Motivational Speaker Faisal Alshawa is the Founder of Believe Nutrition.

With a history of working with world-class football teams such as NK Lokomotiva, Kuwait, and Qatar National Football Teams, Faisal utilizes his unique skill set as an evidence-based performance coach to motivate overworked and exhausted professional athletes and corporate clients to live healthier, more goal-orientated lives.

He does this through his nutrition consultancy, mobile app, mindset book "Fill Your Mind Before You Fill Your Plate", and in-person motivational talks.

Faisal’s well-being programs and motivational talks are individualized and adaptable to corporate wellness programs, whereby empowering people to live healthy, happy, and confident lives through daily acts of mindful choices are understood to positively impact employee productivity and retention.

His motivational talks are rooted in "mindset", yet backed up by science, having earned a BS in Kinesiology from the University of Maryland, and an MSc in Sports & Exercise Science from Loughborough University, one of the best sports science universities in the U.K.

At the core of Faisal's messaging, he promotes discipline, passion, and commitment to goals, without which no individual, athlete or corporation can be successful.
