Muhammad coaches the weightlifting club when he is in town. When he is out of town he is training with the Uzbekistan National Weightlifting team. He is currently training for the 2016 Olympic in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Muhammad has competed for a number of years at the highest level of weightlifting. He is very excited to share his knowledge with both novice and advanced lifters. Begaliev was able to merge his two favorite physical activities and loves nothing more than sharing his passion with other athletes. When he’s not talking about the dangers of modern-day running shoes, you can catch him going on and on about his other love, nutrition. Seriously, don’t get him started!
