Krishna Shroff is no ordinary girl. An independent and strong woman of the 21st century, she has carved a unique niche for herself away from the arc lights. She has established herself as a role model in the world of fitness, so much so that girls across the country look up to her as an inspiration. From trending social media videos whilst lifting the heaviest of heavy weights at the gym or punching some amazing moves in the mixed martial arts territory, there is nothing that Krishna cannot conquer. Therefore, it comes as no surprise to hear that she was felicitated at the prestigious 27th Sol Lions Gold Award 2021 as the ‘Fitness Enthusiastic of The Year 2020-2021’. The award was bestowed on her by the honorable Governor of Maharashtra -Bhagat Singh Koshyari, an event that took place on Tuesday at Raj Bhavan, Mumbai.
An entrepreneur in her own right, Krishna Shroff is the brainchild behind MMA, a mixed martial arts venture that she started with her brother Tiger Shroff that now boasts of 8 branches pan India.
Experiencing the gratitude recieved, Krishna Shroff says “Thank you so much Lions Award for this extremely special recognition. I always say that fitness is the present and 100% the future. I am overwhelmed to be one of the pioneers for taking fitness forward in our country, helping to motivate and inspire our youth in anyway I can and to introduce them to a better lifestyle on the whole. I’ve always said that fitness has given me an identity away from what everyone expected me to be and I will forever be grateful to fitness for that reason. I also want to thank my brother Tiger, for my being my biggest motivator and encouragement. To be able to pursue what I am incredibly passionate about and be able to do what I love everyday is an absolute blessing.”
