Alternative workouts in Dubai



Sick of your typical gym routine and uninspired by the endless rows of treadmills? Perhaps you’ve had to give up your outdoor jog to escape the fast approaching summer heat? Have no fear – here at ShortList we’ve scaled the city to find the most unusual activities you can have a crack at to stay fit. Best of all, they’re much more fun than pumping iron.

Bouncing on a trampoline probably doesn’t scream exercise but, surprisingly, it’s a great  cardio vascular workout.
What: This is an all-round workout that engages your core to help keep you stable. It’s fun and can be done with a group of friends. Roll, bounce, flip, walk up the walls, you name it you can do it – and you won’t even realise that you’re exercising.
Location: Bouncebehind Ace Hardware, Al Quoz.
Cost: From AED80
