Please tell us about sporting events you have taken part in or have coming up.
Fitness has always been close to my heart and women’s health became a priority when I had kids, I realised I needed to teach them to eat properly and keep healthy. Recently, I was also part of a fundraising class for AIDS Lifecycle where I took part in a 7-day bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise money and awareness for the fight against HIV/AIDS. My aim is to reach out to more and more women on the importance of staying healthy.
Tell us about your journey to fitness? Where did it all start?
Suffering from epilepsy put me in a taboo zone for sports but exercise and pushing my body against all odds excited me, so I began to pursue fitness training after completing a Masters Degree in Child Development. The more I learned, the greater my fascination for the human body became.
What are your training goals now?
Incorporating variety in training to keep the body guessing and of course stretching which is the most neglected aspect of training and the primary cause of pain and injury.
Women Fitness was launched in the year 2000 when there was a lack of quality content for women on health, fitness, diet, pregnancy, beauty care, yoga all at one stop. Now we are on the look out for involving top women celebrities to encourage more and more women to take up fitness as a part of their lifestyle.
