We had the good fortune of connecting with Mehdi dalili and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mehdi, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I’m very passionate about helping people, changing their life style, and being healthy. Helping people as their fitness trainer and getting them to their fitness goals has been my passion from very early age of 23. I started my first fitness facility in 2008 in my home country, Iran. I expanded on my original facility in the years after. This business soon felt like my second home. After few years, I moved to US, land of oppurtunities, and I started Top Notch Fitness.

What should our readers know about your business?
In my opinion, in our industry the most important thing is that to have the capability of transferring positive energy ang good vibes to your clients. As human being there are times that life is going trough big challenges, those are the times that make it harder to stay positive. I have a hard believe that working out and endorphins help you to forget all your obstacles and troublesome challenges. Fitness and helping clients in this area is indeed my daily fuel and keeps me energetic and passionate with your clients. Often time, I get questions from my clients that they are wondering how I can have so much energy even after 12 hours of work. Nothing is easy and if you want to reach your dream you have to work for it, Im working 18 hours some day but people give me the energy back when we change their life style forever.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Right now as of Covid there is no choice kind of to visit. But my favorite is Laguna Beach and all the restaurant with beach view, Beach Comber is one of my other favorite spot. In general the reason that I moved here in OC is because of the ocean.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My Wife Sepi Zahedi since we are running our business as a team.
