Who: Yusuf Myers
What: Yusuf Myers has always been a visionary who created a brand name for himself along with being one of the top innovators in the fitness industry. He is rated one of the top trainers in North America and can be found regularly in issues of Men’s Fitness magazine teaching America new exercises and how to work out safely and effectively. As a motivator and role model, Yusuf has a unique connection with his clients that stems from his own personal journey toward wellness.
Why: Myers’ clients range from professional athletes, entertainers and executives. Though his clientele may include celebrities, Yusuf does not hold his gift hostage to be paid by the highest bidder. Knowing his gift comes from discipline and a desire to teach others, his only requirement is that his clients be committed to achieving a better quality of life and refuse anything short of that for the rest of their lives.
In 2011, he was selected as 1 of 2 personal trainers in New York City to be featured on the nationally televised MTV show “I Used to Be Fat,” a weight loss show centered around childhood obesity.
