My Weight Loss Journey – A Personal Story by Mohini Bogineni

November 11, 2015 / no comments

I am a mother, a working professional and a wife yet the biggest challenge I have ever faced was trying to lose weight. Like many women my age, I had struggled with being overweight most of my adult life, through two pregnancies and post-pregnancies.

I tried several fitness centers but often it felt I had to get into shape just to enter the gym. Getting myself in the door was hard enough, but once there, I found most group-fitness instructors to be cold and impersonal. Working out on my own was extremely boring. Over the years, I have tried Taebo, Total Gym, Bow Flex, Pilates and the list goes on. Nothing stuck.

Then I discovered Bombay Jam. Bombay Jam is a unique total body workout that is set against the backdrop of the latest Bollywood music/remixes. It is absolutely fun and allows me to forget that I am in a gym working out- it feels more like I am out dancing. The instructors are absolutely wonderful and I enjoy it so much that even after being at it for several years, I still look forward to
my one hour of power packed fun every day.

Discovering a work out that suited my needs led to victory after victory. I lost over 70 pounds in 12 months. I lost all that weight the all-natural way – by working out and eating right. More importantly, I have kept it off for – you heard it right! I went from size 14 to size 0. I have cut my risk for diabetes and heart disease considerably, which are very prevalent in the South Asian diaspora. Best of all, Bombay Jam allows me to have all the energy I needBefore After to keep up with my little ones and work full-time.

Because Bombay Jam continues to innovate and develop their program, I am able to continue my weight loss journey without losing interest. They create new content every quarter which means my body does not get used to any one set of movements (which can make a workout ineffectual after a while).

My transformation would not have been possible without Bombay Jam. I’ve learned that it is really important to find a workout regimen that works for you and that you can stay committed to in order to find weight loss success. I am not going to say the old cliché – If I can do it anyone can do it but I am sure I can’t be the only one who loves to dance and wants to get to a healthy weight. All I am going to say is you owe it to yourself to give Bombay Jam a shot.
