Ralph Waldo Emerson once rightly said-¨The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.¨ We have seen many personalities who have transformed themselves into what they once dreamt of. Fitness is always a hot topic for the millennials, many join gyms and fitness studios and spend lakhs of money on maintaining fitness, but yet they fail to attain what they aspire for. So, where do they go wrong? What is the ultimate secret of attaining one’s desired physique?
Well to answer these questions, Today, we have Harminder Dulowal, a renowned Bodybuilder and the president of Fitness International Federation (FIF). Harminder says that for bodybuilding and maintaining fitness you don’t need costly gyms, equipment, or supplements. For maintaining fitness one needs strong willpower, dedication, and lots of hard work.
Harminder who himself weighed around 38 kgs at a time, was always bullied for having a lean figure but this didn’t stop him from achieving what he wanted to become. His journey has been nothing less than a roller coaster ride. On being asked about the secret to his impeccable physique, he replied that he credits his fitness a lot to his Vegetarian Diet, he says- “I am a vegetarian bodybuilder and I believe in promoting a vegetarian diet to the members of my gym. An ideal diet would include dry fruits, broccoli, green leafy vegetables, milk products, cereals, pulses, sprouts, and fruits that are rich in vitamin C and fiber. Speaking about the important exercises that one must do he said-“Basic exercises such as skipping, running or walking, squats, crunches, push-ups, leg raises, planks, lunges, kettlebell deadlift, Single-leg Glute Bridge, split squats, Russian twist, bicycle crunches, side lunges, and bodyweight step up can be done by individuals at their homes to keep themselves fit.
Harminder is the owner of Red Gym and also a fitness nutrition brand, through which he trains and motivates many upcoming bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts to achieve their goals and start working on their dreams. Commenting about his Journey he says- “It has been incredible, but at the same time I know it hasn’t been a cakewalk for me, what I have earned, I have earned it after years of hard work, dedication, and sacrifice, participating in competitions around the globe, I have spent years to reach and now I want that more and more people from our country should make our country proud in this field.”
