1. Why did you decide to enter the fitness industry?
After delivering 2 boys as any other woman tried to cut down on that extra fat on my body. Tried all kinds of yo yo diets, paid a good amount of money to the so called dieticians. Kept on going through the same circle of loosing few kilos on scale, and as soon as quitted the diet, went back to square one.
Finally planned to give up all diets, started exercising and eating a balanced diet, which could be followed life long. I saw such awesome changes in my body, not only in terms of fat loss, but also in terms of strength, stamina, agility, power.
I became a happier soul, more confident. So decided that if can share my experience with all those men and women who are struggling for years to lose fat in a right way, so that it never comes back, would be a great achievement for me.
Hence totally dedicated myself to promoting health and fitness.
2. What are your specialties as a fitness professional?
I've done my group certification with Reebok.
I've done my Personal Training certification with AMERICAN COUNCIL ON EXERCISE.
I'm certified in Pilates, Kickboxing, and Prenatal and Postnatal workouts.
I've done workshops in TRX AND BOSU workouts.
I'm a certified nutritionist by BFY MUMBAI.
People ask me WHERE ARE THE MACHINES IN YOUR GYM.
3. What's a great piece of advise that you've given to a client?
I see a lot of excellent and certified fitness coaches here in India. But what I have realized is that what we need as per the times is Fitness motivators.
We have to train the brain before training any other muscle group. People give it up very fast, everyone is looking for a short cut.
4. Can you please share any major mistakes that fitness professionals make?
My piece of advice to my clients and every one reading this is that take care of your body.
Just give 30 minutes 5 days a week to yourself.
SEE THE DIFFERENCE IN YOURSELF, FAT LOSS WILL BE THE ICING ON THE CAKE.
5. Where do you see yourself professionally in the next five and ten years from now?
Few year from now I see people following what I try to enforce today;
FAT LOSS IS NOT A ONE DAY, ONE MONTH OR ONE YEAR PROJECT,
It's a LIFESTYLE CHANGE.
