The world is completely online now. Based on today’s uncertainty, working out from the internet or some app is the easiest thing to do currently. But why are so many people falling off the fitness trend when the accessibility to above-average fitness is so easy? The obvious answer is that being consistent with a fitness and nutrition journey is really tough. Plus, it takes a lot of time and patience to see any type of results/progress. There’s also a major reason why you can’t see changes in your fitness levels or body composition/physique and that is : ‘Structure’ It’s relatively easy to figure out random movement patterns/exercises and just blindly follow some routine you see online uploaded by coaches like myself or some fitness influencer. It can seem like an interesting change in your fitness programming and that could be beneficial for having more options. But is this new routine…

Before you start the journey in building a better you, make sure you start for the right reasons. For setting goals is very easy. It’s being consistent enough to achieve them is where the true gold lies. Here are my two cents to help you not only define your fitness goals, but also build consistency to make them a part of your lifestyle than see them another task or deadline: 1.

Fitness is more than just looks and body image When you set goals also keeping in mind your health, getting fit and lean is a by product. For when you are truly healthy, you are at your best, mentally & physically. That’s when age jus becomes a number. 2. DON’T SET SUPERFICIAL GOALS THAT ARE TOO OVERWHELMING TO BEGIN WITH. Depending on where…

And that’s: SLEEP Without an adequate Quality Sleep (not disturbed), you can forget about your fat loss goals (Not to mention general well-being & performance, which is another topic of discussion on its own). So here’s why you should focus on getting at least 7-8 hours of quality sleep: 1. YOUR BODY REPAIRS & RECOVERS The act of exercising and going about our routine activities of the day, involve a lot of wear and tear in our cells. Apart from feeding our body with good nutrition, it needs a good period of rest to make…

Ever seen the body of your favourite celebrity showing off their toned flawless body, selling a product to look thin, fit, good or even look fair. Ever seen those gym ads, showing people with six pack abs & sharing stories of people who have lost 5kgs in one week, from super fat to super thin? I’m sure you have, unless you live in a cave. And so you get super motivated to change the way you look & start exercising. Some achieve their goals of losing weight by going on extreme diet plans, while some just give up halfway as they expected better results in the time they could manage. In both cases, the consequences of trying to look good, usually leads to a bad experience & perception about getting fit 1. BREAK THE CHAIN So how does one break free from this toxic chain?? The problem lies in our…

There is no ideal weight loss target per week. Everyone is different and we all lose weight or gain strength at our own pace. There’s no right or wrong way if you end up losing a kg a week that really won’t mean that you lose 52 kgs in the whole year, right?

Your lifts won’t go up in a linear manner every week so if you fuss over it too much then you want to get frustrated with the slow rate of progress and in some ways it spikes in the opposite direction as well you may gain weight one week in a fat loss program or perhaps be a massive spend decline. It’s still nothing to worry about trust me, it’s normal so just keep…
