A balance of work and physical fitness is very important. There are a lot of work-related injuries that are still not properly addressed. These may be due to prolonged sitting, improper posture, poor health and fitness status. Exercise is proven to be a factor in keeping people at the workplace energised, which leads to a sharper brain and increased ability to concentrate, learn and think creatively.
Here are some of the success stories of the team:
HR Manager from UAE
Chose a specific time at 4.30pm to work out every day that helped him commit. With a combination of workout and diet, he felt his sleep has improved and he has lost some weight. He plans to continue even during Ramadan. His advice: choose your favourite sport and start gradually.
Office boy from India
Took up this challenge as a health-improving activity. He enjoyed it thoroughly and accepted the challenge. Sharafudeen goes to work earlier than the usual time. And after opening all the offices, that’s when he starts to exercise. In the evening, he also tries to workout. Having a fitness buddy helped him a lot. Sharafudeen makes sure to drink a lot of water and eat at the correct time (avoids eating late at night). Since starting the programme, he gets good sleep daily, has become more flexible, has lost weight, there’s less body pain and he wakes up in the morning refreshed. His advice is to enjoy what you do. The result will definitely give you more confidence and happiness, he says.
Mohammed Al Nabulsi
Technical Operations Officer from Jordan
Found the programme to be a great initiative and it helped him organise his physical activities. Mohammed believes that we all have time which can be turned into waste therefore it is important to set priorities straight. His food routine involves no sugar, no soda, no smoking and no junk food. At 42, he found it difficult to lose weight but believes the importance of enjoying what you do and keeping fit should be a part of everyone’s lifestyle. He suggests to find your own circle of friends to keep you motivated.
Taibah Ali Bahmany
Administrative Assistant from Iran
The programme provides team spirit, helps gain new healthy habits, opportunities to work out with colleagues, and challenges you to achieve a goal, believes Taibah. She makes sure to have a daily and weekly plan. She believes that food plays the biggest role in nurturing and hydrating the body and contributes a lot in the ability to workout. She became more organised and reached a higher fitness level. Workout time is part of her daily routine. To avoid boredom, she prefers changing the location and type of exercise. She maintains that it is important to be motivated and have the desire in challenging yourself to achieve your goal and live a healthy lifestyle.
