If doesn’t CHALLENGE you, it doesn’t CHANGE you.
Egypt fitness scene is being taken by storm by many out-of-the-box fitness and wellness events, one of the up and coming main players is ELFIT (Instagram @elfit_egypt), ELFIT is the FIRST and BEST in breed in fitness challenges in Egypt and the Middle East. You don’t have to be a hard-core athlete to participate, anyone can take part.
ELFIT started in Cairo in Feb 2013 with 2 full seasons in 2013 and 2014. The challenges test participants’ endurance, strength, power, agility amongst other factors through a series of qualifying events leading up to the finals’. This season’s finals will be held on the 23rd & 24th October 2015 in Egypt with a promise of a state-of-the-art event. The finals will be the biggest, most intense and roughest battle field where qualified participants from Lebanon, UAE, Palestine, Kuwait, Bahrain & Egypt will be competing against each other. The winners will be awarded a bounty cash with a total prizes of $ 30K+ for all categories.
We went last Saturday (Sep 5th, 2015) to the qualifications event held in Wadi Degla 6th of October. We watched in awe as truly impressive and highly motivated young men and women challenged themselves to the maximum. 20 males and 10 females (16-35 years old) have been qualified to the finals.
We had a blast on that fine, super sunny Saturday, watching, cheering and interviewing participants, judges and attending families. By far we were drawn to the cheerful spirit of the event and the trainers’ enthusiasm pushing their trainees to go places and give it all. Young 16 year old participants, screaming their lungs out to push their bodies even harder, watch our live coverage on Instagram and soon will be uploaded on YouTube. We were happy to meet Adam ElZoghby, ELFIT founder and director, Adam is a professional handball player who made sports his lifetime career. He is happily married and resides in Cairo with his wife and their super adorable 2.5 year old boy (Ali).
