SUPPORTING YOUR ONGOING HEALTH AND WELLBEING JOURNEY

So, you’ve completed a RigRun Fitness Challenge. Now what?

RigRun competitions aren’t just about encouraging offshore teams to dabble in getting more exercise for a few weeks. Instead, we want to help you build on the fitness goals you’ve accomplished so you can maintain a sustainable, healthy lifestyle after the final whistle blows.

That starts with recovery.

Why is recovery important?

During RigRun Challenges, you’re putting your body (and mind) under pressure to win prizes and points for your team. And though exceptional sports prowess is part of going for glory as a high-performing athlete, your recovery is equally important.

Providing several benefits during repetitive high-level training and competitions, recovery interventions are essential in ensuring you stay in peak physical condition, avoid fatigue, and steer clear of injuries.

So, when it’s time for the next RigRun challenge, your team will have an even better chance of climbing the leaderboards and regularly scoring maximum daily points.

The RigRun Recovery Zone

We understand that when a RigRun fitness challenge ends, you often won’t have the luxury of taking time off to recuperate and get yourself geared up for the next one. That offshore rota wheel keeps spinning, and business as usual can mean that health and fitness once again takes a backseat.

Which is why we’re committing three months to your recovery with a range of interactive webinars that are specifically tailored to the unique health needs of personnel travelling to, and working on, remote worksites.

RigRun Recovery Zone is an exclusive area where you can access a range of online resources to help you recover, stay motivated, and gear up for greatness at the next RigRun event.

Accessible from May to July, the Recovery Zone will feature pre-recorded and live webinars from accredited health and wellbeing professionals that cover a range of topics, including mindfulness, breathwork, nutrition, and mental health.

Accessing the Recovery Zone

Recovery Zone resources will be available to RigRun competitors through a dedicated link that will be sent out via the RigRun app* at the end of April 2024. Links for the live ‘Mastering Mindfulness’ sessions will be sent out via the RigRun app prior to each session taking place.

*Available to download through the App Store or Google Play. Latest version – 1.4.38.

MASTERING MINDFULNESS


with Louise Martin

Our bodies are always here with us and can only ever be experienced in the present moment. Yet, we pay very little attention to them unless something goes wrong.

Becoming more mindful of our bodies brings a whole host of physiological, emotional and mental health benefits. And in Louise’s 6-week ‘Mastering Mindfulness’ course, she’ll cover:

 

  • The positive effect of incorporating mindfulness into intense and gentle exercise
  • How mindfulness can help you nourish your body and avoid injury during your fitness journey
  • How you can begin to look forward to your workouts by practising mindfulness

THE POWER OF BREATH

Across six pre-recorded sessions, accredited breathwork teacher Eve Elsby will teach you about your breath, how it may be holding you back, and what you can do to improve its quality in the short and long term. 

Sessions can be accessed at any time through the links below.

Time and time again, nutrition has been shown to have a significant impact on our mental health. From our energy levels to our mood to our sleeping patterns, the diet we consume affects our daily functioning in a range of different ways.

However, Nutrition Expert Tom Gurney has got you covered with two insightful pre-recorded webinars that address your daily nutritional choices and how these can help you thrive in the offshore environment, even when you’re on the night shift.
