I’m so happy to announce that I have joined the SSS Fitness Festival team as an official Ambassador for the upcoming fitness-filled weekend. This years festival will be hosted at Skydive Dubai on 4th & 5th of November. I think that skydive offers the perfect venue – there’ll be plenty of grassy areas to wander, we’ll be surrounded by the beautiful Dubai waters and have the views of the Palm, the Marina and downtown Dubai off in the distance. It’s one of my favourite places to go when I visit, and I can’t wait to be spending my weekend there. I might even finally get to Skydive as well! (Matt thinks I’m crazy and told me he’ll film from the ground lol)
Me and Matt went along to the Fitness Festival last year (read that post here) and thoroughly enjoyed our time there! We managed to have wander around the different brands that were showcasing, tried some products that are on the market here in the UAE and got involved in some fun fitness challenges. We also watched an interview and live Q&A session with the 2014 World CrossFit Games Champion, Camille LeBlanc-Bazinet. It was super-fun, and Matt put together little video of it all:
This years Sun & Sand Sports Fitness Festival promises to be bigger and better, with fun challenges, exciting competitions, sporting celebrities, elite athletes and healthy cooking shows among plenty of other things!
I’m really looking forward to the Demo Area, where you can try new exercise classes and take a look at the latest fitness technology, apparel and equipment. I remember trying a CRYO facial at last years Fitness Festival, and then I ended up doing a review of their full body treatments back here in Abu Dhabi. The main stage is where you’ll find demonstrations, live interviews and Q&A’s, and all of the main entertainment for the Fitness Festival. The music played around the whole festival last year was awesome, so I hope they’ve got something good planned for this year too!
If you fancy it, there’ll be a Los Angeles style Muscle Beach as well! The open-air gym will offer instruction and advice from professional trainers, and you’ll be able to take part in various challenges throughout the 2-day event.
One of the most exciting things (and new for this years event) is the Healthy Living Show. The one stop shop for everything that you need to know for healthy living in the UAE. The 4 main sectors of this show are Beauty & Anti-Aging, Nutrition & Supplements, Health and Organic & Natural Products. There’ll be a healthy cooking theatre, healthy cooking challenges AND the one and only Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) is on board for inspirational live talks and cooking demonstrations. I use his recipes quite literally ALL OF THE TIME at home, so I am super excited about this (and secretly hoping I get to meet him)!!
I hope I’ll see you there!!
