From being an aggressive cricketer to a mature captain who believes in keeping things under control, Virat Kohli is undoubtedly the best we have. And one of the many ways in which Virat inspires everyone is his fitness.

But do you know, how did your favourite cricketer became a fitness freak? Well, it is all because of ‘The Fletcher effect’. Yes, not many people are aware that his small conversation with former Indian coach Duncan Fletcher changed the way he used to look at fitness.

Virat Kohli always wanted to excel in all kinds of formats of cricket. And for that, one thing that was needed was FITNESS. He started looking at fitness more seriously after Indian Premier League 2012. He changed everything – from eating habits to this exercises.

In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Virat said, ‘Duncan told me once that he feels cricket is the most unprofessional of professional sports. You need a set pattern of your training, the way you eat, how healthy and fit you need to be. Being fitter made me mentally stronger. It was like a direct connection’.

And while it was tough for him in the starting, as his training was horrible and ate so bad, things gradually changed for him, and today he is one of the fittest cricketers we have.

He said, ‘I was 11 or 12kgs heavier than I am now, I was really chubby. I changed everything from the next morning from what I eat to how I train. I was in the gym for an hour-and-a-half every day. Working really hard, off gluten, off wheat, no cold drinks, no desserts, nothing. It was toug’.

During the interview, he said that he changed his training again. Virat Kohli said, ‘I remember running after a ball in a Test series in Sri Lanka and I felt more power in my legs. It was, like, ‘wow’. This training is addictive. The last year-and-a-half it has taken my game to another level’. To read the full interview, click here.

Well, for a man, who considered himself ‘chubby’, he has definitely come a long way.

NZ Captain Ross Taylor shouted Bh*****d. And how Virat reacted was EPIC!
