Shri Madhukar Talwalkar





Shri Madhukar Vishnu Talwalkar, is the Executive Chairman of M/s Talwalkars Better Value Fitness Limited. He holds Bachelor's degree in Textile Engineering from Veer Jijamata Technical Institute, Mumbai and has over 50 years of experience in health and fitness industry. He has been the Founder President of Greater Bombay Body Builders Association and is the current President of Maharashtra State Body Builders Federation. He has been driving force for Talwalkars Gyms and has significantly contributed in the industry of health and fitness

Shri Madhukar Talwalkar, now 80Plus, began his first Talwalkars gym in 1962, taking forward what his father, Vishnu Ramkrishna Talwalkar started in 1932 under the name 'New Physical Culture'. Three decades later, it was re-christened as Talwalkars. Says Talwalkar, "In our time, we didn't have supplements and steroids, neither was there any modern equipment to work out on. Also, there was no trend of using drugs to boost performances so we never had doping tests. We used to follow correct techniques and work hard. A lot has changed now. Science has brought in a lot of positives but there are negative aspects as well."

Talwalkar belies his age. Talking about how the years sit so lightly on him, he says, "I eat five to six times in a day but each intake is less in quantity. I don't have any addictions. I don't consume liquor, I don't smoke and I have never had tea or coffee in my entire life. I have a gym in my house where I exercise regularly and religiously. For me, exercise is just like performing pooja."
