TRX (short for total-body resistance exercise) is a form of suspension training that uses body weight exercises to develop strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously. It requires the use of the TRX Suspension Trainer, a performance training tool that leverages gravity and the user’s body weight to complete the exercises.
TABATA training is one of the most popular forms of high-intensity interval training (HIIT). It consists of eight rounds of ultra-high-intensity exercises in a specific 20-seconds-on, 10-seconds-off interval.
Zanzibar can be described as both mysterious and romantic. It is also the evocation of exotic, an archipelago nestled in the Indian Ocean which is 37 km off shore from Tanzania. It is a destination that is not only mysterious, but legendary as well.
From this remote outpost, at the hub of the monsoon trading routes, history was enacted. Journeys of discovery were planned, Sultanate empires were established, and the first medieval global village was founded. Zanzibar retains the imprint of its historic legacy in the tumbling streets of Stone Town, in the Arabic-inflected Swahili language and the rare antiques of the bazaars and markets. The haloes of its idyllic beach and the fragrant spice plantations make Zanzibar the ultimate Indian Ocean destination and the jewel in East Africas crown.
