Devrath Vijay – The Fitness Ninja

Fitness has become such an eminent part of our everyday lives. The culture in Bangalore dictates a healthy balance between work and recreation. What strikes the millennial chords are the varied options that help them curate their fitness regime. The possibility to choose from a multitude of sessions like zumba, body combat, tabatha, power yoga and the likes, all under one roof. One man saw this as an opportunity to break out of his 9-5 grind and spread the concept of functional fitness; the ability to use your everyday body movements to emphasize core stability and train your muscles to work together.

Devrath was just another techie in this urban city but with a dream to make a difference. Now one of the most sought-after trainers in Bangalore and founder of ‘The Outfit’, Devrath is currently traveling across the globe to spread his fitness philosophy and learn from some of the finest international coaches. A true reflection of an Indian man who risks it all for passion and grit, Devrath believes fitness is a way of life. It’s not about the sweat or the ripped muscles but about functional body movements, using your core muscles to build strength and endurance. Just as Tailorman, he too is an advocate of fit and form. His discipline and dedication towards strength and conditioning has driven his organic followership on social media and definitely left a ripple in fitness institutions as he trains and certifies trainers across the country.

We had the unique opportunity to chat with Devrath, suited in a ready-to-wear suit from Tailorman’s new western-wear collection. He surely didn’t fail to leave an impression with his grounded wit and charismatic confidence, and here’s a bit from our one-on-one with the fitness ninja who’s shaping the fitness world, one squat at a time.
