Can you tell us a little bit more about yourself – background, profession, how long you’ve been active as a fitness model and influencer ?

What’s been your inspiration for getting into fitness ?
Pooja : Well, I always wanted to change myself, but my inspiration was my critics and naysayer who said I can’t do it.
Did you have an athletic background ?
Pooja : Well, I used to compete as a bikini athlete. I also got the title Miss bengaluru, Miss south India fitness, Miss bengaluru beauty.
What about being strong means to you ?
Being strong isn’t about lifting heavier weights than anyone, but for me it’s about getting back when there are so many setbacks, being consistent and overcoming the hurdle of laziness is about being strong for me.” Pooja Shared with Fitnglam Magazine.
What does your training and diet look like in the current season ?
Pooja : Well for me it’s always about sustainability and my diet was never like exotic diets which most of the people follow. I love my ghar ka khana and honestly I didn’t face any issues as it’s just easily available local, seasonal food. And I always say this that your workout shouldn’t be limited to the gym, it should be anywhere anytime not limited to any situation. So basically I am doing no equipment workout routine. We always tell to our clients that workout should make you happy it shouldn’t be a burden it should be fun.
What supplements are you currently taking ?
Pooja : One supplement that’s always with me is whey protein.
What is your favourite cheat Meal ?
Pooja : Cheat Meal well I have a big list, but my most favorite is gulab jamun.
When you’re on holiday at the beach, do you find yourself, like a chef going out for a meal, sizing everyone else up, finding faults, looking for tips, etc?
Pooja : Well when I travel I just try to find the local foods which are either already healthy so that I can try or how I can make local food healthy. I usually look for that.
If you could only take 3 items on a desert island what would they be ?
Pooja : Gulabjamun, balushai, and cakes
