For many, it has been hard to feel motivated to head back into the gym, but a new initiative might make it a little easier.
#FitnessIsTheAnswer, a collaborative social media campaign, is getting ready to launch its Fitness 4 EveryBody event, set to take place from Thursday, September 17, to Sunday, September 20.
Organised with the support of Dubai Sports Council, the four-day event will comprise more than 20 fitness providers offering free classes (online and in-person) or free access to gyms at more than 60 locations across the emirates.
Some of the participating fitness clubs include Fitness First, GymNation, Gold's Gym and Fitness 360, which will offer free access. Fitness companies Les Mills Middle East and Zumba will provide free virtual classes.
“We are proud to see the UAE fitness industry unite after what has been a tough period for everyone. The Fitness 4 EveryBody initiative is a great testament of the community spirit of the UAE fitness industry,” said Khalid Al Awar, director of Dubai Sports Council’s sports events department.
"We look forward to continuing to work with and support the leaders of the UAE fitness industry to create more opportunities for people to participate in fitness and to improve the health and well-being of UAE residents."
