    Shihab is the best thing that happened to me recently. I've been trying to gain weight for years, but now with this gem of a man I was able to reach my ideal weight and have fun while doing it I look forward to our sessions everytime! Ever since I started with Shihab I've been on top form, good food and regularly exercising. He definitely motivates and "push beyond your limit" - Shihab. To add, he helps out outside of work hours. Making sure I'm sticking to good nutrients and a healthy lifestyle. Highly recommend!

    It was a really good experience with Shihab as he has a lot of knoweldge in fitness and nutrition. I lost like a lot of fats and gained good muscles training with him for last 3-4 months and he motivated me during the training and outside the gym as well. I would like to recommend to people who is willing to work hard should meet him and achieve their goals. Although his texts can be surprising sometimes, he is a fun and awesome guy to hang around with.

    My experience training with Shihab is hardly summed up by a five star review. Shihab's positivism and attitude towards health and fitness carries over to all aspects of your life when you work out with him. Shihab is very knowledgeable about diet and physiology and is constantly switching things up. His motivational texts and positive attitude are awesome and really help to keep you on track, motivated and excited (even for a 5 am workout)! When working out with Shihab you are more than just a client, you are an athlete and a friend.
