'We're still on': Emirati senior citizens keep moving after the Dubai Fitness Challenge

Dubai Health Authority has released a video showing the UAE's elder residents

The Dubai Fitness Challenge concluded on Saturday, November 16, but the UAE’s fitness season may be just getting started. With the weather getting cooler, there are a number of marathons, challenges and outdoor activities designed to help you commit to your health and fitness goals in the upcoming months.

And encouraging residents to stay on their toes is the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), which recently posted a video showing senior citizens out for an ocean swim.

“Our fitness challenge will continue with senior citizens after the conclusion of the #Dubai30x30 fitness challenge. Are you ready to continue with us?” the tweet reads.

The video features a number of Emirati senior citizens, who are in wheelchairs, partaking in water-related activities by the beach, with the help of professionals.

Some of the seniors are sporting T-shirts with the Dubai Fitness Challenge logo.

The DHA is a government partner of the 2019 Dubai Fitness Challenge, and it looks like this partnership is still going strong.
