FQ News – October 2012

FQ News…TV appearances, magazine articles, more trainers, more fitness opportunities. The Fitness Qatar Empire continues to grow!

It’s been a while since we last updated our FQ blog and we would like to apologise for this. The last 8 weeks has been nothing short of busy and we are incredibly excited to share with you our recent actions and experiences. We are also thrilled to reveal some future fitness opportunities specifically for you good people.

FQ on MBC4s Stars of Science

Four of the Fitness Qatar team were asked to run a series of challenges for the popular TV show. The contestants were pushed to their absolute limits under the strict expertise and guidance of the FQ trainers. From daring swimming tests to pushing their body to the point of being sick, the contestants battled a series of physical and mental challenges and can be very proud of their efforts. Check out the videos below to see more.


Bootcamp Qatar Continues To Go From Strength To Strength







FQs famous Bootcamp (bootcampqatar.com) is continuing to thrive with yet another write up in Time Out Doha Magazine (click to view). With such a huge demand for this service, an additional venue has also been added at the Museum of Islamic Art’s private park by the corniche. This will start on Sunday 4th November 2012 and take place at 6pm on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.

To register please email, info@fitnessqatar.com. Be quick as spaces will be limited. Please note that there are no changes to current bootcamps at education city and the corniche!

‘Quality’ Personal Training On Your Doorstep

With the arrival of two new trainers 6 weeks ago, we are proud of the positive impact they have made in such a short period of time. With incredibly busy schedules and nothing but positive feedback from their clients, the demand for class personal trainers is all too clear and FQPT is delighted to supply the best in the country. You will be delighted to know that plans are in place to add more ‘quality’ trainers very soon.
