Sharma, a resident of Thana Road Shillong, started training in kettlebells in 2018. His interest in crossfitters and UFC fighters using kettlebells led him to Guwahati where he met trainer Pulak Biswas. I learned about the nuances of Kettlebells from him,” said the 38-year-old champion.
Sharma soon realised that kettlebells can be fun as it is different from the usual workout. He bettered himself by working on his strength, cardio and endurance. In no time, he was lifting 20kg kettlebells with ease and it was then that he decided to go for the sport.
