I would just like to take the opportunity to tell you a little bit more about myself, my background, what brings me to Montreal, and what I can offer to the community.
First of all, I love fitness, leading an active lifestyle makes me the happy and well rounded individual that I have grown to be over the years. I believe that you can achieve your goals through natural means, without harmful substances; I will never advise anyone to take supplements, but I will help you build muscle or slim down through a sustainable and meaningful nutrition and training program. My goal is not to train you forever but to teach you to become a fitness lover and to have the knowledge and confidence to continue the journey on your own.
Originally I am from Mwanza, Tanzania, a beautiful city on Lake Victoria, where I grew up picking fresh mangoes from trees and climbing the massive boulders around the lake shore. Due to my aptitude for fitness and friendly nature, I got my first job as a trainer in Mwanza at a small local gym. After some time, I moved to Morogoro and worked for the first fitness club in that city before moving to Dar Es Salaam, the capital city of Tanzania, to work in a high-end fitness club in the city centre. I was eventually recruited to work for the United Arab Emirates military on a base near Dubai, where I helped create a fitness program for soldiers and other personnel on site. After that I went to work for Etihad Airway’s ‘Fit to Fly’ program, where I trained pilots and cabin crew and developed a fitness program for their staff. Since then I have been working as a freelance trainer and fitness instructor in Abu Dhabi, UAE. I enjoy freelance work because it allows me the flexibility I need to work with clients on an individual level. I can train people at their home, in their gyms, at work, or in the park. I aim to build positive, strong, and long-lasting relationships with my clients.
I recently relocated to Montreal with my wife, who works as a teacher. While it was very difficult to say goodbye to my clients in Abu Dhabi, some of whom I had been training for years; I am excited to meet new clients in Montreal and get to know this beautiful city. Since I just moved here, my French is very limited but I am working on it and I intend to learn as much as I can, but for now I can train clients in the following languages: English, Swahili, Sukuma, and basic Arabic.
I love to train outdoors, the air is better for you to breathe deeply, and when you are cold you are more likely to work out faster to stay warm, as well as cold weather can help you burn more calories. I have never experienced winter before so I will have to adjust to the temperature but my Canadian wife assures me that people still workout in minus degree temperatures, even in the snow!
Please feel free to email, call, or WhatsApp me for more information about training with me!
