"Growing up I witnessed how lack of adequate activity, poor food choices and unhealthy lifestyle choices affected my mother's life. As far back as I can remember my mom was always on a cocktail of medications.
By the time my mother was in her mid 40’s, she had already survived colon cancer and 2 strokes. She also had high blood pressure, high cholesterol and fluctuating weight problems. She went into early menopause, had severe sleep apnea, and was diagnosed with osteoporosis.
At 52 years old my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 lung and bone cancer. Two months later she suffered from a minor heart attack and four months after that, my mom lost her battle with cancer on New Year's Eve. She took her last breath holding my hand.
Every health and weight problem my mother suffered through could have been reversed, reduced, prevented and even eliminated with adequate exercise, proper nutrition and, healthier lifestyle choices.
And as a 47-year-old man who, myself, has fully recovered from transverse myelitis, completely healed and gotten back into exercise after extensive knee surgery, and have survived and recovered from a stroke. I know first hand how being healthy and fit and can literally save you from the detrimental effects of health problems that may happen in our lives, especially after 40.
Now, more than ever is the time to take your health and wellness seriously. There’s no need for another women or man to suffer through similar health and weight issues as my mother did. There’s no need for another person to have injuries and health problems they can’t recover from and for that, I am living proof.
I know that determination, habit change, consistency, commitment, accountability, on-going support and a “whole body” health and fitness program like we have at Tafiq's Physiques can help you get the body and health that you want and deserve."
