The best gym in Mumbai could very well be your playground. At least that’s what fitness trainer and self-confessed enthusiast Sohrab Khushrushahi believes. He launched Sohfit in October with the clear objective of making your average gym workouts fun.
Khushrushahi gave up a thriving career practicing law, for his love of fitness. He left the glassy confines of leading law firms such as Linkalaters (Singapore) and Trilegal (Mumbai) to strike out on his own, and start afresh.
For his bootcamps he chooses classic playground games, and weaves in an element of exercise. So a regular game of ‘Catch and Cook’ or ‘Dog and the Bone’ ends with the loser doing 15 burpees or squats. Though his brand was officially launched last month, he’s been helping his friends achieve their fitness goals for almost a year now – one of whom remarkably went from 80 kg on the scale to 56 kg.
“For me, it’s always been about having fun. You can’t be stressed about that one hour you spend in the gym. A lot of people treat it as a chore,” he says. His personal tryst with fitness began at 12 years of age, when he started training for cricket and he hasn’t looked back since.
