Workout: If you ask Alia whether she started hitting the gym before she was into films or after, she would say she started so that she could get into films. Alia has had a great weight loss journey and is now a fitness freak. She starts her day by going to the gym, sometimes she hits the gym even twice a day. Her Instagram page is loaded with videos of her workout.

She walks on the treadmill for 5 mins and then runs for 10 mins. Her workout consists of cardio, 3 sets of pull downs, push ups, dumbbell raises, tricep push downs, crunches and reverse crunches.

Her trainer Yasmin Karachiwala has trained her on different Pilates machines such as the Reformer, Cadillac, Wunda Chair, Corealign, Motor, Step Barrel, Bodhi Suspension System and The Barre.

Her trainer says, “Understand what your fitness level is and how your body responds to it.”
