Women in India and even in South Africa are the same where they involved in their daily chores as head of the family. They have to make food, raising kids and managing all the house which makes them so exhaust to turn up for fitness. It’s time now for the men to take initiative and help the women to understand the meaning of fitness which leads to a healthy life and family,” said Loggenberg.
