“India is by far the most motivated country”
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.
