We’ve often seen Bollywood actors flaunting their six packs and posting pictures of their gym workouts online. But guess what, even they get bored to go to gym every day like us. To escape the monotonous exercise routine, some celebs use other alternative exercises such as Pilates and Yoga that almost give the same results.
Here are a few celebs who substituted their mundane gym sessions with alternate methods.

Akshay loves practicing parkour (a workout that involves jumping, leaping and other free body movements) than hitting the gym.
