Essa’s journey into the fitness world started in 2012 when he transformed his lifestyle, losing 70kg in three years. Now he is a motivational speaker, inspiring people around the world.
After being diagnosed as obese four years ago, Essa started his fitness campaign on social media – @FitnesswithEssa – and through his website.
Today he is touring schools around the UAE, spreading the message to both children and parents about the importance of healthy eating and being active. Essa was also the first Emirati speaker to kickstart the launch of Flow Talk Series, a healthy-eating and creative hub in Emirates Towers.
