FIRST INDIAN TO WIN A PRO SHOW
2019 Vancouver Pro Champ, Mr Olympia Qualified
Bhuwan Chauhan is the first Indian to win IFBB Pro show and the first Indian to qualify for Mr Olympia in Men’s Physique Division. Having been born and brought up in India, he went to Canada in 2011 for his undergraduate studies in Petroleum Engineering and passed with distinction in 2015 while immediately working at a big oil and gas company until he decided to start competing in 2016.
Turning his passion into his profession, he quit his job in May 2018 to pursue his bodybuilding goals full time as sponsored athlete and started his coaching company Bhuwan Chauhan Fitness aka Team Bhuwan.
Through my Ascension programs, my goal is to help improve one’s physique through optimal training and nutrition. It is about getting better; physically, emotionally and mentally.
It was developed to help not only athletes, but also the people wanting to improve their health and wellness. As an Engineer myself, I know that the single most important barrier that comes in people’s way is “time shortage”, which is why while working I had to come up with strategies that minimized the time in the gym while being flexible enough to incorporate outside meals.
Everything is possible. EVERYTHING! If you put your heart into it and have proper guidance.
