She Believed, She Could, So She Did - Shailaja Kumar Gupta
It’s said, "Life belongs to the energetic". Without a doubt Shailaja is winning in life with the infinite energy that she has. She is one vivacious and energetic person. She has a magnetic persona, and it is difficult to not like her. Her passion towards life and the discipline is awe-inspiring. She hails from an academically inclined family with her father being a retired ACP and mother a retired medical office from GMC, Nagpur. She also went the same way and completed her master’s in computer management and went on to work for organizations like Citibank, Wipro etc before taking a plunge into her passion. She has always been a performer, a go getter with a passion for fitness. The seeds of an active lifestyle were soon in her childhood, when she saw her busy parents taking time for an active lifestyle. However her first push came from her brother, who himself was an athlete. She feels at home when on stage, she has won many pageants like, Miss. Vidarbha, Miss Nagpur and currently a participant of Mrs. India International. She believes in giving back to the community, to infuse fitness as a way if life. She has conducted events like "Women's Walkathon" and "WINGS-2019" to felicitate inspiring weight loss stories and give a platform to her batch girls to showcase their talent. Lets now hear more from her.
1. What service(s) or product(s) do you offer/ manufacture?
I take fitness batches and provide diet consultation. We have transformed many girls in terms of weight-loss, stamina and their overall fitness. We are into overall fitness like Aerobics, Zumba, Weight training, HIIT, Functional, CrossFit and lots of other things.

2. How did you get your idea or concept?
I always had the zeal for fitness and a lot of my friends wanted me to help them in achieving their goal. One of my friend Rashmi persuaded me to start a training program for her and so my journey began. I started with just 4 girls and have by now transformed 300+ girls 😀 and going strong. Its been 5 years of passion and hard work and I see it reflect in my girls.
3. What do the day-to-day responsibilities of the role look like?
Being a fitness trainer and a motivator requires me to be first disciplined about my workout schedule and food habits. It is challenging though, I keep planning and adding variety to my workout plans. I keep changing a lot of things in my workout regime and try to provide my girls with something new and challenging every time. Since I believe in giving individual attention to every girl who comes to my batch. I also try and overhaul their eating habits, to make them a fitness-oriented person with an enhanced lifestyle.
4. What are some of the mistakes you wish you could have avoided?
Not starting early enough. But as they say, "Better late than never". I always had the entrepreneurial streak in me, and I am glad I took the correct steps.
5. Are you happy and what would you change?
YES! I couldn't be happier. I am so satisfied with the way things have progressed. Every session makes me so happy, since I put my heart and soul into it. It gives me immense pleasure to witness the transformation of my girls. Their success stories fill me with pride. I started with a group of girls from Pune, but today have girls from across India, in fact globally that attend my online fitness sessions.
6. A quote you stand by ...
I believe in giving my 100% in whatever I do. I am a very disciplined person in my personal and professional life. I take each day as a new one, while being faithful, worthful and truthful to my lifestyle. Last but not the least, "Your body is the most valuable asset you have, love it, worship it! "
Wow! what an inspiring personality. We all build our lives and careers but helping so many ladies and touching their lives is a blessing. Shailaja is one such blessed soul, you can see the satisfaction that she gets, and that reflects and exudes as peace in her. Discipline looks like the backbone of her life. But let me tell you, the fun person she is. She is highly self-reliant and does most of her chores by herself. Uff! anything that can keep her body in motion, and she is in for it! Attend one of her class and challenge yourself today!
