Free entry to women's healthcare expo
Dubai, March 7, 2009
Visitors to the upcoming Women’s Healthcare exhibition are being encouraged to turn up in their running shoes and gym clothes to gain free entry to the Middle East’s most comprehensive event dedicated to the wellbeing of women.
Taking place from April 8 to 11 at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre and running alongside The Bride Show Dubai, Women’s Healthcare boasts a diverse line-up of free classes and workout sessions, which means getting fit has never been so much fun.
New to the show this year will be a dedicated area for visitors to get active using the popular Nintendo Wii Fit and Nintendo Wii Sports games.
Friends and family can take part in aerobics classes, re-enact their own version of the Dubai Tennis Championships with a rally on the court, sharpen up their golf skills or just throw some bowling balls down the alley.
Musically-minded visitors can get rhythm, get fit, and have fun in drum circle sessions held at Women’s Healthcare.
Exercising the arms and core muscles, drumming is a great way to relieve tension and let loose while being active.
Drumming has been known to bring out a person’s creativity, allowing them to become more spontaneous and intuitive as well as boosting the immune system and raising endorphin levels.
Dancing is going to be a main feature this year, with free salsa classes being offered by the Familia De La Salsa Group who will teach skilful moves to promote fitness.
Furthermore, Latino cardio and African dance classes will be offered daily by The Exhale Studio, the women only exercise facility based in Jumeirah Beach Residence.
“We know that women in the UAE take an active interest in their physical fitness, but with the daily demands of family and career, some find little time to head to the gym," said Sietske Meerloo, marketing manager of Women's Healthcare, organised by IIR Middle East.
"The fitness classes at Women’s Healthcare are designed to expose women to alternative workouts, so they can discover various ways to have fun and get fit that don’t require huge time commitments or distance to travel."
"Dubai is full of different ways to get active and we want to explore as many of those opportunities as possible," he noted.
The event will also offer free mammogram tests from Tawam Hospital, health checks, and blood sampling tests.
Visitors can donate blood to the Sharjah Blood Bank as well as seek advice on alternative medicine and receive healthy food product giveaways.
Women who have a general interest in improving their overall health and lifestyle will find the event invaluable.
Visitors can also enter a free draw to win an adventure holiday to Cyprus courtesy of Mountain High, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
