About Youssef

I’ve spent the last decade honing my training methods and changing countless lives through fitness and exercise. I was born and raised in the Land of the Pharaohs (Egypt) but eventually decided to move to the US to pursue my dreams.

I was only 15 years old when my grandfather began hounding me about my poor posture. As annoying as it was to hear, grandfather was right – my constant slouching was ruining my health.

Grandfather had witnessed the effects bad posture produced in others. Issues like difficulty breathing, abnormal spine conditions and a host of other serious problems. Sure, from time to time I would stand up tall to impress my grandfather. But, as soon as the coast was clear, I was right back to my old ways. While it took years to fully grasp what he was trying to tell me, the idea eventually took hold.

I finally took the plunge to enroll at a gym and hire a personal trainer. My first coach (Mostafa), was nothing short of amazing.

Not only did he teach me the ins and outs of training, but also opened my eyes to the parallels of fitness and life. Hard work, accomplishing goals, making sacrifices and building sweat equity for something you believe in. Mostafa taught me how to love myself and my body by eating right and exercising.

True life lessons that compelled me to share my knowledge with others.

Ever since then, I’ve been fascinated with the intricacies of the human body, biomechanics, and human physiology. Through years of training, commitment and persistence I’ve been able to overcome my poor genetics and experience incredible results.

Now, I’ve made it my life’s work to pass this knowledge onto others.
