Grow­ing up, I was a skinny kid. I was not a weak kid but some­how kids my age looked a lot big­ger than me or I looked a lot smaller com­pared to them. Through­out my school, col­lege, post-grad­u­a­tion and work life, I was a thin guy. So be­ing big and strong was a dream, till that day when I lifted my first dumb­bell! And I got HOOKED! Slowly, I started learn­ing about weight train­ing tech­niques, car­dio, proper diet and wit­nessed awe­some changes in my body. Carbs, pro­teins and fats be­came my ammo, gym be­came my fir­ing range and my body be­came MY WEAPON! I started to feel stronger, more en­er­getic and pos­i­tive. My clothes fit­ted bet­ter but most im­por­tantly, I felt hap­pier. Tech­ni­cally, when we end a work­out, our body re­leases a hor­mone called ‘dopamine’ which in lay­man’s term is the ‘happy hor­mone’. I work out in the morn­ing so my day starts off on a pos­i­tive note and hence I carry that to my work, to my fam­ily and friends, ba­si­cally every­where. (Not that I had a sad life ear­lier; I was happy, but fit­ness made me a bet­ter ver­sion of my­self. The best part about my fit­ness jour­ney is it is com­pletely NAT­U­RAL. It’s a bit tough to achieve fit­ness goals nat­u­rally, with­out un­healthy drugs or ex­pen­sive sup­ple­ments. But all it takes is dis­ci­pline in terms of hit­ting the work­outs, healthy food habits, proper rest and per­sis­tence. I have a reg­u­lar life, work­ing in the cor­po­rate world, get­ting stuck in traf­fic jams rou­tinely, deal­ing with re­la­tion­ships, but fit­ness has helped me deal with ev­ery­thing in a very calm and ef­fec­tive man­ner. I can say with ut­most con­fi­dence that one of the best things to hap­pen to me in all of my 30 odd years is ‘FIT­NESS’. Stay fit, stay happy!
