LeanScience is the endeavour of two people, Ameet Bagwe and Sudarshan Gangrade, and has a simple vision:
To help more people become healthier and fitter through science, and in a way that leaves them independent in terms of weaving the methods sustainably into their lifestyle.
Science is core to LeanScience. So important, we have it in our name, and we call it the Founder; with the 2 of us as Co-Founders. Science is the neutral, researched truth.
Ameet is the quintessential mad scientist. When it comes to aspects of the science behind the human physiology or client’s health goals, he will not stop researching until he has figured it out at the core.
And he then presents it in a simple enough manner for anyone to understand.
Ameet is a graduate from BITS – Pilani and a Chip design architect with Texas Instruments.
A big sports enthusiast, Ameet has represented Madhya Pradesh in swimming, plays Tennis, Badminton, Basketball and a whole host of sports.And oh, did we mention, he is also a guitarist and a singer.
Sudarshan is the reason LeanScience exists, building on Ameet’s concepts to make them accessible to everyone. He also runs the business side and ensures clients have a great experience at LeanScience.
He’s also a tough critic of Ameet’s methods, trying them for himself to see if there is something that can be improved upon in the client experience.
Sudarshan is a Chemical Engineer from IIT Kharagpur and a management graduate from IIM Bangalore. His most recent corporate stint was at Ola Cabs, as the head of all Marketing (Offline and Online) and a Category P&L. Prior to this, he has worked as full time volunteer in the core team of Mr. Nandan Nilekani that launched the Aadhaar project, has done Sales & Marketing at Asian Paints; and been in the world of Analytics at the time when most people had not heard of the word Analytics.
Not particularly interested in a standard career path, he also tried his hand at taking a break and doing nothing for some months.. And sucked at it!
Roger Federer and Amit Trivedi can keep him occupied for eternity.
The LeRA (LeanScience Research and Application team) team’s charter is to build on the scientific nutrition and fitness methodologies pioneered by Ameet, and to further our vision: making sustainable fat loss and improved health accessible to all.
