Farouk Houssein


After years of high school sports, Farouk found high-intensity interval training as a way to push himself physically and mentally. In 2013, Farouk competed as an alternate on the Reebok CrossFit Games team which finished 5th place in the world. Farouk served as a NYFD firefighter for a brief stint. Now, instead of fighting fires, he's kicking your butts (with a smile!)

Fun Fact: As a kid, Farouk wanted to be a Power Ranger.

Farouk's Playlist

Farouk loves to listen to anything upbeat to get amped to crush his workouts. He shares Plato's view that music brightens our world: “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
