Celebrities showing off their gym looks is the most common phenomenon in Bollywood. Everyday a different star in fashionable fitness gear turns up on our news feed – either snapped by the paparazzi or on their respective social media accounts. And while we go gaga over their pictures, most of us are unaware of the trainers who supervise, motivate and push them for a better, fitter and healthier lifestyle. It’s not just about every day gym routines but these celebrity trainers also help actors to get into their roles for films, whether it’s losing weight within a specific time span or becoming bulky. Here is a lowdown of fitness gurus and their clients who would be nothing without their help and expertise.
1. Prashant Sawant
He is powerful name in Bollywood’s fitness industry. With bigwigs like Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Ajay Devgn to his credit, his work out regimes are both inspiring and motivational. Not many know that he was the force behind SRK’s lean bod in ‘Om Shanti Om’ and ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’. He goes by the name of Prashant Six Pack on Instagram! Major LOL at that!
2. Kris Gethin
If there is one thing gym fanatics remember about ‘Krrish’, it’s superstar Hrithik Roshan’s drool-worthy physique. And, credit goes to none other than Kris! He also trained bodybuilder John Abraham on several occasions. He has written several books on fitness training including ‘The Transformer’. Funny because he even calls himself iron man!
3. Samir Jaura
Farhan Akhtar is the epitome of tall, dark and handsome. But when girls really began noticing his charm was after his killer bod in ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’. Samir apparently trained the actor for 13 months straight every day, for more than six hours a day. It was him who transformed Farhan into the toned, lean athlete-like star.
4. Yasmin Karachiwala
The founder of Body Image fitness studio, Yasmin Karachiwala is arguably the most famous fitness trainer among Bollywood starlets. Having trained top celebrities like Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif, she has proved herself as the maestro of sculpted and well-framed bodies. She also provides tailored meal plans to her clients.
