How important is health, fitness, eating right and looking good?

Health, fitness, eating right and looking good are very important to me. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, which encompasses all those areas have been a mantra of my life since age 12. My goal is to lead a healthy life and in doing so, help others attain their fitness goals.

Health is my number one reason for accomplishing the goals I have attained thus far. Without good health, my dreams will not become a reality. Being healthy allows me to remain focused on my goals. Having good health also gives me mental clarity and physical strength in my daily tasks and workout routines. Being one who is aware of the importance of health and its effect on my well-being, I strive each day to eat a balanced diet; rich in nutrients, coupled with a four-day- a-week workout regimen.

Fitness plays a very important role in my daily life. As a Competitive Sport Enthusiast, it is important for me to be in the best shape at all times. And as a certified personal trainer, physique competitor, power lifter and fitness model, fitness plays an integral part in my competitions. It determines my capability of winning.
