Emirati fitness guru Essa Al Ansari kickstarts talk series at Flow, Dubai
Emirati fitness legend Essa Al Ansari will kickstart a series of bi-monthly talks this Saturday at Flow, a healthy-eating and creative hub in Jumeirah Emirates Towers.
The Flow Talk Series will be hosted by the UAE’s influencers, enprepreneurs and respected tycoons, and will cover a range of topics from health and wellness to fitness, business and more.
Al Ansari, who has more than 48,500 followers on Instagram, will talk about his weight-loss transformation, which started just four years ago when he hit 130 kilograms. Now 70kg lighter, Essa’s mission is to inspire Emirati youths to adopt a healthy diet and physical activity.
“My number one goal is to inspire the youth, and especially the youth of the UAE,” says Al Ansari. “As Sheikh Mohammed said: ‘We are a young country, proud of its youth’. The vibe at Flow is all about getting in the ideal ‘state of mind’, and inspiring people to have the right, positive attitude. I am very excited to be part of that, and inspire as many listeners as possible, changing one life at a time.”
The second talk, which will be held on May 20 at 11am, will be hosted by Abeer Al Khaja, co-founder of Ana Gow Running Club. A CrossFit level-two coach, Al Khaja will discuss the best practices for Ramadan training, including balancing exercise with fasting, recommended food plans and top tips for keeping healthy. All 20-minute Flow Talks will be followed by a Q&A.
