People in earlier times started working out to stay fit and as times have changed, the meaning of fitness has changed, from being fit to looking good.

Singh is somewhat of a mixture of both.

He not only works out to stay healthy but also to stay happy.

“When I am entering the gym, I don’t think of it as a gym but as a wedding or a party,” said Singh. “I consider this place as my home and family.”

Singh, started working out at the early age of nine, and after hitting a few bumps in his fitness journey he has been consistent in the gym since 2009.

Singh was introduced to the gym by his brother, BK.

The most important thing when it comes to staying fit and working out is the motivation behind it. Every person needs a reason to stay fit and Singh had many. Growing up, like many teenagers, Singh started working out to look good. Now the motivation has changed, and it is for his mom.

“I work out for her,” he said.
Singh is a very family-oriented person.

“If you don’t love your parents, you cannot love anyone else, even yourself,” he said.

Friend Jay Dhillon says he can’t believe Singh is 53.

“What a fantastic person he is,” said Dhillon. “I still remember we had a workout together and that was the best workout of my life.”

A gym is a place where you can find a lot of people from different religions and communities but Singh is the kind of person who has made the gym his religion and community.

Singh tries to make friends with every single person in the gym. He goes up to newcomers and helps them with their exercises.

Because of his fitness, Singh may look intimidating to those who don’t know him, but he is a very polite person and he considers everyone in the gym as his little brother or sisters. He helps them out exactly how his elder brother BK helped him — out of love.

“Looking (at) him exercise in the gym gives me energy and I have no idea how,” says Haiya Sitlani, who also works out at the gym. “He is just so energetic and the way he treats the other people in the gym is just fantastic.”

Singh wants people to work out in a way that makes them happy and that’s his advice to the younger generation.
