Time Out Dubai staff
What sparked your interest in living a healthier lifestyle? As a teenager I started going to circuit classes at my local gym and I got hooked on seeing how I could improve my fitness and physique in just a short time.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to take that first step? Make a plan and write it down. Without that you will not have a path to follow and will most likely go off track.
What benefits can people expect to see from working out with you? High motivation and encouragement, improved fitness and a better understanding of your body. You’ll also always get a good well-structured and personalised workout.
Is there anything in particular that would complement a training session with you? I offer all my clients my six-week abs toning and strengthening plan that they can do twice a week without my guidance. This is an added bonus that complements my training sessions, and is suitable to any fitness level.
What are the three essential ingredients of a good workout? Variety, structure and intensity.
What’s your fitness philosophy? Sustainable weight loss is a complete lifestyle, not a 12-week eating plan.
What song is a must in your workout playlist? Right now I am into Calvin Harris’ How Deep Is Your Love.
How do you treat yourself on “Cheat Day”? I don’t actually plan in a cheat day as such, but I may treat myself to a Subway sandwich every now and then. PT sessions from Dhs230 per session. Fitness First, CP2, Control Tower, Motor City, www.fitnessfirstme.com (052 960 6347).
