Want two tickets to the gun show? Step right this way...
What’s On details the Dubai Fitness and Performance Classic at Dubai World Trade Centre, the first professional body building competition in Middle East.
If there’s one thing we learned from Anchorman’s Ron Burgundy, it’s the importance of bagging tickets to the gun show. And if the best body builders in the world flexing their guns, pecs, abs and more is your bag, you’ll want to follow his advice this October with the inaugural Dubai Fitness and Performance Classic coming to town.
The event marks the first ever professional body building competition in the Middle East, and will feature six muscle-rippling contests over four days. Some of the biggest names (and physiques) in the business are set to appear including Dexter Jackson, Shawn Roden and Dennis Wolf, all fresh from their participation at September’s iconic Mr Olympia contest in Las Vegas.
These Schwarzenegger-esque superstars will be among the professionals competing in the Dubai FPC IFBB Pro Open body building contest on the opening day to see who will be crowned the buffest of them all. On the second day, the arena will welcome the best amateur body builders in the Middle East, who will compete in three weight categories (75kg, 85kg, and 85+kg) with a special guest appearance by UAE professional body builder Essa Obaid.
The final two days of Dubai FPC will see open contests in men’s physique and women’s physique, as well as men and women’s fitness challenges. Plus, if all these competitions leaves you inspired to work out or bulk up, there are plenty of experts on hand to chat to while you browse the many stands dedicated to fitness, weight loss and of course, body building.
