Saiid became an International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness Professional
in July 2013 and has since achieved elite professional athlete status.
Growing up in Sierra Leone, Africa, he became interested in bodybuilding when I
was 5 years old. "My mother gave me a t-shirt of the Incredible Hulk and I told her
when I grew up I wanted to be as big as him. When I turned 14 years old, I started
lifting weights." He placed an emphasis on cardio and calisthenic workouts, and also
did bench presses on wooden benches and used manufactured weights made with rims from
cars loaded with cement and pipes. He even did chin-ups with pipes attached to mango
trees. Saiid's passion and obsession drove his determination.
"I competed in Sierra Leone, but it was not as structured as modern day
competitions, and I began my professional career after I moved to the United States.
My first event was at the National Physique Committee (NPC) Philadelphia Classic in
2002. After competing in over 30 NPC shows and 3 national shows. I received my
pro-card in July of 2013 at the NPC Team Universe after winning the heavyweight class
and the overall competition championship."
The first professional bodybuilder from Sierra Leone and among the few
professional bodybuilders in the continent of Africa. His goal is to one day be on the
Olympia stage, among the best-of-the-best in the world of bodybuilding.
"I have used ASEA products and can attest to its impact on my improved
performance, endurance, and recovery as a professional bodybuilder. It helps prevent
me from cramping while preparing for bodybuilding shows. Cramping can be a major
deterrent to maximum performance. After using different products, I was most
impressed with ASEA and the benefits toward reaching my maximum performance goals.
Furthermore, I have the character, social media presence, community presence, and
elite athletic background to represent ASEA in the utmost professional manner."
Saiid is currently studying physical therapy, and with his wife owns and operates

language and can read Braille. He is also one step away from earning a black belt in Tae Kwon
