Let us look into the inspirational life of Shweta Rathore, who at the age of 27 years has already become an international celebrity.

The beginning of her Journey:

You should know that Shweta was not born into a hotshot family. She was born in Jaipur, Rajasthan, on 13 June 1988 to Anil Kumar and Sangeeta Singh. It might interest you to know that Shweta has a degree in Engineering that she obtained from Rajasthan Vidayapith deemed university. We are sure that her parents had no clue that their daughter would be creating history in the years to come.

Shweta had a passion for fitness since her childhood. She was beautiful but not delicate. She started working out when she was only in 11th grade. She wanted to make fitness a part of her life and encourage other women to do so. She also wanted to break the myth, that strong and ripped muscles make a woman look ‘manly’. Shweta has mentioned that her father was against her craze for fitness and so worked out secretly in her tuition hours. She has said in an interview, “My dad was completely against it, so I used to go secretly, during my tuition hours, but after seeing my muscles grow on a daily basis, he realized I was going to the gym. Since then he has supported me. That being said, my mother and brother have always supported me.”
