My fitness story started off like many others. I played a lot of sports pretty much all my life, but in 2009, I started taking weight training seriously. I ran into trouble when I started ignoring the minor aches and pains I began experiencing.

Instead of resting and rehabbing, I made a mistake many people do; I worked through the pain. As a physical therapist, I knew better, but I loved lifting. After doing this for a few months, I reached a point where my body was just broken down.

I had Achilles tendonitis, patellar tendinitis, minor hernia, shoulder sprain, partially torn triceps tendon, and a severe wrist sprain.

Eventually I could not work out without pain, so, I stopped lifting. I stopped being active. I stopped caring about my diet. I was frustrated and defeated.

I ate whatever I could get my hands on. Slowly but surely, I began gaining body fat. By the end of 2011 I reached a point where I could not deny that I was fat.

I had a reputation of being fit and active. I was ashamed of what I had become. So, I decided to get in my best-ever shape. That is when I decided to enter the $100K Transformation Challenge on

I wanted my transformation to be an example to others, showing them that you can make a change naturally and without extreme strategies… Mission accomplished!

Since winning the contest, I have fully adopted the fitness lifestyle. This is my passion. I hope, given the opportunity, we can work together to reach your individual fitness goals. If you want more than a trainer, look no further than #DrHalidFit!
