About The Six-K Club

[rockyou id=61260303&w=600&h=200]

For my entire life, I've struggled with my weight, until finally one day I decided to do something about it. Since then, it's been my mission to lose weight and be healthy. I ran a minimum of 3 miles a day and lost 100 plus pounds. Running became my best friend. Throughout this personal challenge, I had a vision. I wanted to create an environment where people can meet, network, talk, and have a good workout. I wanted to use my story and challenges to get through to others.


I created the Six-K Club, as a tool to inspire other people in similar situations. People on a diet, people planning to go on a diet, people who are just into running, people who like taking long walks and sweating a little, people who are young, old, men & women, local and foreign. The Six-K Club is a place were everyone can come together for the purpose of changing their lifestyle, and motivating the rest to do the same.


This is a place where no one is skinny, no one is fat, no one is cute and no one is ugly, we are just getting together to have a good time and sweat a little while we're doing it.

The Six-K Club is totally free! Just come and join us and have fun! T-shirts, Stickers, Water Bottles are always on us, all you have to bring is yourself, a friend if you like of maybe an iPod.


Hope to see you here soon.

  18. Nouri says:

    hey man cool thing that you are doing
    when i can start to with you guyz ??

  19. Warda says:

    Great job and incentive to others.

    I wouldnt mind doing the same thing in Oman, but i think it would have to be gender segregated though the younger generation wouldnt mind as much

  20. Nouri: Register to our mailing list and show up ! its that easy.

    Warda: O-Man 😀

  21. Shimo says:

    Hello All Hello six-k Clup
    Its really new and amazing things to be able to lose this weight its a great idea 🙂
    u look soooooo diff after losing all this kilos i hope i can do that one day i think i will never be able to lose them even i need that really to be nice for my self and my husband 😉 any way keep on Good work i Registerd and am waiting for that meeting 🙂

  22. Shimo: Thank you 😀

  23. Warda says:

    Oh-man! is an understatement. 🙂

    Society or culture really gets in the way of anything remotely open-minded that the younger generation would like to do.

  24. Warda: a few “younger generation” with good minds get together and slowly we will change our world to be better, more accepting, understanding, truly diverse. Hopefully one day.

  25. Noura Ahmed says:

    mashallah 3alaik… God bless !! yalla get me a shirt oo bottle… I’M in 🙂

  26. Dalal says:

    Jasim

    Your the best !! trust me … you will really motivate all of us to start hitting the roads . i salute you and here is a cheer for you ( hip hip hooray )

  27. Dalal: ARTHAUS GALLEY please 😉 …

  28. stone says:

    liberals. 😮

  29. MG says:

    I noticed from the pics. that all members are young men and a few young women all below 25. Would it be awkward to have an above 35 non-national married working mom with 2 kids join you?……please be frank about it…it will take a lot of guts to be seen amongst such a hip looking group, being the odd looking one.

    MG: contrary to your belief, we are a wide mix of people we have the young 18 year old hip looking kid, and the older college professor, we’ve had men and women old and young and their pets too join us. Also, don’t forget that not all people like their pictures taken so don’t let the “posted” pictures decieve you, there’s alot more happening when the camera isn’t rolling. Hope to see you soon!

  30. Nick says:

    Hey Jassem –
    Great Motivation! At present am in Iraq putting on weight with all the Steaks and Beers, lemme get back to Downtown Kuwait I shall surely join you!

    In the meantime I shall enjoy a couple of more beers before the sweat work actually begins!

    Once again – great motivation factor!
    n…

    Nick: sounds great buddy, normally i would tell you to stay off the beer, but since i’m in Kuwait now all i’m gona say is 😀

  31. fahad says:

    thanx 6k club it was fun

    Fahad: I’m glad you had fun! See you next time, inshalla 😀

  35. Anwar(bo reem) says:

    Great Idea bro… 😉

    You always wanted to make a difference..i think you are now…you are inspiring alot of people…its is really nobel of you to dedicate part of your time to help others. God Bless! 🙂

    Cousin: Congratulation on the baby i have to come and see her soon, thank you for the kind words buddy!

  36. Khalid says:

    Today was the first time I join you guys after hearing a lot about you guys. Being someone who loves running but always too lazy to do so on a regular basis, joining you guys is probably the best thing to happen to my health.

    Keep it up guys!

    Khalid: Awesome, hope to see you soon.

  37. Maha Al Rashed says:

    hey,
    im thinking of joining. any suggestions on how to go about doing that?

    Maha: you could start by sending me a blank email to the6kclub@gmail.com to get updated on when/where we are meeting and just show up 😉 it’s that simple.

  38. Sooli says:

    I wish I had heard of the club a year ago. I too decided in 2005 to loose weight and I gave myself a target. I used to workout 2 hours a day, 7 days a week. I used to ditch work and make up a phony meeting JUST to go to the gym. My body was still considered obese but I dropped 8 SIZES!!! and I looked amazing! Later I started getting back aches so I immediately made sure to work on my back before doing any exercises .. then one day I bent over to feed my grandmother and I couldn’t get back up. From them on I tried to get back in to the workout routine but it hurt sooooooooooooooo much … I’m talking EXCRUCIATING that I started hating myself and since then I’ve gained all my weight back PLUS!

    Turns out that I focused so hard of losing weight that my back muscles were so weak they couldn’t handle the pressure.

    My whole family is upset that I’ve gained all my weight back. Everytime I wanna get back on the wagon I immediately jump off. I love to walk. I do the same thing Jasem does which is walk from one town to another when the weather permits. I hope to be able to do that again soon. Good Luck Everyone and Have Fun!

    Sooli: Join us.
