Yasalam’s Get Driver Fit programme is back and better than ever to offer participants a fun way to get fit across the capital.

The annual fitness programme returns for its fifth year on Sunday, September 17 for seven weeks of free exercise classes and community health events.


A variety of class options will include HIIT training, yoga, boxing and more, to be held on Yas Island, Saadiyat Island, Umm al Emarat Park, Khalifa City and Yas Marina Circuit, as well as new locations such as Yas Beach, Gateway Park and Yas Links.

The class schedule also features popular activities like ladies-only Zumba and body toning, along with bi-weekly seminars for coaching to help participants reach their fitness goals.

New to this year is the online registration system, providing a convenient alternative to arriving early at the launch event to sign up.

After going through the fitness assessment, participants will have the chance to get a 3D body scan to calculate their health metrics and track their progress throughout the programme.

John Lickrish, CEO of FLASH Entertainment, said: “Get Driver Fit continues to grow and strengthen year-on-year, which is testament to Abu Dhabi community’s commitment to getting fit and active.

This year, in addition to accessibility across the Capital, we wanted to bring more of the action to the heart of Yasalam on Yas Island.

Rising to the challenge: Free exercise classes are offered across the capital for seven weeks.

“We are excited to witness the festival make waves with its innovative approach to community and leisure, as well as support the Abu Dhabi Government’s health and education agenda to improve physical literacy alongside our partner, Daman.”

Becoming your fittest self isn’t the only incentive to take part. Last year, two winners with the best overall score earned a trip to Goa, India.

This year, the top male and female participants with the best class attendance, overall physical transformation and performance time at the finale will also win an getaway grand prize.

The winners will be announced at the GDF Fitness Festival at the du Forum on November 10, which will have fitness classes, demonstrations, fitness talks, street sports, competitions and a family fun zone.
