Ideal for those looking to enhance their weekend experiences and for visitors hoping to indulge in the local fitness scene, Dubai Festival City presents the perfect place for the family and loved ones to revel in. Residents and visitors to Dubai are sure to find an activity they love at the multipurpose venue which will also serve as the perfect workout destination, ideal for a morning run or sunset yoga.

Coach Luke Gaffney said, “The positive effects of running or exercise in general are endless, both physically and mentally. Not only will exercise help the way you look and feel it improves your cardiovascular fitness giving you a better chance of living a longer healthier life but also when exercising your body produces chemicals called Endorphins otherwise known as the “happy hormone” sometimes referred to as the “runners high”. The body triggers these feel good hormones during exercise and let’s be honest who doesn’t want to live a longer happier life?  It’s an absolute no brainer! So lace up those shoes and make running part of your daily routine just like you would brush your teeth”.

Registration to the ‘My First Run’ session at Dubai Festival City is through the Nike app (Nike+ Run Club) and spaces are limited. So hurry and reserve a spot today!
