Dubai, United Arab Emirates 14 November 2017:  Following the announcement that it will be hosting the first ever Dubai Fitness Challenge closing ceremony on November 17th and 18th, Dubai Festival City has revealed some of the event highlights set to take place during the weekend. Soon coming to an epic close, the Dubai Fitness Challenge, was especially designed to inspire Dubai's citizens, residents and visitors to boost their physical activity by committing to a minimum of 30 minutes of daily activity for 30 days

The two action packed days will see everything from dragon boat racing and ninja warriors to sunset yoga on the Festival Bay Helipad, spin classes and much more. Over the course of the weekend visitors will be treated to an appearance from a current world heavy weight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua, special edition IMAGINE shows throughout each evening, the Dubai Fitness Challenge awards ceremony and a Guinness World Record attempt for the most people simultaneously doing jump squats. The weekend of celebrations will culminate in a spectacular fireworks display across Festival Bay. 

Expect everything from ballet dancers to football freestylers as well as competitions and mass participation exercise classes designed to get the fun started!  Across Festival Bay there will be specific areas dedicated to sports as well as training and fitness, with plenty of chances to try out something new. A special children's fitness zone will give them the chance to enjoy climbing walls, trampolines and parkour, as well as Les Mills classes designed especially for ages two to 12 years old.
