Steadfast Athlete and principal of a nursing school, Shikha Thapa has balanced between being an athlete and a professional teacher. The 2021 National Physique Committee North India Bodybuilding chamipionship bronze medallist has participated in several state-level championships and motivates others to maintain a healthy lifestyle while maintaining the perfect bikini bodybuilding athlete’s body.
Shikha, who hails from Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh, was always into fitness but started her career as a bikini athlete in 2017. Under the direction of her instructor Asad Hussain, she put in a lot of effort and trained hard for her tournaments. In 2018, Shikha took the first step and competed for the first time in a state-level competition, finishing second. She met her coach, who is from Delhi, at this tournament. Moving forward under his rigorous guidance, Shikha competed in the Sheru Classic and Boss Classic championships in 2019 under the bikini category. In 2021, Shikha won the bronze medal at the National Physique Committee’s Bodybuilding and Physique Championship.
Shikha divides her time between training and teaching and says it’s fun balancing the two. She ensures she never misses the gym- on a regular working day or off-season.
The dauntless bikini bodybuilding athlete, associated with Steadfast since 2019, says she takes supplements daily, including Multivitamin, proteins, and the collagen peptides CollaStead.
“Everything is possible if we are willing to do it. As a principal, it’s not very easy, but I know 9 am to 3 pm are my working hours. I know I have to work for six hours, so I divide my day accordingly when I want to work out, especially during prep. I make sure I never miss my gym, whatever it is- whether preparing or off-season. My entire day is active, due to which I feel fresh. Steadfast Nutrition’s range of supplements has helped a lot. They are easy to carry, which is the best attribute. My requirement for the entire day is fulfilled by Steadfast products, including Multivitamins, proteins, and collagen.”
Shikha thanks Steadfast for backing her as a family member and standing by her through thick and thin.
“Steadfast Nutrition is my first sponsorship and is a very good nutraceutical brand. It has been my biggest support during my competition. All the hustle is managed by Steadfast when I am competing. It becomes easy to compete when one is a Steadfast Athlete”.
Shikha says Steadfast extended support during the NPC 2021 championship. For her preparation, she took LeanFast, 5-HTP, multivitamins, Fish Oil, CollaStead, Active BCAA, and Incredible Whey protein (mango flavour) from Steadfast's new line of wellness products.
"I must admit that preparation is difficult without these supplements. Once more, Steadfast, I appreciate you giving us the best selection of wellness and recuperation necessities”.
Shikha is a licensed practical nurse, fitness expert, and bikini athlete who sets the bar high. She is a role model for all the working women who someday wish to join the bodybuilding fraternity. “There is never a wrong time to do the right thing," she says, and lives by it while training and exercising.
Shikha says one must develop healthy habits, eat well, be patient, never give up, keep the mind at peace, and be joyful since happiness is the key to a fit and healthy body.
