Top 5 hijabis in crossfit/strength training who influenced me

IMG_9784

Women have realised the importance of incorporating weights into their training and work out routine. Not only it will make ladies toned and less flabby, but it will also increase their strength in their day to day activities such as lifting heavy groceries, keeping up with their kids, and running errands. I have listed my top 5 favourite strong hijabis, and provided the link to their instagram account for your ‘stalking’ (i.e. reference) convenience.

A trainer based in Canada, she shares how she balances her daily life as a mom, fitness instructor, and CrossFit student.

Her passion for fitness inspires me to press that “follow” button on instagram. It’s not just her hobby – it’s a way of life. Her lively posts showed the importance of cultivating healthy habits from young through her kids, such as encouraging them to be active in sports and eating ‘clean’. Hopefully, when I have children of my own I can adopt some of her tips and healthy lifestyle for my family.

IMG_9772 IMG_9773 IMG_9774

A trainer from Malaysia, she became an icon as there are not many hijabis locally who are proud about about sculpting their bodies. She is also passionate about making Malaysians a healthier nation by collaborating with well-known fitness icons and trainers such as Kevin Zahri.

She faced comments from haters regarding her body, but that only made her stronger. Her positive content, humour, and activities are relatable to most Malaysian girls in their 20s and 30s, proofing that strong is indeed successful and beautiful. I hope this will spark more interest and change the perception towards ladies who lift.

IMG_9776IMG_9777 IMG_9775

Based in UK, Nesrine breaks stereotypes by being an instructor at a gym. Not only does she trains weight lifting classes, she also trains muay thai. She is definitely one strong woman that you don’t want to mess with!

Her videos and photos are always fun to see, showing women from various background, shapes and sizes working hard to get fit. Sports can indeed be a powerful uniting tool! Nesrine also proofed that staying modest does not hinder your performance in sports, and she gets creative with layering when she practices muay thai.

IMG_9778 IMG_9779 IMG_9780

Haya Alsharhan is a trainer in the 1st affiliated Crossfit box in Kuwait. She also competes in Crossfit Games Asia Regionals 2013 where she finished as the top 50.

In a world where Crossfit is dominated by women who embraces their muscles in sports bra and shorts, I follow her because she is one of the few professional Crossfit athlete who wears a hijab. Crossfit is a fast-moving, dynamic sport that requires jumping and inversion movements such as handstand push ups and gymnastics. As a newbie in crossfit, I still feel conscious about what I wear as ‘wardrobe malfunctions’ still accidentally happen from time to time when I’m in the box. I take pointers on how she dresses up, because sometimes all you need are minor tweaks to the regular work out clothes so it becomes hijabi-friendly.

IMG_9781 IMG_9782 IMG_9783

A familiar face in the running scene, she requires no introduction as her photos with Nike’s Pro Hijab became sensational worldwide. She does not practice crossfire, however she teaches cycling and strength training as she is also a NTC (Nike Training Club) instructor.

What I like most about her is that she opens up about her personal life as well. It gives a glimpse into the cultural nuances and preferences from the Middle East, which can be studied and further developed into a collaboration. Despite the misleading, conservative images that the main media portrayed, I see immense potential in the fitness industry in the Middle East, and I hope that Mani Rostam continues to be a positive influence.

Bad hair and skin habits that active hijabis should avoid

This is a special post, dedicated to all my active ladies yet still dress modestly doing all sorts of activity that they enjoy. We need to take special care of our hair and skin, even though it is not exposed to pollutants, dirt, and UV rays. However, all of these key points relates to cleanliness, and it is applicable to non-hijabis as well. After all, cleanliness is next to Godliness – something that everyone should strive for.

Are you guilty of doing these while or after working out?

1.Wearing make upwashing-face-skin-shower-1

Why is this a bad habit?

  • Make up hinders your skin from breathing properly while working out.
  • Make up and sweat is a bad combination as this will clog the pores, leading to break outs and acnes.
  • Side note: melting make up that runs down your face when you are sweating isn’t very pleasant to look at either.

2. Wearing your gym clothes all day after working outP1020670

Why is this a bad habit?

  • The most simple and direct answer: cleanliness.
  • The damp and sweaty surface of your work out clothes is a breeding ground for bacteria, plus the combination from the natural oils on your skin that is secreted out while working out will lead to body odour.
  • Although Nashata’s hijabs are light, breatheable, and evaporates sweat faster than normal hijabs, it is adviseable to change after you’re done working out.

3. Leaving your hair damp after showering

41tUL6GlQKL._SY450_

Why is this a bad habit?

  • Just like point no. 2 above, damp areas will become a breeding ground for bacteria, and this creates an unpleasant odour.
  • Covering your damp hair will affect your scalp, leading to problems such as dandruff, itchy and oily scalp. In the long run, hair becomes brittle and will easily fall off.

4. Touching your face without clean hands

2341-large

Why is this a bad habit?

  • Some surfaces might not be as clean as it appears to be, such as railings and even our phones. Imagine touching that sweaty bench at the gym with your hands then putting it on your face!
  • The bacteria and germs on your hands will transfer to your face, and this can also trigger acne and break outs

5. Dehydration

041157600_1447130747-2

Why is this a bad habit?

  • Water is lost through sweat and heat while working out.
  • Not drinking enough water after working out will leave the skin and lips dry, leading to a very dull and tired skin appearance.
  • Exposure to UV rays and indoor gyms with air conditioning will dry out the skin. After washing your face, do not forget to moisturize.

20 Years On – Cyberjaya, A Resident’s Perspective

Cyberjaya, Sepang

Cyberjaya, Sepang

  1. Cyberjaya celebrates its 20th birthday this month. Cyberjaya started in May 1996 where the promise, aspiration and hopes of many generation X like Ritz and I. We were the early believers in a new way forward for the nation’s ICT through the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC). It was the same year that Phd candidates Page and Brin began Google as research project at Stanford. Albeit thousand miles apart, the similitude of it is in the dawn of new creations. Being US graduates ourselves, we had no prejudice on technology initiatives, and not doubting in Malaysia’s ability to grow with ICT.
  2. Just before the turn of the millennium, we began our work-life, got married and commuted to Cyberjaya. We loved our new jobs but having the thought of daily commute from Bandar Utama to Cyberjaya was both time-consuming and increasingly costly by the year. Then LDP was the direct motorway into Cyberjaya. Every month, the LDP takes in more and more traffic and the odds of us having spent on average 2 hours a day on the road – was not the chore we wanted.
  3. In 2001, we moved our small family of three to Cyberjaya, adopting the city very early as we progress into our careers. Plus, we embraced the triple bottom line variant, the theme idea of Cyberjaya’s –  Live, Work, Play.  Then the town was small,  peaceful community with welcoming diversity and growing melting pot of talents.
  4. From three, our family grew to a family of five and from living in an apartment, we moved to a house in Cyberjaya, seven years later. Despite many challenges bringing up a family here we truly enjoyed Cyberjaya, its open spaces, its adorning trees, its fast track development, amidst the backdrop of Putrajaya.  Having close proximity to work, with near zero traffic, we were able to enjoy home-cooked food, and cherished time with the children.
  5. However, things did not happen magically, here in Cyberjaya. Patience,  persistence and effort got us and the community, the long waited public amenities. It was always the case of chicken-and-egg. For example, for many years, we went to the Cyberjaya Bomba’s makeshift mosques to pray and perform the Qurban. The Cyberjaya Bomba staff and household has been a great pacifier to the community. The long awaited Cyberjaya Raja Haji Fisabilillah mosque only existed 2 years ago and despite a daytime estimated population of 70,000,  we deathly have no hospital nor a Klinik Kesihatan yet within the vicinity. Despite Cyberjaya having the label of TwinCity (to Putrajaya),  residence then were not cordially welcomed  at the government clinics in Putrajaya. We were sent off to Klinik Kesihatan in Dengkil, to receive medical attention. Even to the point of wonder, if a child is born from a Cyberjaya dweller, when will it be that  Cyberjaya be recognise as his/her birthplace. Nonetheless, Klinik Gomez was the first clinic to open its doors to medical care and still operates to this day in Cyberjaya, we are happy patients to Dr Vasuki. Now, there are a few places where the community can get medical attention.
  6. Indeed, good things take time to happen – take Silicon Valley for example, it benefited from the talent pool of great minds across the globe, with universities like the Stanford, UC Berkeley, SFU, San Jose University and others played host, incubation and nurturing of these free-spirited creators. These universities were built in late 1800s and have produced great talents to whom were scientists, technologist, innovators and business owners, over decades. In comparison Cyberjaya, there is the Multimedia University (MMU) that started operation in 1999, followed by Lim Kok Wing in 2003, Cyberjaya University College of Medical Sciences in 2005 and Universiti Islam Malaysia in 2015. Great minds like Prof Ghauth Jasmon, the first president of MMU did a fantastic job to get the early days at university off the ground and brought in innovation, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit into young minds. It’s the talented undergraduate students of MMU who gave birth to Upin Ipin in 2005 and BoboiBoy in 2009. Creativity is our strength. The (late Tan Sri) Othman Yeop Abdullah had strong caring for Cyberjaya to “be green, low rise and campus atmosphere” alongside then stewardship of Dato’ Karim Abu Bakar of Setiaharuman.

    The Skyline @ Cyberjaya 20 Years On

    The Skyline @ Cyberjaya 20 Years On

  7. Entrepreneurs like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are children of settlers of the ‘Silicon Valley’, and Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the founders of Google are children to academicians who grew up in an environment that embraces technology and promotes creativity. To date, 60-80% of the revenue from Microsoft, Apple and Google are from out of the US. Tech companies like Microsoft and Amazon are in Seattle and not Silicon Valley. These areas are the magnet for great technological minds that serve the world.
  8. It is a tall order to bring the best minds within a small nation like Malaysia. Most tech multinational companies that exist in Malaysia are sales outfits and they do not do real R&D in Malaysia. There were not many job opportunities for engineers and techies in the early days of MSC, and many ended up working in sales and marketing or custom-development arm of these tech company.  Credit is also due to two other gentlemen that help brought masses to Cyberjaya – Benjamin Ong of Prima Group and Micheal Ong of Quill Group Bhd – as well as the F&B life into the city. To this day, their buildings and their eateries are fully catered.
  9. I had the privilege to work as a software engineer at Intel MSC and work with talented pool of engineers. I also had the opportunity to work with young companies and software developers and talent was definitely what we lack of. But perhaps experience, confidence, perseverance, business acumens and the list goes on. There were many innovation created that Malaysia was not ready for back then.
  10. As for both of us, we decided to put our money where our mouth is. We live, work and play here happily. Over the years, we see more and more young couples, families and friends move to Cyberjaya. Things are changing. We are happy and blessed to have great neighbours and living in a peaceful city. Things do get better and we applaud Cyberview for making great efforts to make Cyberjaya liveable. We are happy to see that there are more activities for children who want to take up coding, varied learnings and of late multiple sporting activities  for the community within and outside Cyberjaya to participate. Without its people, its location and activities, the aspirations and dreams are just marketing buzzwords.

    Young minds at the Minecraft Gaming Competition 2016

    Young minds at the Minecraft Gaming Competition 2016

  11. That aside, we hope Cyberjaya becomes truly the entrepreneurial hub and living technology location that brings more technologist, great talents, innovators and business owners. Even though we no longer work in tech-space, we will continue to grow our small ventures from Cyberjaya – living, working and playing here.
  12. We expect Cyberjaya to continue to be the change, model and contributor to Malaysia’s future for  years to come. Let’s continue to make Cyberjaya a Malaysian dream.

With Peace,
Ritz & Eliza
Resident of Cyberjaya

 

City Spin & Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2017

Diversity is beautiful – everyone is unique, yet we should celebrate the difference. Due to it’s immense popularity, history, and significance, SCKLM 2017 is one of the highlights for most runners. Never have I ever seen a running event which brings thousands of people from various background, fitness level, and goals! The beauty of diversity among runners was highlighted and deeply appreciated both before and during the event.

Before The Big Day

My running group, Kyserun Krew, organized a friendly, fun run called City Spin 2017. It was a short 4.5K run around KLCC and Jalan Ampang, giving runners a quick tour of KL and what to anticipate for tomorrow’s event. Everyone had a good time, taking photos of the iconic buildings and landmarks in the city. Thankfully, the morning rain was starting to subside so the weather was good too!

IMG_9391IMG_9392 IMG_9390

Besides shaking out the butterflies in your stomach before the big day and to stretch out those legs, the main aim of this event was to gather various running crews through out Malaysia, as well as welcome those who came from abroad such as Indonesia, Korea, and other countries. After all, what better way to break the ice among runners other than to run? Every running crew might have different principles and culture, yet united by the same, common love for running.

IMG_9389 IMG_9388 IMG_9387
All photo credit belongs to Syahiran of Kyserun Krew. Thank you!

On the Big Day

At 4 in the morning, I found myself catching the train among a sea of blue sleeveless tops. I was glad that I will be able to arrive early and not worry about parking at the event venue. On the train, I can hear different conversations; some were really serious yet confident, discussing about their strategies and training for the past few months, while others were nervous, excited, or sleepy. Yet, everyone had a single goal in mind: To complete SCKLM, in whatever distance that they chose.

Never have I ever seen so many runners congregate in a single location, except at SCKLM events! Besides runners, the crowd was overwhelming; the streets were packed with not only runners, but supporters, curious on-lookers, and security enforcers too. SCKLM has turned into an event that should be celebrated and inclusive to everyone. To overcome the massive crowd, take advantage of the facilities that the organizer have provided for this event, such as the free train service (my favorite part of the event), bag drop (pack everything that you need, it’s going to be a loooong day), and freebies from the sponsors. Most importantly, come early and prepared, at least 45 mins before your starting to time so you are not rushed to go to the bag drop counter, do your pre-race rituals, and get into the correct starting pen.

Year after year, SCKLM has been a good and memorable experience for me. What I love most about it was not the route or the medal, but the high spirit and energy through out the event. Every runner will feel like a winner! Without a doubt, I will definitely be back again for more next year.

Alhamdulillah, yesterday (the Sunday before Ramadhan starts), FTPC members and volunteers distributed Ramadhan packs at Henderson Block 93, Singapore.

Those who joined and ran with us virtually get Nashata EZ Skirt at the end of the run. The proceeds goes to FTPC. We try very hard to make sure we get to raise as much funds for the charity of choice of the runners.

Despite the hard work and tremendous weight lost, all of them would want to run for charity again. #takserik.  Singapore – we will do this again, improved insyaAllah.

MONOCHROME can be BRIGHT!

Don’t forget! You can still wear bright colors in monochromatic outfits. You can try shades of hot pink, green and turquoise. Monochrome is just subtle, yet sharp.  It is beyond black and white and you can look Simple, Sporty and Stylish – just what a modest lady needs!
