Multiple Mr. Olympia winner Jay Cutler and Kai Greene in Dubai Muscle Show

Dubai Muscle Show

Two of the biggest names on the international professional bodybuilder circuit – Jay Cutler and Kai Greene – joined forces for a muscle-fuelled workout overlooking Dubai’s newest entertainment destination, Bluewaters by Meraas, and its iconic landmark, Ain Dubai.

Ahead of their highly-anticipated appearances at this weekend’s Dubai Muscle Show, which runs Friday 7 and Saturday 8 December at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) and is organized in collaboration with Dubai Sports Council, the stacked duo took to the beach at Warehouse Gym to pump iron and catch some rays.

Cutler and Greene join an all-star cast for this weekend’s physique and fitness events, where tens of thousands of fitness fans from across the Middle East will gather to enjoy hundreds of sample giveaways, fitness competitions, meet-and-greets, panel discussions and more.

“It’s great to be back training with Kai in Dubai, and I’m really looking forward to another successful weekend at the Dubai Muscle Show,” said Cutler, a four-time Mr. Olympia winner and the principal in his own supplement and clothing lines, as well as multiple non-fitness related businesses. “It’s one thing being able to take our workout outside and into the sun, but to have the opportunity to pump some iron in front of such an amazing structure – well that’s just something else.”

Boasting more than 7.2 million combined Instagram followers, Greene and Cutler hit Dubai’s headlines this time last year when they turned the sandy seafront of Jumeirah Beach Hotel into Dubai’s very own ‘Muscle Beach’. Greene, who also starred as Funshine in Season 2 of Netflix hit, Stranger Things, is happy to be back in the Emirates.

“I’m super pumped about getting to meet our fans again this weekend,” said Greene, winner of the Arnold Classic on three occasions, before adding: “I cannot think of a better last workout to slip in before the exhibition than this – Ain Dubai has more curve than a Kai Greene bicep.”

The third annual Dubai Muscle Show takes place alongside Dubai Active Show from 7-8 December in DWTC’s Za’abeel Halls 4 – 6. Tickets are on sale now, with a single day adult price for each show available at AED75 online and AED100 on site.
