It is critical to take care of your health, but it can be overwhelming if you don’t know where to begin. When you achieve a balance between your physical, mental, and social well-being, your fitness path becomes harmonious. In this article, we will look into one of the most asked questions to Mr Yash Birla – What inspired Yash Birla to begin his fitness journey?
Change can be challenging, particularly when you are just beginning your fitness journey. Everyone goes through the five stages of change: pre-contemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, and maintenance. So, let us get a deeper look at what inspired Yash Birla to begin his fitness journey.
While talking about his complete journey of holistic and physical wellness, Yash Birla says, “Basically, holistic wellness is spirituality also if you look at it. If you ask me how it started, then that is what I believe is Karmic. I have said often that we come with certain pre-disposed Sanskaras or personality traits at the age of 12 or 13, I used to pick up books on philosophy, spirituality, re-incarnation, and Upanishads which used to give a lot of mental peace and answers to questions which I had internally. Obviously, that is only spiritual.” He further adds, “My actual passion for fitness started when I was studying in the United States at the Chapel Hill University of North Carolina, and I was pursuing my MBA there.” “In my free hours over there, I did not really find anything else to do because I used to study for almost 14 hours a day, and the rest of the time I used to go to a mall or hear some chants walking around in the forest. Then, I decided to explore the gyms, and when I went to the gym it motivated me a lot. There are huge gyms in the US, and a lot of people are into fitness.”
While talking about what inspired Yash Birla to begin his fitness journey, he shares, “I started working out, and the results started showing very quickly. When you start working out, you see an overall change in your body, fitness level, and confidence.” “That was more than two decades ago, and that journey never stopped because once you taste success in changing or metamorphosing your body, then it kind of becomes an addiction in a good way. You never let go because it adds value to everything in your life. So it is still the same thing that I started way back in the United States of America.” His whole approach towards fitness is very inspiring and motivating enough to make a person start their individual journey towards a better self.
