Sardara Singh, the former Indian Hockey team captain, has defined fitness like none other. He is one of the fittest sports players around. He follows a healthy routine consisting of gruelling exercises, a well-balanced diet with lots of protein, as well as core-strengthening exercises. This 31-year-old athlete also does a lot of Yoga and meditation. These help him cater to his mental fitness needs too.
Virat has had weight issues since his childhood. He had never been on the lighter side of the weighing scale until 2012, when self-realization hit him hard. It was then that he set on his mission to shake away his lethargy and become fit. Initially, he fell sick due to the rigorous exercise routines, and more often than not, he couldn’t keep up with his diet. Today, five years down the line, the skipper of the Indian Cricket team has become an inspiration for every fitness enthusiast there is. He works out for five days a week, and his routines include a lot of weight training, squats, reps and the likes of them. He prefers home cooked food and protein shakes to meet his dietary requirements.
Vijender Singh needs no introduction. The boxer’s training regime is exceptionally hectic and includes a lot of cardio, weight-training and boxing (of course!). To keep up with his physical training, he eats a lot of organic, high-protein and low-fat food. Junk food is a strict no-no for him. Way to go Vijender!
Physique Elite’s first master trainer from India, Kumar Mannava has a massive Instagram following. Thanks to the fitness regimes and diet plans that he shares with his followers. Though his origins were very humble, Kumar carved his way forward in life just by his sheer determination. He went on to train with Stan McQuay in LA and currently represents India on various fitness platforms globally.
An Arjuna Awardee and National Swimming Champion, Sandeep Sejwal is a no stranger to us. His popularity and success largely stem from his dedication to being physically and mentally fit. Sandeep had an irresistible sweet tooth, and paid its price in 2012 when he gained a whopping 12 kgs. As a result of the beating his fitness levels took, his game eventually got affected. Several high protein diets and regular gym sessions later, he was back in shape to become the first ever swimmer to win a Bronze at Asian Games in 2014.
Aren’t you inspired, already? Come on, shake away the lethargy and break into a run. Sweat like never before and let your muscles ache with joy. Because when it comes to fitness, there is no looking back.
