Raid represents Movement. Feast represents good Nutrition and Protect represents Mental Health and good Sleep.
Together they form the 3Vikings holistic approach to wellbeing that supports people of all fitness and skill levels to thrive in health, fitness and life.
raid, feast, protect
Raid symbolises more than exercise, it is building a strong foundation based on mobility, strength and flexibility. 3Vikings combine proven training methods
that include human bodyweight movements, resistance training for strength, and knowledge from international level athletics training. We seek to understand the needs and capabilities of our members to develop effective and sustainable training.
At 3Vikings we prefer to keep nutrition simple and stick to the 80/20 rule. That means to eat healthily 80% of the time. Try to eat what Is in season because it is fresh and has more nutritional value. Say no to refined sugars and sugary drinks. Eat a large variety of fruits and vegetables - the more colour the better. Fish, avocado and good oils should be in your menu. Reduce saturated fat intake and think about how much red meat you actually need as it rapidly ages the body after 35. The Viking diet was mainly fish, beans and barley and they were the gladiators of the sea!
It is very important to protect our mental health of the negative impacts and pressure we face every day. Combination of exercising and being outdoors is scientifically proven to increase mental wellbeing. A healthy mind is supported by a good night sleep and if you exercise (raid) and eat well (feast) you sleep better. Reducing the amount of blue light from LED’s, TV’s, Phones and Computer screens an hour or two before bed will also help with sleep. Protect is also about developing a growth mindset and building resilience to better cope with challenges and stress.
Our coaches train others as they would themselves, they are mindful of the changing dynamics of the individual and constantly seek to tune training methods for sustainable fitness empowerment.
