Khali grew up a skinny energetic kid with asthma that almost lost his leg playing sports during my adolescent life in Houston Texas. A few years after graduating from high school he decided he didn't want to be skinny any longer so he started eating everything in site do to my fast metabolism. In the process of eating everything he went from my high school weight of 165 at 6'2 to 275 pounds. As he gained weight he did push ups and worked out here and there as to not let things get to far out of control but it didn't help much because he was a binge eater. Finally he decided that something had to change because if he went up a flight of stairs he was gasping for breath do to cigarette smoking, asthma, and being overweight. On top of that every time that he went down to tie his shoes his stomach got in the way and made him hold my breath or gasp over such a simple task. He couldn't stop smoking cigarettes no matter how hard he tried so he prayed one night for God to help stop smoking because he couldn't stop on his own. He broke him down in tears that night but the next day he didn't have a taste for a cigarette. He thought it was to good to be true so He decided to test it and buy a pack. He tried to puff on one cigarette and it tasted so disgusting to him that he threw the pack away. He thanked the Lord and from this day he decided to get more healthy. He knew that he had to beat that asthma first and knew that it was a breathing disorder so he taught myself how to breath through my nostrils while he jogged with water in my mouth. It was so difficult from the beginning and he couldn't even do a mile. He would take a hot shower afterwards and feel his chest burning while he was spitting up phlegm and mucus down the drain. That did not stop him though! He went the next day and the next day eventually reaching 5 miles with water in his mouth the whole time until he finally outran and beat having asthma. He got rid of all of his pumps and machines and started working out utilizing calisthenics. This was a daily challenge because it was so difficult cutting down his food portions while strength training and doing cardiovascular workouts. He kept this up for 5 months and before he knew it he went from 275 pounds to 215. He vowed to himself that he would help others that have issues with their health and fitness and never live without working out or let my eating habits get out of hand again.
"In 2013 I decided to take my body to another level and with the help of Advocare natural nutrition supplements I started competing in the NPC,National Physique Committee. In this past year competing I have taken my body to a level that has allowed me to compete and win against some of the greatest physiques in the Nation. I went to Miami November 22,2014 to compete at the last National show of this year in attempts to attain a Pro Card which will allow me to compete against physique pros world wide. I thank God for giving me the strength, focus, and
determination to accomplish all that I have, my daughter for being my motivation, all the people like my family, my fit family, the Franks, my friends and anyone that has helped me get to the level that I am at now. Thank you", said Khali.
