Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts Unveils Schedule of Activities to Help Guests #MoveThisRamadan

Dubai, UAE, 1 May, 2019: This May, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts will once again be bringing guests and local communities together to walk, jog and stretch their way to a happy and healthy Ramadan. First launched in 2017, the #MoveThisRamadan campaign offers light and enjoyable exercise opportunities throughout the holy month, which are designed to encourage participation in gentle physical activity with family and friends.

Now in its third edition, #MoveThisRamadan promises an engaging range of group exercise activities designed to help those who are fasting to feel energised and maintain their fitness levels. Created to reflect the holy month’s spirit of sharing and togetherness, #MoveThisRamadan presents exercise as a natural component of a healthy and balanced Ramadan routine.

Egyptian personal trainer Manal Rostom, a Nike ambassador and the first hijabi Arab woman to appear in a commercial for the iconic sportswear brand, has been chosen as the #MoveThisRamadan ambassador. The inspirational athlete has scaled some of the world’s highest mountains and completed 12 marathons, four of which are World Marathon Majors, and will be leading a special exercise session at Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach.

This year, guests can benefit from #MoveThisRamadan activities at a total of 16 Four Seasons addresses across the Middle East, North Africa and Asia. From sunset jogging sessions around the stylish promenade at Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi at Al Maryah Island, to outdoor yoga classes with incredible views of the Caspian Sea at Four Seasons Hotel Baku, the choice of activities has been carefully planned to make use of the stunning surroundings found in each destination. Each #MoveThisRamadan session will be led by a resident Four Seasons fitness expert, and takes into consideration local climates and appropriate activity levels.

Ever since Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts opened its first property in 1961, the company has strived to deliver unparalleled satisfaction by anticipating the needs of its guests. This extends to the provision of wellness facilities; Four Seasons was among the first hospitality companies to integrate fitness centres and Spas into its properties. The company was also a pioneer in taking a holistic approach to wellness with the introduction of healthy dishes on its menus. This journey continues next month with the return of #MoveThisRamadan.

Full details on events at participating hotels can be found below. Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts wishes everyone a happy and healthy Ramadan.
