When asked about her journey, Iram says : In order to understand the depth of the subject one needs to study it oneself, I myself have suffered a lot in my early teenage years.I was struggling with PCOS and obesity.

She adds : “My journey was never a walk in the park. It started after my Intermediate board exams when I realized it’s high time to wake up from my deep slumber as I was being body shamed, been ragged for being obese. I was given weird and upsetting names which back then had sort of become my identity. At the same time I suffered form PCOS due to my weight gain which also led to break outs on my face, bad skin, etc.”

Any sensible human being can imagine how difficult it is for a person, specially a girl to bear witness to such kind of stress. But, Iram Zaidi, not just survived, she transformed herself into a proud version of herself with sheer will power and hard-work. She has organised many seminars and talk sessions in companies like Vodafone, Fossil, EduSports etc.

Iram helps others who face similar kind of challenges that she faced, and has transformed 1800+ people with her guidance. Her clientele includes people from India, USA, UK, Australia, Amsterdam, Canada, Dubai, Qatar and other countries.

We were so inspired and mesmerized with this young gal, and equally amazed by how she manages to stay fit, despite a seriously-lot-of-travel. She really travels a lot, for meetings, seminars, events, yet she somehow manages to keep her diet clean and works out daily.

Iram told us : ” I don’t have a particular schedule as such because it varies depending on my work and travel. But majorly I try and stick to a flexible routine, easy to manage, no fad diets mostly whole foods, easy to maintain, etc. Same for my workout routine I try to keep a mix of Strength and cardio. I usually plan and design the workout which I like and look forward to rather than some monotonous routine which would feel like a burden.”

Do not think it’s an exaggeration when we tell you, but boy, she lifts heavy !!

In a message to her followers and friends, Iram said : “If you want something, work for it.Don’t go for fad diets as they ruin the metabolism eventually if done in a long run, also never fetch good results. Hence not only in fitness but in all aspects follow something that you could stick on to because sustainable lifestyle is the key to success.”
