India Today - - SIMPLY DELHI - By Karuna John

Kris Gethin is a sports ther­a­pist, pro­fes­sional nat­u­ral body­builder, author of the Body by De­sign, deputy edi­tor of Body­build­ing. com and trainer to Bol­ly­wood stars in­clud­ing Hrithik Roshan. He tells SIM­PLY DELHI that celeb or no celeb, the top­most ex­cuse for skip­ping a work­out re­mains the same. Q. Who is the fittest celebrity? A. Ac­tor Hrithik Roshan and MTV VJ Bani J.

Q. Are film stars dif­fi­cult to train than reg­u­lar clients?

A. Yes and no. Their long work­ing hours and chang­ing sched­ule makes it dif­fi­cult for me to plan eat­ing times, sleep­ing pat­terns and re­cov­ery pe­ri­ods. But their com­mit­ment, ded­i­ca­tion and pro­fes­sion­al­ism as a well- known celebrity makes it eas­ier be­cause they are more ac­count­able to pres­sure for suc­cess. Q. What about star tantrums? A. I have never come across any tantrums thrown my way but if I did, I wouldn’t make it easy on them. So, it’s oc­ca­sion­ally me throw­ing the tantrums. I usu­ally have to be the bad guy in or­der for them to stick with the pro­gramme. Q. So is there hope for the un­fit? A. Of course there is, es­pe­cially in In­dia. I have lived in sev­eral coun­tries and travel ex­ten­sively world­wide for ap­pear­ances, lec­tures and for clients and ex­pe­ri­ence many cul­tures. In­dia is by far the most mo- ti­vated coun­try of them all and that’s why I have lived here now for nearly two years. We at Physique Elite, train celebs such as Hrithik Roshan, Ma­hesh Babu, Karan Jo­har, Ran­veer Singh, Jackky Bhag­nani and Ar­jun Kapoor and also ed­u­cate per­sonal train­ers.
