Nithin Jayaraj is a traditional workout tools trainer and is a pioneer in bringing traditional Indian fitness forms to the mainstream. He founded Shredded Farmer in 2017 with the mission to revamp the fitness scene in India and since then has gathered a dedicated follower base of 25,000+ people on Instagram. He specialises in using traditional fitness equipment like Gada, Mudgar, Indian clubs, Persian meels and Sumtola to help people get fitter, stronger, muscular and leaner.
According to Nithin, the traditional body building tools are far more beneficial than modern gym equipment. He says, “Gym equipment only offers two dimensional movement, i.e. up to down or left to right. So the focus is only on building muscles and tends to make your body stiff. However, traditional tools are designed to be used in a rotational movement, which focuses on joint strength, mobility & flexibility, helping the muscles grow in proportion to the height. Not just this, such movements make your grip stronger, help with joint injuries, encourage inch loss and fat loss, and help improve your body balance.”
Nithin is also a strong advocate of wholesome foods and no diet supplements. He offers an active lifestyle via all his courses giving his clients the flexibility to indulge with the foods they love. His courses come with Malayali diet plans offering a complete fitness regimen.
