I help busy professionals create an active and healthy lifestyle and live a vibrant life. As an avid runner and triathlete, I often hear from people that they would like to get healthy and fit, but do not have the time, energy, or motivation for it. These conversations inspired me to launch Your Best Self Fitness & Wellness Coaching. 

 

As I was pursuing my career in finance, I used to spend long hours in the office. I did not have time to work out. I ate unhealthy foods and felt guilty about it. I stayed up late and didn't get proper sleep. I felt exhausted all the time and had no energy to do things that I enjoyed. I got sick often. I wanted to change my life but didn't know how or where to start.

My life radically changed when I started my fitness journey in 2012 and exercise became an inseparable part of my life. Not only my physical health improved, but I also got more energy to pursue my personal and professional aspirations and enjoy my life.

Through my personal fitness journey, I've gained deep insights into physical and mental health, daily self-care habits, personal goal setting, motivation, and productivity. This experience combined with my training as a Certified Professional Coach, a USA Triathlon Level I Certified Coach, a Certified Nutritionist, and a Certified Personal Trainer gives me the knowledge and skills to help you achieve your fitness and wellness goals and live a vibrant life.

​I believe that living an active and healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be complicated, time-consuming, and overwhelming. It’s all about creating daily habits and taking consistent small actions.

My fitness journey started during the first year after my MBA program as I returned to the corporate world. My job was stimulating, but I was craving for some physical challenge.
 
My family and friends were very surprised when I decided to climb Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, which rises to 19,340 feet (5,895 meters) above sea level. The only time when I went camping was more than 20 years ago and I loathed it.
 
It was beyond my wildest dreams that I would voluntarily want to live in a tent on a mountain for a week, without internet, shower, or toilet while dealing with altitude sickness.

I still remember that feeling of awe I experienced standing on the summit of Kilimanjaro, watching a moonset and a sunrise, shaking from cold and feeling completely exhausted, oxygen-deprived, and ecstatic.


By following my dream to climb Kilimanjaro, I have completely transformed my life. After Kilimanjaro, I climbed Aconcagua in South America, Elbrus in Russia, three volcanos in Ecuador, and Denali in Alaska.

I've also become a passionate runner and triathlete. I've completed seven Ironman triathlons consisting of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride, and a 26.2-mile run in addition to twelve marathons and ultramarathons.

My fitness journey has not only improved my health, but it has changed my life. I've become more confident, optimistic, and satisfied with my life. I feel happier, more motivated, focused, and productive. 

I have more energy to pursue my personal and professional goals. I feel like I can do anything I set my mind to. When challenges arise, I choose to keep moving forward, one step at a time, just like I do while running a race or climbing a mountain.
