Actor Shashank Vyas has totally transformed the way he looks. The actor has bulked up on muscle, and his well-chiseled body has never looked better before. However, this was not an easy journey for him. The actor says that besides working out and eating right, there is a fundamental need to isolate in order to completely transform the way you look. “I feel that isolating yourself is very important when you are into fitness. I know how many times I have said no to my friends, how many parties I have missed during my training. I would just take out one hour for my family functions. I have even refused work because I wanted to come back with a great transformation. So, in that process, isolation is very important. Somewhere down the line, I have become selfish in those five months of my transformation,” he says.
Shashank was trained by an expert, who has also trained other actors. “My trainer’s name is Vikramjit Singh and he has his own gym called Rubaina’s Fitness Club and Spa in Kandivali West. I approached him there at first and he said he doesn’t have time. But I requested him genuinely because I had heard a lot about him. He used to train Karan Singh Grover, Eijaz Khan, Barkha Bisht etc. I kept trying to persuade him and he finally gave in,” he says.
Shashank’s training had many levels. “He started at a very slow pace with me but when he saw that I am totally dedicated, he also got motivated. Muscle building is a very difficult task. He used to train me twice a day, one and a half hours in the morning and 4 hours in the afternoon, non-stop!” says Shashank.
