4 fun exercise classes to try in Dubai this week
The Swerve, Sprint and Surge at Surge Body Fitness
If bikes, fast beats and disco lights are your thing, then we have a treat for you. The Swerve, Sprint and Surge is billed as a bike routine with a difference, and promises to tone your upper body, tighten your abs and sculpt your legs - no drab gym membership required (hurrah). We’d like to be able to say it’s painless as well as fun, however...

Where: Surge Body Fitness, Concord Tower, Dubai Media City

Tango at Tempo Dance Centre
Fact: dancing is good for you. When you hit the dance floor not only are you burning all those shawarma calories, but you’re also increasing your flexibility and strength. For a dance routine with a bit of a difference, try a tango dance class at Tempo Dance Centre. Tango originated in Argentina and is believed to be good for your cardiovascular health. Heart benefits aside, imagine how many people you’ll impress with all those smooth moves...

Muay Thai at The Warehouse Gym
Muay Thai is a combat sport that originated in Thailand, and like all martial arts it demands a lot of self regulation and control. In the Warehouse Gym’s high intensity, non-contact training version you get to do a lot of kicking and punching. Our verdict? It is the perfect way to relieve some of that mid-week stress. As well as a great alternative to anger management classes...
When: August 30, 8pm
Where: The Warehouse Gym, Umm Suqeim Road, Al Quoz 3

Bounce Fit at Bounce Dubai
Bounce Dubai is trampoline heaven. Their one-hour exercise routine, Bounce Fit, gives you a bit of structure so that you’re doing more than jumping up and down aimlessly (although there is absolutely nothing wrong with that). This supercharged, high intensity workout is said to blast your core, improve your muscle tone and lift your heart rate. Did we mention that you get to bounce up and down for an hour?
Bookings must be made at least 12 hours in advance.
When: August 31, 7pm
Where: Bounce Dubai, behind Ace Hardware, Al Quoz
