The Body Coach Joe Wicks is looking to attract more than 3,800 people at Skydive Dubai for world record HIIT session
Dubai residents are being invited to stretch off and set another Guinness World Record for the emirate as ‘The Body Coach’ Joe Wicks attempts to host the world’s largest high-intensity interval training (HIIT) class on October 26.
The social media fitness star and best-selling author will lead the intense cardio session at Skydive Dubai as part of the Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC).
The free session, presented by DEWA, will feature a 30-minute class with a series of short and intense periods of anaerobic exercises, followed by short recovery breaks.
Wicks currently holds the record title himself with a HIIT class of 3,804 participants he led in London in 2017 – and has now called upon the city of Dubai to be ‘In It, Together’ to beat that record.
The session will be moderate in intensity, with a basic level of fitness required to participate.
In order to break the Guinness World Record, all participants must complete the full 30-minute workout without stopping.
Participation in HIIT30x30 is free for people aged 18 years and above with more details and registration available at Platinumlist.net.
The Dubai Fitness Challenge runs from October 18 to November 16 and calls on residents to commit to at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day for 30 days.
