Fun In The Sun: Stop Being Bored

Salam to all my beautiful ladies.
I pray this blog finds you in your best forms of health and wellness.

Many people are trying to live a healthy lifestyle now more than ever before. Many are looking for that circle of friends that will support this healthy lifestyle. As you know, if we want to build a healthy community and have more health aware circles then we should start with raising healthy children.

As a physical education teacher, I have been searching for the right way to approach my students and encourage them into living a healthy lifestyle and learn how to make healthy choices. The best way I have found is to make fun videos for them and it has done wonders in my teaching so far.

Here is a little fun video I made for my students.
Of course, I never do sports without Nashata being involved. The ultimate meaning if comfort.
In this video I wore the following for the two different characters presented.
– Athleisure and Azza topletics Modest Sports Shirts.
– Hooda Ellipse and Raazglove Sports Hijbs

Nashata Modest Swim Wear In Action

Hello there ladies,

My name is Nura, I am a physical education and swimming teacher. It is a little hard for me to find the perfect swim wear but Nashata’s swim wear has helped me do my job with less hassle.

I work with kids and my work is very sensitive, I have to be vigilant at all times and I have to be prepared for anything that might happen in the swimming pool. My swim wear needs to be light but covering. It also needs to be heavy duty but not something that will be uncomfortable. This swim wear have given me everything I need. I have not had issues with feeling that something is dragging me in the water.

I owned this swim wear for about a year and it is still holding up well. I am in the swimming pool at least 3 days a week with my students.

I really like the concept of having a body suit under the top, it feels nice. It can be problematic at times. If I have more than one swimming lesson in a row then bathroom trips can be a problem (it is not easy to change with the body suite under). Other than that, I am happy with my modest swim wear from Nashata 😀

Here is a little clip of me swimming 🙂

#ForABetter2017 Goals
So what are your fitness goals #ForaBetter2017? As for me, these are the 3 keys ones.

  1. Improve Fitness Level ?
    • Improve speed
      I want to be able to swim and run faster and longer. My average speed is 6.5 min/km and I would like to improve to 6 min/km for 5km run.
    • Reduce body fat percentage from acceptable level to fitness level.
      This seems to be a hard thing to do. More info on body fat here.
    • Increase strength
      Especially my abdomen and thigh areas.
  2. Make Fitness ? as a Routine
    • Workout at least 3 times a week, one hour per training
      The challenge is to find time. I get an hour in the morning before I start work. I take turns with my husband to send kids to school, so that we get our ME-time to exercise.
    • Cross training – swim or yoga at least once a week
      Yoga helps improve my strength and flexibility while swimming improves my stamina. I tend to do yoga more often as it is less time consuming.
    • Weekend workout with family
      It is a fun thing to do. I take my family climb a hill, run, cycle or any activities other feels like trying out. And the list goes on.
    • Escape with Family

      Escape with Family

  3. Support family & friends ? to be healthy
    • Encourage others to stay fit, run with them or ask them to run with you. I do that with family members. My friends are way ahead than me and they push me forward.
    • Share tips and tricks with family and friends. For example, I add an additional soles in my running shoes to support my knees and legs to avoid knee injury and I do share it with my friends with knee pain.
    • Prepare and have healthy meals with family and friends
      Purchase healthy food for your office like apples and banana, and dine at restaurants that serve healthier options.

Do share your fitness goals with other on social media by adding #ForABetter2017 & #nashata. We are giving away special vouchers worth RM100 each for best posts.

As the year 2016 winds down, let’s reward ourselves for all the effort and let’s look forward and hope #ForABetter2017. InsyaAllah.

Happy New Year!

✌ & ❤,

Nashata’s modest performance swimwear is finally here after more than a year working on it. This is very close to my heart as I love swimming and I wanted my sisters to be able to enjoy swimming for performance. My love for swimming started at 10 years old, when my cousins, brother and I went for swimming lessons with Mr. Wong at the Ipoh City Council Swimming Pool Complex. Years after that, while at the university, I continued swimming frequently. I would take time off to lap swim either in between classes or when I get stuck with my projects. I always got out of the pool with a clearer mind. That was also when I started to improve swimming performance. When you are in a pool with swimmers segregated by slow, medium, fast lanes, you just do not want to be in the slow lane. What I thought was fast, wasn’t fast enough. I was wearing conventional swimwear back then and when I started to wear hijab, the only swimwear I could feel good swimming in was a full body suit. This is because the modest swimwear I tried gave me anti-laminar flow and dragging effect. It is unpleasant and difficult to improve swimming performance when there is a drag.

Nashata Sibaha for Performance

Sarah feels the difference swimming in Nashata’s Sibaha that now she wants to swim even more!

1. Why improving swimming performance is important?

  • Swimming is a good low-impact, full-body exercise. You get to move your full body with little ‘pounding’ on your body as to compared to running and jumping. This reduces risk of injury, especially the joints. As you get older, low-impact exercise like swimming is more gentle on your body.
  • Improves heart and lung function. The rhythm you get into when you swim improves your breathing and lung capacity.
  • Swimming frequently improves endurance. Your body just gets stronger and stronger.
  • It is good for your brains. Repetitive movement like swimming improves blood flow to brain. Perhaps this explains why I always get out of the pool with a clearer mind.

However, I was not able to get the same swimming experience in modest swimwear available in the market. I needed a modest performance swimwear that maintains laminar flow and lesser dragging effect so that I could focus to swim faster and longer.

Nashata Sibaha for Performance gives freedom to swim swiftly and modestly, so that I can reach my full potential.

Together with Ida Bakar, we design and test Nashata Sibaha for performance and introduce key concepts in modest swimwear that are aesthetic and athletic.  The concept of our swimwear is to wear Nashata’s body suit and pair it up with Nashata’s Sibaha tops on the outside.

2. Why Nashata’s sleeveless body suit?

  1. The tight body suit gives good support and comfort
    Other than easy movement, the tight body suit gives good upper-body support and comfort
  2. No additional innerwear required
    With the body suit, you need not wear additional sports bra or undies. No bra is required because the body suit is very tight. You can insert removable bra pads provided if you like. For hygienic reason, the body suit comes with built-in crotch lining.
  3. You can swim, turn or dive with a peace of mind in the body suit. Your key body parts are covered & secured at all times! Your top on the outside would slide accordingly to maintain a good laminar flow.
  4. No strings or tying up is required and you can just focus on your swim. You get to reduce turbulence flow at different pressure and water condition.

3. What’s so special about Nashata’s Sibaha for Performance?
Aesthetic & Athletic

  1. Aesthetic in the water
    • Be it by the pool or in the water, Nashata Sibaha looks just great.
    • Visual slimming effect is achieved from the design and separate side panels
    • Aesthetic color combination that looks good underwater. The colors was tested for diving and under water.
    • A sporty design with safety in mind
      • Colored sleeves that enhances your hand movements in the water. It is nice to see when you swim in any strokes and visible when you wave your hands
      • Vest-like design on upper body, making you visible both on the surface and underwater.
  2. Athletic design for performance yet modest
    • Long loose top that maintains laminar flow of water and lesser dragging effect
    • Hijab attached to the top for a swift swimming experience
