Mr. India, IBBF Amateur Bodybuilder, Fitness Consultant & Personal Trainer
Hi, I am Nizar Dawoodani from India, Mumbai.
I have won five times Gold at the Indian Nationals in a row and I am preparing for my first International event, Mr. World probably to be held at Barcelona, Spain November 2012 in the physically challenged category.
At the age of 6 I had contracted polio in my left leg. A condition in which my whole left leg was paralized which led to degradation of the musculo system of my left leg. So it was only bone covered with only fat and no quadriceps , hamstring or calf muscles. This led to my being immobile at that age.
At school I used to wear clutches as I couldn’t balance and walk on my own. As time passed I started working on my weaker leg and by the grace of God, by the time I was in my 2nd grade I could move pretty well without those clutches. In my school days I used to focus on indoor games only because of my condition. I could manage to compete and win at Interschool level in sports like Table Tennis, Swimming, Carrom.
At university level I was feeling much stronger and started learning martial arts. 5 years on I achieved the black belt and started coaching.
At the age of 27 I got married and as usual all my time was dedicated to my Business and my family leaving me no time for my sports activities.
At the age of 35, I put on a lot of weight and it was the first time I joined a gym to get back into my fitness routine.
Slowly and steadily it turned into a passion and I met my mentor Mr. Kaizzad Capadia under whom I did my personal training and nutrition/supplimentation certification. From there on I have never seen back and always looked forward to achieve newer heights.
At my young age of 50 I am roaring and rocking ahead to achieve as many accomplishments and at the same time help others to reach their fitness goals through scientific and correct methods in the field of weight training, cardio vascular training, nutritional and supplimentational support.
