New Delhi, Dec. 15 (ANI): International Bodybuilder Kris Gethin is the reason why Bollywood actors
Hrithik Roshan and John Abraham appear so fit.
Gethin has his own fitness website to train people in the right way.
“I didn’t choose body-building. It chose me. I used to go to the rehab for a back injury. But when I started weight-training, the pain was alleviated. I started feeling better,” Gethin said.
He has also written various books on his fitness journey. His latest book, ‘The Transformer’, published by Om Books International, sums up his journey from being a nobody to a sort-after name in the fitness domain.
The fitness-expert said that Hrithik Roshan has been his favourite actor to work with due to his intuitive nature and smart body. “It’s very easy for me to get results from him,” said Gethin.
He also clarified that none of the Bollywood actors have been a pain for him to work with.
“I probably won’t choose to work with them if I felt that way,” Gethin said.
To know the temperament and work-out preferences of each actor, Gethin and his team spends a lot of time interacting with them.
“After getting to know their characters, I know who will be best trainer for each of them,” he said.
For all the fellow-fitness enthusiasts, he advises that there’s no secret to fitness.
“People have the motivation. They just need to tap into it,” he said.
“Be in the state of allowing and not resistance. When you are in the state of resistance, everything becomes an excuse. Rather than resistance, allow yourself – ‘Yes I can’, then you can achieve whatever you set you for yourself in life,” Gethin added.
Other than fitness, Gethin is also passionate about biking. Kris said that he loves the sound of his Royal Enfields.
“It just feels so good. On road, I just prefer to go for a cruise and enjoy the ride. Going on my Royal Enfield, is a form of meditation for me,” he said.
The book launch was organised by Om Books International and BollyGoods in association with Hyatt Regency. Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor was also present in attendance and inspired the audience with his fitness anecdotes. (ANI)
