Master Mehrdad states “I strongly believe there is much confusion in America about how to properly exercise the body and the importance of proper nutrition. As a world class fighter and Martial Art expert, I had the honor of training with some of the greatest Masters, Grandmasters and Muay Thai trainers around the world and I can easily tell you that being in shape means to feel great, to be full of energy, and to be completely healthy from the inside out. It’s important to spiritually awaken yourself and understand that gaining muscle is vital to maintaining good health and a working metabolism. You cannot go by the scale when training in my program and my students must dedicate themselves to a lifestyle change in order to succeed. You must let go of bad habits, bad food and any people or routines that may lead you back to unhealthy habits. If you are ready to transform your body and your life, you must mentally prepare yourself for this transformation and prepare to lose bad fat, gain new muscle, and become a new rejuvenated person.”
