Fitness & Women Safety

Over 50 DMs and emails asking me about safety while working out prompted me to do some research and write this one. In this post I talk about women who have taken up the fitness journey encountering harassment, and how  do we deal with it. I’d love know your thoughts too!  There are some personal examples and some examples that my readers shared with me (no names mentioned) Point here is to acknowledge and address harassment. Hope I can make sense to some of you :)  Do you: Avoid going for runs late at night or early in the morning when there are not too many people around? Avoid going to the gym at certain times to avoid running into certain men? Choose your workout clothes that spell MODEST just so that you do not attract eyeballs?

I Doubled My Food Intake To Get A Well Defined Core

This year has been great so far, and as far as the fitness journey is concerned, if you follow me on Instagram you’ll must have realised how I’ve opted for lifting and gains earlier this year.

So does that mean I do not have a hard core anymore? Absolutely not! In fact my core is stronger, and definitely more defined than what it…

Gyms Can Be Intimidating & There Is No Reason To Be Embarrassed About It

If you’re someone who’s just starting their fitness journey, the hardest part is usually not the actual workout, but the fact that you need to step into a gym. Sounds familiar? I am sure it does. There is no reason to feel bad about being scared of the gym, it’s normal. It tends to get intimidating for beginners, a story I share with all of you. I’m taking this opportunity to talk to you about my experience with the gym and working out in general, how I didn’t start out on an ideal note either, and how I’ve come to own MY space in the world of fitness. Rewind to 2012 where I was living on pizzas and whiskey. I got the occasional “look at that double chin” and “you don’t wear dresses, you wear sacks to cover your body” and I was okay with it. It never made me feel…
