Aashka Goradia talks about her fitness khiladi Hemal Shah
Though always conscious, Aashka Goradia has followed her own work out programme for years that made her look and feel good. However, when she was selected for Khatron ke Khiladi 4 she realised that she needed more. So enter Hemal Shah, fitness guru and expert trainer who runs his own company 'Fighting Fit". After merely a 10 day training she knew she had made the right decision, “I feel extremely happy to say that much credit goes to Hemal Sir for me to do well in Khatron Ke Khiladi 4. We have done maximum functional training, kick boxing and mind strengthening exercise which was the only requirement of the show. I sincerely thank him and suggest the youth to follow the pattern of exercise that he has to offer," says Aashka.
Hemal Shah explains the regimen he chartered for Aashka, “Keeping the concept of Khatron Ke Khiladi 4 in mind, we concentrated more on core with TRX , balancing and co – ordination. We used everyday props like a book, a mobile, chair for balance and even made her climb from the 20 th floor to the 25 th floor by the staircase grill for perfect co – ordination of mind and body. We emphasised to her that it is important to finish the stunt and time doesn"t matter. What matters is only the 6 S – Strength, Skill, Speed, Stamina, Suppleness and Spirit."
Hemal Shah himself has been trained in kalaripayat, Indian karate, jiujitsu, muaythai, taichi, short stick fight and Indian lathi. He has extensive teaching experience with 22 years of Martial Arts Training + 11 years in total body fitness training. He has trained celebrities like Tabu, Aamna Sharif, Sayali Bhagat, Raima Sen, Raveena Tandon, Ekta Kapoor, Aftab Shivdasani, Kiran Dubey, Aashka, Anita and Deepika Padukone.
