Anja is a 25 year old triathlete from South Africa and moved to Dubai 2 years ago. As a triathlete most of her time on the weekends is spent running swimming and cycling, however she also plays the guitar, piano and sings.
Her area of expertise is sports rehabilitation and injury prevention, however she also is involved in sports performance enhancement, for example within schools and their sports teams.
Her motivation for fitness began as a child growing up in rural South Africa, she was surrounded by nature and the great outdoors and was also encouraged by her sporty family. Her ultimate goal is to represent South African as a triathlete.
She says: “The biggest challenge with getting good nutrition is that while restaurants are accessible everywhere they sell the wrong kind of unhealthy food.” She says the biggest challenge people face is with commitment, and that most people do not train consistently, get up at 5am or really focus on their diet plan. “I support Beast Mode mainly because of the macronutrient breakdowns, which allow me the freedom to build my own daily plan based around my training schedule. I don’t think anywhere else in Dubai is doing this type of plan.”
Her top tips for health are:
- Stay hydrated! Your body is 70% water and needs water all the time
- Eat when your body tells you
Anthony is a 34 year-old British ex-Commando who’s been in Dubai 15 months. His area of expertise is strength and conditioning and functional fitness. As a child, his hero was Bruce Lee, and this encouraged him to start martial arts, which later evolved into strength and cardio training.
Anthony thinks the biggest challenge that people face with fitness and simply knowledge, whether it’s related to nutrition or training. He says: “having goals is fantastic, but without a clear understanding of how to get there, they’re just dreams. With Beast Mode Nutrition, those obstacles are removed, with all relevant macros stated clearly on what you’re eating.”
