    Pooja Gor is a fitness freak. Her tryst with fitness started in 2013. "Wanting to be healthy and fit was my goal. And for that, I experimented with a lot of activities. But joining an activity or going to the gym and being consistent was a challenge because of my working hours," she said.

    In picture: Pooja Gor posted this picture, post-workout and wrote alongside - Challenging myself to do something new which re-energises my body, mind and soul. A key theme and focus for me this year is going to be redefining what sport means to me, and how I am going to reward my body for keeping me up and about every day! With a promise to keep the movement going every day, be it 10 mins or 30. Excited to elevate me with this new chapter in my life!

    Perceived by many as a shy person, thanks to her roles in Kitani Mohabbat Hai and Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya, Pooja Gor displayed her daring side when she participated in Khatron Ke Khiladi 5. She had a very small stint in the show, as she got eliminated too soon. However, the show helped Pooja overcome her fears to some extent.
