Pain...Where It All Began

Growing up, I witnessed my dad in severe back pain spending most days lying down wishing he could play with me and my brothers.

However, as I got older… BAM! I began to have my own pain thanks to serious car accidents, sports, and bad lifting form. I was put me in the same position as him: lying in bed with pain. I was ONLY 15 years old!

I refused to be like my dad, in pain, mean and irritable due to the pain (and lonely as a result). So, I set out on a journey to Conquer this Pain To Gain the life I envisioned.

I took matters into my own hands because traditional doctors didn’t help. I changed my body in a massive way. I went from constant shooting pain, loneliness and separation to an active human again who enjoyed time with those I loved.

As I learned from the best, I began helping people I knew to transform their bodies and overcome their own pain. It became my obsession.

Pleasure...Who I Became

Yusuf is a Functional Movement Specialist and a Certified Personal Trainer from the American Council on Exercise, with a Bachelor’s in Sport & Exercise Science from the University of Central Florida, and a Holistic Lifestyle Coach Level 1 from the Certified Holistic Exercise Kinesiology (CHEK) Institute.

Even with a few degrees and certificates under his belt he still focuses on learning and growing by studying topics such as anatomy & physiology, biomechanics, kinesiology, and strength training. In addition, he continues his education by going to seminars, taking courses and meeting with the experts themselves.

Outside of his professional life Yusuf also reads, soaks up Vitamin D out in nature, meditates, has fun exercising, and loves to eat nutritious meals (with the occasional burger…no one’s perfect). He’s probably one of the few people you’ll ever meet who truly enjoys the taste of pickle juice and would rather be under the sun than in the shade.

To learn and master something we must model the experts in those fields. He’s done that in various areas, on top of his formal education.

He will show you how to conquer pain to gain pleasure just like he did!

Life is too short to be in pain!
