He is a native of Chengdu.After graduating from high school, he left Chengdu to become an educated youth in The countryside in Bailong District, Jiange County in response to national policies.To go to the commune as a farmer, at that time from six in the morning to work in the field, to seven or eight in the evening to rest, a day down only 8 cents income, but Xu Zhilin was also very happy, at least they can feed themselves.With hard work and continuous learning, Xu was admitted to Sichuan University later.After graduating from university, Xu Zhilin and many young people like devoting to the struggle of the career, every day life is very single, from home to the company, and then from the company home, simple and mechanical repeat such a life.For his own work, he is also very hard, during the working period if those work can not be finished, he will also desperately stay up to finish the work before taking a rest.Except in his spare time, Xu went to barbecues and beer with his friends. He was young and never considered his health. He thought happiness was the most important thing.Around 1990, Xu Zhilin began his business career as the general agent of a well-known Chinese liquor brand in Europe. Due to the demands of his work, he had to deal with more and more social activities and often had to accompany customers to drink.After xu Zhilin insisted for a few years, he found that his body often has uncomfortable places, often feel dizzy, the number of colds every year also gradually increased, even climb a staircase will be breathless.In the face of these things, he became more and more worried about his physical condition, very distressed about what was wrong with him, so he hurried to the hospital for a physical examination.After xu Zhilin got the examination report, he asked the doctor anxiously: “Doctor, what’s wrong with me?Is it a medical condition?”The doctor replied, “Your body is already in a sub-healthy state, with high blood pressure, high blood lipids and high blood sugar. It’s very dangerous if you don’t change your lifestyle.”Xu also suffers from gout due to years of drinking.What really made Xu decide was a trip with friends: “In the summer of 1998, I weighed 88 kilograms.I made an appointment with my friends to climb Qingcheng Mountain. Before I took two steps, my knee hurt so much that I could not walk.I had to let my friends go up the mountain to play, and I could only drink tea in a tea shop at the foot of Qingcheng Mountain.I was drinking and thinking, is this the best my body can do for the rest of my life?”Xu Zhilin felt that he really can not go on like this, must be in order to do their own health plan.So he began to go to the gym and choose fitness to lose weight.
