“My passion for climbing started as a teenager when I had to scale the boundary wall to skip school. After that I took off to climbing trees and anything else I could find.
With no safety equipment and no real knowledge of how to climb, I began climbing scaffoldings around buildings based off of instinct and hung out on rooftops with my friends. I attended Jai Hind College of Commerce, Arts and Science in Mumbai and recently graduated from the Focus Institute in New York city.
My love for fitness began with organized sports and yoga. I moved to New York to pursue my career in the training industry. I specialize in strength and conditioning, mobility, circuit training and have been powerlifting for the last 2 years. Brooklyn Boulders has given me the opportunity to work amongst some of the brightest and best trainers in NYC so i’m here to make the most of it!
