Unfit & weak at 40 & award-winning sportsperson at 42: Mayura Amarkant’s health transformation journey

Well, that’s me! I spent a lot of money on weight loss programmes, wasted time and energy in crash diets. Kept hearing people complaining about how one can never lose weight and one will always remain fat. I had zero muscle strength and sub-zero muscle endurance. I still remember the first time I started walking to remain fit – I started panting after 450 m and had to sit down for 15 min to catch my breath. Today, I run marathons, win cricket and throwball tournaments. I am a sports person who has an extremely busy work schedule and a demanding family with kids, husband and in-laws.
