In today’s fitness-driven world, everyone aspires for the perfect figure and healthy physique. This has given a boost to the fitness nutrition industry that strives to bring the best products to its consumers. Each passing day brings a new technology, a better ingredient profile, or just improved marketing strategies to keep a product on top of its competitors. However, such supplements are like a course book: incomprehensible without a teacher’s guidance. In order to make the most out of a certain fitness supplement, users require proper guidance and effective workout routines. Thankfully, we are blessed with a certified fitness trainer to guide us through the entire process and make the journey of a desirable physique a reality.
Without further ado, let us introduce and talk to our guest, Mr. Ali.
Hi Ali, How are you doing today?
I am great, thank you. I am delighted to be here and excited for this conversation session.
So Ali, we know you are a renowned certified fitness trainer. where and how did this journey begin?
Well, it has been a long journey. I basically started in 2007 at the age of 12. After completing my A’ Levels in 2015, I was motivated to choose fitness industry as my career path. So, when the rest of the world sits for medical entrance exam or prepares for engineering universities exams, or are applying for degrees in arts or business universities, I was enrolling myself in Synergy, which is a benchmark fitness and Martial Arts training institute in Pakistan, associated with Shapes Institute. I had the privilege of being the topper of their third batch.
Tell us a bit more about your certifications
Sure. After completing my certification from Synergy, I began my degree of sports nutrition from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), USA, and International Sports Science Association (ISSA), USA. My courses are almost complete now, and I can proudly call myself a certified fitness trainer of Pakistan.
Many people wonder, what motivated you to pursue fitness as a career?
Well, it was many things. Firstly, it was my passion. Whatever we do in our lives, we make the best out of them only if, and when, we are truly dedicated to them. I was always interested in a healthy and maintained lifestyle. I am not the sort of person to drone on in a nine-to-five job in a field with which I cannot associate. My motivation gave me the drive to build a successful career in an area that was my passion and interest.
Secondly, and as you know, we young lads are very much attracted to those perfect physiques that bodybuilders flaunt on magazine covers and marathons and whatnots. But trust me; this path is not a one night’s miracle. It takes effort, dedication and perseverance, and above all, proper guidance. In attempts of achieving their dream physiques, young men and women end up risking their lives. You cannot go about it without proper consultation and guidance, and that too only from a certified fitness trainer and not some quack. Like all other fields, fitness nutrition and consultation is an ocean of knowledge waiting to be explored, and I am happy that I am among the few who have accessed the treasure box.
Ali, we know you had been associated with some big names of fitness training gyms. what led to a deviation from there?
After my certifications, in 2017 I began working as a trainer with Life Fitness. I worked there for 2 years and later I worked with Get Fit for 3 years.
Although my experience with both of these platforms has been very fulfilling and enlightening, I felt that I am not the sort of person who can work with the restricted scope of limited training hours and fixed training modules. I feel this is such a vast arena that works like “more the honey, the sweeter the taste”. That was when I decided to take a break from there and diverted to working independently through personal hiring.
Well, that is a lot about your expertise, which of course, are unmatched. how you reach out to your fans and general fitness enthusiasts?
Well, I have my own social media accounts where I regularly share tips and tricks for a healthier lifestyle. I am a social media influencer too, and I share my knowledge of different fitness products with my followers to provide them with the best guidance. I have my own YouTube channel by the name of Ali Fitness that currently has more than 2,000 subscribers, particularly from across the border.
to whom do you extend your expertise? who are your clients and how to do you get them through with their fitness goals?
Well, in a nutshell, I am always there for anyone and everyone who wants to stay fit. But to be a bit more specific, I extend my services to celebrities who either do not feel comfortable in going to the gym, or simply cannot do so due to their busy routines. Sometimes there are people following a certain fitness plan, but it does not yield the desired results. That is where I come in, and I guide them to attain their goals.
Currently, my clients are singers, celebrities, models, and sportspersons. In particular, I would like to mention my trainings for players of the famous PSL team Peshawar Zalmi. Apart from these, any person who wants personalized trainings and plans contact me for assistance.
Well ALI, THAT was one amazing session with you. To wrap it all up, what are your thoughts and suggestions to our readers out there?
Well, simply put, I would encourage everyone out there to always take very good care of his or her health. Eat healthy, stay happy, and don’t forget to do some healthy exercise every day. Also, the world of fitness supplements is a big one. Contrary to popular belief, these products actually work. They are not randomly made with whatever low quality ingredient the manufacturer came up with. A certified product by a renowned brand only has the best and most effective ingredients. However, even the best product in the wrong hands, or used improperly, can have consequences. Therefore, practice immense caution before taking any sports supplement, and always consult with a certified fitness trainer to recommend you a product and to guide you on its use.
Stay healthy, stay happy.
