About Me

My name is Kazi Chandrima Rahman. I am currently pursuing my PhD. in Embedded and Operating Systems Lab at CSE, UNSW Sydney, Australia, Kensington  

Campus. Previously I served as a Research Assistant, CSE, UNSW, Kensington Campus, Australia.
I have teaching experience for more than twelve years in various private universities in Bangladesh, lastly working as an Assistant Professor in Dept of CSE, University of Asia Pacific. I also worked as a Software Developer in Grameen Solutions.

I have received my B.Sc (Hons) and M.Sc in Computer Science from University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. I have passed H.S.C and S.S.C from B.A.F. Shaheen College, Dhaka.

I have great passion about exercise, healthy living and fitness. I was a member of Gold’s Gym, Bashundhara, Dhaka for more than 10 years and lost about 26 kgs within a year and now maintaining my weight and shape. I am continuously acquiring knowledge about these topics. I have received “Excellent Fitness Award” from Gold’s Gym, Bashundhara in 2008. Besides these, I’m also interested in Sports. I was the Convener of Sports Club of my workplace–  University of Asia Pacific, Dhaka, Bangladesh. Badminton, Chess, Volleyball, Cricket, and Football are my favorite games. I have achieved several  Champion trophies in  Badminton from my University. After coming to Australia, I am practicing home workout including: : HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training), Kickboxing, Step Aerobics, Weight-lifting, Plyometrics, Zumba etc.

I was also a Cadet of Bangladesh National Cadet Core (BNCC) of Bangladesh Air Force during my H.Sc. study period.
I am not only enthusiastic about doing exercise but also interested about proper diet and healthy lifestyle.

Exercises like Spinning, Aerobics, Kickboxing, Running, HIIT, Step Aerobics, Zumba, Circuit Training are my favorite exercises. Circuit and kickboxing improved my physique a lot!

I try to gather huge knowledge about exercise and diet and try to implement this knowledge in my life. I did not find any fitness blog or website in Bangladesh and so I have started this fitness blog especially for women. I will try to share my knowledge about exercises and diet with people and will try to make everyone aware about exercise and fitness.

I think lack of  knowledge of proper diet and exercise is killing people in the world as well as my country — Bangladesh. I’m astonished to see what an unhealthy life people are living. I have read and visited hundreds and hundreds of exercise, diet and fitness related web sites. I have collected exercise related videos of world’s famous trainers like Jillian Michael, Cathe Friedrich, Shelly Dose, Jennis Saffel, Tracy Anderson, Kathy Smith, Denise Austin, Shaun T, Bryan Kest, Rodney Yee etc.

I’m also a fitness writer in Daily New Age, Daily Amar Desh, Sastha Bangla, Deho, Irish Bangla Barta, Youth Spark.

I wish this blog will help people to maintain a healthy life and I look forward to receiving your feedback and comments about this blog regularly.

Also, in various markets, you get sports shops. There u can get dumbbells etc. Price may be varied from shop to shop. But, don’t forget to do bargaining.It may be started from 1000tk.

  17. Wonderful to see your blog, Chandrima! Not only am I pleasantly surprized, I’m equally motivated to see that you workout at Gold’s Gym, Basundhara. My Dad has been pressing me to get enrolled in a gym – I guess this is what I needed to know!

    Please let me know how women-friendly it is at Gold’s Gym, whether there’s separate floor for the girls, and if there’s an instructor for the machines. I’ve gained a lot of weight while studying abroad – need to shed all these flabs now.

    Please do let me know. Thank you! Wishing you beautiful days ahead.

  20. আমি আজ সামুতে কোলা নিয়ে একটা পোস্টটে আপনার সাইটের লিঙ্ক পেলাম।
    about me থেকে আপনার সম্পর্কে জানলাম।আপনি ফিটনেস সচেতন।আমি নিজেও ২ বছর যাবত জিমে ব্যায়াম করি।যদিও রেগুলার না।মাঝে মাঝেই বিরতি পরে।আমি ব্যায়াম নিয়ে ব্লগ লিখার চিন্তা করতে ছিলাম।যেহেতু বাংলায় ব্যায়াম নিয়ে কোনো ব্লগ গুগল সার্চে আমি পাইনি।http://homegym4u.blogspot.com/ আপাতত বিভিন্ন সাইট থেকে কিছু দিয়েছি।লেখাপড়ার জন্য সময় পাই না।

    আপনি ব্যায়াম নিয়ে বাংলায় ব্লগ লিখেন দেখে অবাক হলাম।আমাদের ছেলেরা তো নাই মেয়েরাও অনেক কম ফিটনেস সচেতন।ধন্যবাদ আপনাকে।

    • আপনাকে অসংখ্য ধন্যবাদ ব্লগ পড়ার জন্য | আপনি ফিটনেস সচেতন জেনে খুব ভালো লাগলো| আমিও খুব কম মানুষ পেয়েছি এদেশে যারা ফিটনেস সচেতন | আপনার ব্যায়াম নিয়ে ব্লগ লেখার উদ্দ্যোগ প্রশংসনীয় | শরীরচর্চা কিন্তু নিয়মিত না করলে ভালো ফল পাবেন না | সময় না পাওয়ার অজুহাত দেয়া যাবে না | আমি যত কষ্টই হোক নিয়মিত শরীরচর্চা করি |জিমে না যেতে পারলেও বাসায় করি |
      আপনার কমেন্ট এর জন্য অনেক ধন্যবাদ | ভালো থাকবেন, আর অনেক শুভেচ্ছা |

      • আমার পায়ে লিগামেন্ট ইনজুরি আছে।তাই পায়ে সমস্যা হলে অনেক গ্যাপ হয়।

        আমার আপার বডি ও লোয়ার বডি মোটামুটি ভাল কিন্তু বেলি নিয়া সমস্যা।বছর খানেক টানা গ্যাপ হওয়ার কারনে ৩১ থেকে ৩৫ হয়ে গেছে।ওয়েট প্রায় ১০ কেজি বেড়েছে।

        এখন যেখানে ব্যায়াম করি সেই জিম আমার খুব একটা পছন্দ না।কিন্তু কিছু করার নাই।এর থেকে ভাল জিম এলাকায় নাই।আবার ভাল জিম পেলে অনেক দুর হয়ে যায় ও খরচ বেশী যা আমার পক্ষে সম্ভব না।
        আমি সাম্প্রতিক গ্রাজুয়েট ।এখনো রেজাল্ট হয়নি।
        এখন সময় আছে তাই নিয়মিত ব্যায়াম করছি। বেলি নিয়া কিছু সাজেশন দেন।

      • ইনজুরি থাকলে তো আপনাকে সাবধান থাকতেই হবে. ইনজুরি ঠিক হলে ব্যায়াম করেন | তবে খাওয়া দাওয়া টা একটু যদি নিয়ম মেনে খান, তবে ওজন বাড়ে না | আমার সাম্প্রতিক একটা পোস্ট আছে পেট কমানোর, ঐখানে পুরা সাজেশন আছে | আসলে আমাদের দেশে ভালো জীম তেমন নেই | তাই নিজে নিজে ই ব্যায়াম করা ছাড়া উপায় নেই |
        যাই হোক, নিয়মিত ব্যায়াম করুন, আর সুস্থ্য থাকুন |

    I’ll try to visit your blog regularly…..

    Continue sis..
    Nice initiative…

  22. Dentists are vulnerable to back pain. is there any specific exercise which can reduce the risk of back pain in dentists?

    • Thank you Doctor, for your extraordinary question and visiting my blog. Yes, Dentists are highly vulnerable to back pain because of their poor posture. I have also noticed this while you work in your chamber. Dentists have to lean forward for a long period of time when they work. This causes stress in their spine, results back pain.
      Stretching and strengthening the back properly by some stretching exercises can reduce the risk of back pain.

      Click here(http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/back-pain/LB00001_D) to learn some exercises to stretch your back to prevent back pain. But always warm up before stretching exercises. Warm up like: walking, marching on the spot 5 to 10 minutes at least is enough. Otherwise, it may causes injuries in to your back. Remember to cool down your body also. Wearing shoe is must for cardio exercises.
      Another excellent type of exercise I will suggest you to keep away back pain is Yoga. Yoga not only reduces the risk of back pain but also heals your body (other problems of your body) and mind. Click here( https://fitnessbd.wordpress.com/2010/01/10/benefits-of-yoga/)to learn the benefits of yoga. I got dramatic result by practicing yoga regularly. Click here: (http://www.yogacards.com/back_pain_problems.html )–Yoga for back pain.
      I believe that if a person has no problem in his body, doing regular exercise will stop all kinds of problem (including back pain) to take place. Exercises like: Walking, jogging, aerobics, cycling (or stationary bike), cross training, swimming (excellent back and whole body stretching) are also beneficial to maintain good health and to prevent back pain.
      [N.B: I think every person must consult with a doctor or a good gym trainer if he/she has any problem or pain in his/her body before starting exercise. Not all kinds of exercises are suitable for every person.]

    • I think you are suffering from Postural Pain. That is not only the problem of only Dentists, now a days it is becoming the main cause of Occupation related pain.

      To prevent postural pain, you need to maintain a good posture of your back while sitting. That is, you need to maintain the lumber curvature as it is normal. Don’t sit in slouch posture. To prevent bad sitting posture, you can use lumber roll with your chair and it is very cheap at Bangladesh.

      You can maintain back strengthening exercises to keep fit. But if you have pain, before doing any exercise, please consult with a Good Qualified Physiotherapist.

      • Thank you very much Dr. Osman. i dont have back pain now, but when i have to work for long time, i feel some discomfort. A number of colleagues already have back pain. i want to take some steps to prevent that.
        Thanks again for your advice.
