Vijay's life journey so far has been quite the ride. Vijay started martial arts when he was 5 years old and has been actively fighting ever since; he's had various titles to his name in Mixed Martial Arts, Judo, and Jiu Jitsu. Vijay has also been a personal trainer for over 20 years, and owns and operates a company named Aspire Higher Health & Fitness where he leads online boot camps and motivational and lifestyle strategies sessions. In his youth he was clinically obese and had a very hard road ahead of him. However, Vijay was always one who gladly accepted being an underdog because he absolutely loves a challenge. One of Vijay's favorite quotes is "Throw me to the wolves and I'll return leading the pack" because that is exactly how he aspires to live his life.
“And this is what I wore today for the scene it was quite the privilege To meet and be in a scene with @katemara who was a really nice person,” shared on his social media in October.

Vijay had a battle against stage 4 cancer when he was 21; the cancer progressed and he was given a terminal stage diagnosis and put on palliative care. He went through Chemo and radiation, and ultimately everything he had worked very hard to build was stolen by this disease. He went into the hospital at 250 lbs and had to stay there for 3 months and by the time he left, multiple surgeries later, he weighed 121 lbs. It was a very dark time after Vijay was sent home and he almost didn't think he was going to survive.
By the grace of the powers above, and the love of his family and friends, he found the strength to fight back. Vijay was inspired by all of the people who supported him and began his journey to rebuild. After Vijay found himself again, the challenge reinvigorated him. He went back to fighting, he went back to training and he took his life back, and loved showing people why there is nothing they can't do if they want it.

“I have worked in business and leadership for over 20 years in a wide variety of industries. I completed my MBA with a specialization in International Business in 2010 at the University of Alberta. As much as I love being in the business world my passion is helping people.
