She could still feel fat around her tummy and after the delivery of her second child, she hit the gym and lost a lot of weight but also she became very weak and realised that she was not taking care of her health and not providing her body with the right nutrition. She also hurt her back and took physiotherapy for support.

She introspected that she was only working in the symptoms and not on the cause so she decided to mould her life differently and be stronger from inside out. She was interested in pilates and enrolled for the same. As days passed by, she became more passionate towards pilates and appreciated the importance of health and fitness in life. She decided to become a Pilates teacher and initiated her journey into professional fitness. She studied hard about fitness, human anatomy, nutrition, injuries.

She gained certification in various forms of exercises from International fitness schools and today she is an Elite Trainer of ISSA (International Sports Science Association).In one of her Instagram post, she stated that she suffered from PCOS, but she took control of it and incorporated exercise into her regime.

She provides personal coaching sessions that encourage her clients not to restrict themselves to only dumbells or barbells. She believes in using different methods to make her training more interesting and fun. She believes in innovation for her training and wants her clients to enjoy exercising.

When she takes up a client, she coaches them after a careful assessment of her client’s needs including her physical fitness, overall health, food preferences and routine. She thinks that there is no one size that fits all. You can also check out her website for your own diet counselling. Her story shows that there is no rule that you need to start early, it is your life and the day you decide to take control of it, your life will change for the better.

She was a student of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania and spent three and was a part of the advertising industry for about three and a half years in New York. She observed how people wore active wear there for gyms and also for daily wear. This really hit a chord with her. She felt that India also had a great shift towards health and fitness and the lack of good active wear which was made in India. India’s activewear industry was dominated by international brands which were costly and were not specifically for Indian customers.

When she moved to Delhi, she had the same urge and conducted a full marketing study on the activewear market. She wanted to bridge the gap between high-quality products and affordable price and so was Kica born.

Aneesha has always given fitness importance in life, she played a lot of football while growing up and always been an active person. She focuses on her overall health and not just physical.

Beejal Dhawan-It is never too late to live again

Blog by-Pooja Seth

In India, there is a lot of stereotypes attached to a life of women. There are a certain set of roles that are assigned to women and they are only expected to live by them. Today we are going to look inside Beejal Dhawan’s story and see how she transformed her life with running day by day. Our mind is the seed of our life and all other things are the tree. If we water the seed every day with positivity and willpower, we will get a positive life. Our life is in our mind, our thoughts shape our life

We all know the power of our mind, but even then we don’t apply the full power of our mind.

Beejal was married at the age of  22 and was a mother by the age of 26. She had few complications with her first pregnancy and was advised complete bed rest. Due to this, she put on a lot of weight. At the age of 27, she was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and after 2 years, she was having slip disk. Life has a strange way of making us strong.

When she conceived her second child, she was told to terminate because of a weak back but she decided to deliver the child. Slip disk was affecting her life majorly and she was not able to pick her own baby. It dawned upon her that, it was time to change the way she leads her life and be more active. She decided to take up running and made changes in her diet. In about three months, she lost 30 kg of weight. She was told by her doctor to enter the clinic when she becomes 55 and she entered the clinic when she became 53 kgs. Her doctor mentions to everyone that she has been the best patient so far. The kind of parenting she wanted to give to her children was not possible with the lazy lifestyle she used to live with. She was very shy to run on the tracks and started running in the garden, slowly and steadily she ran for 1-2 hours. Her back problem also started to improve and become better.

The motivation for her to move out of the house has always been her kids and made her a better mother she is today. She met with a group which encouraged her to start running marathons, and she started running but finished it not by running but walking. She aims to finish the marathon and do it only by running.

Her story shows that no injury or health issue is greater than our will to change it. The day we decide to gain victory over our fears, doubts and laziness, We live the best version of ourselves.

 

Kashmira Pednekar-Passion knows no barrier!

Blog by-Pooja Seth

Where there is a will, there is a way, and that is what this rockstar woman shows us. Kashmira Pednekar is a professional footballer and a sports presenter. In India, football is not prepared to be played by girls and girls are not encouraged to play football.It is considered to be a very rough game and many parents are apprehensive about it.

But when you really want something, you work every minute of your life to achieve it and that is what Kashmira teaches us.OfficialhumansofBombay posted an interview with Kashmira in which she stated how she managed to train for football.

She is from a middle-class family and was always interested in sports. She was always among the first person to join for any colony sports event. She always watched football matches with her dad and had an urge to learn football and train in it. But her family could not afford the coaching fees. She kept looking for any women’s team and finally found one. But that was very far away from her home and she really had to travel a lot to reach there. She was determined to train and nothing could stop her from doing this, she decided to go there to train at the cost of anything. She was even ready to walk to there if necessary. She would wake up at 5:30 a.m and change 2 trains with her school bag and used to practice. Eventually, she got the chance to give trials of her dream team Mumbai United and was accepted by them as they saw the potential and passion in her for football. From then, there was no turning back for her. She used to train before and after going to college. Her passion for football was so high that she started to skip college for football and even failed a year. This was a low point in her life but she decided to balance her life. She planned out her day, she studied all night and trained all day.

She got a job at PR Agency but never compromised on her training. She would wake up at 5:30 and go to work and train after coming from job. Her aim in life was to spread the message that girls can be, do anything they want. She wanted to change the notion that girls can’t be goalkeepers or that there is no future for female sportspersons in India.

She proves that girls can kick and kick amazingly in life. Her sheer dedication towards her sport and the will with which she plays is commendable and something we all should learn about. Life is what we make it and she made it her way.Sports can transform your life and teach you the art of living. People make excuses in life but Kashmira  never allowed excuses to come between her dream of playing football.

 

Fitness Wearable Market in India.

Blog by- Anant Bisht.

Due to steep rise in the knowledge and awareness in the field of fitness in past few years, India has seen an increase in demand of wearable that tracks fitness activities. These are devices which track various physical activities such as heart beat and steps travelled; they are the best way to monitor one’s health and activity without paying proper heed to it. Moreover, the results are pretty accurate too. With time, the advancement in the terms of features is no big deal and so is done by all the fitness bands in the market that even track your sleeping statistics.

The better part of the story is that these trackers come in different price ranges, ranging from Rs. 500 to Rs 30,000. So, these products will not cost you much if you want just the basic features.

PICK1

 

Indian Market

Indian market is full of fitness wearable bands from different companies. All of these work perfectly in their basic functions but as you pay more, the precision and features get increased manifolds. Though the market in India did show some great enthusiasm last year by buying around 2.7 million units last year but this number fell greatly this year. To worsen the condition of famous brands, other small brands are joining the market and selling gadgets with similar features at a much smaller price.

 

PICK2

Though MI provides MI band, a reliable and cheap product, the market is still dominated by all the bigger brands out there, namely- Fitbit, Garmin, Misfit and Polar.

PICK3.jpg

Talking about the affordable section in India, GOQii outnumbers every other company in the Indian wearable market. This company has focused deeply on the unique wellness proposition along with personal trainer, lifestyle doctor and health locker available as a subscription. Xiaomi has also found consider success due to its low price with pretty good features and the popularity of the brand.

PICK4.jpg

After watching Xiaomi win over the Indian market, other phone brands such as Honor and Lenovo have stepped in the Indian wearable market too! This poses quite a threat to all the brands out there as the prices are going down due to tough competition. Lenovo has recently launched two of its products, that are- HX03 Cardio and HX03F Spectra in India.

Still, the most famous of all the brands of wearable bands is Fitbit.

 

Fitbit Market in India

PICK5

Fitbit is a California based company which has seen a huge amount of profit in India. It was founded in 2007. This company came in India back in 2015 and since then has built a vigorous network for sale and distribution of goods. It provides products that enable the user to stay in touch with the fitness industry and motivates them by letting them view their daily fitness statistics. Fitbit products are easily available in online as well as offline market. The online market giants such as Flipkart and Amazon have already tied hands with the company. On the other hand, Reliance Digital, Croma, Helios, etc. are the ones which look after the offline sales of the products. According to the company, Fitbit’s devices are sold in more than 1,000 stores in 100 cities across India. Moreover, the plus point about Fitbit is that it provides the products at all price ranges and features according to them.

This company is highly focused on fitness wearable products only; thus it makes pretty precise products (in terms of information provided by the device) as are required and the variety of products offered by them come in all ranges so that a person can buy products according to his needs and budget!

 

Fitness trackers that dominated 2018

  1. Moov Now­- This fitness tracker is light weighted and has a really great battery life but doesn’t come with a screen and has pretty limited features.
  2. Saumsung Gear Fit 2 Pro This watch is pretty expensive but is definitely value for money. It supports iOS as well as Android but lacks an alarm feature and a barometer.
  3. TomTom Spark 3 This watch is great for all the music lovers as it provides phone-less music and provides GPS navigation too. The cons of this product include poor view of the menu and it doesn’t provide sound quality as is expected.
  4. Huawei Band 2 Pro This product comes with an affordable price tag and the results are accurate too! The only disadvantage is that it has a freezing app.
  5. AmazFit Bip This watch is available with a stylish design that would help you enhance your style statement. Although the user interface is little clumsy but manageable.
  6. Garmin Vivosmart 3 This device has a great battery life and a GPS as well as heart monitor but data provided is superficial, it doesn’t have details.
  7. Garmin Vivofit 3 This device has a great battery life and an always on display, which may create problem to some of the users but to most of us, it is really helpful. The disadvantages are that the notifications of the phone aren’t visible and it has a really poor design.
  8. Fitbit Charge 2 This device comes with a big screen and a comfortable strap but lacks GPS as well as the notification displayed is pretty limited.
  9. Fitbit Blaze This fitness tracker has a stunning battery life and has really great fitness features but lacks notification. Moreover, the design may seem a little weird to some of the people.

 

Starting a New Brand

Starting a new brand in this field isn’t advised because no matter what, people barely prefer the new brands of electronics over the older and more trusted ones. The only case when your products will be bought is when you offer a great design, build quality and features at a very low price. This would mean that you will have to really consistent with your products and the profit margin offered will be low. Moreover, the investment required is really huge. I won’t recommend starting this business unless you’ve made your mind and have a great investment ready as well as you’re ready to bear some losses and tiny profits.

Anabolic Steroid market in India.

Blog by- Anant  Bisht.

Whether one likes it or not but anabolic steroids have become an internal part of professional bodybuilding, modeling, movie stars and physique athletes. So, what exactly are anabolic steroids? Anabolic steroids are also known as anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS). They are steroidal androgens containing natural androgens like testosterone as well as synthetic androgens that are structurally related and have similar effects to testosterone. They increase protein within cells, especially in skeletal muscles and increase the growth of facial and body hair and the growth and maintenance of masculine secondary sexual characteristics like muscular body.

picture1

Market Size

Anabolic steroids are banned in various countries and are not freely available and require a prescription. On the other hand, there are some countries including India where steroids are much freely available.

Though anabolic steroids require prescription in India too but a little extra bucks and a friendly relation with a pharmacist can make all the drugs and steroids readily available to you! So, here arises the question- “Who are the potential customers?” The majority of customers in the market comprises of trainers mostly in ‘local gyms’ and gym owners. Though, all the trainers are involved in the market as customers but majority are from local gyms.

Now, moving on to the consumers, they are mostly males between the ages of 16 and 30.  The highest percentage of people using anabolic steroids is in 12th standard; 45% of 12th standard students of urbanized cities use anabolic steroids. Thus, the greatest place to sell them is metropolitan cities.

picture2.jpg

According to a survey, 75% of the anabolic steroid users would prefer to have them even if they reduce their life span. Thus, the customer base is loyal to the companies.

Moreover, anabolic steroids have found their loyal customer base in the Bollywood industry and the modeling industry in India. Since all the models need to keep those muscles good, round and lean for the entire year, they are in a habit of depending on steroids. Apart from models, anabolic steroids have found a prominent place in Bollywood where all the actors pack on perfect sets of muscles as required by the role in the movie in a really short span of time, this is possible only with the help of artificial hormones and anabolic steroids.

To cut short the argument, we can conclude that there is a great market in India for anabolic steroids especially in urbanized cities

Anabolic Steroid Manufacturers

Since the demand for anabolic steroids is constantly increasing, there has been an increase in the number of manufacturers in India, many of which are selling fake products. So, the market is full of manufacturers from all around the globe! Some of the Indian manufacturers that are in the game of anabolic steroids are:-

  1. Abbott India Ltd.
  2. Yana Healthcare Pvt. Ltd.
  3. Shree Venkatesh International Limited
  4. Sun Pharma

picture3.jpg

There are many more and almost every pharmaceuticals that produce major drugs used in operations and for serious diseases. Apart from these, the manufacturers that are more trusted by the people (mostly celebrities, models and rich brats) who would love to invest more and get really genuine products are:-

  1. Alpha Pharma
  2. Bayer
  3. Puro-Labs
  4. Concentrex
  5. Organon
  6. Sciroxx Labs
  7. Signature Pharmaceuticals
  8. Kaipa Pharmaceuticals
  9. Geneza
  10.  British dispensary
  11.  British Dragon
  12.  ElitePharm
  13.  LA Pharma

How to establish Anabolic Steroid Manufacturing Company (Pharmaceutical)

Establishing a Pharmaceutical in India is not a difficult task, you just need to specify what kind of drugs you’re going to manufacture, like Schedule IV drugs stands for steroids and then you can apply for a manufacturing license for those types of drugs. The documents and licenses required to open a pharmaceutical are as follows:-

  1. Drug License No. (D.L.) Number
  2. GST or Goods and Service Tax Registration
  3. Food Safety & Standard Authority of India (FSSAI) (Rs 100 annually for Re-registration)
  4. Trade Mark per product or name: Estimated Expense (Rs4500 (government fees + advocate fees respectively)
  5. Company Registration
  6. Private Limited Company registration: Estimated Expense – Rs8000 to Rs9000.

Owning documents related to drugs license is very important. You need to own a wholesale drug license from local drug control inspector or officer. Registering on GST network will be issued by the tax authorities of India. You need to register with a unique name of your company at the registrar of companies under companies act, 1956 or 2013.

But establish a pharmaceutical isn’t enough; you’ll need experienced chemists who are very careful with and serious about their work. This is so because in order to produce good quality anabolic steroids, the chemists need to be highly educated and careful because a slight mistake may cause harm to the consumer and bring a bad name to the company.  Moreover, purity matters in the game, so if you’re into gray market, drop the plan! You should also sell your products at a competitive price range; since this market is sensitive, products offered at a cheap rate are considered to be of poor purity and quality and those priced too expensive will not be sold either.

Legal Steroid Market

Yes, there are products termed as legal steroids. These products are allegedly claimed to be safe. These products are just mimics of the original anabolic steroids; they are made from natural herbs and ingredients. They provide with a similar effect as the original steroids but are completely safe; they neither harm your liver and kidney nor produce estrogen in the body. So, a PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) isn’t required after using them. They are also much in demand though not as much as anabolic steroids. The market for these products is increasing day by day due to all the harmful effects of steroids because proper dosage and exact effects aren’t known to much people who use and sell it. So, there has been a rise in the number of casualties, making an increased demand in lesser harmful products. Some of the brands which make such products are- Crazy Bulk and Marine Muscles.

Protein Shake Market.

Blog by- Anant

There has been a steep rise in the field of sports, especially fitness lately in India.
The credit goes to the Bollywood and the modeling industry which has been
promoting fit models, actors and actresses. Moreover, there is a huge
requirement of jacked up models and actors which in turn promotes bodybuilding
industry. The sports industry has also played a major role by supporting
bodybuilding and physique competitions. Due to all this, the requirement for
supplements has increased manifolds as it is impossible to achieve the desired
physique without the aid of supplements. Thus, the supplement market has seen
great growth; to be precise; the most demanded supplement is protein shake!

supplements has increased manifolds as it is impossible to achieve the desired
physique without the aid of supplements. Thus, the supplement market has seen
great growth; to be precise; the most demanded supplement is protein shake!

 Market Size

As discussed above the size of the protein shake market is pretty large and is
expected to grow at CAGR of about 20% till 2022 compared to what it was before
2017. This is so because people are getting more and more aware of the health
benefits of the protein shakes.
The market of protein supplements in India is pretty dominant in the southern
region of the country which is greater than 34% of the total protein consumption
in the entire country. There are a great number of consumers in the market and
78% of adolescents of the urbanized areas of India are in the list of daily

consumers of dietary supplements. Thus, we can conclude that there is a huge
market of protein supplements in India.

Protein Manufacturers

There are a lot of protein manufactures around the world who import their
products to India, the dominant ones are ON (Optimum Nutrition), Dymatize,
Muscletech, etc. These brands have well-established their name in India and have
a brand loyalty as much of the people have got great results using their products.
Since these brands are famous in the western part of the world too, so
establishing your own brand’s name against them is a Herculean task!

protein3

 How to establish a Protein Manufacturing Company

This task is pretty tough because it requires one to compete with various other
foreign brands which have already well-established their market! Moreover, the
investment required is quite large too. After all this, if you still manage to get all

the stuff done, you need to give a good reason to the consumers to try out your
brand. Moreover, the pricing of your products should be such that it gives tough
competition to all other foreign brands which are dominating the market.
The protein shakes in India ranges from Rs. 1,000 to approximately 9,000 for 5 lbs.
of protein. Now, you need to find the appropriate price range you want your
products to compete with. General rule is- “More the protein (isolated), more the
price”. There has been a weak hole in the protein supplement industry which can
hinder all the great brands’ sale out there, it is the gray market! If you give your
customers 100% genuine protein with no chemical additives, the amount of your
customer base will definitely increase over time because it is known to all that the
fake products kill the kidneys!
Six Star Nutrition, Muscleblaze, TNC and Vigourfuel are some of the best Indian
protein manufacturing companies but these companies don’t provide a tough
competition to their western counterparts. The Indian brands are used only
because they are cheaper, you will not see any professional athlete using Indian
protein supplements.

protein5

Some of the Indian protein shake brands import all the stuff required for the
protein shake from the foreign and process it, add flavors and enzymes.
The legal work that you need to complete before manufacturing protein is as
follows:-
1. Get your company registered or approved by the Government as Food
Company.
2. You need to get a FSSAI certificate.
3. You need to get a GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) certification which
ensures that the products are being constantly produced and pass the
regular quality measure tests.
4. ISO certification for the company and the product.

 Distributors

Protein distribution is required in India as most of the protein available in the
market is of foreign brands which require importing the products. Now, some of
the trusted distributors in India are:-
1. NEUVERA Wellness Ventures Pvt. Ltd.
2. Bright Commodities
3. Primarc Pecan Retail Private Limited
4. Healthkart
5. ARC Distributors
6. Global Implex
7. Paradise Nutrition
8. Arena Implex
9. 121 World Exports
10. Polar Exim Pvt. Ltd.
11. Kar Enterprises
These were all the trusted distributors in the Indian market. Always make sure
that your protein shake has branding of any one of these distributors. Since the

gray market is increasing rapidly, we need to assure the quality of the food
supplement that we’re having.

Protein Supplement Shops

There has been a great increase in the number of protein supplement shops lately
due to increase in craze of bodybuilding and fitness. Some of the shops which are
pretty famous in the city sell genuine products but most of them are a part of the
gray market.
The fake supplement market chain is referred to as gray market. This market is
not only responsible for bringing a bad name to the fitness and supplement
industry but also killing many of its clients. Some local supplement shops and
pharmacies are offered to sell fake protein supplements where they can have
large amount of profits. These supplements are difficult to identify as they have
almost same packaging with a slight differences but can be verified by visiting the
site of the manufacturer. One should always buy supplements from trusted shops.

protein6

Since the gray market is increasing rapidly, there is great scope of opening
authentic protein supplement shops in the market. These would rapidly attract a
large customer base as the fake products fail to give results. For this, one needs to
get in touch with the authentic distributors of each brand they want to have in
their shop and get all the legal work for opening a supplement store done.
Moreover, this field is great from business point of view as it offers 70-80% profit
margin of the product price.
