Another exciting event is coming up at Sheraton Abuja Hotel this weekend... and this is something you don’t want to miss!


Abuja is one beautiful city full of health-conscious people.

You can´t help but make this conclusion when everyone you meet these days is involved in one heart-pumping, sweat-inducing, muscle-toning activity or the other. Yoga, zumba, pilates, hiking, horse-riding, salsa, tai chi, tennis, jogging... name it, they do it here in the FCT. One lady I know actually goes swimming every day for an hour early in the morning before going to work! That means she´s at the pool from 5am to 6am!
