Facts about me
I was born on the 1st of December 1983 in Uddevalla, Sweden.
That´s where me, my younger sister and brother all where born and raised.
My father is Tunisian and my mother is Egyptian. They both had moved to Sweden and were working in two different cities but found each other when they were travelling, just like me and my wife Emma, who first met in Germany. They later got together and settled down in Uddevalla where they still live and work.
Growing up in Uddevalla I played football in a local club and played as a scratch DJ in a Neo metal band with my friends. It was when we decided to split up the band that I had the time to do something else and that´s when I found the gym in 2003.
I was then interested in athletic fitness and started training at Westcoast Uddevalla where I heard about some people competing.
I didn´t end up competing in athletic fitness at all, instead I did Bodybuilding and won my first two shows in 2005, competing in the -70kg category.
I had found my sport and now I really wanted to see how far it could take me.
Said and done, four years ago in 2012 I told everyone about my dream and goal in the sport; I wanted to become a Ifbb Pro in the 212 category and now it was time to get to work and make that happen.
2016 I had a goal that this is gonna be the year that I will get it.
My first show and Pro qualifier for 2016 was Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio in the beginning of March and I did my last show three months after that in June; The Amateur Olympia in Marbella, Spain.
Eight shows later (6 pro qualifiers) I finally got the Pro card in Marbella!
A dream has come true and now I am training hard to get better and to get ready to compete with the big guys in the Pro League and along with some of my role models in the sport.
Follow me on my journey here and on my social media.
I really appreciate all the support!
