This is why I teach Fitness & Wellness
On returning from my post-graduation to work at my family-run hospital in Ooty, in
1994, I believed, if there was a condition where one may slowly and silently perish from isolation and a suppression of creative energy… this was it! I lived within the four walls of my home and hospital, working endlessly. That was all I did.
Of course, I felt plenty of self-pity for my ‘hard-working’ self. Felt very self-righteous actually! I thought, ‘Life is unfair. I am meant do bigger things!’.
From this came an opportunity to create something powerful and rewarding in ‘small town Ooty’ over and beyond my Obstetric practice. I nurtured my passion for fitness and
certified as a Fitness & Lifestyle Consultant to support my medical career, propagating fitness to women as a form of ‘Preventive Medicine’. I started ‘TFL’ (Training for Life’) in
Ooty in 2000 and in Chennai in 2007. It became an extension of my medical practice. One that I believe to be very relevant to women’s health and wellness and also enriched patients, clients and women across the board, from all walks of life.
Today, I am appreciative that I am able to translate my passion for fitness to touch and change women’s lives. Am ecstatic to see my alternate career lead to a metamorphosis in
several women who have benefitted from TFL, leading to an incredible improvement in their ‘Quality Of Life’.
‘Connecting the dots’, I believe this is what I was meant to do……….change lives.
You most certainly have changed MY life for the better and for that, I will always be grateful. 💝

Am glad for that!!
You have not only changed lives, you have transformed my life and have taken it to a different level, which could not have been possible if it wasn’t for TFL and the guidance from you on various aspects of fitness and the food groups and food requirement by each one. Only in TFL I understood no two ppl have the same food requirement each body is different, our requirements vary. Thanks sheela for your guidance in every aspect of my health and fitness. Love you, your dedication, your work among women and love TFL!!
