What Others Say || Reviews
I signed up to work with Hashim to learn more about proper form, and his methods and knowledge proved extremely effective. He’s extremely motivational and an outstanding trainer. My body fat dropped rapidly while my lean muscle mass grew. He pushed me beyond what I thought I was capable and was very encouraging along the way. Hashim made sure to educate me with the proper nutritional habits and workout form to carry forward on my own. Hashim started as a personal trainer for me and became a friend, and I look forward to working with Hashim in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to hit their fitness goals!
Hashim is a very professional and an extremely pleasant person to work with. I came to Hashim with a desire to compete in my first men’s physique competition. This is no easy task by any standard, diet and workout have to be entirely on point. Hashim did a great job educating me on the demands of such competitions, and preparing me for what I was about to get into. One thing I noticed right away is that I was very comfortable with him, and trusted his judgement. The training protocol I would say was really good; I was very pleased with the results. Hashim brought be a long and way really got me fired up about fitness, diet, and healthy living. Let me also just say I am not a vegan, and Hashim treated me no different, truly a great guy, and well educated in the fitness space.
‘A New Life’ – I am a very fortunate woman. I have been pressed against death’s door as a result of a life taking diagnosis. A healthy blood sugar number can vary between 70, and 150 according to our age. I am told that during my initial exam in emergency, I did not know my name, my address, the date or the name of our President of the United States. During initial exams, the medical team discovered that my sugar measured 1100! My pancreas was shutting down as a result of this dilemma. I was moved quickly to Intensive Care. This was the arena for the fight for my life. I missed some of this movie because of course I was not conscious. When I achieved consciousness several days had been spent. My children surrounded me and I tried to understand what had happened to me. I could not quite put the pieces together. For my cognitive ability was diminished by my circumstance. I did however hear the Doctor as he told my four children: “ I see that your mother has been quite a mover and a shaker in her life. However at this time she must focus on being a patient. I also understand that she lives alone However, at this time she cannot live independently. She will need care. Her diagnosis is Diabetes 2 and Pancreatitis Steroid Induced. She will need help managing her medication. She must take two types of insulin and she must have a total of 6 injections a day. Additionally, there is more medication that she must have to deal with for her diagnosis.” Sadness washed over me like a wave rushing to the sand. Hashim Mteuzi, my youngest son quickly said, “ That’s ok. I will take Mom home with me. I will start her on a vegan diet and I will monitor her exercise. I have been encouraging Mom to change her diet.” He turned to me and saw my tears. Very gently, he said to me, “Don’t cry Mom, we can beat this. We will beat this.” April 7, 2013 my son brought me to his home to recuperate. My vegan life style began that day. My exercise began the next morning. He worked hard to teach me. I worked hard to learn what he was giving me. My body responded. I lived with him for almost 6 months. During that time I was able to discontinue the insulin injections. Next, I was able to discontinue the insulin pills. 17 months and 36 pounds later I am strong, I am vigorous and I am grateful. Because of the patient teaching of my son, I have a new life. I will be forever grateful.”
I had the honor to work with Hashim and he is amazing! I was training for a beauty pageant and he knew exactly what I needed to do to prepare. As a result, I placed 2nd runner up and I thank him for helping me prepare my body for it! Def train with him!!!”
I have been working with Hashim and PPF for about four months now and I could not be happier with the results. I’ve lost about forty pounds and gained more core body strength than I’ve had in years! Hashim is an excellent trainer both in regards to his technical knowledge and his abilities as a motivator and a positive force in my life.
You’re Awesome! Thank you for getting me back on track!! I’m feeling great. 🙂
My wife and I did something we haven’t done in 3 years … We both went to the gym in the same week. Thank you Hashim (Vegan trainer to the rich and famous) for sending us our work out plan. Too bad our legs are too dead to walk up stairs.
I just wanted to share my experience of the last 10 months working out with Hashim Mteuzi of Plant Powered Fitness. First of all, I am down approximately 20 lbs. and at least 3 belt holes. Could be more because I had to buy a smaller belt… also had to buy a new wardrobe of pants! I have noticably gained muscle and definition as well as strength and mobility/range of motion. I’ve also had a wonderful bonding experience with my son who is working out with me in small group training. This all works because Hashim holds me accountable for my health and well being and is a true partner in my fitness. By the way, I’m 52 years old and Hashim is a pleasure to work with.
