John AbrahamWhile John Abraham is gearing up for his next release Madras Cafe, we caught up with his fitness trainer Kris Gethin who tells us how he is transforming John’s physique in a mere 12 weeks. Read on to find out what the actor is doing to get back in shape after a long hiatus of eight months from the gym.

John is already a very fit actor. How are you making him fitter?

I wasn’t willing to work with John for precisely this reason in the first place but when I revisited him several months ago, he told me he hadn’t trained in the past 8 months and that he was completely out of shape. I did not believe him and asked him to let me have a look at what his body looked like. And honestly, when I saw, it seemed as if the guy had never picked up a weight in his life. So I knew it was going to be a challenge for me to get him back in shape, and that’s why I decided to work with him. The current look we are working on is an athletic appearance which is lean, appealing and will add versatility to his career.

Could you tell us about John’s workout regimen?

kris training johnJohn predominantly trains four times a week. Each session is about 45 minutes long and is extremely intense in nature. We follow a training style called Y3T but include my own training style called DTP every third week. But he does cardiovascular exercise twice a day, every single day for about 30 minutes. 

What diet does he follow?

John’s diet is specified for his blood type and body-type but mostly consists of egg whites and fish for protein. In addition to this, he gets his carbohydrates from brown rice, sweet potatoes and oatmeal. He eats fibre-rich food in the form of mixed greens like asparagus, broccoli, spinach, cabbage, lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, etc. in a salad and the dressing used is vinaigrette, soy sauce or sugar-free syrups. 

Does John ever cheat on his diet by indulging in desserts or junk food once in a while?

Not at all! John does not cheat on his diet ever. Both of us believe that a diet does not involve any cheat days, if those are there, it is not a challenge. What we are trying to achieve here is many years worth of results in several months and John is aware of this – there is no room for any cheating.

Is this workout for a specific role for a film?

john working out with krisNo, John is training to get back in shape. He’s been fit for most part of his life but this was the worst phase for him as far as fitness is concerned. He wasn’t eating well, had been dealing with a lot of stress and workload, and not working out. But he understands he has to be fit in general for all his movies but more so, to feel more confident, stronger and better about himself.

How long will it take to see the results of this workout on John’s physique?

With my clients following my programme, I guarantee results in just 12 weeks. So, by the end of August, his body will be completely transformed into a lean, athletic physique that he is known for.

    It doesn’t take a genius to really see dramatic changes in one’s physical appearance. If you eat healthy 80-90% of the time, have good high intensity 4-6 weight lifting sessions per weeks, and 20-40 minute 4-6 cardio sessions (minutes vary depending on LISS or HIIT cardio) a week you are almost guaranteed to get results. It is safe to say, especially for any beginner if you were to start ANY PROGRAM containing what I just listed (80-90% good on nutrition, 4-6 high intensity, with 4-6 Hiit/LISS cardio) you will see RESULTS!! It is funny how people get caught up with oh this program is the best or that is because they have seen a few people with results. Each program is going to be different for each person and not necessarily suit their mental health. Because even though the program will work for you, your mental state might not be up for that. So you don’t have to give up, just be smart and realistic that it will take longer for you to achieve your goals. What will also help is staying with the program, but extending it with an extra day here and there or working gradually week to week to encourage yourself of the progress you are making. Hope this helps!
