Rajamahendravaram: Traditional Vyayama Kalasalas in city are flourishing due to increasing health consciousness and desire to have good physique among people. Intake of fast foods and oil foods and irregular in timings are the prime reasons for ill-health and people. They identify the ill health in 30 days and rush to the Vyayama Kalasalas.
Training will be imparted to candidates both in morning and evening hours. More than 300 Vyayama Kalasalas are functioning in the state, it is said and the organisers impart training to candidates in traditional exercises.
Speaking to The Hans India, Andhra Pradesh Body Builders Association secretary AV Ramana Murthy said that Vvayama Kalasals have been helping persons who are doing physical exercises regularly. ``Vyayama Kalasalas can produce candidates for national level body building competitions because of rigorous training by 45 days. The candidate should spend an amount of Rs 30,000 per month for nutritious food,’’ he said.
In Vyayama Kalasalas the weight lifting sets ranges from 15 kgs to 50 kgs. But the women are not coming to Vyayama Kalasalas as they have to change their dress for doing exercises.
Women and men are going to gyms to do exercises with air-condition facility, which cannot serve the purpose, he said. The association asked Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh (SAAP) to provide German-based weight lifting sets costing Rs 4.50 lakh.
