Meet Jacques Sayagh, a homeless man who lives on the streets of Paris, but always fits in a workout. That's because the 50-year-old also happens to be a competitive bodybuilder!
"Bodybuilders are futurists, they dare everything," Sayagh explains in a short film made by director Julien Goudichaud. "It's a world that I like."

Despite a diseased liver from years of alcohol abuse, Sayagh competes in bodybuilding contests, using the streets he calls home as his training facility.
The Frenchman does push-ups on the pavement, pull-ups with belts suspended from lampposts and bicep curls using bungee cords.
"I don't want to live in a small apartment," he says. "People do not understand why I sleep on the floor, but I never feel cold."
As for why he continues the rigorous workout routines, Sayagh reveals his one motivation. "I have grandchildren. I don't want them to think that their grandfather is an a--hole," he shares. "I want them to be proud of me, that's all I want."
