Fittest Male Indian Celebrities


Samir Becic, 4 times Number 1 Fitness Trainer in the World and the Health Fitness Revolution Team created a list of the top fittest male celebrities in India. Samir appreciates the historical and cultural heritage of India and sees India as one of the strongest countries in the world, with even stronger potential in the future. The Health Fitness Revolution team will go into every country in the world and every segment of society to pick its leaders and heroes in healthy lifestyle in order to create strong ambassadors who can be a great example for their followers, fans, voters, students, and employees.

In the words of Samir Becic, “You have more control over your body than you think- you can control, manage, or completely avoid 60-70% of known chronic conditions with physical fitness, healthy nutrition, and mental, social, and spiritual balance.”

We first researched all the available data on Indian celebs online and narrowed it down to 100. Then, we did more extensive research to narrow it down to 50 and then finally 36. We used a combination of interviews, internet, library, industry literature, and Samir Becic’s knowledge of over 33 years in athletics coupled with his experience as 4 times Number 1 Fitness Trainer in the World.

The list is in no particular order and none of the participants are professional athletes because we think professional athletes are a separate category.
