7 WEEKS OF FREE FITNESS FUN | 17th September – 10th November

It’s time to get involved! Try something different, be active, and make new friends – all for free!


The healthy lifestyle support doesn’t stop there, participants who register at launch event will get the best start to their fitness journey with the first-ever GDF body scan. Performed after registration is completed, the scan will provide GDF participants with a full 3D body model and measurements to calculate their fitness and health metrics to keep them on track throughout the programme and make strides in their fitness journey.


In addition, bi-weekly seminars focused on healthy lifestyle, nutrition and motivation will be available for registered GDF participants. They are a brilliant way to keep up to date with fitness news, on track, and in touch with your fitness pals and goals after the finale in November.

What’s the main prize

After weeks of healthy moves and energy, the top male and female performances from the GDF registered participants will each be given a well-deserved rest with an exotic three nights getaway courtesy of Nirvana Travel & Tourism.
