1. Who are you and how are you into what you do? 

I am Dr. Ruchi Saxena an Orthodontist by profession and Fitness, Lifestyle and Weight Management Coach by passion. I took up an Ace (Personal Trainer) Course and turned into fitness science from being an regular Orthodontist practicing for 16 years.


2. Tell us about your journey..

It all started when I left my job as a consultant with a corporate dental chain owning to back problems. I was advised complete bed rest and pain killers followed by back strengthening exercises. I was asked to leave my sedentary lifestyle and was advocated to take up a more active lifestyle. I gave up on those occasional walks and fad diets and took up gym on my Husbands advice.

I signed up for a personal training routine and my health coach introduced me to various modalities of work outs from cardio to balance to strength training. Gradually I developed a liking towards my sessions and working out in general. Exercise along with a clean diet actually did wonders to my emotional and physical health. My weight training sessions strengthened my bones. Over time, an year and a half to be precise, I was able to achieve an optimum weight, strength and endurance with my fitness regime.

Considering the interest I had developed and on persistence from my trainer, I took up the ACE course and another three months to consider a new career option for myself. At the age of 37 I decided to take up this service profession rendering health.

3. Is Physical & Mental Wellness achievement an easy path to take?

Dr. Ruchi

It’s  a mind game! If you have made up your mind for this then it’s not difficult. A healthy mind resides in a healthy body, and if you are mentally strong nothing is impossible. That’s why we emphasize on both physical and mental well being of our members.

4. Why did you choose fitness training of everything else?

It makes me happy. Nothing is more satisfying than helping people stay fit and healthy. Besides,Exercise I believe is the best remedy to combat  any form of stress considering the kind of lifestyle we follow these days.As a health care provider I feel this is an extension of my services.

5. What role would you have chosen as a career option if not into fitness?

Fitness has always inspired  and made me feel good. I have been working out for past 20 years now! And I know what amazing benefits it has. So fitness is first and of course I am very contented  and happy with my job as an Orthodontist.

6. Difficulties you faced when fulfilling your dreams/aspirations …

Oh ! The list is endless.  But the biggest challenge has been to create awareness about leading a healthy and active lifestyle. Most of the time people associate it with weight loss and once they achieve their goals they forget about it!
But I am happy, gradually people are becoming aware, all thanks to various programs launched by government like “Fit India”.
