The above poll is based on the page A6 report, ‘Take the Fitness Challenge one step at a time’, published in the Nation section of Gulf News on October 20.
His Highness Shaikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai Government and Dubai Sports Council, has launched the Dubai Fitness Challenge to motivate residents to take up physical activity and make Dubai the most active city in the world.
We asked Gulf News readers, how many hours they exercise in a week. A majority 39 per cent said they do not exercise at all and 16 per cent said they get 30 minutes of exercise.
The Dubai Fitness Challenge seeks to inspire Dubai’s residents to lead an active and healthy lifestyle by committing to a minimum of 30 minutes of daily activity for 30 days through a wide range of activities, sports or exercise.
