Devinder is a personal trainer and journalist who's helping people all over Dubai get fit and healthy
I’ve been a journalist for 18 years and worked primarily for national newspapers and magazines in the UK before moving to Dubai three-anda-half years ago. In October 2016, I set up a content agency with my better half and top Dubai photographer Mark Field. The Content Collective provides copy, photography and design solutions for companies across the region.
I’ve just celebrated the one year anniversary of setting up my personal training company: Fit Squad DXB. We’re a company of personal trainers, yoga instructors and nutrition experts. My business partner Daniel Wells and I started with just the two of us and we’ve just taken on our 18th personal trainer.
I think the UAE is the land of opportunity. If you’re good at what you do, then there’s the support and mechanics to make a success of yourself.
Women like Michelle Obama are my heroes; women who use their power and position to help and empower other women, be it through education or awareness – so much so, I named my new car after Michelle. And then there’s always Beyoncé – need I even explain?
This year I’m looking forward to having a bit of a break and doing some travelling. And then I’ve got some ideas for a new project involving animals… watch this space!
