Ep 89: Karishma Sharma – Balancing A Corporate Career, Physique Competitions & Marathons

Welcome back to another episode of RNT Fitness Radio, and today I’m joined by Karishma Sharma from Delhi, a high ranking fitness athlete and marathon runner who also works as an executive in the corporate world. 

Karishma’s got an interesting story to share, and what really strikes me is her ability to balance a demanding career in the corporate world, with pushing her body to the limits in two drastically different disciplines – physique building and marathon running. 

She only started her proper training in her early 30s, and has gone on to win multiple titles in the physique competitive arena all over Asia at the highest level. 

Karishma’s a truly athlete and is the real professional when it comes to living the lifestyle, and being an example to those around her.

Hope you enjoy this one!
