CrossFit has been gaining a lot of attention over the years in Dubai and the surrounding region. With CrossFit events taking place throughout the year, there’s never a dull moment for CrossFit lovers.
Some of these events are held for fun while others are competitions between CrossFit enthusiasts.
CrossFit Al Ain is one of the largest and most active Crossfit community in the world. In fact, it has grown to become the largest Crossfit community in the Middle East.
The group has more than 3,000 members who take part in various activities throughout the year.
The Group was created by Mark Kovacs in 2012. Mark is an avid CrossFitter and has participated in many CrossFit events including the CrossFit Games held in Aromas, California every year.
Since its inception, the group has grown more than 10 times its size. It now has more than 3,000 active members. The group holds 1 to 2 events every day. These include group workouts, community barbeques and CrossFit seminars.
Most of the events are held at Crossfit Al Ain which lies along the M2 Motorway in the UAE. It is one of the most reputed and well-known Crossfit gyms in Dubai.
It has grown to become a beacon of fitness in the region.
These events attract people of all skill levels and age. There are people who have just started their fitness journey and there are elite Crossfit athletes as well.
The events are a way for people to learn more about fitness, develop friendships and most importantly stay healthy.
There are many Crossfit events in Dubai but the “Dubai Crossfit Championship” is by far the most competitive one. This year’s competition will take place on 23 June 2017 at The Dubai Mall.
The Dubai Crossfit Championship is an annual competition that attracts some of the best athletes in the world. It is a three-day event that features both team and individual events.
The 2017 edition will have a prize pool of 300,000 AED.
The competition is split into five divisions:
Elite: Winners of the Men’s and Women’s division at the 2015 Dubai Crossfit Championship
Open: Any athlete who does not fall under the category of “Elite”
Masters: Athletes above the age of 35
Novice: Athletes who have been competing for less than 3 years
Teens: Male and female athletes between the ages of 14 to 18.
The Dubai Crossfit Championship is considered one of the most important events in the CrossFit calendar. Not only does it feature some of the best athletes in the world but it also determines the qualifiers for the even more competitive “CrossFit Games” held in the United States.
The winner of the competition will receive free airfare and accommodation to the US to take part in the “Crossfit Games.”
In the 2015 Dubai Crossfit Championship, Brazilian athlete Fernando Pacheco bested some of the world’s best athletes to become the champion. He also went on to participate in the “Crossfit Games” held in the United States.
The second and third place winners in the competition were also considered top competitors in their own right. Michele Letendre from Canada took the second place and became the first ever Canadian athlete to win an event in the “Crossfit Games.” Australian athlete David McSecond finished third.
He is one of Australia’s most successful Crossfit athletes and has represented his country in more than 40 international competitions. He is also one of the country’s most successful athletes having won 10 Australian National titles and having represented Australia at the prestigious “Crossfit Games”.
The competition has grown tremendously since it was first held in the UAE in 2015. The event will see more than 200 participants including top athletes from around the globe as well as local Dubai residents.
The competition will be a 3-day event and will include a number of team and individual events.
The most anticipated event is the “Overhead squat” which requires competitors to squat a barbell that is over their heads. The heaviest weight lifted determines the winner of this event.
Other events include the “Seated row”, “Snatch”, and the “Deadlift”. Each event tests the strength of each athlete and helps determine who the strongest man or woman is.
The event will feature a number of popular Dubai Crossfit athletes as well as some international Crossfit stars. Last year’s winner, Brazilian athlete Fernando Pacheco will be returning to defend his title.
Other stars such as David Mcsecond (3rd place – 2015) and Elisabeth Akinwale (2nd place – 2014) will also be in attendance.
The event also features a number of team and individual events. The “Snatch ladder” involves teams of 6 members.
At the start of an interval, each athlete completes a snatch set at an increasing weight. The team that completes the Snatch ladder the fastest wins.
While the “Overhead squat relay” features a relay race involving teams of 6 where the first person completes an Overhead squat with a given weight, then passes it on to the 2nd athlete who then does the same until the team has used all 6 of its members and completed 100 over head squats in total. This event helps to test both mental and physical strength as well as teamwork.
The Dubai Crossfit Championship is a yearly competition that attracts some of the world’s best athletes. If you have some free time and want to take in a sporting event, watching the best of the best compete against each other in a number of different competitions, then buy yourself a ticket and head on over to the Burj Al Arab.
Although Crossfit can be dangerous and has resulted in a number of serious injuries, watching people compete is a surprisingly entertaining activity. Many of such competitions are open to the public so that anyone can buy a ticket and attend.

As you can see from this list, the games involve a lot of lifting heavy objects such as weights and tires, as well as more traditional sports activities such as running and jumping.
If you are like me and not a natural athlete, you might feel intimidated by this list. However, you can still go to the games and enjoy watching all the fit people in action.
I guarantee that you will learn a few new things about exercise and your body. Or have an interesting story to tell your grandchildren.
Regardless of the reason, I hope you will consider attending your local Crossfit games.
I have to admit that as a man who has played video games since the days of the Atari, I was not always a big fan of eSports. For those who are not familiar with the term, eSports are video game competitions between players of first person shooters such as Call of Duty or League of Legends , or real time strategy games such as Starcraft .
Although there are eSports fans all over the world, to many in the United States, eSports remain something of a niche activity. However, that is beginning to change.
Last week when I was in class, I happened to read an article in the school newspaper about the popularity of eSports. While it is true that many people at my school play video games, they are not particularly famous for their skill in playing such games.
I happen to know a few guys on the swim team who are considered to be really good at playing FPS games such as Call of Duty . When I asked them about the article, they had never heard of any eSports.
This is sad because these guys are not just good at playing first person shooters; they are also good at playing a lot of other sports, have good grades, and are in all kinds of clubs.
However, the reason eSports are not popular at my school is because not everyone can be good at them. In fact, only a small number of people can be good at them.
This is one of the aspects of eSports that prevent it from becoming too popular in the United States. Unlike sports such as soccer or football where pretty much anyone can have a chance to be good at it, not everyone is going to have a natural talent for playing Starcraft or Call of Duty .
