TWO NEW THINGS TO TRY OUT ON THE PALM THIS WEEKEND!
FITNESS FIRST OPENS BRAND NEW GYM AT NAKHEEL MALL
The brand is introducing an impressive array of technologically driven programmes and facilities at its new club in Nakheel Mall, Palm Jumeirah, offering a glimpse into the future of Fitness First clubs in the region.
Among new concepts sure to reenergise the fitness schedule of the community is a dynamic boxing class that provides a sensory knockout; a cubed and wall-less workout studio likened to a silent disco for fitness; and an immersive indoor cycling experience that draws on data visualisation technology and online gaming.
Two new studios check out!
A boutique HIIT studio without walls, KUBE uses lighting techniques to create a bright white cube that sets the stage for a workout like no other. KUBE consists of four stations featuring a range of specialist equipment including the VersaClimber cardio machine, the Fitbench multipurpose workout bench, and the Octane AirdyneX fitness exercise bike. And in a first for any Fitness First programme, users will be able to actively recover in preparation for the next station using the Theragun handheld massage gun. The wireless audio system allows users to push to the beat of their own playlist with a direct link to the coach, while the rest of the gym floor remains un-impacted by the class.
Delivering all the benefits of traditional classes but in a hot environment, Hot Studio helps to reduce warm-up time and delivers workouts with extra intensity. The studio is powered by an ingenious infrared heating system that warms the body directly rather than heating the air. The result – a feeling like the natural warmth of sunlight rather than the stuffy hot air found in conventionally heated studios. A range of ‘hot’ classes including Hot Power Vinyasa, Yoga with weights and restorative yoga strengthen the cardiovascular system by increasing heart rate while eliminating toxins.
