Life raced ahead for Ashraf after he was chosen winner among 2000 contenders at a dance event. His passion peaked, including a stunning performance at the IIFA Awards.Read more
He was forced to slow down due to a dance related injury. While the team of doctors around him was telling him that he would never dance again, Ashraf’s mind was already discovering ways to fuel his passion for dance. He started observing dance from a fitness perspective. This helped him dive deep into understanding muscles, how they are connected and how they work. Having healed himself of his injury, Ashraf resolved to become a dance and fitness coach.
He invested the next 12 years of his life working with clients who sought his support as a dance and fitness coach as well as fine tuning his own fitness practice. Ashraf’s experiments with both fitness and dance lead to a beautiful integration between the two disciplines. A convergence of sorts happened when Manisha Kapoor joined her twin passion for dance and fitness with that of Ashraf’s and it was named Syybol!
Manisha Kapoor is a marketing and branding professional from Mumbai. To balance her sedentary corporate lifestyle of over 2 decades, Manisha was in a forever search for a fitness regime that was effective. Her rather uneventful and episodic visits to the gym and experiments with different diets only left her unsatisfied from within. Along the way, she had a slipped disc. It was a wakeup call making Manisha sit up and focus on her fitness.Read more
Knowing the value of peer motivation and leveraging the technology of the times, she formed an online community in the year 2013. Community members helped keep each other on track. Therein began a more serious affair with fitness. The community grew, and with that Manisha’s interest and consistency with fitness become steadfast.
Manisha started training with Ashraf and discovered the sessions to be more intense, yet fun than anything she had done before. No other workout, even the famous international dance fitness workout, was as interesting and as result bearing as this. When she began strength training with him, Manisha realized that his workouts were significantly different than most other workouts. The songs, the dance, the group energy was just fantastic. And the workout was so much more than just cardio and jumping around.
A couple of months later, they got talking to see how this wonderful workout could reach more people - and that was the beginning of SYYBOL.
