“I’m always learning; with every client, every student that I see and teach. Everyday.” - Anjali Sareen
For Anjali understanding how to practically use and apply knowledge gained is of most importance. Passionate about teaching she takes this approach into all her varied education programs in fitness and teacher-training.
Her areas of focus
sports and athletic training
pre- and post-natal
strength and resistance training
group exercise, and more.
She emphasizes on the importance of learning how to move most effectively and efficiently while creating minimal stress to the body.
With this knowledge, she believes, all movement will follow naturally and strongly;

All her teaching is based on the concept of functional fitness focusing on improving
overall strength, muscular endurance,
posture, coordination, balance, and agility.
Co-founder Sharat Sareen’s passion for fitness and sports led him to start The Zone with his wife, Anjali.
He has unrivaled expertise in the
technical aspects of equipment,
training methods, and
latest innovations in the fitness industry.
This has him always at the helm; introducing training programs that have immediate relevance to current lifestyles, goals and needs of individuals.
His ability to nurture, guide and motivate has helped many in successfully establishing and following their goals; be it a fitness professional, an individual looking to adopt a healthy, fit lifestyle, or a sportsperson.
His expertise with respect to equipment and training methods is sought after by industry professionals country-wide.
Sharat’s firm belief in Pilates as a mind-body conditioning method is reflected in his statement, ‘Whatever you do, Pilates can make you do it better’.
He finds the generalized ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to be ineffective; believing that fitness for each individual should be based on specificity and functionality.
The Zone Instructors are a highly dedicated, motivated, and enthusiastic team.
All Zone Instructors participate in a comprehensive training program that includes mentor-ship of up to six months before taking over their roles as Zone Instructors.
The learning for this enthusiastic team never stops as they continue to evolve and gain further knowledge with on-going training programs.
