Shaikh Hamdan said Dubai aims to set an example for cities around the world in encouraging citizens to give high importance to physical activity and sports, reports Gulf News.

“We are very keen to spread a culture of fitness since we strongly believe that making physical activity and sports a part of their daily routines will help people significantly improve the quality of their lives,” he said.

Taking place from October 20 - November 18, The Dubai Fitness Challenge will see a month of citywide events and activations, including more than 1,500 free workout classes at 88 partner fitness and sports facilities, 75 pop-up fitness locations for easy and convenient workouts, 16 partner sporting events, five weekend family fun carnivals and a whole range of sports and fitness activities.
