Eric Omondi wowed his fans and the internet a few weeks ago when he revealed his massive weight gain. You see, a lot of fans knew how much he wanted to put on some weight on his frail and lanky frame and were happy to see him finally achieve that.

But in recent days, we have seen the comedian lose all that mass and a lot of Kenyans are wondering why that is the case and I am here to say that the main issues are lack of discipline and no clear goal.

What do these things have to do with mass gains? Well, that is all down to how the fitness journey is supposed to unfold. And Eric Omondi didn’t really research his goal or how to achieve and maintain it.

He strikes me as a hard-gainer: an ectomorph if you will. What that means is that his genetics predispose him to being skinny and maybe that is down to an overactive metabolic rate.

By to define what or who Eric Omondi is, an ectomorph is one of the three most common body types (somatotypes), characterized by a “thin frame” and difficulty to gain muscle mass as well as fat. People that belong to this somatotype are usually skinny, lean and have a high metabolic rate.

He did not realize that the irony about going to the gym is that it is a journey that knows no end even after you achieve your ideal body. Basically, if you want muscle mass, you have to start going to the gym and to keep said muscles, you have to keep going.

Bwana Omondi lacked the discipline to stick to his regimen and we are seeing the outcome of that indiscipline -lost gains. And we can chalk this down to not fully researching and understanding his goal which means it was never truly clear.

What I would advise the comedian is for him to hire a personal trainer. Someone who can walk that fitness journey with him. The alternative is for him to actually focus entirely on doing the work on his own and that will result in wild differences in results as we are witnessing.

Eric would hire a mechanic for his car, why not hire a professional personal trainer to help him achieve his goals? Why not get someone who himself has done the work and understands biomechanics and basic biology on a practical level to help him achieve his goal? Plus I am sure he would take it much more seriously if he were paying someone to help him get buff.
