My name is Nikhil and I’m a fitness-minded, fun-loving person living in Delhi, India. The main reason to start livefitnow is to educate people about fitness & health.
Apart from this, I am a digital marketer and fitness instructor helping people achieve their goals. Whether it’s business goals or body goals.
How I got started
Before I start with my fitness journey, I want to share my story with you. Many people who know my story told me that my story inspires them to be a better version of themselves and helps them to overcome their addictions and difficulties in life.
My Drug Addiction Story…
So, I was born and brought up in Amritsar ( Punjab ), where every 1 out of 3 youngsters is either addicted to drugs or crime. Unfortunately, I was into drugs. I was quite intelligent in studies and had big dreams like every other person, but I made some bad choices that drive me into the dark world of drugs, where imagination appears like reality and staying high all day is the only goal.
I knew in my head that this addiction is gonna kill me someday, So I tried quitting but, I failed miserably. For someone doing drugs for a straight year, quitting is the most difficult thing, because when you try you get panic attacks, anxiety, depression, anger, loneliness, and the fear of getting die due to constant loose motions, trembling & cold sweats.
After almost two years of being on drugs, my health started getting worse, studies, relationships with family, friends, everything was suffering from it. I knew that I only have two options either die doing it or live a happy life, follow my dreams and achieve them.
The hardest part…
I made a decision, left home, my parents, and shifted to Delhi. I thought moving to a place where no one knows me, where I won’t get the drugs easily is a good idea. This was the second chance I got to start a new life, but deep down I knew It’s not gonna be easy.
Because the hardest part was dealing with the post-withdrawal symptoms like the urge for drugs, insomnia, hormonal changes, and a lot more. It’s the toughest part and almost every person trying to quit drugs gives up at this stage. But I told myself that I have to go through it, so I remember the time when I left home, my parent’s faces, and all the sadness I brought them with my addiction. That really motivates me to try harder and I knew no one can help me, it’s me only I have to help myself.
As I said almost every person gives up post withdrawal. I remember I almost gave up that day and went to the chemist shop to buy syrup and some sleeping pills but he denied it and asked me for a prescription. So, I left the shop in between the urge of drugs & wanting to quit. Next to the chemist was a gym. I sat on the stairs for about half an hour and saw people work out from outside.
That was the time when I decided to join the gym as a therapy. And I had this passion for working out from my kid days, even before drugs I worked out for a year. June 10, 2015, was my first day in the gym. I worked out for 2 hours, got myself tired as much as I could. I felt so good when I get home. I actually ate so much after a long time. Though I still felt the urge to do drugs, as I continued gym regularly I felt it go away. That was the best decision of my life.
Back then, I didn’t know much about fitness. but still, after a few months, I got changes in my body which motivate me to do it more and this is how I get more addicted to it.
Then I started educating myself about workouts and nutrition. I have read tons of articles, researches day and night for a year. Then I got myself certified in sports science nutrition. Educating yourself is important but applying that knowledge is most important and that’s what I did next.
Before and After
This is how I look now. The most important thing to transform your body is Nutrition, Workout, and consistency. I am living a busy life right now but still somehow manage to work out, get my nutrition right and have fun.
