Nordine Zouareg is a French-American fitness personality, high-performance coach and author who has won Mr. France, Mr. Europe, Mr. World and Mr. Universe. He was a sickly infant, with a birth weight of two pounds. Poor health played a huge role in his childhood, resulting in a lot of spinoff problems, such as bullying. During his teens, he focused on becoming a gymnast, eventually finding bodybuilding and earning his first national title in 1985. He went on to win Mr. Universe twice - in 1986 and 1988. 

Today he is an author and promotes his “mind over body” philosophy.

  1. Follow your passion and it will release you from your anxiety.

  2. At the base of every mountain, there is someone willing to help you. Find that person or those people

Quote of the Week

“Inner fitness is simply the harmony or the equilibrium between the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual aspect of one’s self. When you have that in equilibrium, you have inner fitness.” -- Nordine Zouareg
