Dr. Hashim was born and raised in Maryland and has a long history of physical fitness accomplishments. He lettered in cross-country and track and field in high school and completed his first full marathon at age 16. He continued to compete in cross-country in college and continued to compete in marathons. Once in medical school, he continued to increase his training and started competing in triathlons.
It wasn’t until after medical school that he developed an interest in power lifting and bodybuilding. He quickly became competitive in the sport and once held the Virginia
State deadlift record for the 148-weight class at 460 lbs. At age 47 he competed in his first body building competition at the Northern Kentucky NPC bodybuilding competition taking first place in the lightweight novice class. He followed this win with 2-second place finishes at the NPC Mid-Florida Classic and the Tim Gardner Extravaganza later that year.
Through out his life he has been heavily involved in nutrition and fitness. Now, in his mid fifties he still maintains a body fat percentage less than 10% year round by applying sound nutrition and weight training techniques. He is dedicated to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and is a great addition to the Trim Nutrition Medical Board.
