Talwalkar was started by a single person, Mr. Vishnu Talwalkar in 1932 at a time when the concept of health clubs as seen today was non-existent. Starting from a single branch in Mumbai with no more than a few dumbbells, barbells and wooden benches, it slowly became popular as a place where even non-body builders and non wrestlers could work out safely and effectively. Today, Talwalkars has a pan India presence with 200 branches in important cities across the country. The Talwalkars USP has been responsible for the exponential growth of the chain to make it the largest health club chain in India. With in-depth research and constant trips abroad to gain access to cutting edge equipment and training techniques, Talwalkars as a whole is current with all the international trends and methodology of workouts and latest cardiovascular and gym machines. Each client is treated as an individual and workouts are designed after a detailed fitness profiling of the client. Due to these aspects Talwalkars is always the first option for people between 25 to 60 looking for fitness and for safe and natural weight reduction. The exercise trainers are trained in the latest exercise techniques and safety standards.
