V. T. Mahadevan has been running Fitness Paradise at R. K. Mutt Road, Mylapore for 22 years now. He says more than 1000 members use the services provided by his gym.
He says, “Even before the lockdown we have been using Whatsapp to send motivational videos to our members every weekend. And we continue to do that now too. In addition to that, we have been conducting online classes for all our members twice a week through Zoom. They have also been asked to do body weight exercises and boot camp workouts at home. These exercises can be done at home without any equipment”.
When asked about new memberships, he says, “New members who come to the gym have to be seen and assessed. Exercises and equipment have to be explained to them. So we have currently put new memberships on hold. But those interested can send me a message or call me and I will definitely get back to them after the lockdown”. His gym is located at 52, R. K. Mutt Road, Mylapore. Contact Mahadevan at 9152187947.
