Inspirational Fitness Journey | Shreejith Nair

In this age of Instagram, there are numerous profiles which claim to offer advice and online training for those needing assistance in changing their lifestyle from their diet to assistance in exercising. One such profile that I came across a while ago was Train with Nair run by Shreejith Nair and I was quite impressed with his story and requested him to do a guest post.

Hello, I am Shreejith Nair. Today people know me as a fitness enthusiast; American Council on Exercise (ACE) certified personal trainer and an ACE certified Lifestyle & Weight Management Consultant.

But not too long ago I used to be a chubby guy with low self-esteem. I was born with a clubfoot. Walking was challenging, and to run like normal kids was far from my imagination. All I wanted was to be able to walk like a normal kid. So I had a special shoe designed for my needs. Growing up was hard. To see the other kids run around and to realize I could never do it was very disheartening. However, I didn’t let that bring me down. At age 12, I gathered all the courage and decided to give Lawn tennis a shot. Now you may ask, how can a kid who can barely walk play tennis??

I always strongly believed in the cliché – ‘Your body hears everything your mind says’.

I took baby steps, sure they were painful but I did not give up. A year later I played my first tournament and limped my way to the 3rd round. I felt like I was on top of the world! At 15, I underwent a surgery to correct my clubfoot. The surgery was successful and had me wearing normal shoes. But it’s during the recovery period that I picked up unhealthy eating practices. I went from being 70kgs to a unhealthy 108kg slob.

Due to my unhealthy practices I developed supra ventricular tachycardia (Irregular heartbeat). This is when I decided that things had to change. I took control. I started working out and followed a healthy diet. I saw my body transform. I got addicted to seeing results. It was an incredible feeling. Now I understand why my career as a game developer did not excite me. I had found my true passion.

                                    

My passion to guide & support clients toward their fitness goals is driven by the enjoyment of seeing them reap the benefits. From losing weight, feeling less stressed, to being happier & healthier. When I hear these wonderful results I feel like I am doing what I was meant to be doing. So it keeps me on top of my game, whereby, I want to strive to give the best service as possible.

“I believe exercise is so much more than simply an activity – it opens up a world of possibilities that are entirely up to the individual”

Exercise builds confidence and happiness, especially as you reach your goals and see your own progress. In my training I strongly believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ technique, instead each client gets their own unique program that fits them and their needs.

I am here to help in any way I can so that you reach your fitness goals and exceed your expectations. You’ll have a coach you are accountable to, someone that will help, and guide you through this next level of your fitness journey.

    Yes, I came across his profile on insta couple of days back. And was shocked to see the contrast in his pictures. With healthy routine, regular exercising we can change so much, bring positivity, confidence.

    Thanks for the post Rohini and thanks to Shreejith for telling and inspiring us.

    I enrolled myself for his program for my postpartum diet. I was specific and asked him if he has experience dealing with postpartum women and he said a lot of his clients were postpartum and he is experienced.
    After my joining, I was sent a diet chart and was given access to a app, the diet looked like a regular diet we find online and didn’t look like any customization was added for me. Specifically, I was breastfeeding.
    Giving him a benefit of doubt, I asked him very politely, what are the points that were considered while making this diet keeping in mind my PP. he said the diet is rolled out with best of his knowledge and still didn’t answer my question. I asked him yet again, what according to his knowledge should be considered when making a diet plan for women in PP. he said these question is making the environment negative and all I have to follow is just what he says. While the questions were asked to make myself involved and trust that plan which in turn will motivate me to stick on the diet but he wasn’t able to answer any of my questions and I understood his programs were subservience & definitely gave an understanding that he had ZERO experience in dealing with women in PP.
    Also, it was a 3 month plan and when I asked him to refund, he curtly told me he doesn’t refund and was quick enough to block me in Instagram, the app and the mail. He didn’t want to get exposed which is why the next minute he said it I was blocked while he still has my money. This happened around 5th day of joining the program, so technically he took my money for doing nothing, JUST NOTHING.
    This person and his program is nothing less scam. And his RUDENESS from day 1 as if he is doing the service for free. I am talking time to put this in writing so no one else gets cheated like I did.
