part of your health journey, and exercise comes second (still very important to have both, though.)
