Fitness is not a Destination; it is a Lifestyle

In our today’s success story, we have Shahid U. Rehman and his transformation journey. We found his fitness struggle quite inspiring and we decided to share with our readers.

 

 

“I always wanted to have an active lifestyle and athletic body, but didn’t get an opportunity to transform this desire into reality. However, the spark did not die inside me and kept smoldering into my heart. Two years ago, I decided to materialize this dream by joining the gymnasium at Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS). The passion to get an athletic body helped me to undergo a rigorous and tough training program under the supervision of my trainer Mr. Muhammad Shakeel. I firmly followed a workout and diet plan for three months. The consistent exercises and healthy eating habits resulted in a considerable weight/fat loss. Incredibly, I jumped from 216 pounds – 166 pounds in short span of 12 weeks. Right after three months from the day I started training, I had an athletic body which was full of strength and void of unnecessary muscle mass. The Dream comes true! My success of revamping my fitness lifestyle revolves around the four important factors, which are: Discipline, Consistency, Hard work, and Healthy balanced diet. Indisputably, these factors have contributed in swift improvement of my lifestyle, body strength, and cardiovascular health. Moreover, now I am aware of all my body needs.

This transformation was a turning point and paved my future as fitness enthusiast. I joined LUMS Shredded Club as a fitness trainer and helped LUMS community to achieve their fitness goals by organizing HIIT, Cross fit, and weight training sessions. As a token of appreciation, I bagged the most prestigious fitness title of Mr. LUMS (J) 2019 and silver medal in annual LUMS marathon race.

Continuing my passion for fitness, I received an international certification in nutrition and fitness training from University of Colorado, USA. Afterwards, I started online personalized trainings and consultations as a certified fitness trainer. I helped a lot of people to transform their unhealthy routinue to active lifestyle. My fitness plans are very flexible considering one’s diet habits and activity level. Devising fitness plans, I have a realistic approach for everyone like if one is a corporate professional or staying at home or hostel. From my clients, I always receive wonderful response, and their progress is fantastic. Currently, I’m working on my online fitness club “MAGNETS” aiming to transform people’s life towards healthy, energetic, more dynamic, and maintainable lifestyle. Also, I have registered for International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) Personal Trainer Certification, a more advanced certification in the field of fitness world.

Beside this fitness world, I’m also doing a full time corporate job and executing a collaborative recycling project “biomass ash conversion into commercialized concrete and fertilizer products” of Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), Bulleh Shah Packaging (Pvt) Limited Group and Higher Commission of Pakistan. This is another success story of my life.” – Shahid

on

The world’s largest Ayurveda Wellness chain opened its 98th international store with the opening of an exclusive Wellness Boutique at Defense Housing Society’s Bukhari Commercial Area located in the heart of the city of Karachi.

Speaking at the sumptuous launch, master franchisee and Spa Ceylon Pakistan’s CEO Saeeda Mandviwalla, said, It gives me great pleasure to be able to bring Spa Ceylon to Pakistan because for me it is more than just a brand; it is a brand affiliated with my heritage & identity. Being from Sri Lanka originally, it is with pride that I bring a piece from my birthplace to my current home; and the benefits of this brand will be felt by all age groups of the population.”

Spa Ceylon now produces over 500 all-natural Ayurveda inspired personal care, wellness, make-up and home aroma products. The complete range comprises prestige skin, body, bath, scalp and hair care preparations, oils, balms and potions, colour cosmetics, home aroma blends, candles, diffusers, incense, herbal infusions and gourmet teas, handmade stoneware, bath accessories and a range of tropical resort wear.

Attending the opening, the co-founder director Shalin Balasuriya explained, “The continued growth of the international wellness market to over US$ 4.2 trillion signals a strong shift in consumer preferences towards wellness. Spa Ceylon occupies a unique lifestyle space where personal care meets wellness. Given its brand attributes of high-performance authentic formulations, Ayurveda origins, environmental activism and ethical sourcing, it will continue to resonate with the modern consumer to drive further growth. I have spent the past few days in Karachi meeting industry professionals, media & consumers that reviewed the range & am delighted by their overall response to Spa Ceylon, from packaging to product quality & functionality, giving us confidence that the store roll-out in Pakistan will be a great success.”

 

Also attending the glamorous event was H.E. Mr. Noordeen Mohamed Shaheid the High Commissioner of Sri Lanka to Pakistan. “There is a great sense of pride in seeing this esteemed Sri Lankan brand bring its presence to Pakistan, and through its success, we can only see strengthened trade relations between the two nations.”

 

Noor Mandviwalla, the young Executive Director of Spa Ceylon, Pakistan, said, “Spa Ceylon’s brand philosophy greatly resonates with me because of its unique emphasis on natural beauty & wellness. Beauty is no longer focused on making people meet a particular standard of the way one should look; rather, it now looks towards highlighting one’s natural beauty, on the outside as well as within. This is why I feel that this brand is truly revolutionary in its take on beauty care and wellness; using the principles of Ayurveda to live a fuller & healthier life.”
