As Ako said, “I won the Swedish Championship in Athletic Fitness three times and came 2nd place at the European Championship and won the World Championship IFBB”. Making Ako a highly recognized fitness model and athlete.

“I saw a few guys at my old gym that were training for a competition and there was one guy with great physique and I told myself one day I´ll be like that, so my journey began there!”


Initial Motivation

Ako Rahim, a fitness celebrity of Swedish descent, began his martial arts training when he was just 6 years old. He continued to practice karate and Thai boxing for many years after that. He didn’t start taking bodybuilding seriously until he was 15 years old.

He began weight training first to build up his body for martial arts, but as Ako noted, “I truly liked it, and I chose to do my first physical fitness competition four years later.”

For the first time, Ako participated in the Swedish Nationals and finished a respectable fourth. He continued to compete three more times after this.

Ako has participated in a variety of sports since he first found success in competition, including “running, swimming, submission wrestling, and especially CrossFit.”

“The big mistake I see is that lots of people use extra weights and machines when they’re training abs. You don’t have to use more weight than your body. There are many exercises that you can do slower and with more control to make it more challenging.”


Ako learned the value of utilizing the proper weight when exercising over the years he spent training in several disciplines.

Ako complained that he sees far too many individuals utilizing large weights when, if done correctly, body weight can occasionally suffice.

Having said that, Ako has subsequently improved and now follows the advanced weight-training regimen that is shown below.
