Every young athlete, professional or amateur, drams of having the power to conquer the world. However, Indian athletes face many difficulties in terms of facilities and resources, to develop themselves into world class sports persons. A disadvantage experienced by Mahesh chaudhary, a champion bodybuilder of yesteryears himself and the founder of Hercules.
The birth of Hercules in 1987, as a gym in the then unknown small city of Gurgaon was a dream come true for Mahesh chaudhary, a national and Asian level judge in the Indian body building federation which is recognized by the Indian government. It was a dedicated effort to help young Indian athletes and bodybuilders become world-class professionals. Soon, the company expanded to form a chain of 15 health clubs spread all over Gurgaon. It also started supplying exercising equipment to smaller health clubs in surrounding areas.
Exercise and training alone are not sufficient to build up a great physique. One also requires proper food supplements that help in the all-round development of their body. A need well understood by Hercules, especially in the context of an Indian athlete’s dietary requirements. So, we decided to develop and market cost-effective and quality supplements for Indian athletes. In this respect, 1997 was a landmark year for Hercules. It was then that Hercules launched its first range of health supplements.
