Mine is a success story of an unlikely transformation. I wasn’t built for fitness and it did not come naturally to me. In spite of the fact that my family is in fitness industry, I had no intention to understand the fitness business. Being fit and maintaining fitness was the last agenda of my life.
My genetic makeup is neither the best for getting a six-pack, nor was I an athlete growing up. Like many people I got carried away living the urban lifestyle and packed on a few extra kilos. I was unhappy about being out of shape. I dreaded the idea of trying new clothes and discovering that nothing fit me.
At some point, I decided to take charge of my health and fitness. I began the relentless journey of dropping the extra weight. I started working out in order to fit into a smaller pair of jeans! I tried fad diets/ fasting/ wasted money on expensive trainers and famous dietitians. It was only when I sat back to contemplate about my lifestyle and paid attention to my body signals that I finally experienced some results.
Eventually, I did lose the extra weight. Everything in my wardrobe was now too big for me and again nothing fit! By this time in my life I had come to realize that I needed to empower myself with proper knowledge.
I became determined to garner the best fitness qualifications and world-class credentials. I voraciously acquired several professional certifications including:
ACE Personal Trainer
Shortcut-to-Size by Jim Stoppani
Gold’s Gym University Certification).
Having experienced all the struggles of trying to get permanently fit, I know what works and what doesn’t. All of this through practical first-hand experience. I also have the experience of working with over 100 clients via one-on-one training and group exercise classes.
Getting it Right
I have been at both extremes of clothes-being-too-small to clothes-being-too-big and what most people don’t realize is that the transformation is actually easy. It might look hard but the limitations are in your mind. Yes, it does require a certain amount of consistency, commitment and discipline. But there is a right-and-easy way to do it.
One may have to say ‘no’ to an extra scoop of ice cream, but it’s alright to snack on your favorite pizza once in a while. The key to your success is adapting yourself for healthier lifestyle changes. Like many people I also have succumbed to trash-dieting and over-training. I have done unhealthy things like regularly going to sleep hungry and then binging every weekend.
With regard to lifestyle in particular, let me say that you can be a vegetarian and still get all your proteins, and build a great body at the same time. I am a vegetarian by choice, and am able to maintain my fitness without making any compromises. Being fit is a process. If you align yourself to the right process you are bound to get the right results.
The Key to Success
My success at getting fit started only when I acknowledged the importance of Right Workout along with Right Nutrition. If you can find the right workout plan and supplement it with right nutrition, you will barely even notice how easily you’re getting fit. My transformation journey has been the easiest, however not the shortest – It takes what it takes.
It is important to recognize that everyone’s body type is unique. And paying attention to your body’s signals is the key to success. The vast majority of people do not comprehend what this means or how to do it. That’s why I take the time to understand my clients’ lifestyle, work, family stressors, and fondness for a particular style of exercise and past workout experiences.
Once I create a client’s profile, I can design a unique program exclusively for them. I also insist that clients substitute dairy and gluten with other appropriate foods, during the transformation.
I have educated myself about fitness and now hold several internationally qualified personal training certifications. I have become an expert in the cutting edge of fitness training.
