Rocky is no stranger to the exercise world.
“I’ve been working for the last eight years. I’m an advanced-level trainee with big muscle,” he says.
How then did he sign up for HealthifyMe?
Rocky, an engineering professional, says he got very bored designing new workout schedules week after week.
“I also found that I had reached a kind of plateau – it wasn’t going up or down; neither forward nor backward. That’s when I thought maybe I should consult some other specialist,” she says.
Rocky, who initially downloaded the HealthifyMe app to track his calories, soon realized he could glean a world of expert advice here.
‘I wanted to stretch my limits and improve my physique’
“My focus was to stretch my limits and improve my physique. I wanted to gain a sharper body, where muscle tone was more evident,” he says.
Your trainer at HealthifyMe decided that the best path to this journey was to create a workout specific to your body type and requirements.
“I exercised about 45 minutes a day and followed the schedule provided by my trainer Varun,” remembers Rocky.
Since Rocky usually finds it difficult to find time during the workday, he decided to schedule his daily exercise around 9pm after the workday was over.
“This ensured that I could exercise every day religiously. My trainer was very helpful and mapped out my exercise regimen depending on my fitness level,” he says.
Cardio – a variety of it – and strength training were the cornerstone of his training regimen.
“As far as diet goes, it was kind of fluid and it changed depending on what goal we were aiming for,” he says.
“Even today, I try to keep my calorie intake under 2,500 a day and make sure I eat around 170g of protein,” he adds.
For the first three months, Rocky and his trainer focused on getting him ripped, after which his trainer created a diet and exercise routine that changed every 3 weeks to help him gain 7 pounds of muscle.
Sticking to diet and training to maintain muscle
“I make sure I stick to my diet and exercise routine, even if I’m busy,” he adds.
Rocky is extremely happy with his HealthifyMe journey so far and he credits the trainers for his deep knowledge and friendly nature of the trainers.
“Even though we’ve been training for almost the same number of years, Varun had some good advice to share with an advanced trainee like me. Also, I’ve found that the cost of hiring a personal trainer here isn’t much compared to running a gym,” he says.
Would he recommend HealthifyMe to others? Pat arrives at the answer: “Definitely!”
