Sponsored: From free fitness events for Dubai Fitness Challenge to Diwali fireworks…

There’s still a week to go in October and there’s so many events happening at The Pointe to celebrate.

We’re almost a week into the Dubai Fitness Challenge and if you’ve managed to stick to it – bravo. If you’re joining in late, not to worry, as there’s still loads of free fitness events happening at The Pointe for the event.

From October 23 to October 30, The Pointe is transforming into a fitness hub, offering an array of brilliant free workouts with influential trainers during the week-long campaign.

Got rhythm? Head down to one of the dance classes, Zumba or Afro Beats session and get in the groove while working up a sweat. Hit the water with an array of water sports like kayaking and SUP, or box out that pent up frustration with HIIT Boxing.

There’ll also be kids dance classes by Cheeky Monkeys and a pop-up kids gym by MyGym and PinPoint Fitness to keep the little ones active too.

And once you’ve worked up an appetite, make your way over to the healthy market, where you’ll be able to buy healthy bars, juices and coconut water. There’ll also be free giveaways from Life Pharmacy and free check-ups too.

Also this weekend, Dubai Fitness Challenge meets Diwali on Saturday October 26. After a full day of dance workouts, there’ll be a huge fireworks display for Diwali at 9pm. There will also be special discounts from selected retailers with up to 25 per cent off food and beverages.

Then kicking off on October 31 until November 2, The Pointe is adopting a ‘Dia De Los Muertos’ theme for Halloween weekend. Head down for celebration parades, dance classes, musical performances, kids Halloween workshops; face-painting; art installations and more.

There will also be a Mexican market on the waterfront promenade, selling tasty nachos and salsa, paintings and other arts and crafts items.
