So as all my Instagram followers know, my account got hacked last week, it was the dumbest thing I’ve done in a long time haha! I clicked on a link while half asleep, and directed me to the instagram page to log in my details. Next thing I know my information was all changed and the hacker started posting random pictures and videos. Several people also got hacked from my instagram account, so I apologize for that!
What’s been happening..
I switched my training from Brute Strength to Training Plan for several reasons. Brute Strength just wasn’t for me, I needed a lot more work than they were offering me. I tested Training plan for a whole month (4 weeks, 5 days a week) once a day. What I enjoy with TTP is their barbell cycling, almost every day is a different weightlifting movement, snatch balances, cleans, 3 position snatches etc.. Some things that I need to work on constantly and I found great results within the first 2 weeks of it. Also, their interval conditioning workouts are the best! The suck and I enjoy them so much!
Here is what I am doing today:
A. With a running clock, each part for time:

I also thoroughly enjoyed their gymnastic workouts, all strict movements and EMOMs however, I will be adding more next week to prepare myself for the Open.
Last year hinted to all of you through my instagram photos of holding RedBull cans.. And finally I am very happy and proud to announce that I am soon to be an official RedBull athlete!
Most of you know that I was following Nourishing Dubai for a whole month and before that I was following my nutritionist’s plan.. And since Battle of the East (October 31st weighing 68kg) to January 31st I am very happy that I feel much lighter at 62kg. My numbers aren’t what they used to be, still struggling with heavy snatches and clean and jerks but I am happy my squats haven’t gone down. But my gymnastics is getting so much better. I guess you win some you lose some! Time for the REgains!
Pechakucha Night in Sharjah
Surrounded by some of the coolest social media influencers in the country. I had the privilege to share my story and journey through instagram and how I use social media to influence my followers positively with motivation and determination as well as educate them.
Mprove Fitness and CryoHealth in Abu Dhabi
Mprove Fitness is a new gym that has been set up for body building, yoga, crossfit, weightlifting and other sports. The owner Mohammed Al Tamimi brilliantly organized for Emirati athletes/coaches to coach classes to encourage and support Emirati Coaches. I was one of the lucky ones to coach two ladies classes.
The ladies classes in Mprove fitness are held in a separate enclosed room and you can find the schedule on this link > Mprove Fitness Ladies Crossfit
CryoHealth is finally operating in Abu Dhabi, there are separate rooms and changing rooms for men and women so I encourage more ladies to try out the freeze machine that will help you speed up your recovery! Please remember to wear long socks and gloves!
