What is the num­ber one item on your wish list? To fi­nally learn how to solve the Ru­bik’s cube.

What good deed are you hop­ing to do to­day? If I can give some­body a de­cent lunch or din­ner, my day will be made.

If you could have one su­per­power, what would it be and why? This is a bit odd, but I would make every­body stop grow­ing af­ter the age of five. When you’re a child, all your thoughts, ac­tions and emo­tions are so hon­est and pure. No one thinks about any­thing like world dom­i­na­tion or sab­o­tage.

Your idea of an ex­er­cise rou­tine? I work out three days a week, for an hour. I’ve learnt that you need to be re­ally re­li­gious about work­out ses­sions — be fully fo­cused for those 60 min­utes.

Your favourite hang­out in the UAE? It would have to be JBR or Kite Beach.

What is the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morn­ing? How many more min­utes can I spend sleep­ing to­day? Ev­ery minute is pre­cious at that time of the day.

The app on your smart­phone that you click on most of­ten? What­sapp.

Your favourite movie char­ac­ter of all time and why? De­pend­ing on my mood, it usu­ally shifts be­tween the sim­ple­boy- help­ing- every­body Rocky to the best- friend Mav­er­ick from Top Gun.

What is one ma­jor life les­son you’ve learnt and what ad­vice would you give oth­ers? One thing I’ve learnt the hard way is that ex­pe­ri­ence is what comes when you don’t get some­thing you want. Also, ev­ery in­con­ve­nience is an op­por­tu­nity. HE’S THE MAN: Sid’s favourite char­ac­ter is boxer Rocky from the epony­mous movie

Da­man’s Ac­tivelife is launch­ing a new monthly ver­ti­cal train­ing event named Trainzsc as part of its pop­u­lar ‘ Train’ pro­gramme — and, for the first time, the Zayed Sports City Sta­dium will open its doors to the pub­lic for free!

Be­gin­ning on April 28, the event will take place on the last Thurs­day of ev­ery month, be­tween 6pm and 9pm, where par­tic­i­pants can climb the sta­dium steps for in­creased car­dio­vas­cu­lar and mus­cle- build­ing ex­er­cise.

The event is fam­i­lyfriendly, and of­fers a play area for chil­dren to en­joy while their par­ents ex­er­cise.

It is nec­es­sary to reg­is­ter in or­der to at­tend the event. This can be done at the venue on the day, or queues can be avoided by reg­is­ter­ing be­fore­hand at www. trainzsc. com.
