Interview with Sneha Sharma : HER FITNESS MANTRA
Ms. Sneha Sharma : When I said I wanted to be a race car driver when I was 8 years old it seemed that nobody believed me. Reluctantly, my Dad helped me start . I dreamt of winning and when that happened I dreamt of racing in bigger and faster cars. Over 10 years later, I had the opportunity to race . It was a long journey to be able to race full-time but I have learned a lot about racing, business and grown so much stronger as a person along the way.
You have selected a sport which requires a lot of cohesiveness and absolute understanding between your team of technicians, your machine and you to finally succeed, how do you achieve that?
Ms. Sneha Sharma : Communication is key. I know that it is important for me to relate to him what my car or truck is doing so I have to have an awareness with what is going on in every part of the race track. It takes a lot of focus and mental clarity.
Ms. Sneha Sharma : I love to lift free weights. I do reps to absolutely exertion and I think because I am Pilot too, my muscles have great memory. So I really mix up my workouts between cardio and strength classes, yoga, Pilates and some days I do 30 minutes cardio on the gym machines (usually treadmill or elliptical) and then 30 minutes of free weights.
Do you take some special diet or have a strict menu that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit?
Ms. Sneha Sharma: I do not have a strict diet but I take things in moderation. I try to limit pasta to once per week and I try to eat fish at least once a week. I really limit sweets and I am not a big snacker as I would rather have small meals. I don't think that what you eat gets you in trouble but what you do not eat. If I am eating enough fruits and vegetables then my body does not crave carbs and I tend to be overall healthier and clearer mentally. I will often blend spinach, water, banana, mixed berries and a splash of orange juice into a smoothie to get many nutrients at once.
You have glowing skin and gorgeous hairs. Do you take some kind of skin treatment to keep it young and glowing and secondly what you do to your hairs to make them look so stunning?
Ms. Sneha Sharma : Thank you! Drinking a lot of water, sunscreen on my face and working out are really great for my skin and hair.
