Fitness has always been a big part of C Elina Sangtam’s life. She is somebody who has often spoken about the importance of physical and mental well-being in one’s life. In the last several years, Sangtam has won several beauty pageants and has made India proud with her achievements.
While the world recognizes her as a beauty queen, she has been an inspiration to the youth of the country because of her dedication towards fitness. Sangtam, who hails from Nagaland, was recently Miss Fit India International. The event was organized at IHFF Fitness Festival in New Delhi and attended by luminaries from different professions. Sangtam was crowned by Mr. Sergi Constance, a prominent model, and actor from Spain who has often been described as the king of body building.
Talking about this win, an elated Sangtam says, “Though I have won important titles in the past, getting crowned Miss Fit India International was a very special moment for me. I am somebody who has always believed in leading a life that is filled with activities that lead us towards holistic well-being. If you are physically and mentally fit, you can achieve anything in this world. Being conferred with this title has made me feel further responsible for spreading the message of fitness and a healthy lifestyle.”
With time, beauty pageants have evolved greatly. Now, many pageants award titles to contestants based on several important aspects like health and fitness. Miss Fit India International is a pageant that judges contestants based on their fitness level. Sangtam believes that such pageants are playing an important role in promoting a healthy lifestyle.
“I feel a pageant should have a definitive purpose and that purpose should help both women and men move towards a healthier and more positive lifestyle. A lot of young individuals get influenced by such pageants and we must ensure that they get inspired to do better things in life and achieve their goals”, she states.
Miss Fit India International Show was officially sponsored by VIVA Fitness, which is one of India’s most popular fitness and body building equipment brand, trusted by millions including the world-renowned personal trainer Kai Greene.
