A software engineer by profession, Siva is an ardent Ultra Distance runner & Marathon Coach from Exercise Science Academy, Personal Trainer from BFY, and Isha Hatha Yoga Teacher from Isha Hatha Yoga School. Like many of us, I was no different in leading a sedentary life. He had no concern for my health or belief in ‘eating right’ but that was all to change in 2015, a trek to Rajgad-Torna made me realize how fragile and weak my body was. Consequently, what started as a hobby, became a passion and then a profession. Since then, he has trekked and hiked 100+ places around the Western/Eastern Ghats and the Himalayas and participated in 60+ marathons with a combination of half and full. His longest distance was the much-acclaimed Vagamon Ultra 60 km. He is based in Hyderabad.
After seeing a change he was inspired to change the life of others. Hence, he started training the BHEL Ace Runners and RunMachas Runners group with like-minded people. After receiving a few positive reviews and seeing some amazing transformations, he was motivated to start something on his own. Subsequently, TRYSquad – a fitness group was born in 2019 with friends being the initial members, it now has members from across Hyderabad, Chennai, and Bangalore with the numbers steadily increasing. He believes, ‘this is just the beginning!’
