Taking Charge of Your Health


What’s up you guys? My name is Raif Derrazi. Welcome to my channel. Here I will be talking about my experience living with HIV as well as my passion for fitness: namely, natural physique bodybuilding and just becoming an all-around better person. My journey started six years ago on my birthday 2012 when I was diagnosed with AIDS. Not just HIV, but full-blown AIDS. Which means that my immune system was completely compromised at that point. From there, I decided that I was no longer gonna be the victim of my own life and that entailed me taking back the reins. And that started and materialized through fitness. I started working out all the time until the point where someone picked me out at the gym. He ended up becoming my personal trainer, my coach. He’s the one that introduced me to natural bodybuilding. And so I began my journey as a natural physique bodybuilder. Just this year, I received my pro card in INBA. It’s a global federation for natural bodybuilders. So I will be continuing my journey there. And at the same time I’m really focusing on how to make sure that not only am I healthy physically, but also emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. And so I will be sharing all those things with you guys as I learned them as they go through them. Show you not only the good stuff, not only the things that I’ve conquered and managed to overcome, but the things that I’m going through in the moment. So that we can create a community where hopefully my experiences inform and inspire your own. And hopefully I can have a good impact on you guys. Maybe you’ll learn something. Maybe you’ll be a little entertained. But overall I’m hoping that you’ll walk away from my channel as a better person. So please if you feel like this is something that would interest you, go ahead and start watching my videos. Like them if you like them. Subscribe if you want to stay notified as to when new videos get posted. They’ll be happening frequently. And also, please feel free to share with anyone else who might also find this useful. Alright, peace you guys! See you soon. Cheers.

  13. Hi mate. Quick question, loving the bodybuilding background I’m a big gym lover myself. Do you find it more difficult to put on weight being HIV positive? Obviously a factor when trying to add mass, do you find you have to eat more food?

  14. Raif, I feel you are a beautiful man with a huge heart and spirit of light. …. and I think you've discovered an important part of your vocation in setting up this, your channel. Shine bright, mate.

  15. Brother I want to know that how you told about this situation to your parents and now what is point of view they use.
    Sorry for bad English bro.

  16. Hey Raif, I’ll continue to watch your videos since I’ve been diagnosed positive 2 days ago. Really need the support….

  18. Hey buddy I hope you are having a great spring,…..you are always in my feed…..and I smile at your beautiful smile. You would TOTALLY be mine boyfriend if you were in Chicago lol….anyways,…. Im jealous of the lucky guy who gets to hug you in bed.
