What an accomplishment just to compete in the Kettlebell Sport World Championships! Her backstory with kettlebells chronicles a decade-long appreciation for them since she was 10. An interesting note in the article mentions how she routinely works out with 24kg (53-pound kettlebells), however, the class she is competing in (amateur) requires 16kg (35-pound kettlebells) to be used.

Both businesses specialize in healthy meal preparation in their respective countries. In addition, they each seem to have a substantial following and are well-received. It’s quite a strange coincidence indeed.
According to the Bloomberg article from December 2017, India is Getting Fat, there has been a 2500% increase in male obesity since 1975. It would be unfair to solely single out India, as I believe the world, in general, has become a lot more sedentary.
