Dubai Fitness Challenge is here and if you’re yet to discover that the next few weeks have some utter bargains available, then feast your eyes on these magnificent offers.
This year’s challenge runs through until Saturday November 24, and the whole idea is to spend 30 minutes per day exercising, whether that’s walking, running, cycling, yoga…ing, or whatever you fancy.
To help make that happen, the Dubai Fitness Challenge app offers you a whole bunch of free classes and more. And who doesn’t love free stuff?
In fact there are more than 4,000 different classes and events that you can access – but it’s not just about free events, there are also loads of promotions and offers on specific gyms and even healthy takeaway and sports gear.
Here’s our pick of the best free (or discounted) deals in Dubai during the fitness challenge.
