Ms. Namita Nayyar: Tell us about your journey that took you to the top of the world of fitness training ?
Ms. Alexa Towersey: My journey in the health and fitness industry has spanned over 15 years to date, and continues to evolve. I started on a mission for muscles in my teens to escape my “Alexa Annorexa” nickname at school, progressing to body double roles for top American fitness models with an emphasis on the aesthetic element of fitness. I then embraced a new challenge in learning a new sport and qualifying for the world half ironman champs where there is a big emphasis on psychological strength. Following the loss of both of my parents to lifestyle related diseases, has me now more than ever, committed to helping others understand and embrace being fit, healthy and educated. At this moment in time, I’m so grateful that I’m in a place where I’m surrounded by positive people, where I’m consistently inspired to be better.
