Fitness is not always about keeping your health intact, weight loss or weight gain, or even keeping those calories in check. Sometimes, it’s about the thrill you get out of an exciting workout routine or session.

Qatar has hosted a number of sporting events in the recent past and will host the greatest sporting event of all time this 2022. This country celebrates Qatar National Sports Day on the second Tuesday of February every year and is thoroughly engaged in building up the sporting atmosphere and culture across the country.

The people of Qatar as well are indulged in a very healthy life routine where exercising or working out always makes it to their list. As of recent, many people have chosen to travel via the Doha Metro and have opted to rent out scooters and bicycles wherever possible. Thus, making their travel very healthy and fit.

Craving some adrenaline rush during a zonked out weekend? Drained out or not, Qatar has some really amazing outdoor spaces where you and your friends can head over to for a fun workout session.

Here are some of the places you can check off your list:

Apart from the ordinary gyms that you see throughout town, a Weill-Cornell Medicine Qatar initiative named "Sahtak-Awalan” (Your health first) was implemented earlier this year that  consists of installing solar-powered fitness structures. They are made from upscaling shipping containers. These fitness installations are currently stationed at Al Rayyan Park and Old Airport Park.  The sustainable containers also display large screens that show tailor-made free fitness classes instructed by renowned fitness instructors in the community.

Fitness enthusiasts all over town can and across all ages can benefit from this fabulous idea for free. This initiative is keen on instilling a healthy lifestyle among the people of Qatar.

The classes will be aired on the big screen for everyone to follow and can be done by any fitness level. The duration lasts between 15–20 minutes and the given instructions are in Arabic, Urdu, and English.
