Women Fitness President Namita Nayyar recently caught up with her to talk about her fitness goals!
You played the violin all the way through high school and began dancing when you were three years old. Later you joined Team Beachbody. Tell us about your journey that took you to the world of fitness and as a fitness expert?
I grew up in a household where fitness was important. My mom took aerobics classes and my dad loved to power lift at the gym. With my background in dance, being healthy and active just made sense and essentially was part of my DNA. When I became a mom pretty early on (22 years old) I made a decision in that moment that I wouldn’t let my daughter be the reason why I am not healthy and rather she would be the reason why I am healthy. I began doing workouts in the living room utilizing the free Denise Austin workout videos that were on LifeTime. I started buying fitness magazines and basically just became the go-to fitness girl to all my friends and family. Later when I joined Team Beachbody it was an easy transition to turn my love for fitness and my passion for education into a full-time career as a fitness professional.
