Her Approach: Mind-Body Fitness for Life

Anjali is firm in her belief that fitness programs and workouts need to be customised for every individual.

She finds an approach of following current popular workouts or exercising to extreme limits or beyond ones’ capabilities as being detrimental and short-sighted.


Functional Fitness forms the basis of all her teaching in varied programs such as
Strength & Conditioning | Muscular Endurance & Fat-burning | Posture | Coordination | Balance | Agility 

Done with a mind-body focus functional training results in strong, mindful, and energised movements in

  • Daily Living (climbing stairs, playing with your children, driving, lifting etc),

  • Sport, Exercise, Outdoor Activities, and more.

His Fitness Philosophy

Sharat believes that fitness for each individual should be based on specificity and functionality, keeping in mind goals, needs and concerns of every individual.

He finds the generalized ‘one-size-fits-all’ training approach to be ineffective and harmful to a persons’ long-term health and fitness.
