Want to get in shape? Those looking to drop some pounds now have an extra push, with a chance to receive gold with every kilogram they lose.
The Dubai Municipality has launched a new weight loss programme called Your Weight in Gold, which will run for 30 days from 19 July to 16 August.
All participants have to lose a minimum of two kilograms to win gold and they will then receive a gram of gold for every other kilogram they lose.
Entrants' weight will be measured on the day they register and on the final day of the programme and those who shed the most weight during the 30 days will be entered into a draw to win a gold coin worth Dhs20,000. Wow!
INFO: To register entrants must be weighed at either Gate 3 of Zabeel Park, the main gate of Khawaneej jogging track, the start of Mamzar Beach jogging track, Gate 4 of Safa Park, or the main gate of Al Barsha Pond Park between 8pm and midnight from Friday 19 July onwards. Bring an Emirates ID card.
