Hey Obstacle Course Racers, meet our awesome trainer Oussema!
Originally from Tunisia, Oussema has been in the UAE since the past 7 years and was previously a fitness instructor for the UAE military. “I really enjoy my time at OCR Park – a military themed facility where I can train clients in the same style I did when I was with the military!” Now he is well-loved at OCR Park. Well, almost! He has a love-hate relationship with our members as he has a ‘laugh now, cry later’ mindset which he enforces on them whilst training to get the most out of each workout. People come out of his classes dripping with sweat, saying Oussema pushed them to their limits and they’re never coming back… only to come back the next day eager to do it all over again.
Oussema is a passionate instructor who will assess your fitness needs carefully and customize your personal training workouts accordingly.
Oussema enjoys basketball, watersports, weightlifting, as well as martial arts in his free time.
Meet Phanexis, our own almost-ninja at OCR Park.
Originally from the Philippines, Phanexis has been participating in obstacle course racing since the past 3 years. She has completed several Tough Mudder events and is now with us at the UAE’s largest permanent OCR facility. “I found obstacle course racing events like Tough Mudder so enjoyable, but I had to wait some time for these events to return – I wanted to do this all day, every day!” And she can now! She loves sharing and spreading her passion for Obstacle Course Racing with all of our visitors.
She specializes in ladies-only OCR group fitness classes at the park, and is well loved by women, men and kids alike due to her helpful and enthusiastic nature. If you are looking for a talented female trainer, Phanexis is your go-to.
Phanexis enjoys participating in triathlons, dragon-boating and volunteering activities in her free time.
Originally from Scotland, Taylor has been in the UAE for the past 2 years.
Taylor was previously with Etihad working in cabin crew, living her life in the skies but is now climbing and swinging over our obstacles. “I’m still flying honestly – just not on planes anymore – just jumping off our 10 feet to freedom wall which literally feels like flying” laughs Taylor. She has fully devoted her time to obstacle race training and helps host awesome birthday parties and team building events at OCR Park. She also loves helping kids on the kids’ obstacles and aims to see their smiling faces after they have completed the course.
Everyone at OCR Park enjoys her joyfulness and positive attitude. “There’s no ‘I’ in team, so let’s all work together because at OCR Park, we leave no one behind – whatever it takes” declares Taylor.
Taylor enjoys circuit training, dancing, cooking healthy meals and learning about nutrition in her free time.
