'I’ve trained actresses'

I don't have a physical trainer, though I have trained lot of actresses. They should thank me in their interviews.

TV actor Gaurav Chopra has plenty of fitness tips to share.

My vital statistics:

Height: 6’1”, weight: 78 kilos, biceps: 21”, chest: 42”.

Fitness for me:

Is not just going to the gym and having a flat stomach, it is also about having a healthy state of mind. I first wore a size 30 pair of jeans 15 years back and today I am 30 years old and still wear the same size.

My fitness regime:

I hit the gym three-four times a week. I carry some weights with me to the shoot and work out whenever I get time. I also like to dance. It burns fat but and I enjoy it.

My diet:

I take five meals a day. I have fruits and a dairy product along with something filling for breakfast, sprouts or salad between breakfast and lunch. My lunch is quite normal. But I forget dieting when I see Indian sweets and muffins.

The Bollywood body I envy the most:

I like the way Rahul Bose maintains himself. He is not tall or broad. He has made sure that his muscle size is proportionate to his height, otherwise he would look stumpy.

The body that I would like to have:

When I was a kid, I wanted to be like Sylvester Stallone.

The Bollywood and TV actress with the fittest body:

I think Bipasha looks sexy, though she doesn’t look that fit to me. Narayani Shastri has lost a lot of weight. She better give credit to me because I introduced her to a gym.

The body part I love training:

My shoulders.

The body part I hate training:

My abs.

The best compliment that I have got for my body:

I was dancing and this girl said: ‘Guys who dance this well and use their body this well are great in bed as well’.

The gym I work out in:

The People’s

My personal trainer:

I don't have one, though I have trained lot of actresses. They should thank me in their interviews.
