The Man Behind Crazy Athlete

Bishnu Pada Das

Hey, you amazing people, I’m Bishnu! Let’s know how it all started.

Back in my post-10th-grade exam, I was 17 years old, a skinny, underconfident guy. After the exam, there were a few months’ gaps for the next grade admission. And I decided to start exercising.

However, I didn’t have access to a gym or exercise equipment. So, I make a pair of dumbbells and a barbell at home with rock and cement with the help of an uncle. I’m super excited to work out, and during this time, most of my days are spent watching fitness videos and scrolling through websites to learn more about exercise and diet.

I became addicted to the feeling of finishing an intensive workout and eating healthy, nutritious foods. And found the love and passion for fitness.

And after a few months, I started seeing some dramatic positive changes in my confidence and energy level, good mood, and clarity of mind, and I was able to put on some muscle mass.

I love reading fitness and nutrition books and am passionate about learning and trying different exercises and nutrition.

For me, a day without exercising or not doing physical activity is like something I miss in the day. Beyond fitness, I love reading spiritual books, travelling, and spending time with nature.

After one boring year in a small Engineering college, I said enough is enough, and now I want to do what I enjoy: exercise and healthy eating.

I convinced my parents and dropped out of college. My parents are actually very supportive, and I’m so thankful for that.

I love writing, so I started a fitness blog. Interestingly, when I started blogging, the domain name was not CrazyAthlete. It was something else; later, I changed it to this.

I’ve done my Fitness Training Certification and started creating content in the fitness and nutrition space. And currently working on my NASM personal trainer certification.

I firmly believe that exercising hard without taking proper nutrition and enough rest is like one-third of the puzzle. You must be up to the make in training, diet, and rest to crash your desired fitness goal.

My dream is for it to help millions of people (like YOU), no matter what is your fitness level, smash your goals with confidence and feel amazing. 😉
