Training under Dr.Sheela Nambiar is not like attending any other fitness program. The schedule is structured, supervised and tailor made for each individual. The one aspect of fitness that has influenced me the most is weight training.My body has become stronger and more toned. It has helped me lose weight and sustain it over 8 years.
Rather than just completing a set of exercises Dr.Nambiar always insists on a proper
“Form” of each repetition of exercise, so chances of injury are minimal. After a few one-on-one sessions with Dr.Nambiar, I Was able to concentrate on my problem areas – my knees and low back, and strengthen the concerned muscles. Thus I am able to enjoy the Step and Floor Aerobic classes better. With the Power Stretch & Yoga classes my flexibility and balance have improved. Now I am doing activities that I missed out in childhood, like trekking and cycling.
The various workshops we have had on diet, mindful eating, self esteem & self awareness have helped me focus on my inner wellbeing as well. Worries and stresses have only increased with advancing age, but I have learnt to deal with them better. Relationships with family and friends have improved, and my blood pressure is well controlled.
This is the true meaning of “Holistic Fitness” Dr.Nambiar always stresses, it is not enough to be just physically fit.
Training in a group at TFL, we motivate each other. The source of inspiration for all of us is Dr. Nambiar. Her dedication towards fitness and her passion to empower women to take control over their bodies and minds is truly awe inspiring!
I am deeply grateful to Dr. Sheela for being a true saviour in my life and for giving us TFL in a small town like Ooty.
