Early life and education of Omar Isuf

Omar grew up as an active child who managed to succeed in everything. Throughout high school, he was known for achieving straight A’s on his exams and completing all the assignments. But even though he was an exemplary student, he always found time to play outside and have fun. Actually, he took part in several sports activities, such as soccer and baseball. For a brief moment, he even participated in martial arts since he found them interesting and challenging. Speaking of sports, Omar had an idol growing up because his mother was a professional sprinter.

Since he had no problem keeping up with high school subjects, he decided to study two majors at college. His fields of interest were business economics and concentration finance. Even though he managed to pass all his exams, Omar started to realize that a double major is a little too time-consuming. He didn’t have time to participate in training, and after some time, he had to quit all his out-of-school activities. His sedentary lifestyle started to show, and Omar noticed that he was out of shape. Since he didn’t want to lose all those years of training, Omar didn’t hesitate and joined the university gym.

He was fascinated by professional athletes and fitness models, who could change their own appearance in just a couple of months. He enjoyed working out and training other people so much that he decided to become a personal trainer full-time. This decision led to him quitting school, as he had another career path in mind.
