His signature “Primal” classes uses functional movements and tires to blast your entire body—and boy does it work. Membership fees help out his charity geared towards fighting childhood obesity. Here’s what the father of four has to say about motivation and the best medicine…

Name: Amen Iseghohi Jr
Age: 36
Title: Owner and Founder of Amenzone Fitness and Amenzone Foundation
Married/Single: Married
Kids: 4 boys
Live: Paradise Valley, AZ

I’m inspired by…

My passion. I am intensely passionate about fighting the childhood obesity epidemic that plagues not just the Valley but the nation.

The perfect day would be…

A day spent with family, playing with my children and holding my newborn.

Favorite calorie-burner…

A Primal workout.

My fridge is always stocked with…

Fruits, veggies and the Isagenix product line.

One thing I cannot live without…

Comedy. I love a good laugh and believe laughter heals the spirit.

The one person who motivates me is…

My father, Amen Iseghohi Sr. There is a saying in Africa that you stand on the shoulders of your parents. My parents worked very hard to stand their children tall.

No sweat session is complete without…

Pushing the boundaries. You need to get out of your comfort zone to achieve success.

My motivation…

Is my desire to change the mindset of fitness in this generation. My philosophy is based on the fact that true healthcare is Selfcare. This comes from working from within 🙂

My stress relief…

Reading. I am an avid reader of philosophy and biographies. I enjoy reading on legendary figures that survived and prospered against the odds!

The best medicine…

Good nutrition! I truly believe you are what you eat. I’ve noticed that folks who maintained great eating habits always seem to be full of energy and the best life has to offer. Your food is your medicine.

I’m listening to…

Jay Z Can’t Knock the Hustle.

Best fitness/nutrition advice…

It’s simple. Stay consistent. Make it a lifestyle, not a goal.

Best habit…

I have a habit of planning my days the night before. This always starts my days off with clarity.

My fitness goal…

To be mentally and physically sharper than I was the day before. I recognize that I am my biggest competitor. My goal is to be the best that I can possibly be.

My healthy haven…

Amenzone followed by sushi at Pure Sushi.

Secret to happiness…

Find humor in anything. Life is to be lived and enjoyed. We often forget this in the rat race of life. Don’t sweat the small stuff, champ!

Never…

EVER focus on the mistakes of yesterday! Look to the opportunities ahead. My mother Josephine told me if you run looking backwards, you will fall into the hole ahead of you. We must focus on the great opportunities that await us!

    As one of Amenzone’s first members starting at the 525 Downtown Phoenix location, I am proud of the successes Amenzone has had as it approaches its 4th year in business. With Amen’s passion for fitness, motivational leadership style and a personal foundation that was built around a tire (both physically and mentally) I look forward to the legacy Amenzone will leave in the lives of us all.
