Those looking for a few days of fun and exercise can celebrate the UAE National Day with Abu Dhabi Alive, a new fitness and lifestyle event which aims to educate and inspire people to become fitter, healthier and stronger.

Whether you are looking to start off a new, healthy lifestyle, or looking to improve your fitness, Abu Dhabi Alive promises to support you in achieving your goals through free consultations, fun activities and giveaways.

Abu Dhabi Alive takes place at Zayed Sports City (ZSC) in the capital from today until Saturday. Principal sponsor Activelife by Daman will be offering free body composition assessments, live Zumba classes, free gifts for visitors when they play the ‘wheel of health’ game as well as live street dancing shows.

Abu Dhabi Sports Council will also be on hand throughout the exhibition promoting their vision of using the culture of sport professionalism, as well as systematic performance methods, to create a sport-proactive environment.

Gold’s Gym UAE is the latest exhibitor to confirm their participation with live fitness classes and giving away free memberships to two lucky visitors. Abu Dhabi Alive will also feature Adventure HQ’s climbing wall – a simulated rock formation affixed with numerous hand and foot holds that provides mental and physical tests to build strength, endurance, and self-confidence.

The UAE’s first and only floatation centre will be raising awareness about the benefits of floatation for the body and mind.

Dr. Asma Inamdar, specialist in Ayurvedic and Holistic Medicine at Point Zero Floatation, said: “Our mission is to provide residents of Abu Dhabi with an alternative medical facility, offering natural, healthy practices for a better lifestyle.

"Our three mediums of Floatation Therapy, Ayurveda and Body Works intertwine together to help analyse the body as a whole.”

Visitors who book a floatation treatment during Abu Dhabi Alive will be eligible for a 10 per cent discount. Lotus Holistic Alternative Medical Centre will also be on site promoting their holistic concepts which aim to help prevent stress and disease caused by life in the fast lane.

Visitors can learn how traditional Chinese medicine, Reiki and homeopathy can improve their quality of life. The Original Fitness Co will have various fitness challenges on offer for visitors to find out how fit they actually are.

Day one will feature the feared ‘bleep test’, day two will test the obstacle course, day three will see visitors ‘planking’ to work out their core and day four will include a two-minute burpee test.

Other exhibitors signed up include diet centre Slim’n Lite, who will be offering live cooking demonstrations, Natural Care from Jordan which will be giving out free medical and cosmetic product samples, Palmer’s Cocoa Butter, one of the world’s leading skin care brands, RSU Healthcare which will provide free eye screening tests, and UNICEF, which will offer advice specifically for children.
