Busy is an understatement to say the least at Fitness Qatar at the moment. Full personal training schedules, exciting developments, countless meetings, writing programmes and fitting in our own training sessions make us realise that there really isn’t enough hours in the day! The workload is big but at FQ, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
It’s very exciting times with so much changing week in week out. This blog post will highlight some latest and future happenings in Fitness Qatar.

Case Study – Jamie
One of FQs clients, Jamie has kindly allowed us to highlight his progress while on one of our personal training programmes. We will update weekly or every two weeks via Facebook (www.facebook.com/fitnessqatar) and/or the FQ blog (www.fitnessqatar.com) regarding his progress.
We will include information such as…
- exact training modalities targeted and why (i.e. SMR, Muscle Activation, Primary Lifts etc)
- video clips of exercises performed during actual workout sessions
- details of his nutrition and supplemental plan
- updates of his stats including bodyfat, bodily measurements and lifting numbers
- how his training is managed and incorporated in relation to his lifestyle
To start with, Jamie underwent a health screen, a functional movement screen and participated in many fitness tests relevant to his goals. His exact profile, goals, stats etc will be revealed shortly. Before this however, we want to share with you a short video clip of Jamie during his movement screen performing overhead squats with a dowel. This is one of many lower body movements we have clients perform in order for us to evaluate movement pattern quality, mobility and stability. This will identify limitations and asymmetries of his movement which we will later aim to correlate with solutions.
Jamie’s squat depth is actually quite good, indicating good hip mobility and core stability/coordination amongst other traits. However, if you look closely at the dowel, it moves forward slightly. This is an indication of tightness in the thoracic spine, lats and shoulders. Corrective exercise, mobility and flexibility drills will be key components to address this issue. It is worthwhile to note that this ‘tightness’ is not a major issue but exercises such as standing or seated wall slides (see video below) will certainly be very advantageous for Jamie.
We hope all the information we provide on Jamie and his progress will give you the viewer, an insight into how our FQ trainers train their clients and also how we can help YOU whatever your circumstances.
Again, a huge thanks to Jamie for ‘putting himself out there’ and we look forward to helping you reach your goals.
