Dubai’s first ever dedicated fitness, muscle and physique show is almost here, and we can’t wait to see it.
The show takes place at the Dubai International Marine Club on 20-21 October and will see more than 20 local and global fitness superstars, and over 400 competitors, take part in the event. It’s a chance for fitness enthusiasts to meet their heroes, while also watching some of the Middle East’s and the world’s best amateur athletes in Martial Arts, Bodybuilding, Strong Man, Calisthenics and CrossFit compete.
Top drawcards include body building icon and eight times Mr Olympia winner Ronnie Coleman and the equally talented Jay Cutler, a four-time winner of the Mr Olympia title. It’s the first time both men have appeared together in the Middle East, who both say they’re looking forward to meeting their UAE fans.
There are in excess of 350 athletes registered for the IFBB Amateur Championship, a body-building competition that encompasses both classic- and less extreme-ends of the body-building spectrum. Dubai-based Brazilian superstar Andreia Brazier, a four-time World Beauty Fitness and Fashion (WBFF) champion will be there to wow her fans after announcing plans to step down from major competitions in August. Other athletes on the line-up include social media megastar Lazar Angelov, four-time Musclemania Champion Ulisses Jr, fitness icons Sergi Constance, Jaco De Bruyn and Zsuzsanna Toldi – and Ras Al Khaimah-based fitness model Jelena Rees.
