From Corporate to Fitness
Her journey started in the corporate world where she worked for some India’s leading names like Times of India and Essar Telecom retail. She spent more than 8 years in climbing the corporate ladder till it came to an abrupt halt due to health problems. She developed sudden health issues including severe migraine, rheumatoid arthritis, hormonal issues, and abnormal weight gain. It was a turning point when her inherent interest in health started to take centerstage. She quit her 9 to 5 job and started taking an active interest in improving her own wellbeing.
Lopamudra’s life took another interesting turn when she was chosen for the Gladrags Mrs. India contest in 2009. The competition introduced her to an intense form of fitness and workout which would later set her on her final vocation. But one of her most precious learnings from that experience came from the people she met. These were women from diverse backgrounds, many of whom had overcome adversity and challenges to reach that stage. These women had defeated their negative circumstances and hardships to reach for the stars. It was a learning experience for Lopamudra who realized that life was much more than a job. It was a journey of self-actualization, a chance to live your own dreams.
A New Beginning
After returning from the contest, she decided to take some time off for herself and finally take up what she loved doing the most. She started focusing on her health and fitness. She began training with an intense workout session every single day. Soon, she had people asking for nutrition and workout advice. In some ways it was the encouragement and validation she needed to strike out on her own. She decided to take it to another level and reach out to others in order to help them achieve a healthy life. With that goal, she completed her first formal certification from Reebok. In the following months she took up the job of educating herself by joining extensive fitness and nutrition courses, eventually getting national and international certifications.
Her journey as a fitness and lifestyle coach ran parallel. From training small groups of ladies in her apartment, she started training batches of 20 to 25 people which included both men and women of different age groups. In 2016, she started her first endeavor. Her company provided customized end-to-end transformation solutions to its clients. This included the entire grooming and well-being of a client, from weight loss, to nutrition, styling, make-up, body language, personal shopping, wardrobe evaluation, and grooming. Her company was awarded in the best Startup category in 2017 by Indo-Global Education Summit & Expo 2017. With a view to narrow down on specialization, she later started World of WOW Fitness. It was a labour of love, born out of deep passion for fitness. It focused on nutrition and fitness, to help people achieve a fit and healthy body they crave for. With this new venture, Lopamudra gets to work on her passion to help women reach their health goals.
Her life took another turn when she moved to Singapore. After an initial period of settling down, Lopamudra was back on the ball, ready to start what she loved doing most, helping others in their journey to wellness. World of WOW Fitness has travelled with her through time and space, ready for a new innings!
