It’s the last leg of 2020 and while we started off with some swift home workout videos to keep the adrenaline pumping, the truth is the fizz has fizzled, and here we are, in our pyjamas fully transformed into couch potatoes.

So, now that this year is ending, how do we get back to our old healthy selves? Well, Dubai seems to have found the perfect way to keep us active and fit with Dubai Run 2020.

That’s right, the biggest city-wide fun run is back and so is the Dubai Fitness Challenge with a much needed 2020 twist!

For everyone living under a rock, the Dubai Fitness Challenge was started in 2017 by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council for the Dubai Government. Started as an initiative to spread awareness on the benefits of an active lifestyle, it challenges everyone in Dubai to complete 30 minutes of activity each day for 30 days!

Dubai Fitness Challenge

The 2020 edition of Dubai Fitness Challenge comes with a few major changes. Keeping in line with the guidelines and safety norms, the Dubai Run took place on November 27th and saw many visitors and residents step out in their trainers for a run-athon!
This year instead of having a pre-decided course, the participants had to run through their own neighbourhood, park or wherever they felt comfortable. Runners could decide what time and what distance to begin, making it super easy to take part in.
Now, even though the Dubai Run event is over, the Dubai Fitness Challenge is still going strong. So, if you are motivated to keep your fitness journey going and getting that 30 mins of workout in every day, then there is a month-long calendar of free workouts, exciting fitness events and wellness-centric entertainment planned to keep you moving.

Lopez and Affleck wed in Las Vegas – 17 years on

Published

on

Hollywood stars Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have got married in Las Vegas, Lopez has confirmed.

“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient,” she wrote on her website.

The nuptials come 17 years after they called off their first engagement.

News of the couple getting back together last year sent fans into a spin, as they publicly displayed their rekindled love on social media.

The Clark County Clerk’s Office in Nevada – where Las Vegas is located – shows on its record system that Jennifer Lopez will change her name to Jennifer Affleck.

Writing on her OntheJLo website, she said the couple had flown to Las Vegas on Saturday and queued for a marriage licence alongside four other couples.

“They were right when they said, ‘all you need is love’,” she wrote.

“We are so grateful to have that in abundance, a new wonderful family of five amazing children and a life that we have never had more reason to look forward to.”

The pair met on the set of the movie Gigli in 2002, and got engaged in 2003, but broke it off the following year, blaming “excessive media attention”.

However since getting back together, they have regularly posted photos and videos online of romantic holidays and moments with their families – prompting fans to nickname the couple Bennifer.

During their time apart, Lopez was engaged several times and also married to singer Marc Anthony from 2004 to 2014. They have two children together. This will be her fourth marriage.

Meanwhile Affleck was married to actor Jennifer Garner from 2005 to 2018, and they have three children together.
