Danil Bornventure will be putting his demanding training into practice this week at the Dubai Fitness Championships, representing RS Fitness.

Beating competitors from around the world to qualify in challenging opening rounds testing competitors both mentally and physically, Kenyan-born Danil has been put through his paces with a rigorous schedule to improve endurance and strength for the contest on 12-14th September at Dubai Mall.

Sponsored by RS Fitness LLC, Danil has been building strength and muscle throughout his body with a three month, 2-hour a day strict training regime combining core training with serious upper body workouts, using Precor, PurMotion and Marpo systems to maximise exercise.

66 finalists, both male and female, will compete across the range of gruelling tasks designed to push the body to the limit with Danil being tipped as a hot favourite after completing his qualifiers in 12.04 minutes, beating the men’s average of 14 minutes.

A passionate trainer, coach and fitness model, Danil was determined to reach the final stages of the competition to support the DBF’s ethos of the importance of exercise, health and fitness across the UAE, and to prove that through hard work and commitment, set goals are attainable.

A veteran sportsman, the 31-year-old has already claimed many titles throughout his career including 1st place PUMAFAAST Test in 2011, 1st place team category Pink Biathlon in 2012 and 2nd place Abu Dhabi Fittest Man in August 2013 through dedicated, effective training and living by his motto ‘Looking good is not enough. We stay fit, we live strong.’

With the schedule of workouts for this week’s final yet to be released, the heat is still very much on Danil to be at his mental and physical peak on the day.
