Dubai’s annual fitness festival is in full swing

The whole emirate is in the middle of trying to get a whole lot fitter thanks to the second edition of the Dubai Fitness Challenge. Following its successful debut in 2017, the city-wide event is once again encouraging its residents and visitors to get their hearts pumping daily for 30 minutes  over 30 days.

There are free fitness classes and activities spread all across Dubai, which is incentive enough to get up and give a new, healthier lifestyle a try. Brilliantly, this time around there’s the promise of greater variety in and number of events available for all to try. It’s the perfect opportunity to get outside, grab some fresh air and get fitter in the process.
Dubai Fitness Challenge runs from October 26 - November 24.
