Sherif El Shafei - Inspirational Story

 How did it start

“It all started when I decided to take care of my body shape in 2003 when I was 21 years old and I didn’t know where exactly to start, so I just went to a gym near my home and paid the membership fees which was 70 LE per month.” Said Sherif.


From 65 kilograms weight, and 185 cm length he started his journey

“I was very skinny, I am the kind of body that takes so much time to gain weight and lose them again so easily, it took me ages to see my first muscle and that was the day I started loving this sport.” He continued.

Confusion about which opinion to follow, which one is myth and which one is real?

“The problem was that I used to hear different opinions from each and every trainer I asked, so I decided to read more about this sport just to help myself get better results. In 2008 my body started to improve gradually, it looked shredded and I started to see real muscles, so I decided again to take it to the next level and start working out professionally, so I decided to study and learn more and more until I had that amount of information to enable me to look like a real physique/bodybuilder.” He added.
