Misbah Haque is the creator and host of The Airborne Mind Show, a podcast that broadcasts conversations with thought leaders in the fitness industry to thousands of listeners. He does a series called, Miz Unfiltered, where we freely explore Miz’s thoughts on almost anything from fitness to creativity and beyond. Misbah enjoys connecting ideas and exploring different ways of thinking.
He is a professional fitness coach for Revival Strength, home of Functional Bodybuilding. Outside of the gym, Misbah is a stand up comedian, who will nerd out on the bolts of creativity with you. Along with The Airborne Mind Show, Misbah is a co-host for The Unfiltered Human (w/ Dr. Megan Kaden), where they explore relationships, connection, and human behavior. He hosts a third podcast called Look Good Move Well, with Marcus Filly, creator of Functional Bodybuilding and 6x CrossFit Games Athlete. They talk about avoiding burnout, keeping your passion alive for training, and fueling your body and mind so you can look good, move well now and for years to come.
His use of fitness is to enhance the quality of life in all the other things the world has to offer outside of the gym. He applies the qualities of curiosity and depth of connection that he uses in his interviews to his coaching clients as well, blending art and science into a deep relationship that serves to optimize his athletes’ potential.
In 2014, Misbah sustained a back injury that emotionally and mentally sidelined him from his training, as well as daily tasks. He remembers the pain he used to get from simple movements like getting out of the car. He realized that sustainability and longevity meant continuing to be resilient, durable, and steadily improving with a bigger picture in mind. He then went down the rabbit hole of learning about movement, and developed a drive to talk to top coaches, athletes and anyone who was willing to offer a new lens to expand his thinking.
Misbah loves to use his creativity to recognize patterns, link ideas together, and see how aspects of his athletes’ lives are connected. By sparking curiosity in others, Misbah inspires a holistic approach to health, wellness, and fulfillment that optimizes overall performance in life and fosters a sense of trust and connectedness through coaching.
