• City legend Joleon Lescott visited Abu Dhabi to take part in the Healthy Lifestyle programme at Cranleigh Abu Dhabi
• As part of the programme, Manchester City and Healthpoint delivered health-focused sessions on the importance of diet, emotional well-being, exercise and self-esteem
• Over 12,500 students across all Emirates have participated in the Healthy Lifestyle programme since 2017 with further sessions planned to be delivered this season in Abu Dhabi.
Abu Dhabi, UAE, 21st March 2023: Manchester City legend Joleon Lescott recently shared his passion for health and fitness with the children of Cranleigh Abu Dhabi, joining classroom and practical football sessions as part of Manchester City and Healthpoint’s Healthy Lifestyle programme.
The visit to Cranleigh Abu Dhabi is the latest addition to the already successful Healthy Lifestyle programme, a unique collaboration between Healthpoint and Manchester City who both share a passion for promoting the benefits of physical and mental well-being and believe in the power of sport to encourage positive lifestyle choices among young people.
Since its inception in 2017, the Healthy Lifestyle programme has delivered free health education to over 12,500 students across all Emirates. The programme is designed by health and well-being experts and educates children on the importance of physical fitness, nutrition, sleep and self-esteem through a combination of both practical and theoretical sessions delivered by Manchester City coaches.
Joleon Lescott and Healthpoint Specialist Paediatrician, Dr. Maurice Khoury, paid a special visit to Cranleigh Abu Dhabi to deliver the sessions. Participants learned how their current lifestyle choices could foster healthier, happier lives as they grow older.
Commenting on the visit, Joleon Lescott said: “It was fantastic to be a part of the Healthy Lifestyle programme at Cranleigh Abu Dhabi and you could really see how valuable the sessions were for the kids. They really knew their stuff, talking all about the importance of hydration and nutrition and were really excited about making good lifestyle choices.
“The work the club and Healthpoint are doing is extremely beneficial in encouraging the younger generation in the region to grow up healthy and thriving.”
The programme continues to be delivered weekly across Abu Dhabi by Manchester City coaches, and there are two more exciting visits at The Pearl Academy and Al Bateen before the end of the school year with special guests. 
Commenting on the visit, Dr. Maurice Khoury, Specialist Paediatrician, Healthpoint, said “Healthpoint has always prioritised health through education and learning. We aim to teach these values at an early age. Having star players and Manchester City football team supporting us in our pursuit, means we can help make a positive impact on society.
“The children were excited to learn ways in which they could better look after their health. Their enthusiasm translated into productive sessions, and we were able to get good back-and-forth.” 
Manchester City and Healthpoint have been strategic partners since 2014. They have worked closely on public outreach programmes and knowledge exchange. The partners will continue to run the Healthy Lifestyle programme to encourage children across the Emirates to live a healthy and active lifestyle and access information about healthy habits.
