Unlock Your Potential with Our Network of Professionals and Resources Worldwide!
I'd like to thank Ms. Vani Pahwa to consent for the interview with the Health and Fitness India network. Our Q&A are as follows:
I have been an Indian Classical dancer since childhood and always been a physically active person. My passion for dance and physical activity always ran parallel to my career in IT. A couple of bad injuries, being told more cons than pros by "experts" led me to begin my study of the field of anatomy and fitness in detail. It was a natural culmination of my desire to beat the odds and be better informed. I guess my ability to do this for myself lead me to offer it in an effective manner to those around and here I am. Still learning and growing...

3. What's a great piece of advise that you've given to a client?
It's for the client to say how great they feel my advise is :D
But I do tell most of them at some point or the other, "Whether you think you can, or you think can't, you are right". Everything one does is successful to the extent the mind and body are in sync. This holds true for just about anything and not limited to "holistic workouts".
4. Can you please share any major mistakes that fitness professionals make?
I think one of the major mistakes that any fitness professional can make is to think one size fits all. The human body is a complex thing and should be treated with respect. The value of continued education and keeping up with research in the field cannot be over estimated. Bring knowledge and integrity in what you do. Always be willing to learn . Experience cannot be short circuited. Learn and respect the fact that "fitness" means different things to different people.
5. Where do you see yourself professionally in the next five and ten years from now?
Learning and always reinventing myself and bringing all of that to my clients. Using my growing personal experiences to keep presenting evolving and more mature health and fitness solutions.
