I have been a Personal Training & Nutrition coach in Mumbai, India for the last few years and successfully managed to deliver results that the clients expected from me. But I always knew there were many clients out there paying thousands of rupees in personal training and consultations but not getting anything in return except disappointment. This was the trigger that got me to move into the Online Coaching space and thankfully the gift of Internet helps me get access to people across the world who are in search of genuine and practical fitness advice that’s applicable and result oriented.
My reason to be here and share my story with you is because I have actually seen both sides of the coin, living a corporate life v/s living a fitness professional’s life. I have self-experienced the benefits of achieving high levels of fitness and seen how it helps me function physically, mentally and spiritually. A quote from Socrates, the great philosopher summarizes my passion for fitness and explains why I gave up my career in marketing and started pursuing my passion for teaching about health & fitness.

- Pay off – The process coaches you everything about training, nutrition and recovery thereby helping you achieve a strong and aesthetically pleasing physique that not just looks good but also performs well.
Clients who consider themselves as a rank beginner should not use online coaching since you need to spend a minimum of 6 months on the gym floor to work on basics of training. This could include correct posture during exercises, breathing techniques, stance during unsupported and supported movements. Our online coaching videos surely help you with complete guidance/directions on executing the movements, but we still suggest you get some experience under your belt before starting.
