On 25th September, 2019, Mumbai’s JW Marriott hotel, Juhu, lit up with Bollywood stars and the country’s most noted industry experts, on the occasion of the 10th Indian edition of the Vogue Beauty Awards (VBA) 2019, where fitness guru to the stars, Sohrab Khushrushahi was awarded the ‘Vogue Fitness Expert of the Year Award’, by the current top actor – Alia Bhatt. Every year, Vogue India’s annual beauty extravaganza celebrates the best of the best in the beauty industry, with this year’s felicitations taking it a few notches higher than ever, with a guest list brimming with some of the Indian film industry’s most popular faces including Sara Ali Khan, Shahid Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal and many more.
Sohrab is the founder of the fitness outfit – ‘Sohfit’ – which follows the philosophy – there has to be more to getting fit than spending fruitless hours on boring workouts and impossible-to-implement diets. It is about feeling good, both on the inside and outside, through one-on-one personalised sessions, boot camps, buddy workouts, online programmes and consultations, personally curated by Sohrab and his team of expert coaches. According to Sohrab, “Fitness is not purely about muscle gain or even weight loss for that matter. It is the ability and the confidence to do things you never thought your body could do. It is a state of mind. Don’t train for a special occasion, train for life!”
Sohrab gave up a ten-year long career in corporate law to follow his passion for fitness. His fitness journey started twenty years ago as a teenager where he played cricket at a semi-professional level. Sohrab always looks to challenge himself and his body in the gym and does the same with his clients. With an entire life-time spent in fitness, his true passion lies in guiding all walks of people towards a better life. Sohrab is a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer and has successfully completed (a) the Rehab Trainer Essentials; (b) the Rehab Trainer Masterclass; and (c) the Art of Breath 101 Course. He is also a MobilityWOD Mobility and Movement Specialist after having successfully completed the Starrett System Movement and Mobility 101.
