He takes an approach which is educated, experienced and honest about what’s actually important. He loves to provide consultancy to professional athletes with a tunnel mindset and vision. The interesting part is -for majority of the cases its free.
Sunil always had an inclination towards Sports since childhood. He represented his school at various Zonal Levels in Volleyball and Badminton. He started his fitness journey during college days and aspired to be a professional athlete. As he was doing good in studies, his family wanted him to pursue higher education. He continued his education to fulfil the dream and responsibility towards his family. He went on to complete his Master degree with scholarship from AICTE.
With immense love towards fitness, he didn’t leave any sports magazine, books, articles, research papers which really helped him to understand the concepts to the core. Instead of spending finance in Pune’s nightlife, he saved his scholarship money to pay dues for his college fees and other expenses and the rest of them to complete his fitness certifications.

His vision is to launch a Performance Lab for Sports Sciences in India and take the research in fitness Industry to Global Standards. He aspires to see an Indian Professional athlete on Mr. Olympia stage. India has the potential but due to lack of guidance at correct time and scientific knowledge in fitness domain, the athletes are not getting enough to compete at that level. There are certain things which are demand of the sports and only few legitimate (with solid education base) can turn the tables around. It’s all about the timing- The sooner an athlete gets acquaint with the scientific coaching, the longer their career will be. It’s a long road and you can’t compensate your health for a district/state level show.
