The actor has acquired the latest in fitness technology with Tuff Stuff's Power Rack
Perfectionist Aamir Khan has added new equipment to his home gym. Says Aamir's trainer Satyajit Chourasia, "Aamir has acquired a big garage next to his home and I've converted it into a gym with all the latest equipment. The latest addition is Tuff Stuff's Power Rack, which is used only by professional body builders."
The next step
What's the power rack for? Satya says, "It's meant for perfect alignment and posture. Since it's an upright machine, weights won't have to be lifted from the ground.
That way, Aamir won't have to waste even one per cent of energy. It's a zero-injury machine, which costs nearly Rs 9 lakh and can be used by people of all ages. It gives you one of the best workouts ever."
Satya adds that Aamir maintains his diet and exercise regime even after he's achieved the lean body he wanted for his Ghajini remake. "Aamir has amazing will-power. His energy levels are so high. Now that we've achieved what we attempted, we have to take it to another level."
Satya says choreographer Ahmed Khan was so excited at seeing Aamir's fit body and six-pack abs that he changed the song Aamir was doing in the Ghajini remake. "Aamir looks like a 23-year-old in the song. The public won't believe it's him. He's gone bare-bodied with tattoos all over it. Aamir aag laaga dega!" says Satya.
