Workouts help me remain active through gruelling days
Sumati Sahgal, Lenovo India's general manager says working out gives her some 'me time'
In a job where numbers can weigh one down frequently, Sumati Sahgal, Lenovo India’s general manager (consumer business), has found a way to stay on top. Running used to be Sahgal’s fitness activity of choice until an injury late last year forced her to focus more on strength training. She now uses her time in the gym doing weight training, yoga and running to prep herself for the challenges she faces in the corporate world. “I have been doing some sort of workout—either yoga or weights—for the past six years. I took up running three years ago and was enjoying it a lot till I suffered a foot injury. Now, I do a mix of weight training and High-Intensity Interval Training (Hiit) like the Tabata workouts, which I enjoy the most," says the 37-year-old.
