Interviewed by The Success Today – A Digital Webzine
𝗧𝗲𝗹𝗹 𝘂𝘀 𝗮 𝗯𝗶𝘁 𝗮𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗯𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀.
I come from a humble Kodova family based in Bangalore. My dad served in the Indian army while my mom ran a beauty salon.
I have always felt a little lost and unsure about my future, but also had the hunger to make something out of my life. I have put my hands on various professions from DJing to modelling and acting to working in various corporates, Public Relations, and Films before I truly devoted myself to Health & Fitness.
My company T99 FITNESS, is the first model of its kind in India. We don’t function as a typical gym, we offer various online and offline subscriptions that provide a one-stop solution for all health & fitness needs regardless of one’s age. Our range of services is extensive and not just limited to a gym membership but also provide online, virtual and freelance coaching, home training, consultations, Education on right Nutrition and wellness, disease prevention, Rehabilitation, Transformation programs to help people motivate to work and stressed individuals find an adaptive way to lead a productive and active life.

My early interest in modelling and acting got me hooked on fitness as it was a big asset to have a good physique to get into the field. However, my experience back then, in most gyms and fitness centres, was quite upsetting. I was quick to observe that every other gym in India has a pattern of running the business where people are advised to depend on supplements and personal training to get good results.
But what got me curious and furious, was that most gym trainers who recommend these supplements and personal training were not even certified in their field. It was a chaotic world to me where fitness was always promoted by massive bodybuilders putting the negative impression to a regular individual that gym and fitness are all about getting big and muscular.
I have always dreamt of a place that welcomes kids and adults to respect and appreciate the importance of health and fitness, a place that spreads the most positive vibes and motivation to everyone. A place that is for all ages and especially a place that has a culture.
It was then when I realised that there is a lot of potential in our country in this field but not many are doing it right. Ergo, I decided to study fitness science and work on a model that would create this world that I had created in my head about how a gym should be.

Our subscription options are vast. We planned our services to work as an obstacle solution provider for every working individual who finds it challenging to make time for health and fitness.
Our services vary from different forms of fitness for those who wish to join our centre to many more adaptive training options for those who cannot make it to our gym physically. We also provide virtual sessions and freelance home training along with lifestyle structuring and nutritional and disease management consultation via healthy food and supplementation for those with health and medical issues. The biggest benefits for our customers with our subscriptions are that they can choose if they wish to continue their health and fitness journey at the comfort of their home or outdoors or at a physical space of their choice. Health and wellness could never get this accessible and flexible for our customers.

This is the easiest and shortest answer I can give. The sheer satisfaction we receive when we see our customers happy and thankful for making their day with great service is what makes me hungry to strive for more and give our people nothing but the best.

The one thing I learned in life that has helped me reach where I am today is a very simple theory.
People may never understand what you are up to at times and may end up suggesting what you must do with your life.
But as long as you have a vision and work towards mastering your field and never lose your passion towards it while continuing to work with your heart every single day of your life, you will eventually realize that you are only bound by time and effort until you experience what success really feels like.
