Reality TV Show White Collar DXB Returns as Fighting Fit Dubai

Wednesday, 20 July 2016

Dubai-based reality TV show White Collar DXB will be returning for a second season this October with a new look format, and a new title – Fighting Fit Dubai.

Created by Nomad Productions, the eight-part reality TV series follows a group of everyday men and women as they take on the challenge to become champions of the boxing ring.

Season 1 – broadcast on OSN in 2015 – will now be broadcast in the UK, China and across parts of Asia and Africa; with local versions of the show also in the pipeline.

“The new title better reflects the direction of Season 2. The show is all about contestants of all shapes and sizes, professions and nationalities, male and female, using the experience as a catalyst to change their lives,” said Phil Griffiths, Director of Fighting Fit Dubai and co-founding partner of Nomad Productions.

“Boxing is the vehicle for them to achieve this change but, the focus is more holistic this time round; putting greater emphasis on strength, conditioning, lifestyle, nutrition, and psychology. Not to mention, a more in-depth depiction of the emotional journeys the contestants and their loved ones go through because of the show.”

Only 50 potential contestants will be picked from the pool of applicants to take part in the trials, with two teams of eight, and a team of reserve contestants then chosen to be part of the show. 

Viewers will watch as the contestants – from all walks of life, nationalities and levels of fitness – train under the watch of the Fighting Fit Dubai Experts and Trainers, in boxing skills, strength and conditioning and health and nutrition.

After eight weeks of training, the two teams of eight will compete against each other in the boxing ring on the final ‘Fight Night’, for the chance to be crowned Fighting Fit Dubai 2016 Champions.
