IS YOUR TEAM IN RIGRUN FOR THE LONG RUN?

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.

Dealing with issues that most commonly affect workers such as yourself, including circadian rhythm disruption associated with night-shift work; the stresses of being away from home, friends and family; sleep deprivation and fatigue; and dealing with stressful situations such as travel delays and survival courses, our carefully curated programme is packed with techniques, tips and tricks that will have you feeling healthier.

A host of international sport experts and athletic champions will help you raise your game in your chosen sport. Whether it’s optimum supplementation you’re interested in, the latest science on running footwear and fitness trackers, or you just need a helping hand to improve your form, we’ve got you covered!

Plus, we’ll also be getting you pumped up and ready for action at our next RigRun competitive challenge, ‘Qualifiers’, which starts 4th September!

Accessing the Recovery Zone
Links and instructions for all Recovery Zone webinars will be sent out via the Announcements section in the RigRun app. So, make sure you have downloaded the latest version of the app for all the updates.

And if dodgy WiFi gets in the way of you enjoying one of the webinars live, don’t panic. You can watch a full recording of the session later in our archive.
