“Why are you working in the fitness industry when you have an engineering degree?”, this was the question asked to me by almost everyone 2 years ago. Now they ask “Omkar, how can I start my career in the fitness industry?”
My answer to that is one word – “K11”.
In my career the word ‘K11’ stands for excellence, righteousness, ethics, skill and pure science.
Being an engineering student, I completed the personal trainer’s course(P.T.) and the sports nutritionist course (S.N.C) from K11. These courses made me fall in love with science. I started applying this science on myself and my friends, the results were amazing.
In 2013, Handling my first personal training client was very easy for me because the PT course taught me Practical training. My clientele grew within months due to word of mouth and soon all my Personal training slots were full.
The sports nutrition course enabled me to design nutrition plans. As I had college to attend I was working part time and earned way more than an average engineer.
I revalidated my certificates from K11 as knowledge evolves after every 2 years and the skilled teachers at K11 are always updated with latest, most scientific knowledge.
In 2016 I got awarded the Master Trainer’s Course, A course that I always dreamt of. This course is taught by the grandmaster, Kaizzad Sir himself. Since the advent of this course my life is improving in every aspect: physical, financial, intellectual and emotional.
In 2017 I started my enterprise ‘Omfit’ to help people online and offline in their fitness journey. Online consultations became possible because of the K11 PT and SNC manuals which I can always refer in all cases. These manuals are a bank of knowledge for any fitness professional as the manuals contain all concepts in detail.
Omfit grew as doctors approached me to work with them as a Fitness Consultant. It was a privilege to have Kaizzad sir inaugurate my new office in January 2018: The Omfit Fitness Theatre.
I owe the progress in my career to the entire team at K11 which displays exemplary dedication towards building me in a better fitness professional. In 4 years I changed from being a guy who was doubted and made fun of, to being a successful entrepreneur respected by the society. This change in me became possible because of my beloved school – K11.
Before joining K11 Academy of Fitness Sciences, my attitude & views were totally different from what I have now, I was not aware of exercise science. In fact, I never knew that there is some science also in exercise. After doing the courses from K11 Academy my views changed a lot. I got to know the right choice or rather the selection of exercises and doing them with the right form & techniques, also the nutrition course helped me a lot in knowing what to eat & how much to eat and why to eat certain foods. I highly recommend everyone to join the K11 academy and learn the right exercise science and nutrition.
K11 provides its students the cutting-edge knowledge to bring their technical quotient up in pure sciences of the human body such as the thorough understanding of human anatomy; kinesiology & a solid appreciation of the application of biomechanics to improve the member's exercise performance. Not only that but K11 certification courses also equips a trainer with world class coaching techniques to keep his personal training clients & general members of 48 Fitness motivated to exercise regularly, which invariably enables the trainers to deliver results to the members with a lot of effectiveness while keeping exercise equipment safety measures in place & reinforcing textbook perfect form & technique through accurate exercise cues.
The passion fueled in a K11 certified trainer provides them with an unparalleled professionalism & an uncompromising commitment to ensure that they stand out class apart when it comes to delivering international level service to our members.
Moreover, this aforementioned observation is a consistent one across the board with all the K11 certified trainers we have interviewed & hired over the 4+ plus years of our operations. It's because of this world class, member-centric orientation of students who are K11 certified is why we give first preference to K11 students in our human resource recruitment mandates.
Before successfully completing the K11 Master Trainer course, Bikash was working at 48 Fitness as a Senior Personal Trainer drawing about 42k to 45k bracket average monthly salary. However, after acquiring the highly regarded & industry acclaimed K11 Master Trainer credentials, Bikash's value additions to his clients in his personal training sessions has gone manifold higher because of which his personal training fees per session have gone up almost 33% & now subsequently he been promoted to a Master Trainer position. He is currently drawing anywhere around 50k to 60k per month on an average.
Before I came to K11 academy of Fitness Science, I was working in a gym called “Knock Out”. Back then I had very little knowledge about the science behind fitness training, but I had lot of interest in the field of fitness. Then my gym owner “Mr. Amit Jain” asked me whether I would like to go to K11 for Personal trainer course. He introduced me to K11 as he himself is an admirer of Kaizzad sir and I obviously agreed and accepted the offer.
After coming to K11, Mumbai, we didn't have place to stay and it was very kind of “Sunil Kotian” sir to allow us to stay in K11 for 3 days and arranged our accommodation. After starting my classes, it was whole different experience as I learned a lot about fitness science and perfect approach to fitness from the faculties. I regard myself very lucky to be able to learn from experts like Abhijeet sir, Dr. Taher Kudrati etc. The practical classes were also great, thanks to the Master Trainers.
I will surely be coming back to K11 again to upgrade my knowledge and I will proudly recommend K11 to my friends as well….
There was a time when I used to handle the keys of my client's luxurious cars and superbike. Well now, I HAVE ONE. Education is one of the fundamental baselines towards success and money. As K11 righteously shouts that KNOWLEDGE is POWER, you can grab the whole essence of it in the Master Trainers Course.
Revolutionized by the man himself, KAIZZAD CAPADIA, this course teaches us through bio-mechanics of each and every exercise, cues and troubleshooting which helped me as a Personal Trainer in improving my own workouts and as well as my client's.
The course will be your stepping stone towards success but it’s only for those who are truly passionate about their work in fitness industry and wants to earn in depth practical and scientific knowledge. Skyrocketing of your bank balances will start after you earn the certificate.
My first visit to a Gym was in year 2007 when I came to Mumbai and realized that everyone who wants to get fit goes to gym for exercise.
Since I was obese, I too started going to the gym in my office. I followed my gym trainer in tow-tow and I lost weight. But, I lost excessive weight and I realized it was most of muscle loss and some fat loss. And, of course weight rebound happened. I gained whatever I lost. I sensed something was wrong. But, I was convinced otherwise by people near me. In India, everyone is ready to dole out advises even if he knows nothing about it. I also keenly observed one more thing that every gym I went, every trainer has some different set of exercises and various forms of doing the same. Due to this I went through weight rebounds two more times and suffered an accident at gym due to wrong form. After that I realized that I need to be educated and learn the form and technique first hand.
I enquired about different academies providing fitness education in Mumbai. I found that K11 Academy of Fitness Sciences is the best academy educating fitness enthusiasts. I joined PTE-129 (Personal Trainer English – Batch 129) in year 2012. After first few lectures by the knowledge I got, I understood that I have taken the right decision. It broke so many myths that I was holding about regarding nutrition and exercise. As the course progressed my understanding and knowledge grew more and more. I learned the correct form and technique of doing an exercise. I realized that why I went through yo-yo’s in weight.
Everything related to exercise was crystal clear to me. I got certified with flying colors.
This course changed my exercise completely. I applied my knowledge in workout and got result. The way K11 make me exercise maximized the benefit to risk ratio. My family and colleagues were astonished to see the change in me. I was better version of me. The knowledge that I got has logic as it is science based. I had more knowledge than some of the trainers and members in the gym and sometimes they used to ask me the right form. I always spread the right knowledge and motivated fitness enthusiasts to give a visit to K11.
To give an edge to my knowledge regarding fitness I decided to pursue Sports Nutrition Course in 2017 as Nutrition is one of the core components of fitness. I was so astonished and glad at the same time when Mr. Kaizzad Capadia apologized that the education related to nutrition that K11 taught earlier was wrong. It further accentuated my trust in K11 because it takes great courage to accept that. I was shocked to see the deception I was forced to believe in by American heart association, dieticians, and media houses. I am following Keto diet from past 5 months as per K11 guideline. My CNS adaptation has increased. I am doing great at my office and in my personal life. I am happy and healthy. I have lost fat from my body and realized that abs are made in kitchen. I recently conducted a seminar at my office regarding the current changes in nutrition. It was very well received and I got a lot of appreciation from everyone. After this course completes, I am planning to do freelancing in fitness industry.
I am really thankful to Mr. Kaizzad Capadia and K11 Academy for making me what I am today. I can’t even imagine in which state I would have been if I wouldn’t have joined K11.
