Written by | June 28, 2016 | 0

India’s Test captain Virat Kohli is a fitness enthusiast. The prolific batsman’s social media accounts are flooded with images which show him working out in the gym.

Even if one compares Virat’s current images with the ones taken a few years ago, the changes in his looks are eminently visible. It is a classic case of “flab to fab”. But, interestingly Virat revealed that his outlook towards fitness changed in the year 2012 and he brought drastic changes in his lifestyle to focus on his fitness.

“There was a time after Indian Premier League (IPL) 2012 when I started concentrating on my fitness. I changed my lifestyle after this year,” he said at a Stepathlon event in Delhi on Tuesday.

“I never listened to my body before 2012. But, I gradually realised that if I want to compete in the international cricket scene and want to sustain for a long time then getting fit is the key,” the 27-year-old said.

“I never wanted to be an average player and realised that to achieve high standards I need to make changes in my lifestyle,” he added.
