Health and fitness is quite an interesting space. Lately, there have been many people who have realized its importance. In some cases, individuals chase it with relentless determination, but sometimes, you need a little push before you take the first step. Such was the case with our player B. Nageswaran.
Retirement and Sedentary Lifestyle
Life after retirement is often dull. B. Nageswaran experienced this in 2016 as he began getting lethargic due to inactivity. Eating, sleeping and watching TV was his daily routine. By this time, he weighed around 89 kg. His meals were mostly home cooked but they lacked balance. He faced issues with high blood pressure as well.
He was certain by now, he had to make a change
Getting a Lifestyle Change
Nageswaran began searching for a fitness tracker. While web searching, he came across the story of our Founder and CEO Vishal Gondal. He immediately decided that GOQii was the way to go.
As soon as he joined GOQii, his lifestyle began to change. On the nutrition front, he began his day with water and soaked methi. After this, he consumes a concoction made of jeera, cinnamon and ginger in warm water.
Before a workout, he eats a banana, an apple, dates or some nuts. His post workout meal consists of homemade multigrain porridge or pearl millet (bajra) with curd. He follows this up with Idli, Dosa or Muesli for breakfast.
His Lunch consists of 1 cup of rice or 2 rotis ( flatbreads) with vegetables and dal or sambhar. For his evening snack, he either eats a fruit or consumes coconut water. He keeps his dinner very light and usually eats Idli, Dosa or Pancakes. Before bedtime, he drinks a glass of milk with turmeric.
He is completely off sugar and has zero cravings for it. Coupled with his medication, this has helped him keep high blood pressure at bay.
Being The Force
Nageswaran believes that the wisest decision of his life was getting involved with GOQii! Currently, he weighs 67 kg, having lost almost 22 kg and still looking to lose 2-3 kg more. Apart from losing weight, B. Nageswaran has also successfully completed a 10k run 6 months back, and has won an award for the same. He has begun training for a marathon.
Even though he was always interested in fitness, he needed someone who would push him and his GOQii Coach did exactly that! His coach followed up with him, guided him and suggested alternatives whenever required.
Nageswaran feels that GOQii Play is a unique endeavour that covers all major aspects of lifestyle and fitness. He is a regular on Marathon Expert Parwage Alam and Fitness Expert Tufail Qureshi’s classes. He also follows Dr. Paramjeet and Dr. Ashwin. He buys a lot of products during flash sales from the GOQii Health Store.
Seeing how adopting a healthier lifestyle has benefited him, B. Nageswaran got his family members to adopt the GOQii life, making them aware of fitness and a healthy lifestyle.
