Every great achievement starts with a dream and a hyper active approach to conquer it. As a child, Mr. Riyaz Shaikh loved the sport of cricket, and other outdoor activities, while giving equal attention to his studies. His passion and zest for rigorous pursuits made him a thin and tanned kid. But these are the trophies of hard work. His dynamic agility also made him a subject to saddening social horrors like bullying, colorism, body shaming, etc. Because of such constant mocks, he was on the brink of turning into an upset and underconfident child. But whatever doesn't stop us, just makes us stronger. Through television, he started gaining new perceptions about athletes and their work. He acquired an unbendable aspiration, and an enthusiasm to be known for his triumphs. After he passed his 12th standard, he joined a gymnasium and started training, and health dieting. With consistent efforts and discipline, he gained a competent amount of muscles with the flexibility of an athlete.
Fueled by the inspiration of becoming like his idols, Riyaz Shaikh joined acting classes, en route to a modeling career. As his career began to take off through a few shows, he realized that his ambition has been misplaced from being an athlete to a model and an actor. His ultimate goal has always been athletics. So, he quit acting and started competing on some of the most famous and laudable international athletic platforms such as Sheru Classic, where he ranked 4th in the year 2019, and International Health, Sports, & Fitness Festival Olympia (IHFF), where he ranked 5th in both the years 2018 and 2019.
He gathered recognition through his commendable work and was offered the position of a brand ambassador at Spartan Sports Sciences Supplements, one of the leading sport nutrition supplement company of India. Currently, he works for various top-notch offline and online brands like Amazon, Flipkart, etc. His recent collaborations include a men's lifestyle & grooming product brand known as 'CHACHA LIFESTYLES'.
