Jamil Abiad got his start as a Canadian basketball player. Today, he’s a Professional Basketball Trainer, coach, mentor, motivational speaker, and influencer with Under Armour Canada. His list of accomplishments is just as long.
He says it’s his dedicated approach of syncing his mind and body that gave him both the strength and mental stamina to push himself to get better.
With unique training methods, today, he coaches and guides youthful basketball stars in their quest to take their game to the next level. But, it’s not just a game when you get involved with Jamil’s programs. He believes in his players being well-rounded and requires them to not only keep good grades but also to volunteer and give back by doing 20 hours of volunteer work during the basketball season. He’s as dedicated to his players as he expects them to be. In return, he’ll help them reach their full potential and thrive both on and off the court.
One aspect of his life, other than the time he spent playing basketball professionally, is that he’s had the opportunity and privilege to work with elite athletes, coaches, and top trainers. The exposure to such varied experience and expertise has served him well. Today, he’s a well-respected coach and has made a name for himself in the Ottawa and Eastern Canadian region.
Whether you’re involved in his 1:1 coaching or team coaching via his NL Fitness programs, or part of his Team Believe program, you can’t go wrong with Jamil’s insight and strength when it comes to the basketball court.
He’s gone above and beyond to make a difference. He’s not only teaching youth, he’s helping make an impact by leading the way through motivational speaking, and by being a mentor with NBYMP. The National Basketball Youth Mentorship Program is a non-profit group that provides youth with guidance, training, programs, and workshops. They aim to help kids under 19 with everything from financial literacy to sports psychology to personal and spiritual development.
Another area Jamil’s name is getting known for is via his work with Under Armour. He’s both an influencer and a Rising Star “Instructor” with them. He’s also available for media coverage. If you’d like to know more about how to grow exposure, get personal sport highlight tapes, or sporting event coverage, his company Next Level Media is the site to visit.
Being a well-rounded individual is something he teaches his students, as well as helping them understand that with life comes balance, and a balanced life makes for a happier life. He helps his students see that dreams are attainable with hard work and dedication. By setting goals and going after them, anything is possible. Just like basketball player Kevin Madiamba, Swiss Olympic hopeful, it’s all about knowing how to stay focused on your goals. Get to know more about Jamil Abiad today—Professional Basketball Trainer.
