Prepare to work out with Get Fit Abu Dhabi

New campaign launched in Abu Dhabi to improve public health

We’re lucky to live in Abu Dhabi, a city that promotes an active lifestyle and offers numerous free fitness events to get us moving.

Helping to offer even more opportunities for people to get more active, The Department of Community Development has launched the Get Fit, Abu Dhabi campaign.

As part of the campaign, until November 30, malls across the city will be hosting healthy activities, promotions and recreational programmes to encourage you to be more active in your day-to-day life.

“Department of Community Development aims to improve the quality of life for the residents of Abu Dhabi and create a cohesive and an inclusive societal climate,” said the Department of Community Development’s HE Dr. Mugheer Khamis Al Khaili.

“With the support of our partners, we always come up with initiatives that help us achieve our vision and with the launch of Get Fit Abu Dhabi, we start a new leaf in our community development.

“This health initiative is unlike any other being organized within this Nation, as we believe that health should not be a one-time idea but a permanent lifestyle learning.”

Later this year the Department of Community Development will announce more details on fitness campaigns to help people from all age groups to get more active and engage all members of the community including People of Determination.

There are also training nights, fitness challenges and sports festivals, on offer across the city, so there’s no excuse in Abu Dhabi to stay on the couch.
