With lockdowns and travel restrictions in place and gyms closed, many of us miss out on valuable exercise. Luckily, there are some exercises we can do while stuck indoors.
MSM values the health and fitness of all its workers, so we stepped up our Tea Time Connect to deliver fun physical activity to our staff’s homes. With our own Senior Manager Dakshita Bhatla taking the lead, over 40 MSM employees take part in our virtual Zumba classes.
Dakshita has been doing Zumba for two years now. She learned it by watching videos on YouTube. “I like dancing a lot. To manage my time doing what I love – both dancing and fitness – I combined them and learned Zumba” she said.
“A 30-minute of dance session converted to fitness is what I require after or in between long long working hours,” she shared.
For some people, exercise can be a daunting task, but Zumba is one way to make your workout fun. It is a great full-body aerobic workout that boosts heart health, improves strength, and reduces blood pressure.
This unique team activity over an online platform also gives MSM’s employees a chance to have fun and unwind after a long day of work.
“It was really amazing. To get a push from MSM to do extracurricular activities that keeps me fit is really great. I get the feeling of being part of a committed and caring culture,” said Jim George, Global Marketing Manager and one of the attendees. “Also from a personal perspective, being under lockdown for 21 days, it was a huge relief for my body to get its required exercise.”
“The experience was awesome! Right now as people can’t meet anyone or go out, it’s a great way to engage in social activities. It really helps everyone let out some steam after days of work,” said Vineet Sharma, MSM Manager for Sales and Services. “I give this event a big thumbs up.”
MSM continues to find new and fun ways to bring together its team of 250 employees worldwide and add a dash of excitement to their day-to-day lives.
