A Very Fit Weekend

Over the weekend, we took part in the SSS Fitness Festival 2016.

Set in the activity hub that is Skydive Dubai, we spent Friday and Saturday surrounded by fitness and wellness professionals, enthusiasts and novices.

We launched SwitchDXB, building our community by getting people to share their advice on how to Live Better. Children & Adults alike shared their thoughts on our graffiti wall and they were tagged on Instagram.

One by one, visitors to the SwitchDXB gave their advice and shared it with both passers-by and our social media community. 

What we quickly established is that the fitness and wellness community are extremely friendly, helpful and willing to help others. It is on this basis that SwitchDXB was born.

But it wasn't just the adults that were sharing their best tips - the children got involved too, by drawing their exercises on the board and giving demonstrations to our resident PT Phill Robson.

By the end of just the first day, we were running out of space on the graffiti wall, so visitors had to seek the remaining white space to share their tips. 

Throughout the weekend, we had a number of live demonstrations on the SwitchDXB stand, showcasing how you can Switch On or Switch Off. From metabolic body analysis, to yoga, to HIIT workouts and nutrition - we were visited by a number of experts, all of whom shared their tips and best practices.

The weekend flew by, with the SwitchDXB team having met hundreds, if not thousands, of wonderful people who all share our passion in finding ways to live better. We look forward to returning next year to see how others have progressed and to share our own.
