Q: What are your struggle journey and the challenges you faced in the fitness industry?
I remember I used to be rangy and dark from starting, gaining for me was one hell of a task due to my body type, which tends to be ectomorph. I was a swimmer and a badminton player in my school life which helped me keep my body flexible and sporty. This passion for sports took me over, made me win some medals and trophies and as well. But my main goal was to get to the fittest physique as fit as I can get. After My 10th grade, I was sure that I wouldn’t be able to cope up with sports due to the increasing responsibilities on my head, and of course, it was high time to get serious about the future. I was feeling depressed for weeks that I am not able to tender out my energy which flows like lava in me, I wanted that my energy should pursue my aura too because sports I used to play never gave me a physical built, but of course the endurance and flexibility so I made my mind to start working out a bit starting from equalizing the body energy by pushups, squats and running, it gave me a fair and energetic start to something new, I had an extraordinarily positive vibe about this so I decided to take it to the next level by starting by training with weights. I tried exercising with some trainers at the gym, but I always felt like my energy had been bounded, so I began to watch some famous gym fellow’s workout videos, I use to imitate them in the gym, learning about the correct position for workout and that extensive hunger to learn something made me do it for eight years now, I have been training consecutively on my strength and my endurance. It was tough to get on track in the gym line because many people tend to leave the gym due to cramps, pain, etc. But I never gave up on learning which was my key that made a so much into bodybuilding and a successful entrepreneur as well. I remember being called black in my childhood, people running away from me, have never been called on birthday parties or never had friends, but I never use to sad down myself but used to think how am I going to turn the tables which gave me the boost to be something and that hunger to achieve something likewise. Today I can proudly say that I did it, and I’ll keep doing it keeping my grind high.
