How to stay fit this summer in Dubai
Boot camps are widely regarded as one of the best ways to trim down quickly, and there are plenty of options to choose from in Dubai.
A notoriously tough session, which will leave you drenched in pools of your own sweat, awaits at Barry’s, but if it’s quick results you’re after there are few better. A high-intensity, one-hour workout which combines weight training and running on the treadmill. Both tiring and enjoyable.
