Internationally-acclaimed celebrity fitness guru, trainer, coach and instructor who is also a former wushu champion Asif Butt, is the only Pakistani and Muslim in the elite list of top 10 global fitness trainers as per renowned American publication TopTeny.
He may have a lot of attributes and qualities but the one standing out the most for us is the fact that he’s consistent and passionate and we feel that it’s his consistency and passion only that has propelled him towards superstardom and tasting immense success on the way.
Asif made history for himself as well as for the country when he was listed among the top 10 fitness trainers by an American online magazine TopTeny. The website sort out top 10 professionals in every field in the world and list them out in its website after thorough research, which found Asif as one of the best in business.
After saying adieu to wushu, Asif turned to fitness trainer and has for the last couple of years providing fitness training to people of all walks of life including celebrities, who wish to be in shape.
Butt has specific expertise in strength training, high intensity interval training, functional training and Tai Chi and posture transformation.
Those who have sought training from Butt, call him “the guru”. Their bodies, lives and style of living have been completely transformed by him, a credit he humbly accepts.
“If people are trusting me with their lives, it is binding upon me to deliver, to make them happy, to pull them out from shadows of unhealthy living and breathe life into their positivities,” he Asif Butt said.
Butt says the three rules he has lived by all his professional life are never stop learning new techniques and upgrading your knowledge base, set goals at a global level and not in your immediate peer group and lastly, never give up on a student.
“Allah has blessed all of us with great machines which are our bodies. We just need the right guidance, strength and functional training to carve out a master piece,” he maintained.
Butt said eating half of a grapefruit before each meal can lower levels of insulin, a fat-storage hormone, which can lead to weight loss. Because grapefruits are loaded with water, they keep you hydrated and satisfied, helping you eat less. Plus, the fruit contains fat-burning enzymes, categorising it as a weight-loss superfood. And because it takes more energy to digest this fruit, it helps you burn more calories. This fruit powerhouse also is a good source of protein, vitamin C, folic acid and potassium. Cook the cod here in the microwave and mix in the grapefruit and vegetables for a quick and healthy one-dish meal.
