After working with Ali for a couple months I am very satisfied and happy with his service. He not only got me ready for my photoshoot but he also gave me a friendly nudge to compete again where I took second place and coached me through that as well. He saw potential in me that I didn’t think I had anymore. He was attentive, knowledgeable and his communication skills were nothing less then great. He explained and taught me the process he was bringing me through. Any questions or concerns he answered and made me feel better about the process. I have nothing but good things to say about Ali and I look forward to working with him again when he coaches me into my next show!
I first saw Ali at the gym during his prep for a competition back in 2018 and decided to approach him to ask if he would be willing to coach me. I have been working with him for the past 2.5 years and I can proudly say that these have been the best 2.5 years of progress for me, despite having been a gym rat for 20 years before that. This goes to show how important it is to have a coach that makes one accountable, puts themselves in your shoes, and manages your nutrition, workout plans and supplementation as per the goals you have in mind. These are all the things that I found in Ali. He has the passion to coach, make his client successful and he has this drive 24x7x365 days. He is always updating himself, always excited to share his knowledge, always reasons out the decisions made, does not beat around the bush, is open to hear out the client(most important factor!!) and is always looking to make his client's journey fun. Working with Ali has improved my thinking and mindset that goes into incorporating all aspects of fitness in my daily lifestyle. He has never left me hanging with responding to questions I might have(and I have a LOT OF THEM) and always has a Ninja turn around time with check in responses! All in all I am happy that I took the first step in reaching out to him at a time when he was deep into his prep, usually that is the time he is low in energy and talks less...LOL! If You Know, You Know 🙂
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Ali throughout my 17-week prep. His care and attention to detail was impeccable from the outset. Ali really takes the time to get to know your body and your preferences prior to making a plan, which is different from other coaches I have worked with. No cookie-cutter diets, he pays attention to what works for you and your body, making adjustments as needed. Ali was also available for questions and got back very promptly with answers. Although this was not too necessary, as his protocols and instructions are very detailed and planned to a tee. We were able to have a very successful and issue-free prep together. As truly amazing as the end result was, the process throughout was made as easy and smooth as possible with Ali's guidance. I have recommended him to many people I know who are in search of either a lifestyle or prep coach. Thank you so much Ali for all your hard work and dedication! I'm still in awe of the results we were able to accomplish together.
I'm kind of embarrassed to post this because when I sent @ali.h.siddiqui those first pictures I had identified as being pretty fit. It’s all part of the journey though and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about. I was fit! But I had a poor relationship with food and often ate out of poor mood and boredom. I felt like I couldn’t control my eating because I would go through fazes of motivation, not eat enough, not see results, think “screw it” then overeat and I repeated this cycle for years. Although you can’t see this in a picture, my definition of self is completely different. Ali taught me that it’s self care to eat healthy and I am worthy of the body I want. I learned that eating healthy food is essential to being happy, where as binging and starving myself just makes me feel out of control. Obviously he got my training cleaned up to improve my weak points and proportions. I’ve grown a lot since meeting Ali and I’m so grateful and lucky to have him as my coach. Can’t wait to see what else we can do together
