HOW SAMRAT USES FITNESS TO TURN HIS STRUGGLES INTO STRENGTH

"My journey started about 4 years ago when I fell into a slump, and all I did was party, play video games, drink, smoke eat, and sleep. Before I knew it, I had stopped spending time on the hobbies I used to enjoy and this became my life. Growing up I was always thin, but after heading down this destructive path, I began gaining a lot of weight. I noticed that I had become slow, and I constantly fatigued; sometimes even numb. Until one day, I decided that I had to make a change. I knew that I couldn't waste my life like this. So I decided to join a gum and it was the best decision I have ever made. It was difficult to get started, of course, but I pushed through and started making progress. I used to think that fitness was only about making your body fit, however, I have realized that it also helps tremendously mentally and emotionally by combating stress. Instead of partying, drinking, etc., I made exercising a daily habit. That was my journey from thin, to overweight, to fit and I believe that everyone should get involved in fitness, be it at the gym or joining a sport. Not only for your body, but for your mind and health as well."

FUN FACT

"I think my aim and desire to do anything is a unique fact about myself. I never thought that I could transform myself like this, but it took that desire and courage to make the change."
