From Hanuman Vyayamsala, to my own gyms...

When I was a kid, my father used to take me to Hanuman Vyaymasala. He was very insistent about fitness and sports, and I tagged along. As the years went by, my interest in fitness grew manifold and I became a serious fitness enthusiast, without realising it. My friends always used to wonder about my knowledge and often took tips from me. Many would say that I am well equipped to run a fitness business. But I was non-committal, and took the usual route of education abroad, career etc. and was happily settled in London. So, how did I end up being a successful fitness trainer for the likes of Superstar #MaheshBabu, Tennis Star #SaniaMirza...and a co-owner of 3 gyms? Hmm...My London stint came to end, when my father expired. He was the inspiration and guiding force for me and I simply had to rush to India. Soon after, I found myself struggling to make a living, leave alone the comfortable life I had in London. Days were sucked up in insignificant jobs but I somehow found the will and vigour to hit gym in the evenings. People started noticing my technique and knowledge...and my definite views on training. Got a few leads as a part-time fitness trainer and there was no looking back. From part-time to full time fitness trainer...and teaming up with the right partners to set up fitness gyms...It all happened in quick succession. From Hanuman Vyayamsala, to my own gyms...it's been a great journey, and I am just warming up."
