Manju Nivsarkar is the owner and certified personal trainer at Special Strong West North Dallas.
Manju’s superpower is her ability to connect with every type of client. Whether they are six or sixty years old, she takes the time to get on their level and connect with them to create a strong bond that encourages trust and dedication. Manju attributes her superpower to her skills of observation and assessment. She doesn’t simply throw her clients into a cookie-cutter plan but makes an effort to understand their specific needs and creates an individualized program just for them.
For example, Manju never had the opportunity to work with an individual who uses a wheelchair. Still, when they signed up, she took the initiative to learn everything she could to help. She went so far as to pretend that she was in a wheelchair herself to critically analyze what she could and couldn’t do, how it would limit her in the real world, and what areas of improvement would be utilized to create a better life.
Due to this ability to connect and the dedication to providing excellent care, Manju can serve a wide variety of clients, from a double amputee to a teen with Autism. Manju doesn’t turn anyone away and will pursue every avenue to ensure that her clients get the attention and care they need to become stronger, healthier people who can apply their newly learned skills into real-life action.
“Watching my clients make incredible progress in such a short time is amazing to see. I am humbled and excited that I get to be a part of their journey and help them take the next step in creating a healthier life.”
Manju Nivsarkar has been working with the special need’s population in various capacities for the last 12 years. Manju decided to utilize her experience and her education M.Ed., in Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) to open her own franchise Special Strong serving the West North Dallas area.
Currently we have partnered with Plano Parks and Recreation and are hosting group classes. Feel free to contact our team for more information.
