After receiving my diploma in Computer Engineering in 2005, I worked in both Management Information Systems (MIS) and Project Management for 6 years. In an effort to stay healthy, with a full-time desk job, I enrolled in Fitness Kickboxing (KickFit) classes and it was there that I was introduced to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) for the first time. I instantly fell in love with both KickFit and BJJ, and it wasn't long before I knew a shift in my career path was underway. I trained vigorously on daily basis simultaneously maintaining my full-time job and teaching KickFit classes for beginners, until I finally made a permanent change to a career in sports, first by becoming a KickFit instructor followed by taking part in international Jiu Jitsu competitions, under the supervision of 5 Dan Black Belt Master Samy AlJamal. I started training crossfit at Quicksand to improve myself for Jiu Jitsu, and started coaching KickFit classes in both MAT05 ( FIT BJJ Team - Samy AlJamal), as well as, Quicksand in order to help and inspire more people to train, become more aware of their physical bodies, look after their health, and invest in their happiness and well-being.
During the years of travel and competition, my knowledge and experience of nutrition and physical training constantly grew, but what fascinated me the most was the role of the mind and the importance of that mental and emotional state when it comes to nutrition and dieting, addictions and injuries, physical training and performance, illnesses and chronic health conditions or diseases. Practicing different modalities of alternative & energy medicine over the years proved it’s significance in healing the aforementioned in my case, and in constantly creating the life I aspire to have at each point in my life; a realization that changed my perception of life, health and wellbeing, and made me eager to study the details behind it all. To that end, I enrolled in a Bachelors to PhD degree program while coaching KickFit and competing in Jiu Jitsu, and proceeded to working with clients as soon as I received my Bachelors in Holistic Health Sciences while continuing my studies. Currently, my aim is to help those who are seeking to grow and improve their life, lifestyle, health and wellbeing.
