HMH – Hospitality Management Holding collectively scored a grand total of more than 12 million moves (12,131,606 moves) in the Dubai Fitness Challenge. All of the participating hotels did exceedingly well in their respective groups. With more than 8 million moves (8,162,083 moves) the Bahi Ajman Palace Hotel notched up the second position in corporate Category C among 5,445 companies registered for the challenge. Equally impressive was the performance of the Coral Beach Resort Sharjah that took the lead in Category D securing the second position with more than 3 million moves (3,639,658 moves). The corporate HMH team as well as the teams from the Coral Deira Dubai and the Coral Dubai Al Barsha Hotel have all performed exceptionally in their own groups.
Congratulating the teams, H.E. Sheikh Mohammed bin Faisal Al Qassimi, Chairman and CE of MANAFA LLC and Vice Chairman of HMH, said, “Organized under the kind patronage of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai Government and Dubai Sports Council, the Dubai Fitness Challenge was an outstanding community initiative aimed at making Dubai the most active and healthiest city in the world. It has been an incredible month for all of us and we are delighted to see the Group’s team respond so enthusiastically and perform so well.”
Each participating hotel under HMH had formed a team of 30 members who were given a monthly target to reach 27,000 minutes of combined exercise with a schedule of 30 minutes workout daily. Mr. Ferghal Purcell, COO of HMH, stated, “It’s been an amazing challenge that motivated us all to workout daily. Our greatest achievement from this challenge has been that even after the competition, all our staff are eager to continue their fitness regime. We had initially set our goal to a moderate 1 million moves across all the participating hotels in the UAE which was to be achieved over the course of 30 days. However, we have crossed the mark within a few days and reaching over 12 million moves on the 30th day. This is certainly an achievement that we will enjoy with our teams and we all at HMH take fitness seriously, are extremely competitive, and stop at nothing to become the best at all that we do.”
In addition to fitness activities such as workouts in the gym, walking, cycling, yoga, stretching, skipping, swimming, volleyball and basketball, the group went a step further to combine the Fitness Challenge with social responsibilities where the teams were engaged in tasks such as beach cleaning.
