Hashim Mteuzi

Orinda, CA 94563

Hashim was born and raised in Oakland, CA. While growing up, he played American football and studied the martial art of Capoeira. At the age of 18, he became a vegetarian after identifying meat consumption as the cause of his then, respiratory issues.  Since then, he's put his athletic background and affinity for nutrition to good use - he was awarded first place in a NGA Natural Body Building competition, is an accomplished NASM Trainer and Weight Loss Specialist, and is an inspiring group TRX, BOSU, and Nike Training Club Instructor.

In 2013, Hashim decided to take it all to another level launching Plant Powered Fitness, and converting to veganism.  He has evolved to living an ethical, environmental-friendly, and healthy lifestyle through plant based food.  His philosophy is energy from nourishment, not stimulation.

Recognized amongst his peers as the foremost authority on plant-based nutrition, Hashim not only helps his clients achieve their fitness goals, but to evolve as human beings.

    I have been working with Hashim and PPF for about four months now and I could not be happier with the results. I've lost about forty pounds and gained more core body strength than I've had in years! Hashim is an excellent trainer both in regards to his technical knowledge and his abilities as a motivator and a positive force in my life.

    I had signed up to work with Hashim to learn more about proper form, and his methods and knowledge proved extremely effective. He's extremely motivational an an outstanding trainer. My body fat dropped rapidly while my lean muscle mass grew. He pushed me beyond what I thought I was capable and was very encouraging along the way. Hashim made sure to educate me with the proper nutritional habits and workout form to carry forward on my own.

    Hashim started as a personal trainer for me and became a friend, and I look forward to working with Hashim in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to hit their fitness goals!

    I had the honor to work with Hashim several times at 24 hour in walnut creek and he is amazing! I was training for a beauty pageant and he knew exactly what I needed to do to prepare. As a result, I placed 2nd runner up and I thank him for helping me prepare my body for it! Def train with him!!!

    I had the opportunity to be part of Hashim's small group training Bosu Breakthrough class at 24 hour fitness Walnut Creek. The group training sessions were both challenging and fun. He actually had me looking forward to 6am workouts which is pretty impressive all on it's own. Hashim was able to tailor the workout to various fitness levels which is why I would recommend him to anyone interested in a knowledgeable trainer. (On a side note, his workout mixes were awesome!)

    Hashim was my personal trainer at 24 hrs Fitness in Walnut creek. He is an excellent trainer. I wanted to work on abs only. He did not mind to give me abs sessions only. He also showed me different work outs that includes abs and aerobics. He is pretty good and seems to have a passion to train people. I will take more sessions with him in the future. I highly recommend him. Bernadete Braga
