Umair is a US qualified personal trainer who has worked across USA and Dubai for some of the most sought-after fitness facilities before moving to Rome. In these uncertain times the safest way to keep fit is to train outdoors!
Umair provides group classes in Villa Borghese on Tuesdays at 6.30pm, Thursdays at 9am and Sundays at 11am and as well as one-on-one or training for two in these three prime locations in town: Parco di Adriano Castel Sant’ Angelo, Villa Borghese, circo massimo and Stadio Olimpico.
Classes consist of Bootcamp training, a type of workout that originated in the U.S. Navy and consists of interval exercises including weight lifting, medicine ball throwing and explosive routines, but also callisthenic exercises used to tone, increase cardiovascular efficiency and strength. All equipment is provided and sanitized on-site in accordance with current anti-Covid regulations. All participants need to do is bring a yoga mat, towel and water. Classes last 50 minutes and the last 10 are devoted to fun team activities such as “thug of war”, “relay races” and “cone drills” . “With the suspension of events organized by the embassies in the capital, the English-speaking community working and living in Rome has been missing out on activities to bring people together. This initiative allows not only to get together and stay fit, but also to create a dialogue between Romans and non-Romans.”
The maximum number of participants allowed for group classes is 24 people and they can register to book their slot on waymorefit.com
