Commenting on the tour, Abdullah Al-Tamimi, said; “I spent what I consider were the best six years of my life here at Aspire Academy. Coming back here and being able to share what I’ve learnt with the next generation of aspiring athletes is something I truly value. When I was younger, I used to look up to other athletes, and I feel very privileged to be an inspiration to others. Aspire Academy is where all the key foundations for my career were laid and will be very beneficial to everyone who comes here.

“As a pro-athlete, I burn almost 2,000 calories a day, so it is important to pay attention to what I consume. I focus on having three big meals and I distribute protein snacks within my training schedule. A balanced diet is essential to fuel high performance.” Aspire Academy is keen on developing well-educated sports champions, through a wide range of informative tools. Hosting graduates inspires students to eagerly work on themselves to obtain a healthy, active lifestyle.
