Summer’s always seem way hotter in UAE. Peeling of gymming clothes seems like the only option after a thorough workout! I usually tend to shy away from exercising during…. well, exercising any time ever!! Too lazy to start!! If I’m that lazy, you must be wondering what got me writing about fitness??!!??!!
Two amazing fitness training options which are perfect for a lazy ass person like me!! Plus working out in water doesn’t even feel like a workout but shows awesome results. Aquabiking is definitely for me!!
L’Atelier Aquafitness offers a dynamic 45-minute class that is a unique mix of both water aerobics and indoor spinning. With up to a whopping 700 calories burnt in one session, both the upper and lower body are given a full workout, structured by an initial warm-up, followed by the acceleration phase and lastly a stretching stage. This effective workout strengthens muscles and is suitable for everyone regardless of age or fitness level. You do not even need to be able to swim to take part in a class.
The aquabiking phenomenon comes with many health and wellness benefits that are not just physical. Participants will leave a class feeling invigorated and energized with a clear mind. With continual classes you will start to shape and sculpt your body, reducing stubborn cellulite and troublesome water retention. Due to water buoyancy properties, your body weight is divided by 50% which reduces the risk of injury to joints, and the cooling effects of being submerged in the pool reduce sweating and pressure on the heart, making it a truly enjoyable overall body and mind workout.
The Aquabiking class is for just AED 1,395 a month. Totally worth every dime!
The second summer exercise class from L’Atelier Aquafitness is the ‘Iyashi Dome’, a revolutionary device inspired by a Japanese practice called Suno Ryoho where the Japanese bury themselves in sand near hot springs on the beach to eliminate toxins. The Iyashi Dome uses unique technology to deeply cleanse the body, restore its balance and gain an efficient and long-lasting slimming effect.
Who wouldn’t want to just lie down on their lazy ass and lose weight at the same time? This is right up my alley!
The Iyashi Dome works by emitting infra-red rays from inside the dome that the body absorbs and thus stimulates the metabolism, triggering deep sweating similar to running 20 kilometers, with no negative effects on the body. One session lasts for 30 minutes and the head remains uncovered whilst the rest of the body is cocooned comfortably inside the dome. During the session the body eliminates up to 1200ml of water and unwanted toxins, whilst burning up to 600 calories.
With a host of health benefits from detoxification, regeneration, weight loss and muscular relaxation, the body is left deeply cleansed and purified post session, with a reduction in cellulite. This powerful tool for weight loss and overall well being is proving extremely popular amongst the health conscious women of Dubai.
The price per session is AED 280. L’Atelier Aquafitness is located on Al Wasl Road in Dubai. For further information, please visit www.latelieraquafitness.com or contact them on 04- 338 8323.
