Book Personal Fitness Trainer in Dehradun

Hi, I Am Sameer Khanna. Here’s an insight into my life….

Oye, hanger! Kaha ja raha hai?

Hanger – a common name for extremely lean guys like me. For those who don’t know, a hanger is a shaped piece of wood, metal, or plastic used for hanging clothes.

Yes, I was a hanger in my school days and the reason I’m telling you this fact is that it marks the beginning of my fitness journey at age of 15 when I was in high school.

The Fitness Journey Begins

I stepped into the fitness world to transform myself and shatter the negative opinions of people around me. I was determined…but there was a problem.

I had no money and my family declined to pay for the gym fee and the diet because they felt I won’t grow taller and bodybuilding is bad, the common misconceptions we hear every day.

Therefore, I decided to work as a sales guy every Sunday at a mobile shop to earn Rs 180 a day. In total, I used to earn Rs 720 in a month. Out of this, Rs 400 was for the gym fee and the remaining amount for my diet.

Amidst all these, what kept me going was my determination, the Never Give Up attitude.

Fun Fact: Besides a certified fitness coach, I’m a professional flutist who plays Hindustani Classical Music on the Indian Bamboo Flute.

Lean to Muscular Transformation

The Fitness Career Begins

The fitness journey continued, the transformation was real, and finally…I was no longer a hanger. Years of lifting weight and body conditioning produced results. People appreciated my efforts and now I was more motivated than ever.

I completed my school and now it was time for me to choose my career. For me, fitness was the only option. But for parents, it was not in the picture at all.

I was told to consider engineering, management, law, and other mainstream career options. Meanwhile, I got admission to the Institute of Hotel Management, Catering & Nutrition, Pusa, New Delhi. Reluctantly, my parents gave a nod and I joined the prestigious institution.

But my IHM stint lasted only for 6 months.

My love for fitness brought me back into the arena and now I actually knew what I wanted in life – to become a fitness coach and transform people’s lives physically, mentally, and emotionally.

And I finally started my journey as a fitness coach. As I was already active in the fitness fraternity, I started getting clients. I loved my work and my clients also appreciated my dedication. I trained people in Dehradun, Delhi NCR, and other places in India.

Then, life gave me one more opportunity to prove myself.

The Modeling Career Begins

I stepped into the world of modeling on the insistence of my friends and family. I did some fashion shows and portfolio shoots before enrolling in the most prestigious fashion event of Uttarakhand – Mr. Uttarakhand 2016.

By the grace of God and the blessings of my family & friends, I became the Mr. Uttarakhand 2016 first runner-up. This was the beginning of my short-lived yet illustrious modeling career.

I did portfolio shoots and walked the ramp for famous designers. I got the recognition and limelight in the industry, earned quick money, and made connections.

However, I soon realized the modeling looks jazzy on the outside but there’re a lot of compromises you have to make that may, sometimes, interfere with your self-respect.

Hence, I soon exited and once again, entered into the world of fitness with full vigor and passion.

Taking Fitness to another Level

So although I was already a personal fitness coach having more than 4 years of experience, I realized I need to up my game to become the best in the industry.

That’s when I decided to enroll in some prestigious and relevant courses and programs in fitness, health & nutrition. In due course of time, I earned the following accreditations:

  • Enrolled and studied under the ACE Certified Personal Trainer program
  • Indian Red Cross Society Certification in Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
  • Certified CrossFit training instructor
  • Certified Kettle ball training instructor
  • Certified Functional training instructor
  • Trained in Krav Maga, the world’s deadliest martial art, for 2 years

Besides earning these certifications and achievements, I also participated in powerlifting competitions and became a 3-times Gold medalist at the state level in Uttarakhand.

Undoubtedly these achievements strengthened my position in the fitness industry. Now people recognize me as an experienced and trustworthy personal trainer. They seek my advice in fitness, diet, and nutrition, whether their goal is fat loss, muscle gain, or maintaining optimum fitness levels.
