Dubai Active Show lunged its way into Dubai World Trade Centre this weekend in a show of furious fitness classes, a series of wellness talks and a whole lot of flexing.

The event, which has been combined with Dubai Muscle Show and Dubai Active Industry, forms the biggest gatherings of industry experts in the region, where fitness fanatics and professionals can find inspiration, meet the stars of the industry or even just refresh their workout wardrobe.

The expo ran for three days, featuring an array of fitness classes and wellness talks covering everything from improving your posture to “running the world”. 

If you weren’t able to slip into your lycra though, fear not — all of the brands and fitness concepts showcasing their wares are based right here in the UAE, so you can get access them whenever the feeling strikes.

Here, we round up six of the best workouts, supplements and services showcased at the Dubai Active Show to get you feeling your best, from mindfulness in the metaverse to drinking more mushrooms, all year long.

Need a pick-me-up? A cup of mushrooms should do the trick, according to Dubai resident Chelsea Ashburn, founder of LQD DRT. The coffee replacement is jam-packed with powerful adaptogenic mushrooms and superfoods, designed to give you a natural “caffeine hit” and increased energy throughout the day. Available in a range of flavours, LQD DRT claims to boost the immune system, improve exercise performance and even fight anti-ageing. The mushrooms, which are imported from the US, are blended with superfoods including turmeric, spirulina and butterfly pea powder to form a variety of unique mixes which can be added to any liquid for a dose of mental clarity. lqddrt.com

Sick of scrolling through greasy burgers and brunch binges? It’s time to log out of Instagram and sign up to FitLynk, the brand-new social media platform dedicated to all things health and fitness. The site was launched in Dubai earlier this year with a mission to motivate users to monitor and enhance their fitness performance while making friends with like-minded individuals (with a similar penchant for gym selfies). Like Facebook, members can update their status and profile picture, as well as share a “fitness profile” that delves into everything from body composition and aerobic fitness to muscular strength and flexibility. Users can also share their daily activity, including their calorie intake, step count and activity levels. fitlynk.com
