I am Monika Gupta I have won the various titles like Miss J& k twice, Miss North India thrice, Miss India twice and Miss world in 2017 in fitness physique category. My fitness journey started in 2016. I had been suffering from problems associated with obesity like knee pain, back pain, breathlessness etc. My husband Mr Ravinder Gupta who was occasionally making it to gym but he was also suffering from Diabetes and backache and frozen shoulder. We both started looking towards gym as a panacea for our problems. Initially I started with cardio workout but my husband insisted me to start with strength training. I was quite hesitant as those days strength was only male dominated area and there were no females in strength section. But upon his insistence I hesitantly started with strength training. After couple of months after right training and special care of nutrition my problems started fading away and I started getting compliments from people who used to be my critics earlier. Then it occurred to me that when I am giving my 100 percent to the training and dietary discipline, I should pursue this as my career.
My husband was a big support and my hard work and consistency made me a proud achiever of being the first female from the erstwhile State of Jammu and Kashmir to having won so many titles and awards. My husband also felt motivated and won two titles in 2018 one in Mr North India and one in Mr J&K. We feel honoured to be the first and perhaps the only fit couple in J&K UT. The Ortho related problems of my husband are gone and I am please to inform you that my husband who was using insulin 4 times daily is totally off the diabetic medication for about one year as his values have returned to normal. This is not only a passion for us but has become a way of life for us. I would say jo fit hai wo hit hai.
