Twosome: Saina Nehwal and Dinaz Vervatwala take inspiration from each other.

Fitness trainer to take part in ‘Ms. Fitness World 2010' to be held in US

It is a reversal of roles. Not long ago, champion shuttler and World No. 2 Saina Nehwal looked to Dinaz Vervatwala, renowned fitness trainer, as a source of inspiration. And now, Ms. Vervatwala is trying to excel like Ms. Nehwal in the forthcoming ‘Ms. Fitness World 2010' being organised by the International Fitness Sanctioning Body in Reno (USA) on August 21 and 22.

Saina confesses she picked some invaluable tips to maintain the demanding fitness levels so as to compete in the world of sport, Dinaz acknowledges the best woman shuttler from India is a role model for her.

She will be the first-ever Indian to enter this competition and vows to give her best to bring laurels to the country.

The world competition features 25 to 27 candidates from across the world and is split into three segments with focus in the first round being overall grooming, cosmetic appeals and public address skills, the second one is on muscle tone with clean, tight lines and reasonable levels of body fat. The third will be on strength, flexibility and endurance, effectively testing one's ability to combine beauty and poise.

‘Desi Girl' track

Dinaz said that she had already started training for the big event with a team of support staff comprising Madhu (bodybuilder), Sunil (gymnast), Abhijit (dancing and hairstyle) and Ashwin (beauty care). The trainer will be displaying her skills to the ‘Desi Girl' track in competition.

Saina is amazed at Dinaz's fitness levels and expressed the confidence that the fitness trainer will come back home with the title.
