Callum Nicholls shares his top recommendations to achieve optimal fitness. 

Maintain a balance

When striving for peak physical fitness and athletic performance in the UAE's sunny climate, it's common to prioritise training while neglecting recovery. Yet, recognising and emphasising both aspects is crucial for reaching optimal health and overall well-being. Finding harmony between training and recovery ensures you not only look your best but also feel your best. Who wouldn’t want that when Privilee offers an ever-growing range of beach clubs, pools, and resorts to spend your free time at? 

Create a routine

Being active plays a pivotal role in enhancing your physical capabilities, whether it’s strength training, cardiovascular exercise, or one of the many fitness classes available on Privilee. A consistent fitness routine will improve your cardiovascular health, build muscle mass, and increase overall endurance. Regular training is scientifically proven to boost mood, alleviate stress, and promote mental well-being by releasing endorphins and enhancing cognitive function.

One thing I love about my Privilee Membership is the variety and convenience of the gyms available. Wherever I am, depending on my schedule, I can always find a gym close by to pop into and get a workout in. This makes it incredibly easy to stick to my routine and not skip sessions. A few of my go-to gyms are:

Prioritise recovery

However, training alone is not sufficient to maximise your performance and prevent injuries. The importance of recovery is essential, as it provides the body with the necessary time and resources to repair, rebuild, and adapt to the stresses imposed during training. Recovery can be a combination of techniques, including adequate sleep, proper nutrition, active rest, stretching,  foam rolling, massage, and cold-water immersion. 

I use my Privilee membership to incorporate recovery into my routine, taking full advantage of the low-impact fitness classes, saunas, and cold water therapy facilities. Below are my recommendations on where to go if you want to help your body recover!

I hope this helps you understand the vital role that balancing recovery and training plays in achieving peak fitness and well-being. By focusing on both aspects, you can optimise performance, prevent injuries, and maintain a sustainable fitness regime for the long haul. Remember, your body deserves the care and attention it needs to thrive, so embrace the power of recovery alongside your training efforts.
