Mansi grew up in India and was always interested in health and physical fitness. She spent two years at University studying Physical therapy before she moved out to Australia 10 years ago. When she first moved to Australia it was a big lifestyle change for her, and Mansi decided to take the time to work on her own body, health and fitness. She spent a lot of time reading about nutrition and exercise, she loved it so much she studied the Certificate 3 and 4 in Fitness to become a Personal Trainer. The more she learned the more she loved it, and she spent several years working as a PT in a big gym, then a few years doing PT on her own.
Two and half years ago Mansi had a beautiful baby boy and has spent that time away from work to focus on the little man. She is now ready to re-join the fitness industry and was so excited when a job with Fitness Enhancement came up. It gives her the flexibility to make her own schedule to work around her family time, but without having to pay rent or the need to be constantly marketing and recruiting her own clients.
