Founded by Emirati cross-fit trainer Abeer Amiri, Emirati blogger and health-coach student Sarah Al Nowais, and American nutrition enthusiast and fat-loss coach Kristin Anderson, #theADmovement is inspired by the Abu Dhabi 2020 vision, which emphasises health as a top priority for the Emirate. The initiative seeks to provide a platform for Abu Dhabi’s women to support and motivate one another towards living healthier lifestyles by giving them the tools and information to empower them to make positive changes for themselves and their families.

This weekend attend the launch of #theADmovement, a series of ladies-only health and wellness event held across various venues in the capital featuring fitness activities, healthy food, networking and interactive workshops. The aim is to build a strong community of like-minded women who inspire one another to lead healthier lives.
