Do your friends hate how you nag them about their unhealthy eating habits? Make sure to bring them to this fun fitness event!
Food is awesome, but staying fit to balance all that indulging is important too. Get your fitness fix at Kite Beach and crunch away the carbs at a challenging bootcamp session with top trainers, or stretch it out by the sea at a relaxing yoga class. Fitness experts will be available to offer health advice, and beachgoers can enjoy music from the band and DJ. Classes will take place on all weekends during the Dubai Food Festival.
