Enabling a culture of wellbeing across India - Smriti Mishra

While being grateful for many people’s continuous support, I am so proud to form Fitgenix.

An initiative that facilitates the health transformation of the individual, employees and employers. It has a clear focus on raising the bar of Corporate Wellness across the workplaces and enterprises in India.

Fitgenix is a community resource; a call for workplace-wellness awakening! Through this medium, our goal is to spread awareness, collaborate and assist in contributing towards creating a culture of wellness across India. People first, and always.
