Nikhil Kapur is more than just a businessman, he’s an Ironman. The founder of Atmantan has taken part in five international Ironman events (a series of long-distance triathlon races) so far since 2014. His last one in Hamburg in July was the most taxing of them all.

“The Ironman bug bit me in 2012 and when I heard of this gruelling challenge. I was inspired. After seeing some crazy race videos and testimonials, I knew I had to try and do this.”

Rising Up To The Challenge

7 Jun, 2018
Narendra Modi may have needed India skipper Virat Kohli to set him a fitness challenge, but these business heads are setting their own health goals.

And while the training can be tedious, Kapur insists that the satisfaction from completing one is unmatchable.

The triathlon even helps Kapur in his professional life. “It has taught me to reflect, analyse, and strategise like never before. I have an uncanny focus when it comes to my professional life and I must credit that to the Ironman… it makes you feel like every impossible is possible. The sense of achievement is very self-satisfying,” Kapur said.
