We believe that modesty and fitness are not mutually exclusive. Our mission is to cultivate a generation of fit Muslim women that demolish that stereotype; not only can we take you down with intelligence and rhetoric, but we can also dominate in sports. Our bodies are just as strong as our minds. Take notice: we are our own role models, and confident ones at that. Who says Muslimahs can't be athletes?
Focus on the nutrient density of the foods you eat.

"Nutrient density is a simple way to connect nutrients with calories. More nutrients for less calories. Nutrient dense foods give you the most nutrients for the fewest amount of calories.”

When you concentrate on nutrient density vs calories in a food, you’ll naturally gravitate towards fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables will not only help you lose weight, but they will transform your body from head to toe by giving it the nutrients it needs and craves to perform at its best.

Lift weights.
You will not get bulky. You will get stronger and burn more calories throughout the day because you have more muscle.But try not to isolate muscles - work outs that incorporate several muscles/muscle groups are better for your body.

We love pineapples because they satisfy our sweet tooth… but they’re annoying to cut up with a knife, and canned pineapples are a bad option due to added sugar.This pineapple slicer is not only cheap, convenient, and helpful, but it leaves you with an empty shell at the end. Tropical fruit salad in a pineapple, anyone?

Reminder that loving yourself is an essential part of the fitness journey. You are striving to be fit and healthy because you’re being kind to your body, kind to yourself, kind to your mind. Labor of love.

Work out as soon as you wake up in the morning. If you need an energy boost, have half a banana/a small handful of raisins. When you get your work out done early, you don’t have to think about it for the rest of the day (no chance for procrastination), and you’ll start out your morning right! Better than coffee? You bet!

How to make your curls more effective

When you curl dumbbells in a standing position, you lose tension at the top of the curl, making the move less effective. How can you maximize the effectiveness?

1) Get into runner’s lunge. Keep your back leg straight and off the ground and your front leg bent at a 90 degree angle. Make sure your knee is aligned with your ankle.
2) Keep your back straight and lean forward so that your chest is resting on your knee.
3) Curl your dumbbells in this position! Curls are already an effective bicep workout, but by maximizing tension in this position, you’ll get the most out of the move!
