Functional Fitness at the Emirates Dubai 7s is back for its third year!

Taking place on the 29-30th November and 1st December at The Sevens Stadium's Pitch 3, WODON3 is an inclusive fitness competition that caters to the fitness elite right through to the social athlete who wants to push their limits in a fun filled weekend alongside their gym crew.

The need for WODON3 at the Dubai 7s was born out of the increasing synergy between fitness and the existing sports, rugby, netball and cricket, that bring unrivalled excitement to the event both for competitors and spectators.

In true Dubai 7s fashion, the fitness competition is the ultimate platform for athletes to display teamwork, test their fitness and experience the good time festival vibes from morning until dusk.

WODON3 brings a best in class event to the UAE where competitors can celebrate the hard work they put in training each day and show just what their body and mind are capable of on the competition floor.

This table provides competitors with an understanding of what is required from a skill, strength and fitness perspective for each division.

Competitors in each division should feel comfortable performing the exercises shown for more than three reps and be confident performing movement variations (lifts + carries) with the weights and equipment outlined in the table.

Whilst the exercises shown provide a good example of what to expect within each division; they are not an exhaustive list. However, any other programmed movements will fall within the skills/strength requirements shown.

There will NOT be any handstand variations, muscle ups or barbell snatches.

Standards will be announced later in the year.


Becoming a volunteer at WODON3 is an awesome opportunity for the wider fitness community not only to come and soak up the atmosphere but also to play a vital role in ensuring the success of the event.

Everyone who joins the team will receive exclusive merchandise, refreshments in the form of food and drink throughout the weekend and, of course, a ticket to enjoy the entire festival!
