Name: Yousaf Abaseen
How often do you exercise?
I used to exercise six times a week (basically every day except Sunday). Since COVID restrictions have led to the gym being shut down on weekends, I now exercise five times a week.
How has regular exercise affected your life?
Regular exercise allows my life to be more organized and productive. Even on days when I don’t do much, I have a feeling of fulfillment if I’ve exercised. This helps me be less stressed and makes me a disciplined person.
What do you suggest to those who are just taking up a sport or starting to exercise?
Consistency is probably better than perfection. Showing up regularly and developing a strong habit is far more fruitful than striving for perfection every single time. It’s a long-term commitment and should be treated as such.
What are the first three things that come to mind when you hear the word “sports”?
Running outside, football, and a fit body.
Which Bilkent sports facilities (Sports Halls, playing fields, tennis courts, etc.) do you use?
I’ve been using the dorm fitness gym regularly.
