In this podcast, I speak to (my) personal trainer Anthony Lee from Activ8 Lifestyle & Fitness in Dubai. It is his first ever podcast interview and I think he has done a great job! So Anthony, how can we avoid that dreaded “Dubai (or Doha) stone”???

As expat teachers in the Gulf/ Middle East, many social events revolve around food, restaurants, and brunches, especially in the summer when it’s too hot to go outside. Add to that all those numerous food delivery apps and we may end up with that dreaded “Dubai stone,” also known as “Doha stone” in Qatar! In this interview, Anthony offers his top tips to expat teachers (especially myself!) to motivate us to stay healthy and fit. I’ve had trainers in the past but Anthony is the best one I’ve ever had and I’d highly recommend him. He knows how much to push you, he is friendly yet firm, and he checks in regularly to make sure you are consistently exercising on the days off!
