So many Ramadan articles in the fitness arena focus on how to work out while fasting. But the reality for many people is that that it becomes harder and harder to get to those workouts as the Holy Month progresses.

But suddenly that dream is within the 26-year-old Emirati’s grasp after winning the inaugural Gulfood Youth X competition at Dubai World Trade Centre.

Whether it’s the guilt of having missed a workout session or dragging yourself out of bed for an early morning jog even if you aren’t at all up for it, the concept that exercise can be an addiction is becoming more of a concern among fitness experts and health specialists.

The Ukraine crisis has consumed us in a sudden and overwhelming information overload. After weeks of warnings about a potential war in Ukraine preceded by years of increasing antagonism, the Russian military marched into the country and swiftly altered geopolitics for decades to come. Within minutes of the invasion, the global news cycle kicked into high-octane war coverage and it hasn’t stopped since. While it is vital that the war and suffering of the Ukrainian people is reported as transparently as possible,...

The latest phones, laptops and iPads have become must-have accessories that are more important to a young family than a pet. But this exposure to all that info has seen an increase in digital addiction. In fact, it’s becoming so prevalent, that it’s...

A year ago, it was fairly easy to count all the padel courts in the UAE. These days, it’s virtually impossible to keep up with them all.    New ones are popping up across Abu Dhabi, Dubai and into the northern emirates at an incredible rate, including at hotels, sports centers and purpose-built new padel clubs.  A kind of cross between tennis and squash that is easier to play (and arguably more fun), many in the...
