Former physio of India's A-list cricket team John Gloster speaks to Health & Nutrition about high altitude training, Pilates and his stint with the men in blue.

What was the idea behind launching a fitness studio specifically dedicated to Pilates and Altitude Training Systems? Who is it aimed at?

The whole idea of starting a studio offering a combination of ATS (altitude training systems) and Pilates was to make people work out smarter and thereby derive greater benefits. I was introduced to the benefits of ATS many years ago but started using it intensively 3-4 years back to help Austrailian cricketer Shane Watson recover from a host of injuries. Watson benefited hugely from this therapy and earned a berth in the national team. That caused me to look at ATS therapy more closely.
