Free fitness event returns to Abu Dhabi

Yas Fitness festival is taking place this November

Free fitness event returns to Abu Dhabi

The usual excuses for not doing enough exercise are that you don’t have enough time or it’s too expensive.

Well as the city’s largest free fitness event is coming to Yas Island, we’re afraid that these excuses are no longer valid.

Taking place on November 16 to 17, Yas Fitness Festival is a whole weekend of fitness classes, outdoor adventure activities and healthy lifestyle tips.

Running from 11am to 8pm each day, fitness fanatics can try Primal Gym classes including boxing and spinning, and also access an outdoor gym.

For younger guests there’s a kids zone to explore, plus face painting and arts and crafts.

Once you’ve totally exhausted yourself you can refuel at one of the food trucks and take a browse of the sports apparel and health food stalls.

There’s then the chance to show off your cooking skills in the popular Slim & Lite Healthy Cooking Challenge.

This lets you have a go at making quick, healthy, and nutritious recipes while expert nutritionists are on hand to answer any questions you might have.

To get your free access pass to the event you just need to register online at

Free. Nov 16-17, 11am-8pm. Gateway Park South, Yas Island,
