So let’s go back to the past where my journey began in 2014. I always studied in a boarding school where I was exposed to a disciplined environment. I was extremely interested in activities such as football, basketball, horse-riding, etc. I was also a district level lawn tennis player and a national level football player. So I was always active and naturally evolved as a fit individual because of my constant association with sports.
I was always fit, but looking at myself bare-bodied, I realized I needed to work on myself much more. I was sure I am meant to be much better than who I was.
While pursuing my hotel management degree, I joined the gym and was exposed to obvious ideas like eating eggs and chicken and everything that would give me the body I desired to have. I was also influenced by broscience and followed my gym trainers and peers without a question for almost a year.
Gradually, in 2015, I came under the influence of steroids and was only working towards gaining the body I desired. My greatest wish was to compete in the field of bodybuilding and I thought I would achieve the same through steroids.
However, the most depressing moment for me was when I began to lose out on my gains and was not able to find any correct form of guidance. A huge transformation took place when I realized the importance of naturally evolving and being fit without the influence of steroids. I began training naturally and designed my own workouts with the help of scientific knowledge. Gradually, fitness became my passion and I decided to gain more knowledge about this field and give my best to it. I managed to work along with my training and never missed a meal even when there was a hectic work schedule.
I got certified in exercise science and nutrition science and decided to leave my job to be able to give my best to my passion. I joined GetSetGo in 2017 and since then have been unstoppable. I also competed in a bodybuilding show for more experience and exposure to ground realities.
Academics was never my cup of tea but when it comes to fitness, I am only into reading and upgrading my knowledge every day. I read scientific research papers and write articles about correct nutrition and fitness and focus on educating people about the same. I believe in evidence-based practice and my entire day is spent on reading, writing, training and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. My mindset now is to enjoy the process and be consistent.
Consistency and Knowledge are extremely essential, and living in the present gives me peace. So guys, focus on growing yourself as a person and as an athlete too.
