Bangkok-based Jamal wasn’t always the confident, accomplished trainer he is today. He was once a scrawny guy struggling to find his footing and something to channel his passions into. He took a risk, and made big strides, by learning Muay Thai fighting in Thailand, where he fought in 16 pro bouts.

It was when he embraced barbell training, though, that Jamal found the ideal outlet for his abilities, in a discipline where physical strength goes hand-in-hand with mental strength and confidence — benefits which barbell training delivers in spades.

Take the leap yourself – talk with Jamal about your strength goals today.

Learn More About Jamal

  • Jamal specializes in helping beginners build confidence and start their journey of strength training

  • Getting stronger through barbell work, and adding 20 kg of bodyweight improved Jamal’s physical health as much as his mental health and overall confidence

  • He has a love/hate relationship with the squat: He considers it the most important lift in a strength program, but it can be physically and mentally challenging when it gets too heavy – unless it results in a new PR!

  • He went to Thailand to practice Thai Boxing for a few months but ended up staying there and fighting 16 professional Muay Thai fights

  • He spends his free time reading Tolkien books, playing video games, and practicing public speaking as a Toastmaster

Jamal is originally from Switzerland but ended up living in Thailand to practice and fight Thai Boxing for a few years. Before he started boxing, Jamal was underweight, struggling with confidence, and frequently getting sick and injured. Dissatisfaction with his situation led him to Thai Boxing and ultimately to what became his passion, lifting weights.

He credits resistance training to his getting stronger and more resilient, and the resulting addition of 20 kg of bodyweight greatly improved his health and overall well-being. Jamal believes that the mental health benefits of resistance training and getting strong are just as important as the physical benefits.
