The Dubai Fitness Challenge launched this week
HH Sheikh Hamdan wants to encourage Dubai residents to get active this winter. The Crown Prince launched the second-ever Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC) this week, calling on citizens to try to do 30 minutes of exercises for 30 days.
The flagship fitness event – also known as the Dubai 30×30 – first launched in 2017 and saw an estimated 1 million people across Dubai take part for the inaugural event. Event organisers are hoping that this year’s event will be an even greater success, with plenty of activities planned for the opening Weekend Carnival, including dancing, yoga, spinning and basketball classes.
Running from October 28 until November 22, the DFC will see a range of activities and events planned across the city, all promoting wellness, health and fitness.
“My vision for the Dubai Fitness Challenge was to create a truly inclusive movement across our city and the wider UAE, to sustainably enhance the health and long-term well-being of people of all ages, abilities and levels of fitness. This year, we have a target of one million participants and I urge you all – residents and visitors – to invest in yourselves and your happiness – so you can better contribute to the welfare of your families, your communities and the global society. Take this opportunity, join the challenge and let’s move towards collectively making Dubai the most active city in the world,” said HH Sheikh Hamdan.
