Throughout the month of the 30×30 challenge, residents can access a virtual calendar of events which includes sports, health, and wellness programs, in order to support those taking part in the challenge to complete their 30 days of fitness. Similar to previous years, there will be a plethora of free classes, challenges, and activities for individuals to engage in, so residents can chose to try a new activity or sport which they have not tried before. Several gyms and fitness centers across Dubai are also expected to participate in this year’s Dubai Fitness Challenge with classes of Zumba, spinning, HIIT, Pilates, and yoga to be among the option for residents to choose from.

Previous years of the Dubai Fitness Challenge have proved extremely successful, with the 2019 edition hosting over 1.1 million participants. Dedicated fitness villages were opened at Kite Beach and Festival City Mall to welcome visitors for their daily exercise, as well a the option for virtual workouts too. Last year Joe Wicks, also known as the Body Coach made an appearance at the event and lead the region’s largest-ever HIIT class at Skydive Dubai.
