He is taking the region by storm with a growing fan base of more than 650k+ followers on Instagram. From the different types of workouts, he posts on social media, describe him as ‘The Beast’ because, according to him, there was no one else in the Middle East doing his style of freestyle and aggressive workouts.
“I encourage people to swap their burgers for burpees and get into shape with unique training routines that resemble something that can be visualised in a film,” said Yari. “I have been training almost all my life, and I was ready the minute I knew about Guinness World Records Day. So, I set up my cameras the next exact day, and filmed the entire scene to smash the previous record title,” said Walid.
Areej has paved her way to the top of women football in the MENA region. She is a Creative Services professional by day, and a footballer by night. She lived most of her life chasing opportunities in football, forming football teams both in school and during higher studies in the American University in Dubai, and attending many of the women’s football championships within the MENA region.

“I am incredibly proud to be Guinness World Records title holder and excited to help celebrate the launch of Guinness World Records Day this year. It is proud moment for me, for my country, and for women around the world. Why football? because it is my passion,” said Al Hammadi.
