Have you always been health conscious? Do you measure each calorie and hit the gym regularly? In spite of your efforts, have you missed out on minute changes in your lifestyle that could have a big impact on your health? While, answers to all the above queries can be found in blogs and books, a personal touch of a coach can go a long way in keeping you on track with your goals.
Samridhi Kapoor, a 37 year old working professional from Gurgaon, has always been health conscious. In fact, conscious eating habits run in her family. Her weight has been more or less constant in the last decade and she even worked out regularly. However, Samridhi had a habit of indulging in unhealthy snacks and aerated drinks and was unable to shirk off that habit. That’s when GOQii helped her shed some old habits, acquire some new ones and get healthier!
Samridhi Kapoor was looking for a fitness tracker to help her track step counts, calories, etc. A colleague from her workplace referred GOQii. While other trackers only tracked steps, calories and distance, GOQii added a more human approach with personalized coaching. She was intrigued by the idea of having a coach who would talk to her everyday and motivate her.
How Did GOQii Help Samridhi Kapoor?
A few years back, she was eating unhealthy due to stressful conditions and was underweight. She gained her weight back around the time GOQii came into her life. Her goal was toning her body and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Her assigned coach started off with minute changes. Samridhi would eat biscuits in the evening which were replaced with healthy snacks. She would enjoy her milk with Bournvita but was advised against it as Bournvita is only sugar and was suggested a healthier alternative.
Samridhi wasn’t too fond of fruits but her coach guided her through the benefits of fruits as they boost immunity and have anti-oxidant properties. She is now regular with fruits. In terms of physical fitness, Samridhi visited the gym regularly. If short on time due to a late shift, she would walk before going to bed. She began practicing yoga as suggested by her coach and found it beneficial. Her coach also shared links to exercises she could try.
In the past 6 months, Samridhi experienced a lot of stress and issues with sleep. Her coach advised meditation which she wasn’t able to continue due to a hectic schedule. For her sleep issues, she was given remedies such as maintaining sleep routine, consuming turmeric milk and chamomile tea. The remedies were useful and she is sleeping better now.
When asked about GOQii, she said:
“The best thing about GOQii is that it has kept pace with the changes that are happening in the market right now. While there are so many other players and brands in the market but GOQii has been able to incorporate so many things that sets it a class apart. The customizations and different types of trackers offered for different type of people for various niche is really good. It has an edge over other players. All the other fitness trackers are the same and have nothing new coming up in terms of features, providing only the basic, standard features.
