Getting straight to your fitness journey
What brought you to fitness? How did you start working out?
I was never bothered with my looks / my weight, though people used to humiliate me at times because of my weight. I joined gym initially because I had some free time at my disposal and nothing but when I started noticing changes not just in my physique but also in my personality, it became an addiction.
Workout is discipline, it gives me energy and strength. The confidence I have now is incomparable.
Now my fitness goal is to get stronger and gain lean muscle.
What motivates you?
If I look back where I started and see where I am now it motivates me a lot. It’s phenomenal as per my opinion. I’m healthy and I have gained knowledge over workouts and diet.
I always keep track of my pics and compare over the time to see how far I have come.
– Improper nutrition plan given by trainers
– Improper workout plan
– More amount of cardio and less weight training : This is completely wrong.
Many people are under the impression that weight training makes women bulky and muscular which is absolutely wrong.
The above factors had a negative effect on my health initially when I started workout. Over the time I have learnt what is good and what is not. Now I follow my own workout program as per my goal.
Everyone must understand that no trainer can ever understand your body like you do.
You must know your strengths and weaknesses and then workout accordingly.

Anything you would want to share with everyone?

Never give up, no matter what.
Always look back where you started and why you started.
Keep smiling and rock your goals.
