Fitness tour schedule
Wellfit, the UAE-based gym, is set to elevate the Dubai Fitness Challenge this year with their innovative contribution. Their unique involvement in the event revolves around a 20ft-long shipping container, which will journey to different Dubai locations. It begins its fitness tour at DIFC from October 28 to November 3; then moves to Dubai Silicon Oasis from November 4 to 12; The Sevens Stadium from November 13 to 19; and finally, it will be stationed in Jumeirah Lake Towers from November 20 to 26.
The shipping container, originally designed for cargo transport, has been repurposed by Wellfit to house a comprehensive collection of exercise equipment, including weights, medicine balls, and cardio machines.
The crate has also been retrofitted with grip bars and handles to facilitate bodyweight movements like pull-ups, dips, and leg raises.
What's in store for participants
These exercises are all part of the gym’s signature training classes. ‘Fortify’ combines Olympic lifts and gymnastics, while traditional compound movements like squats, deadlifts and presses are covered by their ‘Lift’ class. For the cardio-crazed, the ‘Ignite’ class offers a bootcamp-style aerobic workout that targets the full body. Wellfit’s signature Yoga class is also on the rotation, as a slower-paced option.
Participants in the classes are encouraged to engage in friendly competition, building not just muscles but also social relations.
Additionally, prizes such as premium sunglasses and clothing, meal-prep vouchers, as well as professional golf lessons will be awarded to those who burn the most calories and attend the most classes per location.
To be eligible for the prizes, participants must register with Wellfit’s fitness software partner Spivi, which tracks these metrics.
