Indian fitness industry is undergoing a revolution of sorts spiked by the increasing incidences of obesity and diabetes. If we look around, we will find that weight loss advertisements are rampant everywhere. This is one of the key reasons as to why health clubs and gym memberships are growing. Spending on fitness was earlier seen as a luxury, but now it is a way of life.
While everyone is busy discussing the weight loss of Anant Ambani, one crucial factor behind this is, exercise-fitness trainer and body builder Vinod Channa. From a modest, Mumbai family, Vinod’s growing up years were rather testing. There were days when even one meal was difficult to come by. Vinod recalls the days when the entire family would survive on just one meal a day.
It was a blessing that he could go to a college. Vinod worked odd jobs to earn money. Since body building was his passion, he enrolled in a gym that charged him Rs 50 a month. While training he also took up a course for becoming a professional trainer. Vinod now has a fitness training centre by the name of VC Fitness in Khar, Mumbai.
Vinod has trained John Abraham and Shilpa Shetty and many more. His latest success story is none other than Anant Ambani. Under Vinod’s guidance and watchful eye, Anant lost 108 kilos in less than 18 months. Vinod made sure Anant stuck to a zero-sugar, low-carb diet along with adequate fats and proteins.
“For personal training at home, he charges anywhere between Rs 3.5 – 5 lakh.”
says John Abraham.
Being in the fitness industry is no doubt rewarding, as well as it gives you the satisfaction of being healthy, physically and mentally.As the saying goes, a strong mind resides in a healthy body.
