Periodization in Training

posted by FitnessFirst Team November 21, 2017 0 comments

There is no magic formula to help you achieve your desired goals however success in triathlons, or the lack of it, is determined by how you blend the stresses of frequency, duration and intensity into a comprehensive plan while taking into consideration the training principles of progressive overload, specificity, reversibility and individuality.

Most triathletes follow one training system or another by the mere fact that their workouts progress from day to day, whether it’s a random system, mixed system or a periodization one.

In random training, the triathlete does what s/he feels like doing every day with little or no forethought when making the decision. In mixed training, the athlete puts more thought into what to do on daily basis. On the other hand, periodization is a training concept in which the training season or annual training plan is divided into periods, in each period the triathlete focuses on improving a specific aspect of fitness while maintaining the gains made in previous periods. Even though periodization is quite effective in producing fitness peaks at the right times while preventing overtraining and burnout, it is not the only path to peak performance. Training by following the concepts of periodization is, however, the most likely way known today to achieve athletic success.

Periodization in Training

Periodization is not just dividing the annual training plan into periods, it also employs the training principles of specificity, individuality, reversibility and progressive overload.

Principle of specificity:

training should progress from the general to the specific.

Principle of individuality:

training should emphasize the unique needs of the triathlete. For example, early in the season a triathlete needing greater swimming strength may work with weights to develop general fitness. Later in the season, and closer to the target race, this triathlete should spend more time simulating race intensity and less time working with weights.

Principle of reversibility:

workouts should be arranged in such a way that fitness gains achieved in earlier phase of training are maintained.

Progressive overload principle:

arranging workouts that address new elements of fitness and improve them gradually.

While following a periodization plan may help you achieve your goals, it should be used only as a road map and not as a formula – Flexibility and willingness to change are essential to achieving your desired goal(s).

What triathlon distance is suitable for me?

posted by FitnessFirst Team November 21, 2017 0 comments

There are different variations of triathlon distances. The Super Sprint (not a common distance), the Sprint, the Olympic/5150, the Half Ironman, and the Full Ironman distances. First you need to choose one of those various distances, consider your family/work/other social commitments and then start putting in training that is specific to that distance, so what you’re doing is relevant and appropriate to your desired outcome.

Here’s how to decide which distance is right for you:

Super Sprint

Swim 0.25mi (375m), Bike 6.2mi (10km) and Run 1.5mi (2.5km)

If you are completely new to triathlons, starting with a super sprint might be the best distance to sign up for, you need to put in 3-4 hours of training doing 1-2 sessions per sport weekly. So that means 1-2 bike workouts, 1-2 swims, and 1-2 runs per week.

Sprint

Swim 0.5mi (750m), Bike 12.4mi (20km) and Run 3.1mi (5km)

If Sprint Triathlon is what you wish to tackle, then make sure you’ve got 4-6 hours to spare weekly for training to do 1-2 sessions per sport weekly.

Olympic/5150

Swim 0.93mi (1500m), Bike 24.8mi (40km) and Run 6.2mi (10km)

If you are able to swim 1.5km in open water, bike 60-80km and complete a 20km run (separately), then Olympic distance is right for you. You’ll need to spare 6-8 hours weekly for training and your longest workout will look like: a ‘brick’ workout, consisting of a 60- to 80kme bike ride, followed by a 14-16km run.

Half Ironman (70.3)

Swim 1.2mi (1900m), Bike 56mi (90km) and Run 13.1mi (21.09km)

Typically the major training for half ironman distance will happen on your weekends – on Friday 80-100km long bike ride followed by an easy transition run directly off the bike, and on Saturday a 15-20km long run. If you can commit to heavier training loads than those for shorter distances, then half ironman distance is suitable for you.

Full Ironman

Swim 2.4mi (3800m), Bike 112mi (180km) and Run 26.2mi (42.19km)

Similar to 70.3, your major training will happen on your weekends but with longer distances. Your longest workout will be a race simulation consisting of 1hour swim followed by 160km bike ride and then topping that off with a 20-25km long run.

When you know you’re ready to commit to putting in the training hours, it’s always better to start with a short distance triathlon (e.g. super sprint or sprint) and work your way up. Once you’ve got a couple of short distance triathlons under your belt, you’ll know whether or not you’ll enjoy moving up to longer distance.

Triathlon distances – What is the difference

posted by FitnessFirst Team November 4, 2017 0 comments

There are various distances for triathlon races to accommodate triathletes of various skill levels, but these distances might vary from one race to another. One of the reasons that may cause any variation from the standard race distance is the race venue. Sometimes, race directors are challenged to find a safe venue for a triathlon event. To keep the logistics and safety concerns of staging such an event to a minimum, race directors wisely select a race course that is slightly different than the common distances mentioned below.

The Half and Full distances are commonly referred to as Half Ironman and Ironman distances respectively. Half Ironman races can also be referred to as Ironman 70.3’s, with the number 70.3 representing the total mileage of the race.

Here are the common distances of triathlon races:

Super Sprint: Swim 0.25mi (375m), Bike 6.2mi (10km) and Run 1.5mi (2.5km)

Sprint: Swim 0.5mi (750m), Bike 12.4mi (20km) and Run 3.1mi (5km)

Olympic / 5150: Swim 0.93mi (1500m), Bike 24.8mi (40km) and Run  6.2mi (10km)

Half Ironman/70.3: Swim 1.2mi (1900m), Bike 56mi (90km) and Run 13.1mi (21.09km)

Full Ironman: Swim 2.4mi (3800m), Bike 112mi (180km) and Run 26.2mi (42.19km)

Most of the above distances are available for you to compete in locally through our events organizing partner Race.ME. For full list of races, please visit http://race-me-events.com/

Where do I start to do my first race? How to prepare for Triathlons

posted by FitnessFirst Team November 3, 2017 0 comments

Triathlons can seem complicated as there is a lot of equipment, locations and logistics to think about. I’ve broken down what you need to consider when doing your first race.

Choose Your Distance

Shorter distances are usually more attractive for first-timers. It’s fun and can be competitive if you want it to be. I’d suggest starting off with a Sprint distance to get familiar with the way triathlon races work and build up to longer distances.

Decide if you want to be part of a team or go solo

Many races allow you to work as a team in a relay race. This means the 3 legs can be split up by 2-3 people. So you can compete and only do the swim, bike or run leg if you want to. Some people like to complete all 3 legs and do it individually. Think about your fitness level, strengths and goals when you are deciding this.

Check out the events calendar & Pick your race

There are lots of different events happening across Dubai over the coming months. Check out the events calendar and see which race suits you. When picking a race consider; locations, times, availability for supporters coming to watch you, if you can race as a family, race packs, information available to you.

Register & Collect your race pack

Register for the race you have chosen, read more information about the race and collect your race pack. Your race pack will usually include; rules, race numbers, swim hat and general need to know information about your race so you have everything you need.

Show Up!

Arrive on event day in plenty of time. Relax and enjoy the day! The hard work is in the training. Race day is the day to get the medal you have been working towards!

I am Subhankar and I #empowerme

posted by FitnessFirst Team October 24, 2017 0 comments

I am Subhankar Ghosh, I am 52 years old and a VVIP member of Fitness First, Dalma Mall since 2014. I came to Abu Dhabi in 2010. I came from a quite stressful work-life background at Chennai, India. After coming to Abu Dhabi life was better, with less anxiety and comparatively tranquil. I could spend more time with my family. After 2 years of this, I gained 2 Kg in weight (66 to 69 Kg). Prior to this I had a stable weight of 66 Kg since at least 12 years. I was doing free-hand exercise and a few Yogasanas daily. Also in 2013 my Doctor asked me to be ready to start life-long pills to reduce my blood pressure.

It was then I understood that it was time to hit the gym. I did a few months at nearby gym but it was always over-crowded. As I was a frequent visitor to Dalma Mall, I observed this Fitness First gym come up new there. In June 2014, I joined the gym. The advantage was that this gym was on my way back home from the office. I took the fabulous trainers’ help there to chalk out my personal exercise regime. Two of the trainers really turned me into a new man.

I am Subhankar and I #empowerme – Fitness First Testimonials

The initial going was very tough as I had weak muscles due to continuous sitting in front of the computer. The trainer Gilbert was calibrating my strength & endurance and checking my limits. Every day of the week, I was sore all over and every part of me ached. Added to this were my personal problems with my knee joints and ankles. So, my trainer equally had a tough time. But luckily one thing I had inbuilt is determination. The exercise plan was made up for cardio, back, calfs & abs, chest, legs, cardio, cardio again, stretch, plyometric and full body circuit in that order. This is the same regimen pattern that I still follow which gives me good returns.

My food intake also had to be changed a lot. I started noting and measuring each and everything I put in my mouth. We found that I was eating about 3000 KCal daily. Initially we reduced the target to 2700, then 2500, then 2200, then 1800, then 1500, then finally 1150. My requirement was being cross-checked by the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). Then a carb cycle started but that was too tough for me. Nowadays I try to stay within 1500 KCal daily. I have made a chart of all that I eat and pasted the calculated protein/carb/fat & KCals on the refrigerator.

The result of all this was that I reduced to 60.8 Kg and then am staying at 61 Kg ever since 2014. I feel fitter than I was at 22 years of age. I can now jump higher than I ever imagined. Incidentally 62 Kg was my dream weight since last 15 years and only here I could achieve it. So, this is the best gift for me on coming to Abu Dhabi. I have my heartiest well wishes for Fitness First Dalma Mall (it feels like home, once I am inside), to my trainers Gilbert & Liam. Liam also helped me with specialist advice when I had frozen shoulder one year back. With the prescribed rubber band, I came out of it in 5 months.

One thing which I can say is that it is never late to start. I started at 49 years.

Who are Triathlons for? Is it for me?

posted by FitnessFirst Team September 18, 2017 0 comments

Triathlon is an endurance sport in which the athlete carries out swimming, cycling and running, in that order, and with the clock running during transitions between swim/bike and bike/run. It is an event won by completing the course with the fastest time. It is a great fun and accessible sport for all. It does attract social friendly types of people and fits in different lifestyles.

Why do triathlons?

You don’t need to be a hardcore super fit athlete to take part in triathlons. Many people use triathlon as a goal or a way to get motivated to do cardio, lose weight and also for its social factor to meet other like-minded individuals. Triathlon offers a great variety for training so you are not always doing the same thing and you’ll never get bored, it also offers event finishers a great sense of accomplishment and presents endless challenges! You can always work to go further and get faster.

Who can do a triathlon?

Are you in search of fitness, motivation, a challenge and/or the social benefits of a sport? Then triathlon is for you and you can absolutely train for and participate in triathlons.

Can I really finish a triathlon?

As long as you pick a triathlon that’s suited realistically to your abilities, you put in the training, surround yourself with like-minded individuals and you want it bad enough, then you will finish it. The fact that you’re reading this means you’re interested in endurance and fitness and the chances are very high that you could finish a triathlon.

Do I need to be strong in any of the three disciplines?

You don’t really need to be a strong swimmer, cyclist or runner. Starting to practice all three disciplines will make it possible for you to do triathlon no matter what level you start at and no matter what weaknesses you have. The swim, bike or run can be a challenge for some, but encountering challenges and overcoming them is what triathlon is all about. You may not be the best swimmer, cyclist or runner, but when you finish your weakest discipline, the game is still ON!

Top Tips for Starting Your Tri-Training

posted by FitnessFirst Team September 18, 2017 0 comments

Hopefully by now, you have fully committed to your decision to train for a triathlon and you’ve stopped thinking about if you should or not?

Don’t worry, we have all been there!

It can seem daunting and overwhelming when taking on such a challenge… However, the good news is I am here to tell you how easy it can be… yes you heard me right… it can be easy. Now I’m not saying it won’t take some hard work physically and mentally, but we can help you to make the journey as seamless as possible.

Check out some top tips on how to get started with your training.

Don’t over think what equipment you need

There are hundreds of articles and people out there who will tell you about lots of different types of gadgets, bikes, swimsuits and running shoes you will need but my advice is KEEP IT SIMPLE! If you want to explore your options then please do but you do not NEED anything fancy or expensive.

I completed my first sprint triathlon wearing a swimming costume, goggles and mandatory swim hat. For the cycle, I used a standard road bike which cost AED 1500 and a pair of trainers which I then used for the run leg of the race. In fact, even when I did the 70.3 distance the only extra item I invested in was a pair of cycling shoes!

Start Training…

Quit thinking and start moving.  Don’t worry about how much distance you can cover at the beginning. Start working on running, cycling and swimming either indoors or outdoors. The distance will soon start to clock up as your fitness levels increase.

Plan your weekly training schedule

Schedule your sessions around your work, family and social commitments. Consistent training is the key to getting the result you want. This also includes REST! Download a training plan to see what sessions you could attend or to get more guidance on the type of training you should do.

Share your goals!

Tell your family, friends and colleagues what you are training for. This will keep you accountable and will inspire others! Join a group of like minded people who share the same goal and you are guaranteed to stay motivated throughout your training.

Get a Coach

A coach will keep you on track, help you with technique, tips and accountability. You can find a coach within group sessions or 1:1 sessions for a real personalized approach. If you want to get the best from yourself this is definitely the way to go!

I used to be in generally fit shape when I was younger in my school days when I used to play for our rugby team and regularly visit the gym. I wasn’t much disciplined in the gym but I put the hours in. In university, I tore my inner-meniscus tendon in my right knee and things spiraled from there. Due to a slow recovery in an unhealthy environment (student life in Manchester is a big party), I quickly piled on 10 kilos over the next 6 months. Most of my friends and family were shocked and couldn’t believe I had gotten so big so fast. For me I didn’t really feel like I was putting on too much weight it was a gradual realization and when I had it was depressing and I mostly gave up on getting back into shape.

Before diet and working out

Over the next few years of jogging on and off and yo-yo diets, I had steadily peaked at about 110 kg. It was early in 2015 when I was suffering from chest pain when I knew something was very wrong. The doctor confirmed I had been suffering from hyper tension and high blood pressure and I either changed my lifestyle immediately or started heart medication.

Old picture from our wedding day

I had married at this point and my wife really encouraged me and supported me in sorting out a proper diet and I started going to the gym every morning before work. Progress at first was slow but when I joined Fitness First and started training, I started losing weight pretty quickly after that and my body really started changing. I started sleeping better and breathing more easily and I monitored my body fat and muscle content. The fat was going down and muscle up. I had lost about 10 kg in the first year and the morning gym routines had changed from being health motivated to a full blown habit which I still abide by.

After diet and working out

I still have a long way to go another 8 kg to be at my goal weight but my blood pressure is back to normal and I have a baby girl now who I have plenty of energy to run around and play with. I sleep like a baby and I need to start my day at my local gym- Fitness First Mirdif City Centre. I recommend visiting the gym in the morning since you start the day with a positive note so no matter what happens you have done something positive for yourself and that sense of well being translates into every aspect of your life. I hope others don’t wait for a medical reason to take that positive step to a healthier lifestyle, once you catch the fitness bug there’s no going back!

Son inspired the father who now inspires the son! – Fitness First Testimonial

By profession, I am a Property Manager and a DJ at the Spartan Race. But the most pivotal role I play is that of a father. As a father to a young son, I hate being the one to tell him that I am ‘Too Tired’ to play with him. Then Fitness First approached me to join and represent the Couch-to-Sprint movement. After training for one month for the Spartan race, I have already lost 16 Kgs. Now I am never too tired to play with my son.  I am an example of how the Son inspired the father who now inspires the son!

With that in mind, the Spartan Race team approached Fitness First Middle East with the idea. As a catalyst and an integral part of healthy living within the community, Fitness First took it on board.

Couch to Sprint became a reality.

They chose a candidate. And with the support of Spartan Race Arabia and Fitness First Middle East, it was time to put it to the test.

The aim is to move from the living room couch to the Spartan Race Arabia


The Candidate (and the blog author)

Weight: 130 kg

Height: 176 cm

Classified: Obese

My name is Farid, I have been the DJ for Spartan Race Middle East from the outset.

As you can see from my stats, I am unhealthy. I always found it funny that the only person not exerting any sort of physical activity at the races is the big fat DJ. But the truth is, it was depressing. Don’t get me wrong, I loved every moment of being able to DJ and in some way contribute to the success of the event. But many times I’d feel left out. I was not part of the “game”.

I’d watch these amazing people head towards the start line. They all had the exact same expression on their faces. They all looked like they were about to enter into a battle convinced they are going to overcome. They were all challenging one person, themselves. It was personal and it was about to go down!!

And they all looked happy, I never sensed an ounce of fear or hesitation.

But that wasn’t even the best part, you should see their faces crossing the finish line! They have conquered something deep within themselves, it is hard to touch upon. It’s like they have crushed all the self doubt they were carrying.

Mud faced, sweat and blood. Soaked, bruised and dehydrated. They had been through a long, demanding and vigorous test. Yet no one seemed like they were walking, everyone was floating.

They started happy and finished defiant, ecstatic and overjoyedContent with who they are.

That is what I am looking for by taking on this challenge. Of course that mental state comes with the physical and that is what this blog is about. My physical journey to reach that mental state.

I’d love for you to join me on that ride.

Today I was tired and did not want to go. I just wanted the couch and youtube. I convinced myself to go and take it easy. Walking into @fitnessfirstme Uptown Mirdif I got a wave of energy but was still thinking i'll tell @dinis_fitness_crossfit_coach if we can slow it down a notch today. Boy was I wrong. It was the most grueling session I had with him. He kept pushing my buttons. I froze at one point. My legs stopped functioning and I could hear Dinis in my ear – "TWO MORE!!" At that moment it felt like this is my limit, I can't push no more. But it felt soooo good afterwards. I don't want that to be my limit. It is not my limit, I will push harder!! @spartanarabia – but did you die though? 😂 . . . . . . . #spartanrace #spartanarabia #spartanracehatta #spartanraceproteam #fitnessfirstme #fitnessfirstdubai #fitnessfirstuptownmirdif #legendswillrise #couchtosprint #tunnelvision #pushpushpush #ihatesquats #buckfurpees #mirdif #uptownmirdif

With the support and guidance of Spartan Race and Fitness First. I will offer all the useful information and tools handed out to me.

There will be a lot of blood, sweat and tears along the way which I would also like to share with you. But it will all be fun and entertaining.

I want you to join in, this is a call to action. I want you to share whatever success story you feel needs telling. Whether in the comments section or even if you have your own blog, share this with us. Or send in a write up of something you recently achieved and we can include it in a section of the blog,

Being the DJ and training for Spartan Race Arabia, I have decided to put together 30 minute mix. I'll do this on a regular basis, once a week or so. The inspiration for it will come from within the gym. Whether group classes at @fitnessfirstme or a specific workout I tried. Or by watching someone grinding at the gym. Each mix will have different tempos and energy levels based on whatever inspiration I picked up during the week. They will range from high intensity for cardio to reggaeton based for Zumba to deep house for your warm up. I'll throw in a couple of down tempo sounds for yoga and recovery. So here is the first one.

التدريب أو عدم التدريب؟

posted by FitnessFirst Team June 1, 2017 0 comments

ذلك هو السؤال – وما من إجابة صحيحة أو خاطئة! مع اقتراب شهر رمضان المبارك في كل عام، دائمًا ما يثار نقاش حول ما إذا كان من الأفضل صحيًا التدرب خلال هذا الوقت – أو حتى التدرُّب أثناء الصيام. وثمّة شواغل أخرى كالإفراط في تناول الطعام أو الإقلال منه كثيرًا يمكن أن تؤثر أيضًا في قرارك بشأن التدريب

الجواب بسيط: حسب الحالة

يرجع السبب في اختلاف الجواب حسب الحالة لاعتماد الأمر كليًا على طبيعة جسمك. من المهم أن تعرف وتفهم القيود التي يفرضها عليك جسمك وما يمكن لجسمك التعامل معه. فإذا كان التدريب جزءًا منتظمًا من روتينك اليومي أو الأسبوعي، فعندئذٍ لا يمثل التدريب خلال شهر رمضان أي مشكلة – وحينها قد تتمثل القيود في فهم الكثافة المناسبة لتدريباتك. وإذا كان التدريب جديدًا عليك نسبيًا، سيكون من الأفضل الابتعاد عن التدريب خلال هذا الشهر الكريم. مرة أخرى، هذا الأمر يتعلق بفهمك لقدراتك

 متى ينبغي التمرين خلال شهر رمضان؟

ثمّة سؤال آخر كثيرًا ما يُطرَح، وهو متى ينبغي أن تتدرب. ولأن شرب الماء يمثل أحد أهم الأشياء أثناء ممارسة الرياضة، فمن الأفضل التدريب مباشرة بعد تناول وجبة إفطار خفيفة. ومع ذلك، إذا كان البقاء إبقاء جسمك رطبًا بين وجبتي الإفطار والسحور مهمة سهلة، عندئذٍ سيكون التدريب أثناء الصيام مفيدًا لجسمك. اعرف قدراتك

إذا كنت قد قررت التدرُّب، فإليك بعض النقاط لتأخذها بعين الاعتبار عند وضع برنامجك للتدريب

حاول ألا تقسو على جسمك؛ وأبقِ التدريبات لمُدد قصيرة وبكثافة أقل من المُعتاد

إذا كان التدريب جديدًا عليك، حاول ممارسة بعض تمارين الكارديو والحركات الخفيفة لإبقاء جسمك في حالة حركة

احرص على شرب الكثير من الماء بين الإفطار والسحور لتحتفظ بجسمك رطبًا تمامًا

حاول أن تؤجِّل التدريبات عالية الكثافة إلى ما بعد وجبة الإفطار. بهذه الطريقة يمكنك أن تمنح جسمك الغذاء اللازم ليمنحك الطاقة للتدريب

حاول ألا تُكثر من تناول الأطعمة المقلية أو الدهنية بحيث لا تؤثر سلبًا على عملك الشاق وما حققته من لياقة بدنية

إذا بدأت تشعر بالدوار أو الإعياء، أوقف التدريب وقلّل كثافته تذكر أن القيام بأي حركة خير لك من ألا تتحرك على الإطلاق

أيًا كان قرارك – سواء بممارسة التدريب أو عدمه – احرص على أن تفهم جسمك وقدراته. هذا ليس وقت تجرُبة أشياء جديدة، ولكنه وقت الحفاظ على لياقتك. أنت تعرف جسمك أفضل من أي شخص آخر

خطط بذكاء واحصل على نتائج في رمضان

posted by FitnessFirst Team June 1, 2017 2 Comments

إن فكرت بوضع خطة لفقد الوزن في رمضان؛ بإنهاك نفسك في تمارين الكارديو الطويلة والتدرُّب أثناء الصيام ومحاولة التفوق على ذاتك يوميًا، فأنت مخطئ ينبغي تصميم المُعادلة المثالية بتوازُن مثالي لتحقيق نتائج رائعة على مستوى الرياضة والعافية واللياقة البدنية. وشهر رمضان هو أفضل وقت لوضع خطة ذكية والحصول على نتائج رائعة. لقد اخترنا ثلاثة نصائح لمساعدتك في رحلتك لتحقيق اللياقة البدنية خلال شهر رمضان 2017

أولًا: التنظيم الذكي لروتين التمرين

أعدّ خُطة جيدة لبرنامج التمارين؛ تحترم تغذيتك الفعلية ومبنية على ما ترغب في تحقيقه. رمضان هو وقت يمكننا تسميته “بموسم التعافي”. تخيل نفسك رياضي من أصحاب الأداء القوي وتلتزم ببرنامج التمارين التزام صفوة اللاعبين المحترفين. لذا يجب عليك ألا تتوقف عن التمارين خلال رمضان ومع ذلك، ننصحك بأن تكون مرات التمارين أقل عددًا وكثافة في هذا الشهر

يحتاج جسدك فعليًا لأوقات للتعافي والراحة، ورمضان هو أفضل وقت يُمكنك فيه التدريب بكثافة أقل دون التخلّي عن النتائج الرائعة

ملاحظة: حزام ماي زوون يلعب دورًا هامًا في إدارة جلسات التمرين ويُساعدك في معرفة حدودك القصوى في التمارين

ثانيًا: رمضان هو الوقت الأمثل للاختلاط ولكن لا تتمادى حتى لا تندم

إنه موسم الطعام التقليدي الشهي، حلو المذاق، الثقيل، المليء بالدهون والسكر المكرر، حيث تكون فيه محاطًا بالعائلة والأصدقاء. قد لا نفقد السيطرة بسهولة ونندم عقب عيد الفطر مباشرة. إن فهمك لكيفية الموازنة بين اختياراتك سيساعدك على البقاء على المسار الصحيح واختيار الكميات المناسبة بحيث تسمح لنفسك بالاستمتاع بهذا الموسم. إن من أفضل النصائح تبديل الأيام التي ستلتزم فيها بالوجبات الصحية وتلك الأيام التي سيسمح لك فيها بالخروج عن البرنامج والاستمتاع. من الهام تذكر نوعية ما تأكله ومعرفة ما الذي سيكون ذا تأثير كبير على أدائك في صالة الألعاب الرياضية وكذلك على نتائجك على المديين القصير والطويل. اصنع توازنًا بين اختياراتك وستنهي هذا الشهر بشعور ومظهر رائعين

ثالثًا: نل قسطًا كافيًا من النوم

حين يتعلق الأمر برمضان فإن النوم ذا أهمية بالغة ويمكن أن يؤثر مباشرة على نتائجك

إن ليلة رائعة تقضيها في فراشك تعني ثلاث خطوات نحو تحقيق أهدافك للياقة البدنية. خذ الأمر على محمل الجد وستنبهر بالتغيرات التي ستحدث لجسدك؛ ستحظى بطاقة أكبر وتتحكم في شهيتك المفتوحة للطعام وستنخفض مستويات الكورتيزول، فالنوم يرتبط كُليًا بالتحكم في الإجهاد، حيث تعد مستويات الكورتيزول المرتفعة بمثابة آفة المجتمع الحديث، فقد تسبب أمراض القلب والسكر وارتفاع ضغط الدم وهشاشة العظام، والقائمة لا تزال طويلة

كما يعد الكورتيزول مسؤول أيضًا عن دهون البطن؛ تلك الذي تبذل قصارى جهدك لحرقها. ولعل الطريقة المثلى لخفض مستويات الكورتيزول هي أن تحظى بنوم جيد ليلًا

أطفئ جميع الأنوار وانستغرام وسناب شات والهاتف النقال والتلفاز وامنح نفسك ساعتين أو ثلاث من النوم الإضافي ليلًا. خطط لنوم عميق من 7-8 ساعات. أعلم أن ذلك صعبًا ولكن صدقني ستتذكر هذه النصيحة طوال حياتك إذا منحت نفسك الفرصة للمحاولة

لكل هدف استراتيجية مختلفة ومن المُهم معرفة ما هي احتياجاتك. لدى فيتنس فرست فريق من المحترفين يمكنهم مساعدتك في رحلتك لتنظيم روتين التمرين المثالي وإدارة برنامجك الغذائي وفهم أهمية الحصول على فترة للتعافي

To Train or Not to Train?

posted by FitnessFirst Team May 30, 2017 0 comments

That is the question – and there is no right or wrong answer! Every year as the Holy Month of Ramadan gets closer, there is always a debate as to whether it is healthy to train during this time – or even train while fasting. Other concerns such as eating too much or too little can also have an effect on peoples’ decision to train.

The answer is simple: it depends!

The reason why it depends is because it depends entirely on your body. It is important to know and understand your body’s limitations and knowing what your body can handle. If training is a regular part of your daily or weekly routine, then training during Ramadan shouldn’t be an issue – the limitation might then be to understand how intense your training should be. If training is fairly new to you, then taking this Holy Month off might be the better choice. Again, this comes down to understanding your limitations.

When to train during Ramadan?

Another question that is asked quite frequently is when to train. Because hydration is one of the most important things during exercise, it is recommended to train right after a light Iftar meal. However, if staying hydrated between Iftar and Suhoor is an easy task, then training while fasting might be alright for your body. Know your limitations!

If you do decide to train, here are some points to keep in mind when designing your training:

  • Try not to push your body too far; keep workouts short and at low intensity
  • If training is new to you, try some light cardiovascular exercises and mobility work to keep the body moving
  • Make sure to drink plenty of water between Iftar and Suhoor to keep the body fully hydrated
  • Try to keep high intensity workouts until after Iftar meals. This way you can give the body fuel for energy
  • Try not to eat too many fried or fatty foods so that it doesn’t counteract your hard work and fitness achievements thus far
  • If you start to feel dizzy or sick, stop training and lower the intensity. Remember, any movement is better than no movement at all

Whatever you decide – whether to train or not to train – make sure you understand your body and your body’s limitations. This is not the time to try new things, but to maintain your fitness. You know your body better than anyone else!

How and when to exercise in Ramadan

posted by FitnessFirst Team May 15, 2017 0 comments

Exercising should be continued during the holy month of Ramadan, as it is one of the healthy habits that are recommended to be followed for its many benefits that positively affect the human health.

However, the right time and kind of exercise should be chosen.

 

Why should you work out in Ramadan ?

If exercising is important to the body’s well being and health throughout the year, it is even more important in Ramadan than in any other month, due to many reasons including:

1. It helps people who follow an exercise program to easily resume it after Ramadan and does not give a chance to idleness to seep into their bodies.

2. During fast time, the muscular system gets energy by using the glucose in liver. If the physical exertion and required energy increase; and the amount of glucose in liver is inadequate to provide muscles with energy, the muscular system will use another source, which is the adipose tissue dissolution and fatty acid oxidation. If the fatty acids decrease, the muscular system will oxidize the fats in liver. Thus, fast and exercising are a good chance to burn the stored fats.

3. It improves the digestive system efficiency and protects from indigestion problems.

4. The weight lost during fast will definitely be gained after Iftar, especially if the fasting person overeats throughout Ramadan without exercising.

5. If the body suffers from deprivation and lacks energy resources, weight will be lost, but from the non-fatty tissues, which adversely affects health. However, in Ramadan, exercising and deprivation of food lead to weight loss from the adipose tissues, affecting health positively.

6. Not eating or drinking for long hours up to 15 hours, as well as staying up for long hours at night, cause body fatigue and stress. Therefore, exercising is a key factor in fasting to increase the body’s efficiency, fitness and health; add vitality to it; protect it from diseases; and eliminate idleness and laziness.

What time of the day should I exercise?

Preferable Times for Exercising in Ramadan and the benefits of each:

1. Two or three hours before Iftar to compensate the body for the missing fluids and minerals as soon as possible to avoid the health symptoms that may be caused for it as a result of exercising

2. Approximately two and half to three hours after Iftar, as during this period, food is efficiently digested to recover energy and recharge it to the vital organs of the body

The period of time allocated to an exercising class during fast does not exceed 60 minutes for a maximum of 5 days a week.

The physical activities that are preferred to be practiced in Ramadan are of low or medium intensity kind and do not require considerable exertion and high resistance that may exhaust the body.

Guide to Reach your Health and Wellness Goals

posted by FitnessFirst Team April 10, 2017 4 Comments
How many times did you say it to yourself..

“this is it, this time I’m really gonna do it!”?

For many times we keep saying to ourselves and to our friends and family that this is the time that we are actually going to achieve or start doing something for our health and fitness, start working out, gain this amount of muscle, drop this amount of fat, run every day in the morning, etc, etc, etc..

but in reality we only do it for a couple of weeks, if we actually even start it, and then it starts fading out.

fitness-stretch-run-male

I’m pretty sure that most of us have heard about goals and the importance to set them, but do we actually do it? We can easily say we want to run a marathon in 6 months, but what is the breakdown and the actions that will take us there? Where do I have to be in 3 months in order to achieve that? What about in a month? What about next week? What do I have to start doing tomorrow? There’re many ways to set your goals but the one that has been more effective for me over the past years is the SMART structure, that each letter represents a specific word that will help you set your goal. Let’s see below how it works:

On the acronym A some people use the Attainable, I preferably like to use Action plan instead, because it gives you the idea of what you need to do in order to achieve that. So now that we know what SMART goals are, let’s use the marathon example to see how it works:

It’s very common that you first select the time based and then you go to the realistic one, it can get confusing if you think that your goal is realistic but then the timeline that you put into it might not be enough, so I always recommend to get the deadline first and then realize if it is realistic or not. But this is just the beginning, this is the part where everybody can get but then the motivational side starts breaking down, “well, in reality it’s only in 6 months down the line, why do I have to start now? I can only start next week, actually I’m pretty busy with work at this point”, or even worse, “a Marathon is too much for me, what was I thinking?”

This is when you need an action plan and baby steps to get there..

You know you’ll be training 5 times a week, but where do you have to be in 1 month? Nothing better than breaking down your big goal into small goals that will help you, and for that you can always use a timeline draw, from a point “A” to “B”, starting from the future until today, let’s see below how it works.

Point A (Today) _________________________________________________Point B (Marathon)

Being “A” today and “B” the Marathon day in 6 months, you start on the Marathon point and go backwards to understand which steps you’ll need to get there. You can start by selecting where do you have to be half way there:

 

Point A (Today) ___________________________|_____________________Point B (Marathon)

3 Months – Run 21KM

By setting up this structure it will start giving you the idea what the steps are, so now its time to break that one into smaller ones:

Point A (Today) _1______2_______3__________4_________5______6____Point B (Marathon)

Now you have your big goal, in SMART goals, with an action plan and a breakdown of smaller goals that you can track your progress and keep you motivated throughout the process, as I mentioned before, if the goal is too big or too far away from today, it’ easy to get demotivated, but more important than that, you have to celebrate and reward yourself by the time you achieve those accomplishments, after all, they are great accomplishments that are taking you to the big picture. We apply the same in real life, we just don’t think about it, take babies as example, we know that eventually they will run, but we also know that before that they will walk, and before they will try to stand up, but never before they crawl, so we know the “baby steps” are there, and how much do they practice? Daily, we just don’t realize that but we’re always keen to celebrate, take pictures and videos and share with our families and friends. Do the same with your small baby steps for your wellness goals.

Regardless of what is your wellness goal at this point, either exercising, start eating healthier, having a more active lifestyle, always ensure you know exactly what you’re chasing, have an action plan for it and you know where you have to be in short period of time, if necessary print out a piece of paper or even write it down on a sticker, put it on your desk, on your fridge or even or your mobile phone wallpaper, but make sure you see it everyday.

Let the race begin!

posted by FitnessFirst Team January 9, 2017 0 comments

Here it goes: nutrition – check, water bottles – check, swimming gear – check, race fuel – check, timing chip – check, bed time – check.  4am my alarm goes off and by 4:30am I’m driving to the beach…It’s dark, windy and unbelievably exciting. Any other circumstance would made me question my sanity but not on the race day! I get ready in T1, march nervously towards the swim start to stand shoulder to shoulder with hundreds of athletes from around the world that are about to battle the same distance across swim, bike and run disciplines to proudly wear the finisher T-shirt…

…before you put on the Finisher T-shirt, you’ve spent months preparing for the race, investing in your mental and physical health, made sacrifices around your work and personal lifestyle because you’ve made a choice. A choice that made you commit to yourself and your team, a choice that has victory at the end of the road and one, that only you can push through when the times get tough!

On January 27th 2017 we are going to witness 160 Fitness First staff changing into the ‘Finisher’ t-shirt & here is how: 2 years ago there were 3 Fitness First employees who signed up to race individually the half Ironman distance triathlon in Dubai…the following year we decided to invite some keen colleagues to join us which brought our numbers to a total of 60 at the Dubai International Triathlon….this year, 160 Fitness First staff, few of our members and key business partners are going to stand proudly at the IRONMAN 70.3 Dubai start line to use their strength, to face their fears and to live our brand. Over the years, we watched the passion grow within our teams which is now unstoppable with clubs supporting major sporting events, competing in international races and our presence across the field in the Middle East. That’s what counts. From the Executive Team to club teams, we live, breathe and just can’t get enough of our brand, what better place to be!

If you look at the team and individual split, not everyone is a pro but everyone is a hero! Some of us never thought a triathlon is something to get involved in, some have only learnt how to swim in the process, others never run more than 5 or 10km and some & for some, focus has always been weight training…. and yes,  there are also those that haven’t ridden a bike since they were kids! But, does it really matter and how do you involve such big numbers?  Simple, they all made a choice and they love what we do. Based on a simple shout out, in less than 2 weeks we exceeded our predicted numbers for participants and the interest kept going. With the support from Fitness First our teams are training hard and awaiting the arrival of their training kit. This amazing initiative would’ve not been possible if it wasn’t for our closest strategic partners contributing almost AED 100,000 in sponsorship, call this a team effort! We’ve created a huge buzz around the business successfully continuing to promote the sense of community through social media activations, never ending what’s app groups, high energy training sessions and have already been asked about the next event. No session is ever too late and no session is ever too early, participation strives! We support them, we help them but all the hard work, come from the individuals…all we did, is ignited the fire!

Key important component of success for any company are when staff is passionate about your product, about your brand, about your future. How powerful it is that 160 staff will be waving the Fitness First flag on the race day, a race that is recognised internationally in the age group and professional field …. The main part however comes way before the race day : it starts with commitments and a plan, then hours of training, strategy, aches and pains, learning the disciplines, early starts and late finished, nutrition changes and body transformations is what it takes to stand on that beach and wait for the whistle to blow.  It starts by not giving up. By then, you’ve earned it, you worked for it, and you are ready to face it. We are proud that our teams represent that.

For some of us, it is just another race, another t-shirt, another medal …. For others, it’s a challenge of a lifetime or a race they never dreamt of participating in. We are making it happen but our staff passion for fitness & movement made the recruitment easy! Truth to be told, you are never too old for the next medal…

Will the numbers grow year on year? Yes. Will we involve our members? Absolutely. Do we love what we do? No doubt.

See you all at the beach on January 27th 2017…. shoulder to shoulder let the race begin!

Salman’s Inspiring Story

posted by FitnessFirst Team December 12, 2016 2 Comments

A huge congratulations to Salman, he’s shed an incredible 25 KG in four months since becoming a Fitness First member and never felt better!

 

Here’s his inspiring story:

Salman: I began getting big after moving to Sharjah at the age of 11. I became unhealthy and was held back by my excess weight towards the end of high school. I was unable to do certain things other kids could do such as run a mile or fit comfortably under a desk. A couple of months after graduating, I decided to try and get into shape.

I joined Fitness First and haven’t looked back since. My personal trainer Muhammed Kashif was wonderful in helping me reach my goals as I lost a total of 25 KG in four months through HIIT training, cardio, and a big alteration in my diet to help me lead a healthier lifestyle. I found that the most challenging thing to deal with is temptation when trying to lose weight.

Being in a household where people didn’t care too much about being healthy took a lot of will-power to stay on track and choose healthier options, but I began seeing results after a month which was pleasing. I feel so better about myself now and I’m able to do lots of things I couldn’t do before. I look different, sound different and walk different. I feel great every single day and feel like I can offer so much more to life.

I’d like to thank Fitness First because it’s not just a gym; it becomes a part of your life. The ambience, friendly staff, service and the motivation that my trainer Muhammad gave me are all major factors that helped me achieve my goal.

Well done Salman!
