The CEO who can’t skip a single day of exercise

GOQii CEO Vishal Gondal hasn't missed a single day of weight training during lockdown.

Gondal is aiming to get a four pack by the end of 2020.
GOQii CEO Vishal Gondal says he hasn’t missed a single day of weight training during the lockdown. “Just before we went into lockdown, one of my team members challenged me to get a four-pack by December 31,” he said. “People started a bet to see whether I’d achieve the challenge or not. If I manage to get a fourpack, they have to pay me `1 lakh, and if I don’t, I have to pay them four times the money collected.”

At last count, the pool was Rs 8.5 lakh and Gondal is using every tool in his arsenal to ensure he won’t have to cough up Rs 34 lakh. “There is an entire army [including friends like Vijay Shekhar Sharma] that doesn’t want me to get that four-pack and I’m working very hard not to pay them 4x. I do about 1,500 skips a day, some weight training, some treadmill. I have a company coach who does a remote training session with me every day. I’ve basically used every aspect to work on my health and I’d say I’m about 75 per cent there,” he added.
