Deanne Panday says that the biggest mistake people make while trying to lose weight is to concentrate on cardio workouts. While this may show some results, weight training is a better option as it hastens the process since the muscles burn calories throughout the day as opposed to a cardio workout that burns calories only at the time that you are actually working out.
Deanne Panday believes that one workout does not fit all and that a fitness regimen has to be tailored to a person's goals. For instance, when a Bollywood celeb wants to achieve a certain body type, she tailors their workouts as per their goal and does not use the 'one size fits all' approach.
