A Muslim that is fit for life

How to get more out of your life and feel good at the same time 

A 90-day coaching program for men that builds physical, mental, social and spiritual strength and resilience. Work on your goals and increase your impact without sacrificing your religion, health or family. 

The Muslim Fit coaching program is the Islamic response to the self-development and health industry that uses false claims and un-Islamic ethics and morals. In this program you will use the five Muslim Fit pillars to build motivation and holistic strength to work on your goals and cope with crisis. After the program, you will be able to work better with less effort. You will have energy at the end of the day. You have time to do what you enjoy. No more guilt for neglecting your religion, family or friends. Learn how to stop yo-yoing and dropping good habits as soon as ‘life hits’. 

Hollistic Health:

 Allah made you a unique and complex human being. Your strength and resiliency can’t be reduced to solely your mindset, physical health, (social) environment or spirituality. A one-sided approach to self-development is ineffective. This program is unique in that it considers all aspects of life. Holistic strength is ‘the ability to adapt and self-manage, in the face of social, physical, spiritual and emotional challenges.’

Islamic identity:

 We are going to be held accountable by Allah about what we did. Muslim Fit aims to realign the client’s goals to be in-service to his life’s purpose and elevate worldly goals to a form of Ibadah (worship). Secondly, Muslim Fit feels itself responsible to give our clients the best tools by using the best scientific and Islamic resources. We use effective techniques, can justify our choices and we are aware of possible side-effects. 

Accuracy over hype:

 Muslim Fit values quality and accuracy over hype and popularity. We create clarity in a world filled with gurus and overload of information. We read all the science and pseudo-science so you don’t have to. Years of research and practised is filtered down to a simple to follow program tailored to your unique context. 

“I have experienced Maarten as a very motivated and serious coach. Maarten is punctual, gives good advice and is a great accountability partner. I found it particularly strong that all his work was founded on scientific research. I highly recommend Maarten for his coaching services!”

Your 3-step process for being fit for life

Step 1

Realign moral compass

Every coaching program starts with plotting a course. What do you want and why is this important? Do these goals line up with your Islamic values and do they represent who you are or want to be? Reflecting on what we do and why is the most important step in achieving sustainable growth and wellness. 

Step 2

The foundations

In this phase we build the required mental, physical, spiritual and socio-environmental needs unique to your goal and context. Learn practical skills and new behaviour that help you become stronger and more resilient now and forever. 

Step 3

Crisis management

Working on your goals and taking care of yourself is easy when life is good. Most change programs fail when crisis situations occur. Learn how to manage with uninventable times of stress and calamity (Quran 2:155). In this phase, you’ll learn how to auto-regulate your change process. You get a personalized crisis plan which you can fall back on when calamity occupies your cognitive capacity. 

Meet your coach

Maarten van Elst discovered Islam through his search for self-improvement, he was inspired by Islam’s teachings, that amongst others promotes spiritual, social, physical and mental health. After converting to Islam in 2011, he didn’t see much of what was being preached being practised within the Muslim community. Combining his hands-on knowledge from competitive bodybuilding (pre-Islam), years of coaching experience and medical background (Maarten is a nurse anaesthetist), he launched Muslim Fit in 2015. 

“Maarten helped me, amidst a successful business and big family, to give an important place again for physical health and spirituality. This had made me more successful and stronger both mentally as well physically, while closer to Allah again, Alhamdullilah.”

FAQ

How long is the coaching program?

This is a 90 day (3 months) program. In these 90 days, we will cover all the basics for you to become strong and resilient. 90 days go over quick so expect a fair bit of work. Would you like to continue after these 90 days? After the program finishes there is an option to prolong the coaching and further solidify the newly learned behaviours if the client wishes. 

Can I use the workbook and crisis plan after the program?

 Yes! The workbook and crisis plan are exactly created for that purpose. In the workbook and crisis plan is a detailed description of which intervention you can use in times of growth or times of stress/trails.  

Is this program for me?

Do you: 

  • You feel forced to do most things and don’t get to do what you find important/enjoyable. 
  • You feel physically, mentally and spiritually weak, therefore, you lack energy throughout the day to perform 
  • You struggle with finding a balance between work, life and religion 
  • You quickly fall back into old habits whenever ‘life hits’. 
  • Your (social) environment makes it hard for you to stick to your goals 
  • You feel that you don’t have enough energy for the people around you 

You don’t struggle with any of these points? Then you probably don’t need our services. Did you say ‘yes’ to several of these issues? After the Muslim Fit coaching program, you have mastered the solution to fix these problems. 

I still have doubts if this program is for me 

No worries; we are there for you.
