    I'm a personal trainer and fitness instructor specializing in kickboxing. I had met Nirmal 2 years ago through my wife. Nirmal was suffering from Chondromallacia Patella - a condition I was unaware of at the time. Chondromallacia is essentially the wearing away of the cartilage around the knee cap. It's actually a common condition to people who are or have been active. There are 4 grades of severity. Nirmal was a grade 4, which was rare for her age, and the doctors couldn't explain why. Essentially, in grade 4 severity, her cartilage has worn away completely, thus she had undergone surgery to shave and reshape her knee cap. She was immobile for a long while, and had to rely on a mobility scooter during recovery. When I met Nirmal, she had asked me to train her as she wanted to get back into shape, pre-surgery. She was a very active person prior: played sports, was a trained in classical Indian dance and modern Bollywood dance, and was always seeking out activity adventures. Although she was going through physiotherapy, she had told me she hit a wall with what she could do, and asked if there was a way to break that wall. I took on that challenge, seeing as she overcame her first challenge, asking for help. During her training, I realized how limited her movement was. She could barely get up from off the ground, she could not take the stairs at all, she couldn't bend her knees or even use a stationary bike. My challenge was to add cardio routines into her life without aggravating her knee. Thus I introduced her to boxing. With the help of her previous physio therapist, Melissa, I drafted out a workout regiment that would include strengthening of her quads, her glutes, and her lower back and core with the addition of boxing combinations that would serve as her cardio endurance routine. The one thing I noticed about Nirmal's attitude was that although she had that fighting spirit to overcome her challenge, she had gained strong inhibitions towards her knee and her overall mobility; she would be one foot in the right direction and one foot staying back as the phrase goes. Overtime, her strength increased, she began to punch harder, and faster, and was able to use muscles in her body she had not used in a long time. Boxing drills became more complex, and muscle conditioning and endurance became more advanced. In time, she stopped mothering her old injury, and started on concentrating on how to overcome the new challenges I was giving her. She was learning to fight back against her condition, and without realizing it, she started taking the stairs, going for short jogs in the park, bending her knees for squats and lunges, and she's now able to deflect and move around moving targets during boxing training. It was mind over matter; each time she said she couldn't I told her to try one more time. She learned to fight, and she surprised herself through the process as now she's re-learned to walk, to run, and to dance. She's getting married late 2015 and her fiance and her are looking forward to dancing at the ceremony.
