Women Fitness President, Namita Nayyar, talks to the personal trainer about her fitness and diet secrets.
You grew up in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area of Pennsylvania. You have been interested in fitness and sports from an early age of 12 years. Later you were encouraged & motivated to compete in fitness competitions. You reached the pinnacle of success by winning at the 2007 NPC San Jose Fitness (Class B), 1st place at 2015 Subfighter No Gi Summer Challenge and many more. Tell us about your journey that took you to the world of fitness and as a winner in Professional Bikini Pro competitions?
I absolutely loved gymnastics when I was a kid and looked forward to practice every day. When I graduated from high school, I still had that drive to compete. I then discovered fitness competitions and began to work on my physique. When Figure and Bikini shows began, the number of Fitness competitors decreased dramatically. Also, I felt that the physique round was too much muscle for my frame in Figure and Fitness. I was encouraged to try Bikini, and it wasn’t long before I received my pro card. I loved competing and would enter 4-6 show in a year. I stayed close to contest shape year round which allowed me to compete often. I earned a place in the top five at the Dallas Europa Show.
I recently have solely been competing in jiu jitsu tournaments, since training for a skill is more challenging and fun for me. I still compete enjoy competing often as I have done anywhere form 4-8 tournaments in a year since I’ve started.
How has your educational background of Bachelor of Science in Education for Biology, Bloomsburg University – Cum Laude, ACE Certified Health Coach – NCAA Accredited Certification and ACE Certified Personal Trainer – NCAA Accredited Certification has been a catalyst in becoming a successful fitness expert?
They all have been a major factor in contributing towards my expertise, along with my own personal experience in training and competing. I taught high school for 7 years, and 4 of them included teaching Anatomy & Physiology which covers all aspects of the human body in great detail. It allows me to pass along knowledge to my clients about their overall health and not only exercise. My degree also provides much more detail about nutrition and how it used in the body for optimal health. I continually take continuing education credits to be of the best service possible to my clients. I’m currently studying for a new certification in Orthopedic Exercise. I also practice what I preach to be an accurate role model in the fitness industry and to my clients.
