It didn't quite make it as a world record, but it was definitely the biggest training session in the region.
Joe Wicks aka The Body Coach came to Dubai on Saturday to coach thousands of people in a HIIT session at SkyDive Dubai.
While the attendance didn't get it over the line to be an official world record, it was still hugely impressive, with thousands coming out to work up a sweat on a Saturday morning as part of the Dubai Fitness Challenge 2019.
Wicks said: “I’m ecstatic about leading the city of Dubai in the largest ever HIIT session in the region! I couldn’t have asked for a better and more dedicated crowd to join me in such a high-energy event. Dubai Fitness Challenge is a fantastic initiative to energise the entire city to get active, and it has been an honour to be part of this year’s edition.”
The Dubai Fitness Challenge will continue until November 16, encouraging residents to participate in 30 minutes of exercise every day for 30 days.
