Exercise With Friends and Family This Ramadan

It’s pretty evident that exercise is one of the key components when it comes to healthy living, and we know that maintaining a healthy fitness level is really important, particularly in today’s world of digital screens and long hours at the office. As our bodies detoxify during the month of Ramadan, it’s much easier to shed a few extra pounds by integrating basic exercise patterns into our routines – and seeing as it’s a time for friends and family, why not get them involved too!

It’s pretty easy to find a gym to work out in as there are plenty of gyms and classes to try out in Dubai, but the gym isn’t the only place you can go for a workout. You could head out for a brisk walk with your family at the park, or along the beach, or just keep it local and stick to your neighbourhood. It’s good to keep moving, get the blood pumping and to enjoy your daily dose of exercise.

Or you could team up with a fitness buddy and join a run club for something a little more social, and together – whether it’s just you and your partner, or a group of friends and family, you can achieve mutual fitness goals. Get in the right mindset and motivate each other through your training and work towards setting new Ramadan fitness goals that you can also carry on after Eid.

Exercising during Ramadan can be tough, so always listen to your body, and either work out just before you break your fast at Iftar, or wait until you have eaten and digested your healthy meal a little later. Saving workouts for the hours between Iftar and Suhoor is a good idea because the sun has gone down and you can keep hydrating with a regular water intake.

Ramadan is a month of fasting and worship, and when you combine a few fitness regimes with it you get both a spiritual and a physical lift. So grab a partner, or members of your family, and head out for some fun Ramadan exercise routines together.
