Earlier this month, HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum called on Dubai residents to get fit in 30 days, under a new initiative known as the Dubai Fitness Challenge.

Have you been wondering how you can get involved? Well, we know of just the thing.

Golden Mile Galleria, the shopping and dining destination on Palm Jumeirah, is set to host its first ever Fitness Festival, with a jam-packed schedule of events from October 16 to November 11.

There will be a huge variety of free fitness activities on offer, including yoga, circuit training, HIIT sessions, kick-boxing, drum workout, Zumba, hip hop and Latin dance classes.

The Fitness Festival will also bring a very special guest to Dubai. Instagram celebrity Kayla Itsines will be conducting an intensity workout at 5pm on November 3.

The Australian personal trainer, who is considered one of the most influential fitness stars in the world, is famous for her Bikini Body Guide (BBG) 28-minute workouts.

There will also be plenty of opportunities to exercise with some of Dubai’s very own top trainers, including the team from Rebel Dxb, Nicole Olaivar from GoGo Flexx, and Dima Haddad from PoundFit.

It’s also a great chance to check out some of the fitness brands that are based in the mall – like boutique yoga studio Yoga La Vie, Fitness First, and kids-only gym Little Gladiators (you can read more about them here).

The free classes will take place every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday throughout the Fitness Festival. To register for a session, all you need to do is head to the Golden Mile Galleria Facebook page, call (04) 390 3333, or simply sign up using your Guava Pass account.

Oh, and just in case you needed a little extra dose of motivation, on the weekends of November 3 & 4 and 10 & 11, Golden Mile Galleria will be hosting the Ripe Market – so you can even enjoy some delicious healthy treats after your workout.

Are you ready to sweat? We’ll see you there…
