In times of COVID-19, fitness has become an even more important aspect of life. This dialogue will see a timely and fruitful conversation on nutrition, wellness and various other aspects of fitness.

Envisioned by the Prime Minister as a People's Movement, the Fit India Dialogue is yet another endeavour to involve citizens of the country to draw out a plan to make India a Fit Nation. The basic tenet on which the Fit India Movement was envisaged, that of involving citizens to imbibe fun, easy and inexpensive ways in which to remain fit and therefore bring about a behavioural  change which makes fitness an imperative part of every Indian's life, is being strengthened by this dialogue.
