Story of Bharat Singh Walia

Back in 2011, Bharat was a very skinny person by personality. The latter reveals that he was so slim and weak that he never had much confidence in himself. He says, ” Just Stepping into the classroom and getting seated at my place every day looked like a huge task to me.’

While playing sports like Cricket and Football, nobody used to add Bharat to their team, said Bharat in his interview with Tarun Gill.

In 2012, he decided to work on his personality and got a membership in a nearby local gym. He bunked his tuition classes and went to the gym without his parents’ knowledge. But within six months of training, he gained so much muscle mass that his parents somehow figured out his secret.

They didn’t restrict Bharat but instead permitted him to continue with his journey.

With time, Bharat got even more dedicated with his Bodybuilding lifestyle. After two years of gymming, Bharat started competing in local competitions. (Although he didn’t join the gym with this intention)

After reaching an intermediate stage, Bharat’s requirement for supplements had increased even more. He required more money to purchase them. But being from a middle-class family, Bharat could not afford it with his pocket money.

To meet his requirements, he soon started working as a helper in the gym, and within a few months, he became a certified trainer of the same Gym.

After five years of hardcore routine with zero social life, no parties, and no entertainment, Bharat Singh Walia finally became a professional bodybuilder when he won his “Mr. Universe” title at the Muscle Mania.
