Mike Rashid is an American fitness influencer who is active on YouTube, Instagram, TikTok and other social platforms. He was born on 14th March 1982 in the United States. He is known for posting fitness-related content on his social media.

Early life of Mike Rashid

Mike grew up alongside his parents and brothers. His father was a hardworking man who inspired his sons to participate in sports and stay fit. He would ask them to help with the housework and sign them up for several sports activities, such as swimming, running or boxing. Mike was passionate about the last one and started amateur boxing at a very young age. His first boxing matchup took time when he was just 12 years old. To keep up with his stronger opponents, Mike started to visit the gym regularly and work out.

Mike Rashid's boxing career

Mike participated in several boxing matches, earning a few bronze and silver gloves. Although he always ranked high, he still came to the gym because he wanted to win. Soon after, he won the National Golden Gloves twice in a row and earned one of the best positions in amateur boxing. Even though he started working out to win more boxing matches, Mike found himself enjoying bodybuilding. He enjoyed it so much that he decided to quit boxing and build a new career as a professional bodybuilder. When he was in his early 30s, Mike started to participate in bodybuilding shows and competitions. Since he knew his way around the gym, he ranked high in almost every match. After the first few initial tries, Mike became a World Beauty Fitness and Fashion Pro.

Mike Rashid on YouTube

Since he wanted to pass on his passion for fitness, Mike created his YouTube channel in 2011. His account includes primarily exercise routines, boxing tutorials and several fitness-related challenges. When it comes to exercise and workout routines, Mike likes to have a goal in front of him. He transferred this goal to one of his YouTube series, which is called Operation Beach Body. In this series, Mike usually cooperates with Melyssa ford, who is a Canadian media personality. Melyssa appears in this series as a female motivator since male and female bodies differ and need other types of exercises. Mike offered to help Melyssa with her training after she suffered an injury, and they decided to film the whole process.

Although Mike’s workout videos are helpful to a lot of people, some prefer to get in shape by doing a specific activity rather than working out. Since Mike is a former boxer, he offered to help by posting boxing tutorials, to help people understand the basic mechanics. Boxing is a very challenging activity and therefore helps people to lose weight and get in shape. His most popular video is Boxing For Beginners / Training Techniques episode 1, with over 9,6 million views.

Business plan of Mike Rashid

Mike’s motivation is to help as many people as he can by providing them with proper training techniques and nutrition advice. Since bodybuilding often requires special nutritional supplements, Mike decided to create his own brand. His supplements company is called IMTHEALPHA, and it is an excellent hit in the fitness industry. During the first two years, it became one of the most popular supplement brands, creating a million’s worth of business. Mike’s other business plan included lifestyle and training advice, which resulted in a company called The Alpha Academy. To offer people more elaborate advice without the need to complicatedly film and edit videos, Mike started his own audiobook called Overtraining. This audiobook has a similar theme to a podcast because Mike often invites other fitness influencers to chat with him and share their thoughts.
