Q: How did you get started on Virtual Personal Trainer?

Because of my career, I put sports or workouts a bit apart for a few years. I am much of a world travel person. Perhaps because of my traveling experiences and relationship with different cultures, one day I realized I was getting very fat and consciously unhealthy.

I will encourage people to find partners, as jumping a new idea or business without much help or resources it's quite a very long-term challenge, which makes it easier to quit if things do not go the way you expected.


I could not believe my weight was as much as 223 lbs (101 kgs). Too much business traveling and eating outside with no control over my food habits and spare time made me like that, I thought. But someday in July 2012, I opened my eyes to reality and that day was the beginning of a new resolution for me: "I never thought I would reach three ciphers. I will never be like this again", I promised myself. As of today, I am 65 kg and I’ve been like this, one kg up, one kg down, since then.
