Born 21st of September, 1986, I grew up most my life living in Egypt. I was always a fan of comics, Japanese anime, and I spent most my childhood and teenage years drawing, and in front of the TV. By the end of high school, unfortunately due to cultural reasons, I was forced into Engineering by my parents. After my first year in University, I decided I needed an escape, and so I took on boxing.
A motorcycle accident and a shoulder surgery later, I was told I would not be able to continue boxing, and so I thought to myself; if I can’t fight like the characters I drew, I might as well look like them. And that’s when it all began. A year later I began actively competing in bodybuilding.
After several attempts, I became the first in my University history to win the University and Collegiate Nationals in bodybuilding. That was my fifth show, in 2009. After graduating in 2011, I had moved to Muscat, Oman, to work as a sales Engineer. Unhappily working, I began to retreat once more into the bodybuilding lifestyle. 2 warning letters later, I competed in the IFBB Oman 8th Annual national competition, where I had placed 4th.
Soon after a long depressing phase, I had finally received the news that my Immigration to Canada was ready, just in time for the birth of my first son. And it was here where life’s true brute began. No jobs, no prospects, doing small work here and there, I wasn’t going anywhere, barely surviving, making ends meet, and feeding my family. A year later, my daughter was born, and it was then when I decided, again, bodybuilding is to be my savior, one last time. This was my last ditch effort.
My 4th placing in Oman had qualified me for nationals in Canada, the biggest and highest level competition for Amateur bodybuilding – It was do or die.
August 18th, 2012, was the day my life changed; It was the day I had won the Canadian Nationals as a middle weight from my first attempt. Since, I have built my reputation as a bodybuilder, and as a coach, helping people with customized programs to achieve short term and long term goals, and prepping athletes for competitions – be it bikini, figure, physique, or bodybuilding. My record stands solid, and I strive and continue to inspire others with what I do, and proving that dreams do come true.
