My name is Sarah Zakzouk and this blog is a bit of a mish mash of my passion for words and a love of sport. After studying a lot of literature at University, I went on to pursue a career in Publishing in London – living the dream (and reading a lot more books). Fitness has always played a significant role in my life, which is what led me to my career in sports e-commerce here in Dubai.

I currently manage the digital content strategy for a regional sports company, and in my spare time I am a certified STOTT Pilates instructor – so sport, fitness and wellness are very much a part of my life. I am a keen swimmer and love my water sports, so you will more often than not find some sort of nautically-themed story on my social media feed.

Sports And The City features quite a varied range of topics including: fitness trends, life detoxing, interesting reads, and fun places to travel to. I also do a lot of interviews with people who are doing awesome things, both regionally and globally, because I think it’s great to hear people’s stories and to see the world from different perspectives. So if you’re into any of the above then check out and feel free to get in touch at, or visit the Contact page if you have any feedback to share or questions to ask.
