Intro - Welcome to podcast, customary introduction, how I know abhishek, some thoughts on a gap year.
"I started with fitness but now I test the limits of my own body and I help others test their own limits." - Abhishek on what his Passion is.
Interesting to note the transition from an engineer to a fitness coach and the requirement to engage with people that Abhishek initially found tough but managed to get around with time.
Abhishek has a very unique perspective around what it means to be a coach vis a vis a trainer which can be applied across domains apart from fitness. What it all gets down to is experience, expertise and open mindedness.
Being from a highly educated and forward thinking family where his father was a Degree college principal, siblings now teaching at prestigeous universities in the US and India did not make it easy for Abhishek to pursue.
While Abhishek talks about fitness, there is an undertone of curiousity. The pursuit of the "why" is something that echoes loudly throughout the conversation. He mulls on what the philosophy of our work out is, what the reason for the movements we do are. Extending this philosophy, it's to difficult to step back and question the things we do with a "why".
There is the privilage of making someone start a new endeavour, all becuase they saw someone like them doing something extra ordinary. Abhishek saw Naga and thought, if he can do it so can I. That is what the premise of this entire podcast series is about.
