Working Out At Home: With Armin Navabi

Professional Novice with Ali A. Rizvi

You're lazy. You have little motivation. You don't want to go to the gym. And you're stuck at home in these COVID-19 times. But you want to be healthy and look good. Is that even possible? Armin Navabi — the controversial Iranian-Canadian atheist activist whose organization, Atheist Republic, has over 2 million followers and counting — describes himself as all of those things, but has also gotten totally jacked these last few months while the rest of us piled on the pounds. What's more, he did it with minimal to no equipment. No gym membership required. What you may not know about Armin is that his success is rooted in a unique strength: pushing the boundaries of what's possible, and always asking "Why not?" instead of "Why?"  The best news of all? He promises that you can do it too, and is ready to spill his secrets.

Armin Navabi with Mubin Shaikh

The Drew Marshall Show

In 2011, Armin Navabi founded the online freethought community Atheist Republic, a Canada-based non-profit organisation with consulates in several countries worldwide such as Mexico, Malaysia, South Africa and the Philippines, giving voice to over one million fans and followers and is dedicated to offering a community for atheists around the world to share their ideas and meet like-minded individuals. He is also the author of the best-selling book Why There Is No God and became a co-host of the Secular Jihadists from the Middle East podcast with Ali A. Rizvi, Yasmine Mohammad, and Faisal Saeed Al Mutar. Armin was born and raised in the Islamic Republic of Iran and was indoctrinated thoroughly in the Muslim tradition. Armin’s journey led him to leave Islam and becoming an atheist. Wanting to reach out to others like himself, Armin continues to examine religion as well as the notion of God and interact with others to engage in thought-provoking and educational discussion.
