Amina Sports Hijab and Amin Extended Sports Hijab

This year, Nashata is producing more new products that mirror modesty for sportswomen. They are Amina Sports Hijab and Amin Extended Hijab. These two hijabs share very much the same purpose that is to cater for modest sportswomen to do activities. Looking at both with a single glance, the most visible disparity you can see between these two is the design.

Wear It Pink October


I started running pink early October wherever I go.

In this essential month of October, we have launched programmes to spread awareness in conjunction of Pink October Breast Cancer Awareness. Our main highlights was to promote self-defense among ladies. On the 21st. October we held a free Kickboxing class for our customers at the Hammerfist Fight Club to promote health awareness on breast cancer. To pay respect for the breast cancer survivors, we showed support and care by wearing pink on that day. We limited the number of participants to 20 people as the fight studio isn’t that big. Many people showed up more than we expected and most importantly, they were all in pink! Frankly, we could not not help feeling a little bit moved to see how dedicated the supporters were that day. Kudos to people who care!

Here are some pictures of our participants showing their pink spirit.

Sisters standing up for each other. We gotcha’ back sis!



Having fun learning self defense with our trainer, Benny.


Give up or give it all you’ve got! We chose the latter.

Here are some short clips of us giving our best in spite of zero experience in kickboxing.

We highlighted our pink coloured products and encouraged our customers to share their post on instagram wearing pink to show support through social media.

Our dear customer, Azzie Mohd showed support wearing full Nashata items in pink.

Until the end of the month, even our founder, Eliza Noordin portrayed endless support by wearing pink Heather Floral Top during participating a marathon in Jakarta.

In a nutshell, though October has come to an end, Pink October spirit will always live in our hearts. Hats off to the breast cancer survivors! Our thoughts and prayers will always be with you heroes.

Pacer duty done…..with less drama!

It’s a wrap! Alhamdullilah, I was given a great opportunity to be one of the pacers for all the series in Men’s Health Women’s Health 21km Night Run which held in Penang, Putrajaya and the last one in Puteri Harbour, Johor Bahru last week. And it was pretty awesome!

AIAVitalityNightRun2017JB-DDY_2009-PhotobyAllIsAmazing

Team Pacers 😉

I was the pacer for 2 hours 30 minutes for Penang edition, 2 hours 20 minutes for Putrajaya edition and last one at Puteri Harbour last week, it was 2 hours and 10 minutes. Do read about my previous experience being pacer here → https://blog.nashata.com/?p=6389.

Since this was my third time become a pacer, alhamdullilah everything went well and of course gain more confident and less drama..hehe..

IMG_3536

For slimming effect, cross your legs when people taking your pic..hehehe 🙂

Oh ya, this is my first time running in Johor and of course I’m the one who’s running with widest smile. And the Nashata sisters ran too. Yayy!

IMG_3528

Nashata sisters finished modestly after running and of course still look beautiful as always! heeee

Alhamdullilah, we ‘re given the opportunity to be interviewed by NTV 7 before the event started.

IMG_3505

Overall, the water stations and traffic were well organised, we maintained our pace around 6.00 to 6.15 min/km to finish in 2 hours and 10 minutes. If you always train yourself to run sub 6.00min/km, you can go for sub 2 hours for half marathon 😉

IMG_3506

My favourite moment that night,is when my all- time- favourite running idol, best known as Malaysian’s Fastest Marathoner 2016, paced me for 500m before reached finishing line! Yes, Edan paced me towards finishing line!  And it feel like I’m running on the red carpet with flowers showering my way towards the dais..heee..And after that we accidentally met back at the nearby shop,..and here is our photo together 😉 Yayy, thanks Edan! Hope to meet you again in the future, insyaALLAH.

IMG_3527

Edan is very inspiring and determined. I wish one day I could be like him too, aminnn.

How do I trained?

It has been a while, since last December 2016, I had a break from any events due to busy schedule with classes and exams. But, I never miss my usual training every evening to maintain my stamina and momentum. I run at least 10 km with average pace 5.45min /km ,4 times in a week, and other 3 days I run at my easy pace,..and do daily planks as my daily routine.

The secret is,..set your goal, aim..and train for it! Get rid of any excuses that will disrupt your goal, be confidence and persistent to what you want to achieve. The utmost important is..always believe that you can do it. When your mind believed it, your body will achieve it. InsyaALLAH.

“Believe you can and you’re halfway there”

How do I eat? 

I do eat like other people but the different is I know what i am eating and I care about it. I never miss my meals. I eat carbs for lunch and dinner. I always take bananas and half boiled eggs every morning and after running for energy and muscle recovery. Don’t skip your meal and don’t overeat.

And yes! I had char kueh teow for my post running treat..and it’s yummeh!

Till then, we’ll meet again, keep fit and be inspired! ?

Sticking to Your New Years Goals Part 3: “I want to eat breakfast everyday.”

While breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, it is often the hardest to implement. Morning-times tend to be rushed; you overslept, you have to get the kids ready for school and make it to work on time, you can’t find your keys. It’s no wonder why so many people skip it.

However, adding breakfast into your daily routine may be worth it. A nutritious breakfast has been shown to:

  • Aid in a more nutritionally complete diet
  • Give a mental edge
  • Help with energy and alertness throughout the day
  • Provide more strength and endurance during physical activity
  • Lower cholesterol levels
  • Aid in weight control and appetite control

 

WHAT SHOULD BREAKFAST CONSIST OF?

coffee-722270_960_720

Adding a lean protein to your breakfast, such as eggs, Greek yogurt or cottage cheese, will keep you feeling fuller longer. It may even hold you over until your lunchbreak at work!

Complex carbohydrates, like oatmeal or fruit, provide a slower-releasing energy which will last throughout the day.

Healthy fats, such as nuts, nut butters or avocado will not only provide you with extra energy during workout time, but will also promote the fat-burning process.

A little caffeine can give you that quick mental alertness that you so desperately need in the mornings!

 

HOW CAN I EAT BREAKFAST EVERYDAY?

  • Wake up early enough to give yourself time to prepare and eat breakfast
  • Prepare breakfast ahead of time: overnight oats are a great option
  • Have a ‘no-cook’ breakfast like Greek yogurt with granola or cottage cheese and fruit
  • Take breakfast on-the-go: Quest bar or a piece of fruit with nuts are good choices
  • If you are able you might even take some breakfast with you and eat it while you are at work

I hope these tips were beneficial and can help you to add breakfast into your daily routine, inshallah.

What Is the Best Time to Exercise?

Many people swear by early morning sweat sessions as the best method for losing weight. But what about those of us who couldn’t fathom a workout that early in the morning? The good news is that finding the perfect time for exercise is more about personal preference than it is about physiological benefits.

phonto (7)

What is important is finding a time of day that works best for you in order to make exercise a habit.

Morning Perks

  • You have the psychological pleasure of knowing your workout is done.
  • It is easier to keep a consistent routine in the morning.
  • There is less room for other responsibilities and time pressures to interfere.
  • A full day of work can take a toll on one’s willpower, no matter how well-intentioned you may be.
  • Early workouts may help with a more sound sleep, while workouts too late in the day may make it harder to fall asleep at night.

Advantages of Later Workouts

  • Body temperature is higher later in the day, which leaves the muscles less stiff and less susceptible to injuries.
  • Muscle strength and endurance may be at its peak in the afternoon.
  • The body produces more testosterone later in the day which is important in strength and muscle building.
  • You may have more energy later in the day after fueling your body with some nutritious meals.

Listen to Your Body

While there may be some advantages to working out at different times of the day, those differences would be minor, with a bigger significance lying in the psychological effects of the workout. If you are not a morning person there would be no advantage to forcing yourself out of bed at 5 am to workout, only to be miserable the entire time. The benefits of working out come in consistency, so pick a time of day that will allow you to enjoy your workout and become consistent.

Be Realistic

Picking the perfect time of day may not be as easy as choosing a number on the clock. Take a look at your daily schedule and pick a realistic time that will not interfere with other responsibilities. If your days are packed from morning until night, a morning routine might be best. If you have a free schedule after work and morning is not your thing, go for an after-work routine. If you have some little bits of free time in the middle of the day, throw in a quick 20 minute workout in the afternoon.

Consider the Social Setting

To some people, the social setting is a very important aspect of their workout. Some prefer solitude and alone time which you can get early in the morning, in the middle of the day during the work-week, or much later at night. Others prefer a gym atmosphere with plenty of people to keep them motivated. The gym tends to be packed mid-morning, or around rush-hour time between 5-6 pm. You may even do better with an exercise partner. If that is the case, try to come up with a time that works for the both of you, even if that means a quick walk during your lunch break with a co-worker.

phonto (8)

The Bottom Line

The most important things to consider when coming up with a workout time is your preference, your schedule, and how you can be consistent. Exercise is not a “one-size-fits-all” kind of thing, so don’t be fooled by the people who say that one time of day is best. If you find mornings the best for you, just be sure to warm-up a little bit longer than normal to avoid injury. If afternoon/night time is better, keep the timing consistent and eat after your work out, not before.

A Proper Cool Down

This is going to be my last post for my #workoutwednesday series. I thought it was a good idea to close it out with a cool down routine, which is often the most overlooked aspect of exercise, although it is equally as important as the warm-up.

 

The Importance of a Cool Down

A cool down takes place after a workout with the goal of slowly getting the heart-rate, breathing, and body temperature back to its pre-exercise state. A proper cool down usually lasts for about 5-10 minutes, and should start off with some low-intensity exercises followed by stretches.

The benefits of cooling down include

  • Bringing the body’s physiological state back to normal
  • Reduces the risk for muscle cramps and spasms
  • Helps to offset some muscle soreness
  • Aids in muscle recovery
  • Removes waste build-up (like lactic acid) that occurs during physical activity
  • Prevents dizziness and fainting after exercise

 

How to Cool Down

Step 1: Light Activity

The first part of a quality cool down should start off with about 3-5 minutes of light activity. This can differ depending on the individuals workout.

Here are some examples:

  • After a run you might take a light jog for 2-3 minutes, followed by a 2-3 minute walk.
  • After a spin or bike workout you might pedal on a flat road (light resistance) for 3-4 minutes, followed by 1-2 minutes pedaling with no resistance whatsoever.
  • After a strength training workout it’s a good idea to do 3-5 minutes of dynamic stretching, like we saw in our warm-up routine, or even some yoga poses.
  • After a swimming workout one can swim a few leisurely laps around the pool.
  • Instructor-led fitness classes typically have a warm-up and cool down built into the routine.

Step 2: Stretching

The second and last part of a quality cool down will consist of stretching for another 3-5 minutes. You want to make sure you are focusing on the muscles that were being activated during the workout. In order to incorporate relaxation into my cool-down routine, I like to hold each stretch for 5 deep breaths.

Here are some examples of stretches:

Enjoy your cool down and don’t forget to incorporate it after every workout. If you are short on time, modify; something is always better than nothing.

Apakah warna pilihan anda untuk pakaian sukan?

 

Warna apa nak pakai ni

1. Tidak pasti apakah warna yang sesuai untuk pakaian sukan?

Inilah jenis warna yang menjadi pilihan orang ramai :

1) COLOR BLOCK

2) WARNA PASTEL

3) WARNA NEON

4) WARNA GELAP

5) WARNA KRAYON

6) Entah laaaa….

2. Apakah warna pilihan anda?

Sebenarnya kesemuanya CANTIK untuk dipakai tetapi adakah anda tahu jika pakai pakaian yang CERAH, ianya boleh membuatkan anda kelihatan sangat berbeza. Lihat gambar-gambar di bawah :

Effect Warna1

Penggunaan warna yang cerah dan ceria dapat menambahkan keyakinan diri semasa bersukan. Warna yang terang dapat menyerlahkan keceriaan dan semangat anda ketika bersukan.

Warna yang terang amatlah penting untuk sukan jenis berpasukan. Jika anda dan rakan kumpulan anda bertanding dengan pakaian yang menonjolkan tenaga kumpulan anda, ianya secara tidak langsung memberi kesan psikologi kepada pihak lawan. Pihak lawan akan rasa gentar akan warna pasukan anda yang terang dan bersemangat.

Bagaimana pula warna neon yang sangat terang? Ianya sangat sesuai untuk sukan individu dan aktiviti dalam gelap. Warna yang sangat terang dapat membantu anda untuk dilihat pada waktu malam atau di dalam keadaan yang gelap.

3. Penampilan ketika bersukan

Cuba anda lihat perbezaan yang ketara oleh model marathon kami di bawah ini, Intan Suraya setelah mencuba dan menggunakan pakaian NASHATA berbanding cara fesyen pakaian sukannya sebelum ini.  TAK! Ini bukanlah sebab solekan, kerana Intan sememangnya semulajadi cantik tanpa solekan. Tetapi, pilihan warna dan fesyen sukan yang sesuai dapat memberi penampilan yang berbeza untuk menampakkan imej anda.

Intan kelihatan lebih muda, ceria, bertenaga dan lebih berkeyakinan kini berbanding dahulu.

Intan transformation3

Warna kegemaran pelanggan NASHATA ialah warna-warni dan cerah kerana para atlet Muslimah amatnya ceria. Antara warna-warna yang menjadi pilihan ialah color block iaitu :

BIRU TURQUOISE, HIJAU, UNGU, OREN, FUSCHIA, KELABU, PINK, MERAH dan HITAM

Warna yang tidak terang seperti Kelabu dan Hitam juga cantik dan digemari ramai. Ianya dapat menampilkan sifat kesederhanaan pemakai dan ianya juga dapat dipadankan dengan warna-warna yang lain.

4. Apakah Warna trend kini untuk pakaian sukan?

Trend terkini termasuklah warna ‘heather’, atau berbelang-belang. Ianya sangatlah menarik dan menyeronokkan

red-heather-knit-t-shirt-fabric-texture-600x400

Pilihlah warna pakaian sukan yang dapat memberi keyakinan yang tinggi dan penampilan yang baik ketika bersukan. Ianya dapat membantu meningkatkan prestasi anda dan pasukan anda.
