I’m Rushdhi Ismail. A computer engineer turned nutrition and life coach.
In 2014, I established leanandhealthy.me, and ever since, I’ve been helping 100s of people in more than 35 countries to get into the best shape of their lives.
Alhamdulillah, hundreds and thousands of people have benefitted from my 6-months nutrition coaching programme, numerous blog articles, free classes, free ebooks I’ve provided on the site.
The goal was then to help Muslims get leaner, stronger and healthier.
While I continue to coach people to become leaner and healthier, I have recognised that becoming lean and healthy is just one piece of a big puzzle.
It’s great to look and feel lean, strong and healthy, but life is much more than that. As Muslims, we’ve so many priorities. We’ve our duties towards our creator, ourselves, and our family and community.
How do we juggle all these and yet achieve excellence in our short time on this earth?
This question led me to the next stage in my life, where I spent a whole year becoming a certified life coach. And that’s when I decided to establish bestversions.me.
With Bestversions, my goal is to create a platform to help Muslims move from average to excellence in the four critically important areas of a Muslim.
So based on my 25+ years of experience and learning in the personal and spiritual development field, I’ve devised a framework called WELL to simplify and systemise my teaching.
The WELL framework is an acronym for Worship, Energy, Love, and Legacy! And with it, I attempt to create a holistic approach to move from average to excellence, bi’idnillah!
- Worship is about our relationship with our Rabb, which is exceptionally important for our Muslim identity.
- Energy is about our relationship with ourselves. The way we take care of our mind, body, and soul impacts all areas of our life.
- Love is about our relationship with our family. The Prophet ﷺ said the best of you is the one who is best to your family.
- Legacy is about our relationship with the world around us. Are we living a life that is worthy of leaving behind?
The beauty of this framework is it simplifies and incorporates all our roles, goals, and aspirations as Muslims. It also provides us with a smooth and manageable way to work on our best version, one step at a time and in a progressive manner.
In order to excel in these four areas, we need to energise our mind, body and soul so that we can go out and achieve incredible results in our life, bi’idnillah!
In Lean & Healthy, I primarily taught how to energise our bodies. However, in Bestversions, I teach how to take care of our bodies, minds and souls. That’s why I’ve decided to merge leanandhealthy.me into bestversions.me as it encompasses everything I taught in leanandhealthy.me and more!
Now, are you ready to embark on the best journey of your life and begin to live every day as the best you ever?
