Eid Mubarak!

We sat down with DMSF athlete and Youth Wellbeing Group member, Tommy Oladiti, to talk all things fitness and nutrition during Ramadan and the lessons he’s learned through the challenges it presents.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and for Muslims worldwide it is observed as a month of prayer, reflection, community and fasting. For approx. thirty days practicing Muslims will abstain from eating or drinking during sunrise hours, this often means meals are consumed very early in the morning, before dawn, and late at night, after sundown.

Seen as a time of spiritual reflection and self-improvement, for those interested in their training and physical fitness, Ramadan presents a unique opportunity for self-experimentation, but also presents its own challenges.

Congratulations to everyone on the successful completion of the Ramadan fast.

The thing that gets me through it, is my mindset
