Saveen V Menon, CEO and Founder, “The Fitt Studio”
Fitness is way more than an activity; it is a way of life. Saveen V Menon with an experience of 2 decades in the industry, is that expert you would want to go to for all your fitness concerns. Known as the transformation specialist in his social circle, Saveen holds a record for having the highest number of transformations by any fitness trainer in a year. One of the leading fitness experts and supplement guides in the country, he has many feathers in his cap and is also a Celebrity Trainer and a Contest Prep coach.
Saveen’s journey wasn’t sugar coated and he overcame some major hurdles to reach where he is today. Starting off with no support from family and friends, Saveen paid for his fitness certifications working as a help at a local gym and washing cars. As if it wasn’t enough, tragedy struck and Saveen lost his father to kidney failure just when his father had begun to accept Saveen’s decision to focus on a career in the fitness industry.
With a passion for fitness & health in general and the goal to help others achieve their fitness goals and improving their health & lifestyle as well, Saveen founded ‘The Fitt Studio’ Bangalore. While most other chain of gyms, especially those running under the big brand names, were focused on getting memberships and not on the actual health & fitness goals of the clients, it triggered him to start a personal training studio to help individuals achieve those goals. In a place where most gyms treat clients well only for their enrolments and renewals, Saveen came in as a real savior with a mission to spread basic fitness and nutrition knowledge to those who put their trust in him and hired him as a coach. Since the most vaiable solution was a personal training studio, The Fitt Studio was born.
Like any new business or startup, Fitt Studio too came with its teething troubles. A concept like Saveen’s was a new take on things and there was no financial backing. Apart from the looming competition like in any business, Saveen even had to face life threats goons guised as competition from the very industry itself. The next challenge that came was that of building a passionate team, however, many of these team members were not from fitness background. As of today, every team member is certified in different areas of fitness and The Fitt Studio has been awarded the title of Best Transformation studio in South India 2019 by Nationwide awards 2019.
Saveen himself has added a couple of more accolades to his credentials and has won the title of
Best Fitness manager and best personal trainer Pan India under Snap Fitness 24/7 in 2012-13. Joining the repertoire of TedX speakers, Saveen spoke at Catalyst for change: Tedx Global Academy in April 2018.
There is still a long way to go and Saveen keeps himself motivated by pushing his clients to go after their goals. Having hired an international prep coach George Farah to enable him to continue learning and honing his skills, Saveen continuously keeps upgrading his skills in training methods and nutrition concepts. His one giveaway to everyone is, “If you want a transformation, aim for permanency and not temporary results. Get to the root cause and start by treating that instead of finding temporary solutions or even a temporary body transformation. Transformation must be overall physical as well as mental.”
