Sahithi begins her day with the workouts by strengthening her core muscles by jogging at the beach. Jumping on sand gives her high jumping ability. Besides, her Fitness trainer focuses on the all-around development of physical fitness with professional training equipment, followed by the instructed diet, with a small break after workouts. Getting herself ready to roll on wheels, Sahithi practices with all three artistic skates in a day and was the only skater who made a hat-trick by securing medals three times at Nationals.
Her trainers, P.Satyam, Team India coach and K.Chitti baabu, Aandhra Pradesh coach played a key role in training her to prepare for her upcoming international debut. This rigorous training makes her be on wheels for 4 hours a day and her training continued even during the pandemic when sports facilities were not opened. This strong determination and dedication were rewarded once the competitions started again.
All the training Team surprised everyone, by displaying the medals on the table at Nationals, state and district levels with an unbeaten number- 76 medals with 42 gold, 31 silver, and 3 bronze. Among the players, Sahithi is the youngest girl who secured 19 National Medals at the age of 10.
