Most of the people I meet in my profession believe that I was born with the body I live in today. Unfortunately, I was not like what I am today. Born on 21st march 1979, I was brought up by my grandfather, a retired colonel and pampered by my loving grandmother.
I suffered from typhoid when I was in 7th grade. The ailment got detected late and doctors had to give steroids to revive me. As a side effect, I lost most of my hair, got severe acne and started to put on weight. Mine was a joint family. My cousin sisters were thin and pretty. Social life became hell for me. At school or at home, everybody used to tease me for being fat and having a face full of acne. Well, I thought my face and the acne is something I cannot do much about, but my body is up to me how I want to shape it. While in school it was impossible for me to be consistent with my exercise. During that time there were hardly any gyms. Still I used to try to do something or the other by reading or watching here and there but with no results. I made the same mistakes which most of the people make even today like skipping breakfast, eating only two meals, etc. There was nobody to guide me right.
Once I was out of school, I joined a local gym, worked out hard like crazy, felt better but did not lose much. The reason was no proper guidance. In my quest of obtaining knowledge, I enrolled myself for a basic Aerobics course with Reebok. I received my certification for an Aerobics trainer but I did not restrict myself. I kept on reading, studying, enrolled myself with advanced courses on exercise prescription, nutrition, various exercise methods, kept on attending national and international seminars and workshops, experimented with my knowledge first on myself and then on my deserving clients and here I am today. I have struggled to achieve a fit body. It's not a gift to me. I have earned it !!
