Atheer Aranki: Pioneering Strength Training for Women
As the General Manager of a bustling industrial ice factory in Dubai, Atheer Aranki juggles daily challenges in production, finance, sales, and human resources. Finding time for fitness amid her professional, motherly, and wifely roles proved challenging, with gym memberships and personal trainers yielding no success.
However, her life took a transformative turn when she discovered kettlebell strength training at her son's martial arts school. Committed to becoming a coach, she pursued her StrongFirst certification, becoming the first Jordanian to attain it. This newfound strength empowers her to manage life's complexities. Atheer's passion lies in empowering Arab women through strength training, creating a supportive community like her experience with Strong Nomads.
