Amid this lockdown wellness and fitness is taking a whole new meaning while we all are forced to stay back our home and still remain fit. The pandemic that has led to a lockdown in many parts of the country has hit the fitness centers both big or small and it’s quite evident that gyms are not going to open soon. What does that mean? Yes, we all need to learn and understand different ways to stay in shape while being at home. All those people who were quite regular at the gym are facing the biggest concern of finding the equipment at home leading them frustrated for not being able to meet their fitness goals. Amid all this we had a word with ‘India’s top male model’; Karan Oberoi ‘KO’ on how to keep ourselves fit and achieve our fitness goals. Karan Oberoi ‘KO’ is both a fashion and a fitness model has also graced the cover of leading fitness magazines in India such as Men’s Health.

Michelle Langton – What fitness regime do you follow?

Karan Oberoi ‘KO’ – I keep changing my fitness routine be that diet or workout so that my body doesn’t get used to it and also so that the routine does not become monotonous.

Before the lockdown happened, this is what I followed: For three days in a week, I would go to the gym and do weight training, cardio and stretching. For the other three days, I would go for a run in the morning along with some body weight training and abs workout. I keep one day for rest.

Michelle – What’s the longest duration you have remained without exercising? Has this lockdown affected the routine?

KO – I can’t cut off myself from exercising or running. In last one decade I have never missed my work out for even a single day because I believe, even if you are super busy it’s all about keeping the workout short yet intense therefore taking out time every day. Because working out is a priority as other things in life are like sleeping and eating food. I was in Delhi when this lockdown occurred. I didn’t have single dumbbell back at my place to help me with workout. Every day since the lockdown I work out for 45 mins doing intense training that includes push ups for different muscle groups, stand ups, on spot jumps and short sprints at my home terrace.

Michelle – Do you believe in following diets?

KO – Yes, in fact it’s all in your diet. 70 percent depends what you eat that contributes in how you look. Looking fit doesn’t restrict to having muscles. When we talk about diet, it’s about eating food that are high in nutrition value. Discarding junk, eating wholesome food, green vegetables and citrus fruits in your diet. I think during this lockdown eating vegetables and avoiding junk has been easy for everyone as junk isn’t easily available.

Michelle – What is Model Karan Oberoi’s fitness mantra?

KO – Fitness is a lifestyle for me that revolves around eating right and being consistent with my workout routine. Eat right! Workout Right! And sleep right!!!

Michelle – Any fitness advice you have for aspiring fitness models or anyone who wants to have body like a male model?

KO – To have a body like a male model, it requires patience. Don’t go for short cuts. Slowly and gradually you will see the changes in your body and enjoy the journey. Keep a track of your workout, analyse what is working for your body and what is not. The trick lies in keep changing the workout routine as well as your diet. Eating right, working out everyday and sleeping for at least 8 hours can help you fetch best results. It is also imperative to stay away from all sort of addictions as they not only hamper the stamina but also takes away the charm.

Michelle – What is your daily diet routine?

KO – My daily diet includes high nutrition value foods, green leafy veggies and citrus fruits. But yes, while I am shooting this is following diet routine that helps me to look lean and muscular

Breakfast: His breakfast includes 6-7 white eggs, 4 slices of brown bread toast or porridge, some fruits such as apple and banana and one scoop of protein shake.

Lunch: spinach or boiled vegetables and one cup brown rice or quinoa and one piece of chicken breast.

Evening: Glass of orange juice with 6 eggs white or Protein Bar (when egg whites not available)

Dinner: Two slices of steamed fish and green raw salad. His dinner includes soup, salads, and veggies quite often.

Takes one scoop protein shake before sleeping.

Michelle – How do you stay motivated?

KO – The current times have been depressing for everyone, but being focussed is the key. I take it as a challenge and give myself daily/weekly goals, achieving these on regular basis feels like an achievement and hence motivates me to keep working out and eating right. Since I am at home, my mom keeps luring me with her new recipes, she tries to keep it healthy for me to stay fit but sometimes she goes overboard with her love resulting, me giving extra workout goals to self the next day.

Michelle – How are you spending your days during this lockdown period?

KO – I usually spend my day sleeping and working out. First half usually passes by helping the family do the chores, sanitising the house, groceries. In the free time, I listen to motivation videos on YouTube, listen to music, binge watch on Netflix. Some days the time flies and some days it stands still.

Michelle has been a part of the journey ever since Bigtime Daily started. As a strong learner and passionate writer, she contributes her editing skills for the news agency. She also jots down intellectual pieces from categories such as science and health.

SPOTLIGHT: Sweet vinyl by DREAMOUR

Published

on

What happens when two immensely talented visionaries come together to create elegance and ingenuity in a sculptural glass fragranced candle? Dreamour. That is the long and short version of how Dreamour was created. Founded by Karissa Rowe and Neal Klotsman in late September 2022, Dreamour was founded with the goal of creating a luxury fragrance brand that operates at the intersection of functional art in the candle market space.

Rowe, a Parsons School of Design graduate, set out to fill the niche of integrating design in the candle marketplace. Unlike most candle vessels that are mass-produced, Dreamour’s founders desired to prioritize the artisanal craftsmanship of glass in their production processes of the sculptural glass designs. This resulted in a long timeline of sourcing the globe for talented glass artisans who could transform a sketch into a functional and sophisticated candle vessel. Each and every candle vessel is hand-blown, inherently resulting in a one-of-a-kind product and unique experience for the consumer. These functional fragrant candles also act as a piece of décor due to its sculptural and alluring appearance.

Sweet Vinyl, Dreamour’s first candle scent, fills the room with musky & leathery notes combined with earthy notes of vetiver and cypriol, topped with a citrus touch of bergamot and mandarin. The founders worked with master perfumers in Grasse, France, to create a scent that invoked notes of memorable moments, emphasizing high quality ingredients in the fragrances in a soy wax blend. This resulted in candles that consist of clean ingredients, a vegan formula, and is entirely cruelty-free.

It is the personification of the glass blowers’ spirit, the heart of Grasse imprisoned in a bottle, and the narrative of two visionaries that sets Dreamour at the top of the candle market pedestal. Dreamour embodies the sophistication and savior-faire French perfumery as a luxury brand, while being a NYC based brand. Dreamour is currently stocked at Patron of the New in New York, along with other major designer luxury known brands. Rowe and Klotsman are currently expanding their production lines and will drop new fragrances and designs in early 2023. Don’t expect anything ordinary with Dreamour, as they will continue to bring a unique perspective to the marketplace of home fragrances.
