Kiran Dembla – Celebrity fitness trainer – hyderabad
A true example of the saying “impossible is nothing” is fitness trainer Kiran Dembla. She’s been a celebrity trainer for years now but how she got there is a story unlike others. Kiran has a masters’ degree in Indian vocal music and was first a house wife and a mother of two. The urge to do more instead of just sitting at home got to her so much that she started over-thinking and ended up putting on weight. She tried her hand at yoga and swimming but couldn’t continue due to her fear of drowning. A self-motivated lady she decided to conquer her fears and took to swimming once again. Soon, she decided to join the gym where her curiosity grew fast and she finally did a course in fitness and personal training. Kiran went on to train herself and finally opened her own gym. There’s been no looking back since then.
This amazingly motivated lady took it upon herself to get an amazing new body so she could attend the World Body Building Championship and she conquered that too! Kiran Dembla was awarded the 6th place.
