Sarina Jain, America’s first cross-cultural fitness star, is the creator of the Masala Bhangra Workout®. Today, she will tell you about the workout that's been captivating people around the world. Sarina is an energetic fitness innovator, music-video choreographer and international television/radio personality. She hosts her own TV segment on Discovery Channel’s Fit TV and has a show on Exercise Her regular appearances on The Dr. Oz Show, NBC’s The Today Show and other major media have catapulted her to fame across mainstream America, and solidified her place as the “Jane Fonda of India." Although India’s glitzy Bollywood films have featured Bhangra and other folk-dances and music for awhile (think: diaphanous orange scarves; glittering bindis; and wrists swiveling towards the heavens), it took Sarina, a vivacious, young Indian-American fitness instructor, to devise the concept of choreographing Bhangra along with modern, funky dance moves to appeal to the American exercise industry. In the process, Jain has impacted the entire fitness industry, she and has been heralded in the press throughout the U.S. and the world. Sarina introduced her Bhangra/Bollywood-style fitness routine to the U.S. with her first workout tape in 1999, and since then, she has directed and produced a total of eight high-intensity workouts in her Masala Bhangra Workout® video/DVD series. Sarina proudly embraces her Indian heritage, and she is an active member of the Indian-American community. “People fall in love with the beat of Bhangra,” she says, “the music combined with its sensuous, vigorous movements recreates the excitement that an occasion is being celebrated. People have so much fun; they don't realize they are getting an awesome cardiovascular and muscle-strengthening workout. Bringing the Masala Bhangra Workout® to people all over the world is so gratifying-—I am absolutely living my dream." To learn about Masala Bangra, go to
