With TrainYas, GoYas, iTrainSaturday, TrainDubai and TrainAlAin proving to be hugely popular, Daman have launched their free TrainZSC to mark their 10th year anniversary.

To be held at Zayed Sports City stadium between 18:00 to 21:00, on Thursday, Abu Dhabi residents will have the opportunity to engage in vertical training by climbing the stadium steps, while also having the chance to walk or run around the track.

And if you miss this week’s session, there will be lot more opportunities to join with the event being held on the last Thursday of every month.

It’s part of Daman’s initiative in promoting a healthy lifestyle and open to people of all abilities – whether you exercise regularly or not. Besides the activities, Daman are also offering free health checks, while there’s a children’s play area as well.

“Daman is 10 years old and to mark this momentous occasion we wanted to give something back to the community,” said Dr Michael Bitzer, CEO at Daman.

“TrainZSC is a remarkable and unprecedented opportunity for residents of Abu Dhabi to get to know a national icon, the National Stadium at Zayed Sports City, through a fitness initiative.

“For the first time in Abu Dhabi we will be able to go inside the stadium and create a step challenge, which is the first of its kind.”

You will get the chance to use the great facilities at Zayed Sports City stadium.
