“Being fit is the best fashion statement one can have,” says Abhishek Kher, a finance sector professional residing in Mumbai. At the age of 40, Abhishek has literally made the impossible, possible.
Abhishek has always been fond of running but was forced to lead a lifestyle with moderate physical activity due to his busy work schedule. Weighing about 83kg prior to his introduction to GOQii, he had diseases like hypertension and diabetes running in the family. Abhishek had no intentions of being a victim, with unbreakable determination and hardwork, he is 64kg today and the proud owner of a fit and sexy physique. Let’s take a look at Abhishek’s journey to understand his transformation.
Prior to being introduced to GOQii, Abhishek was dwelling on the heavier side of the weighing scale. Although he had downloaded a few running apps on his phone, and used to go for runs, it wasn’t enough for him to reap the kind of results he was looking for. When we asked him about the inspiration behind his determination, this is what he had to say:
“I come from a family which has a history of lifestyle diseases like hypertension and diabetes. I give the credit to my fear of being slowed down by these diseases, and also my children who are 12 and 2 years old respectively. I wanted to spend more quality time with them, playing with them and giving them the kind of attention they seek from me. I understood that with my current lifestyle and erratic work hours, I would be drained by the time I reach home. I decided to allocate more time to improve my lifestyle, so I can dedicate more time to my kids and family.”
Being an employee of Bajaj Allianz, Abhishek was introduced to GOQii through their corporate tier program. Since then, there was nothing to stop this man on his road to glory. In a time period of 1 year, Abhishek reduced 19kg, coming down from 83kg to 64kg.
Abhishek’s diet mainly consisted of fats, proteins and complex carbs. He tries to avoid simple carbs and limits his sugar intake to once a day, with his tea in the evening. Abhishek also consumes around 4-5 eggs in a day to get his daily dose of protein.
“Being a vegetarian, getting my daily dose of protein has always been a challenge. My coach has proved to be very helpful in tackling this problem, because she helped me find veg sources of protein to fill my daily dose. She has also taught me how to exercise properly to reap the best of my hard work.”
He eats three meals a day, breakfast, lunch and an evening tea with some dry fruits. Abhishek avoids eating after 4pm and only exercises once a day. He divides his fitness regime into 3 days of running (10km a day) and 3 days in the gym, mostly focusing on strengthening his core muscles.
His transformation is an inspiration to people of all ages because if he can do it, so can you! Abhishek rose above his excuses and has torn through every barrier put in his way with immense style.
