This year we have seen the world’s population compete for the least amount of steps taken and the most amount of naps accumulated while being confined to our houses and largely still are. So when the 300×30 fitness challenge was announced we were raring to get involved. It’s time we stopped being couch potatoes and started to drop those quarantine kilos (so we can put them all back on at Christmas, naturally).
The beauty of the 30×30 is you can choose what you do, when you do it and how to fit it into your lifestyle. We’ve chosen 5 of our favourite places to get a sweat on and save money at the same time to help you complete your 30×30 –
Zen Yoga is Dubai’s original yoga & Pilates studio. All of their instructors are certified and highly trained, ensuring you have an authentic yoga or Pilates experience with no injuries and reap all the benefits.
Yoga House is for people from all walks of life – the advanced and the beginners, the young and the old. That’s what makes it a perfect spot to help you with your 20×30 fitness challenge. It is a “breathing community” where one can practice, connect and most importantly, be themselves. The studio offers Yoga, Pilates and Meditation sessions along with high-intensity classes such as Barre, Power Pilates and other fusions.
Aquaspin™ is a revolutionary aqua exercise that’s kind to the joints, yet burns a huge amount of calories. The 45-minute class involves cycling on state-of-the-art spin bikes submerged inside the water which is different and fun. It provides fantastic resistance for muscle tone and cardiovascular training too!
