Yashmeen Chauhan Manak, generally known as Yashmeen Manak is the winner of IBBFF - Indian Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation' overall Miss India 2016 title. She also won gold in both Women’s Physique and Women’s Fitness category. So she was not only fittest woman competitor as well with best muscle. Before winning this title , she had also claimed Best Body award title of Gladrags Ms. India 2005.
She is now a well known fitness personality in India and with IBBFF 2016 Ms. India title, hopefully she will have no looking back and most probably in future she will be representating India on International Bodybuilding plateform.
She was a chubby girl in her teenage and due to illness, her treatment made her gain weight, she tried all techniques to loose but because of lack of any guidance, she failed miserably. She even had sever pimples due to her medications but she never gave up and instead used it as her motivation.
She even has her website where she mentioned how hard it was for her to be in shape today, she was not born with gifted genetics but becuase of hard work and determination she is able to scultp her body today. And not to mention, she is owner of Gym named "Sculpt".
At school or at home, everybody used to tease me for being fat and having a face full of acne. Well, I thought my face and the acne is something I cannot do much about, but my body is up to me how I want to shape it. While in school it was impossible for me to be consistent with my exercise. During that time there were hardly any gyms. Still I used to try to do something or the other by reading or watching here and there but with no results. I made the same mistakes which most of the people make even today like skipping breakfast, eating only two meals, etc. There was nobody to guide me right. Once I was out of school, I joined a local gym, worked out hard like crazy, felt better but did not lose much. The reason was no proper guidance. In my quest of obtaining knowledge, I enrolled myself for a basic Aerobics course with Reebok. I received my certification for an Aerobics trainer but I did not restrict myself. I kept on reading, studying, enrolled myself with advanced courses on exercise prescription, nutrition, various exercise methods, kept on attending national and international seminars and workshops, experimented with my knowledge first on myself and then on my deserving clients and here I am today.
