Yas exercise night for ladies in Abu Dhabi is now free

Daman's Activelife wellness programme has stepped forward to sponsor ladies' night at Yas Marina Circuit.

ABU DHABI // The entrance fee for the weekly ladies' exercise night at Yas Marina Circuit has been dropped after Daman's Activelife stepped forward to act as sponsors.

From tonight, it will cost nothing to walk, run or cycling the Formula One track on GoYas evenings and it will cost only Dh50 to take part in a Yoga, Zumba, Boot Camp, Pilates or Box Fit class.

Since the night for women began in April, more than 3,000 have visited the circuit to workout on a Wednesday evening. More than 85 per cent of the women were Emirati, according to the GoYas organisers.

The evenings will be renamed GoYas by Activelife, and will feature nutrition and health testing as well as a staffed children's playground for children under 12

"This partnership will be a positive example for the Abu Dhabi community and will encourage women to make exercises and activities a regular part of their weekly routine," said Dr Sven Rohte, Daman's chief commercial officer.

Sana Al Hammadi of Yas Marina Circuit added: "We are proud of the role GoYas has played in fostering a culture of health and fitness among women in Abu Dhabi."
