GEMS 3: DRAGON BOAT RACE
Team Racing enhances work dynamics, increases motivation, improves communication, boosts self-confidence and breaks down barriers among team members.
As part of G.E.M.S Challenge, we bring to you our very own Dragon Boat Race!
Benefits of dragon boat racing:
People of all fitness levels can participate and the longer you do it, the fitter you'll become. It's a whole-body workout — your legs are the anchor, while the muscles in your arms, shoulders and back drag the paddle through the water. Great for strengthening your abs and core.
The spirit of healthy competition witnessed last year was undeniable. We came together as one and was part of this memorable event in GEMS inaugural boat race. We gained so much more than just physical strength. We overcame fears, learnt new skills, gained more confidence and forged friendship and camaderie not possible in other circumstances. In the midst of it all, we found ourselves, found new hope and strength we never though we had. We want to experience it again!
G.E.M.S - Empowering Me Series is not only about introducing and providing a platform for the community to discover new activities, regardless of age and fitness level. Other than to maintain an active lifestyle and enjoin goodness, we aim to inspire, motivate and empower the community. We encourage sharing of skills and knowledge we learnt. We reflect and apply the experiences in our daily life. Its not about just benefitting ourselves but benefitting all. Neither to compete or outdo anyone else, only to better ourselves to be more capable and beneficial for others... Lillaahi taala.
