If you do a google on goals this is what you will get:

"Goals originate within a person's mind and are stored primarily in the subconscious. The "stored" thoughts are put into action by the conscious. For example, when a person continually tells themselves they will never accomplish anything this message is stored in the subconscious section of their mind. (here is a description of the unconscious if you are not familiar with it: Once these "messages" are stored in the subconscious mind they are put into action by the conscious mind. The consequence of this mindset is the person unconsciously acts to fulfill the thought of accomplishing nothing."

These were just words until I realize one day that I need to change myself and that day onwards I started to put my subconscious thoughts into my conscious thoughts.

Setting up goal is as important as setting up time and day to take a flight. If you miss it you will miss the flight! Goal setting could be as simple as that.

In 2007 I decided to change the way I look and started to think about it 24X7. I have always achieved everything that I had ever desired for! I feel lucky to have the motivation that gets me going when everyone around me points in other direction.

I started my journey in Dec. of 2007. Early morning cardio in my garage, eating the same food every day, looking away from the food that I know will get me in trouble and working out at odd time resulted in not only achieving my goal but also gave me the motivation to dream beyond norm. In 2008 Oct I had my photo shoot and I looked like a new person! Every meal that I missed, every party that I sat and looked around for something healthy to eat and every B'Day parties that I sneaked out of... was all paid off. My health, my look and my motivation all pushed me to think beyond norm and I started to work on sharing that knowledge to anyone who is on the lookout!

Its true that if you want something bad enough..all you have to do is decide that you really want it and everything around you will change to bring you closer to your goal.

Set-up a goal and be positive. Don't loose hope in few days cause you are not seeing the result that you expected. Everything has a time and place and things will happen if you are honest and trying hard.

Below is my picture in Nov. 2007 and then in Oct. 2008. Take a look and decide which one you would rather be!

No matter what your goal it loosing weight, buying a house, or starting a matter what...the first thing we need to do is to set up a goal and have the desire to work on that goal....

My next goal is make Bollywood Bootcamp a huge success and I am tirelessly working in doing just that!

Make sure you pass along this blog to anyone who needs a little motivation...we all have our own ways of getting motivated....

Take Care and remember....

First Deserve - Then Desire!

5 Most effective ways to train yourself without any equipment!

Q1. I Don’t have much time to workout?
Q2. I Want to develop real strength?

Do you see yourself asking these questions...if so >

Then please keep reading because in this blog I will outline the 5 Most effective ways to train yourself without any equipment! that will not only help you get stronger but also burn a lot of calories YES a lot of it!

Compound exercises are simply exercises that target more than one muscle group. For
clarity, exercises that target a single muscle group are called isolation exercises.

1. Squats :
The king of all exercises

Squats not only works your lower body but they also make your HR go up so you get the benefit of weight training & Cardio at the same time.

CORRECT FORM: Make sure that when you squat your knees should never go beyond your toes. (you should be able to see your big toe over looking your knee!)

2. Push-ups: Back to basics

This exercise can be done on a chair, steps, floor while on your knees or standing up against the wall. This could be included in the workout of beginners or really advanced. I have been training for over 10 yrs now and do them every single time when I train myself. You can get a good cardio just by doing these.

CORRECT FORM: Make sure that your hands are directly below your shoulders. Aim at touching your chest to the floor keeping your body straight.

3. Lunges:

A great leg toner that will also build explosive strength in the heart and lungs.

CORRECT FORM: Keeping your back straight lung forward with one leg paying close attention to the leg that is behind you & taking your knee almost to the floor. Make sure that you don't touch the floor with you knee.

4. Jump Rope: Old is gold!

If you have a jump rope or just pretending to be holding one, this workout works like a charm. It gets your HR your legs and makes you sweat. Anywhere & anytime is the beauty of this workout.

CORRECT FORM: Make sure to land softly when you are actually jumping the rope. Come down on your toes and jump back up. Either count to a certain number or time yourself.

5. Step-ups: What goes up - comes down!

If you have steps in your house then this is a killer and you don't have any excuse. Go up and down the steps 5-10 times in a 3 set format non-stop for a total body workout.

CORRECT FORM: Hold while coming down and to add a little variation try to cover 2 steps at a time.

If you follow the above described exercise routine everyday (5-6 days a week) in a 3 set format one after the other, I guarantee that you will loose weight and will feel the difference in your energy right away!

Eat right and exercise is the only Mantra for a fit body and a fit mind!

Thank you
