How did you get started?
Fitness has always been a part of my life. I remember visiting public parks during weekends to practice running and sprinting with my father. Be it swimming, cycling, running, I have done all of them all my life. That was followed by my training in Bharatnatyam for 10 years. It was only in first year of college that I took up yoga and it’s been a wonderful journey since then.
Where does your motivation come from?
My motivation is all about that adrenaline kick I get while doing any form of exercise. I like that feeling of achieving a goal or conquering an obstacle. That’s what motivates me everyday.
How do you feel your flexibility helps you both in and out of the gym?
It makes me more agile. Earlier I would get spasms of pain in my neck and back which doesn’t happen any more.
What workout routine has worked best for you?
I practice yoga everyday for 1 hour, though I have tried other forms of workouts, I always stick to yoga and occasionally running.
If you had to pick only 3 exercises what would they be and why?
The Chakrasan, the Eagle Pose and the camel pose
What is your diet like?
I usually do a no carb, high protein diet. But sometimes I let go and eat everything.
