Akshay Kumar has got to be one of Bollywood’s most renowned fitness freaks.

Unlike some stars that exercise with the assistance of a personal trainer, Akshay has always endorsed fitness as a lifestyle which should be incorporated through sports and everyday manageable exercises.

Instead of visiting the gym regularly, he maintains his great physique with outdoor exercises and martial arts.

Though he works out every day, he does not have a personal trainer nor does he have a particular workout routine.

Akshay opts for freestyle workouts, which include running, functional training and rock climbing.

He also likes to maintain his strong core with special beads which he swings around his neck. This helps to burn fat and tone his abs at the same time.
