Up to the Challenge

by Eddie Rayner

Another year of Dubai Fitness Challenge has been and gone, and here’s what several UAE schools did to participate.

Foremarke School, Dunecrest American School, and Fairgreen International School hosted many action-packed events for both students and parents. The exercises included circuit training, rugby, football, dance lessons, wake up and shake up exercises, yoga, and dodge. Horizon English School was particularly innovative, featuring Zumba fitness in music lessons, physical challenges in mathematics lessons, stop and dance during break and lunchtimes, and walk and jog-a-thons during lunchtimes.

Fitness First played a key role in helping the initiative achieve its ambitious health and wellness goals by encouraging residents to commit to 30 minutes of daily exercise for 30 days.
