Aziz later sold his world of warcraft account for over $500 which he used to purchase a gym membership and start working out at the age of 17. A year later he got his first tattoo which was “veni vidi vici” on his left pec. Zyzz attended the highly respected Macquarie University but was soon kicked out later that year for having bad grades and appalling absenteeism. Zyzz was studying a bachelor of Bus/Commerce at UWS Parramattta. He resided and trained at Fitness First Carlingford.

Who is Zyzz?

“Zyzz is not a person. Zyzz is merely a personification of a way of life. I’m not Zyzz, Zyzz is a person that took over who I am, I”m Azz, Zyzz is a spirit brahs, zyzz took over me.” - Aziz Shavershian, Also known as Zyzz himself.

Zyzz quickly became a well known name across bodybuilding.com. His art of trolling, love for aesthetics and party lifestyle was appreciated worldwide. His facebook fan page quickly racked up 60,000 likes and a new era was born. He has many Youtube videos of himself, some with over 2 million views.

What happened?

Aziz Sergeyevich Shavershian died from a congenital heart defect in Bangkok on August 5, 2011 at the age of 22. Various news sources claims that he died in a Sauna due to the use of image / performance enhancing drugs however it is still unclear as to what really happened. Some say that he died while he was sleeping on a couch in a massage parlour, others say that he was drugged intentionally.

Steroid Accusations

Aziz Shavershian was accused of using Anabolic Steroids along with other drugs like Coke. There has been multiple evidence of Aziz posting on various Steroid Forums, along with a picture of him getting injected by his friend. Aziz later claimed that it was a “Flu” shot. His brother, Said Shavershian, also known as “Chestbrah” was caught for illegal possession of Anabolic Steroids in July 2011. Aziz Shavershian later planned a 1-2 week trip to Thailand to get away from all of this and to relax a little.

Zyzz’s Way of Life

Aziz Shavershian strongly believed that you should make the most out of your life, doing what you love doing and just overall, being a alpha male. He went to music festivals, met different people, made out with thousands of girls and dated a few female underwear models too.

Zyzz Attackers

All the fame has brought him love but hate as well, his brother, Said Shavershian, mentioned that they could no longer go to Music Festivals or Clubs together after a few incidents where a group of guys jumped on Aziz from behind as they knew who “Zyzz” was and they wanted to be the guy who “beat up” Zyzz because he was so popular. It was so bad that they had to bring pocket knives and all of their friends along in fear of Aziz’s life. Said Shavershian was protecting his brother all the way and it is truly upsetting that people would do this to them.

Despite all the haters and people trying to bring him down and destroy his dreams, Aziz was always nice to people, even to his haters and it is unfortunate that he has passed away. No one deserves to die this young.

Zyzz Transformation

Aziz Shavershian went from a World of Warcraft nerd to a Aesthetic God, admired by over 500 thousands of people. He was 6″1 ( 185 CM ), 220 lb ( 100 KG, 10% Bodyfat ). His brother, Said Shavershian, was the one who got him into bodybuilding.
