Super-trainer Joe Wicks leads region's biggest HIIT workout session


Thousands of fitness enthusiasts joined Instagram star Joe Wicks for the region’s largest ever High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).

In a spectacle of true determination, participants were seen taking part in the intense 30-minute workout session at Skydive Dubai, as part of Dubai Fitness Challenge.

Radio personality Kris Fade kicked off the event early Saturday, entertaining the crowds as they geared up for the session.

Joe Wicks then surprised the crowd by skydiving into the venue before hitting the stage for the 30-minute session. 

"I’m ecstatic about leading the city of Dubai in the largest ever HIIT session in the region! I couldn’t have asked for a better and more dedicated crowd to join me in such a high-energy event," he told the crowd.

"Dubai Fitness Challenge is a fantastic initiative to energise the entire city to get active, and it has been an honour to be part of this year’s edition."
