Case 1 – Hard working girl who just needed a push to show up for a workout everyday.
January 04, 2019, I was busy with my regular day at home when I got a message from Alina at around 8pm on my Whatsapp, asking if I Personal Train. She had checked out my YouTube Channel Indian FemFit and had seen me working out sometimes at the gym. I was in the middle of deciding to go on with my Mrs. India participation which was scheduled in March/ April then or follow my passion on the way to Fitness. Not able to decide, I informed her that I do not Personal Train as of now, however I am okay to help her. Little curious I asked her about her Fitness Goals.
Alina’s Introduction-Name- Alina Ferro
Occupation– Student in last semester of college, going to join job soon
Case details- Alina weighed 89 kgs back in 2017 and she worked super hard to get herself to 69 kgs. She was already training with a Personal Trainer for a year and had to discontinue due to her College’s schedule. When she approached me, she had already gained some weight, was not able to show up for workouts on her own despite the fact that she had seen her transformation happening in last year and confessed that if she had a Trainer to push her to show up for workouts daily, she would be a lot more disciplined to follow her Fitness Goals.
Insight- we all get so used to our daily schedule, home – college – office, that we keep on delaying or ignoring the health and fitness prospectives despite knowing how important it is. At this time, we all need a little push or a companion who can drag us to workout or help keeping us on track everyday. This happens with all of us at some point in time.
In next two months I figured out that Fitness is my destination and I should follow it. Got an opportunity to get certified from one of the Top Bollywood Trainers, Mr. Satyajit Chaurasia, I was ready to take up my new job of a Fitness Coach and I was happy that my passion was taking shape as my career. I started freelancing as a team member Mr. Satyajit, who then did permit me to go ahead and train anyone who needs.

March 18, 2019 – I contacted Alina back, sceptical she might have found someone already. She insisted on a late evening session thinking I might say no to early morning, after a long discussion, we fixed to have our first session at 6:30 am.
1st Month of Training Alina-
The 1st month in The Journey To Fitness. This is the time when one might have to push himself, push to stick to the routine- to show up and while training give their 100%.
As a trainer too it’s the most important. From 1st to 5th or 6th session, a trainer has to keep a close watch on what kind of training would work. Alina on her part had amazed me with her commitment. She was dedicated and pushing herself to the maximum during training. From 1st to 4th session, I gauged what level of workouts she would be able to do well. And there we go, 1st month mostly sticking to working on Body Strength, Body Conditioning and High Intensity, we were going Strong.
One month went well. I must say Alina was no less than a pro. She would show up every morning, giving her 100% to workout and would rush to college. As she was already into healthy eating habits, I still regulated her diet and guided her on portion size just to make sure everything works in our favour. The days we won’t train together, I would help her with basic workouts which she could do on her own if she finds time.
After a month of hard work, second month was little irregular. Alina was just finishing her college, so her exams and job interviews kept her occupied. And third month, we started again, this time it worked and finally we saw weight and inch numbers changing. She had come down almost 3 kgs and lost inches too. The area we had to focus for the coming month was Legs. I was sure the stubborn fat was not ready to leave. The focus of the workout in the fourth month was to get results on that stubborn fat. With some changes in approach, we finally got results. She had lost 1.5 inches from her thighs (target area) and her clothes were fitting well. In addition her neck and face got sharper too.
Alina has started her new job now and since she has to leave home early, we have shifted our workouts from 7:30 am to 5:00 am. Sometimes we face hurdles too, like work commitments, weather conditions or health issues, one thing is consistent – 100% dedication. We are determined to show up for every class and give our everything in that one hour.
Hope Alina reaches her Fitness Goals soon and finds new Fitness Goals in this journey itself.
