Free fitness and wellbeing festival coming to Abu Dhabi

Having trouble sticking to your New Year’s fitness resolutions? Well this could be just the kick you need.

The Yas Fitness & Wellbeing Festival is returning to Abu Dhabi for two days packed with free fitness classes, interactive workshops, relaxation zones, live cooking sessions and more.

The two-day event will kick off on Friday March 1 at Gateway Park South from 9am until 7pm across both days to give your insides a good sprucing up.

The main stage fitness zone will host more than 25 classes to get your heart racing, including the likes of Zumba, HIIT and core classes for people of all ages and abilities.

There will also be an outdoor gym area with a tonne of workout facilities where you can test out new equipment and speak to qualified instructors to get hints and tips on how to effectively use the gym.

There will also be spinning classes, boxing sessions at the ring, and even a tyre flip workout session if you’re feeling brawny.

If you want to find some zen (or just stretch out after flipping those tyres), you can head to the yoga and pilates zone where there will be sessions covering a range of practices including hatha, ashtanga and vinyasa.

There will also be a wellness zone with interactive workshops, a relaxation zone where you’ll get a free massage and a kid’s zone to keep the sprogs occupied with arts and crafts and junior fitness classes.

Head to the website to register for your free pass for the event.

We’re digging out the lycra.
