Ever since I was a kid, I remember wanting to look normal. The desire to be accepted and not stand out from the crowd was all I wanted. I was young, skinny and because of that I have always realized how your physical appearance affected you and your actions. It highly affects how you think of your own abilities. Your CONFIDENCE!!
Needless to say, I always tried to hide myself among the crowd, the one to stay quiet in efforts to be unnoticed. The severe lack of confidence crippled any chances I had to leave a mark of my own.
Highschool changed everything. People started noticing and making comments about how ‘not normal’ I was. At 5’10” and merely 47 kgs, I turned heads everywhere I went, not in any good way though.
After highschool, I’ve had enough and started my fitness journey.
1 month, 2 months, 3 months, 6 months… needless to say, I was hooked. I felt like a different person. I had never felt so liberated. For the first time in my life, I didn’t feel like hiding. I felt like I could do more and be more. I knew something had changed, not just on my physical self but the mental shift was something I had never experienced.
I stood out in the crowds, only this time, the feeling was better.
I was CONFIDENT.
Fitness taught me discipline and value of hard work… Lessons that would later help me become a young entrepreneur at the age of 23.
Fast forward to 2019, I was leading few businesses, The Physique Workshop being one of the most noticeable and proud creations of mine. With over 5 branches, it is the first ever Fitness chain of the country with over tens and thousands of satisfied clients served.
Things have changed, I evolved a lot, however one thing remains the same; the desire to have people experience the greatness that comes with a simple decision to try, to be more.
A man can move mountains if given the right tools and this is one of the few tools I offer in my pursuit to leave a mark.
