An Investment Banker puts #HerHealthFirst for Her Daughter


December 28, 2021

Being a mother is a full-time job and managing a real job while being a single mother requires the skills of a superwoman.

I’m an investment banker and mother to an adorable 5-year-old. Here is my story of why I put my health first to put her (my daughter’s) health first.

Like every mother, I started out on my journey to become healthier after my daughter was born. It is very important to lead by example since our children mirror what we do as they grow up. With a history of hereditary health conditions on both sides of the family, one tends to worry about the future. My only aim was to lead a healthy life so that my daughter follows in my stead.

The Beginning

Gauri at the gym

My only ‘bad’ habit was going to the gym and working out every single day. I did see some change in my weight, but my sessions at the gym after a long day at the office would leave me feeling drained out and tired. Little did I realise that the sudden drop in weight was taking a toll on how I look physically. That’s when I set out on the quest to set this right.

I like to keep myself updated with all the current trends. While browsing through one such lifestyle magazine I stumbled across HealthifyMe, and then the rest was history. I am so glad to have founded coaches like Sreemanth and Sapna.

The Connect

It just took me one phone call with Sreemanth and I knew that he was the fitness coach I was looking for. He suggested workout routines that my body required at that point in time. It helped me gain weight and tone up. I felt proud to have a fitness coach like Sreemanth, because my workout buddies would always compliment me on my workouts and tell me how I “Was a delight to watch”.

Getting Sapna as a diet coach was the best thing that happened to us. How often does one get a diet plan that caters to the entire family? I just had to mention it to her once and she took care of both our diet needs. What surprised me was that she had a diet that helped me get better when I was down with an upset stomach. She knows what she is doing, and that kept me going back to her.

The Change

40 days with Sreemanth and Sapna was all it took for me, to start experiencing changes. Apart from all the compliments I was receiving, I noticed the change myself. I started feeling and looking healthier. What made me feel good about myself was the fact that there was no more fatigue to complain about. All thanks to the fitness routine and diet that was prescribed to me.

All thanks to my awesome coaches, I wake up every day and work towards being better than what I was yesterday. This lifestyle change has come as a blessing to me. Now I am confident about my daughter having a confident future.

“I always refer to Gauri as Wonder Woman or Super Woman on all our In-App chats, because she is! She takes me also by surprise. I have never seen anybody perform the workout routines I give her with such stamina and perfection, and mind you these are advanced level routines. I am lost for words when it comes to her strength. What I like most about her is the fact that she is very, honest when it comes to workouts, irrespective of whether she has done them or not. Kudos to her enthusiasm!” – Sreemanth Desai, Fitness Coach

“I have never seen anyone with her dedication and passion. She has done a commendable job to stay in shape even after having a baby. What impressed me was the faith she had in the diet plans I used to give her, although she was very knowledgeable herself. Talking to her is always a delight.” – Sapna Sangtani, Nutrition Coach
