A world leading fitness instructor, free fitness classes, fun for the kids and organic veggies on offer at the hub of the Palm Jumeirah community in the @GoldenMGalleria.
The cooler weather is here, and if you’re like us, your thoughts turn to getting fitter.
If you fancy taking up a new fitness regime, but you’re not sure where to begin, then His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s month-long Dubai Fitness Challenge might be just the ticket.
In support of this initiative, Golden Mile Galleria, the upmarket entertainment and shopping destination on Palm Jumeirah is turning itself into a fitness hub with a ‘Fitness Festival’ filled with the chance to try out new activities every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday until 11th November.
Rock up in your gym gear and you’ll get the chance to take part in a number of free fitness activities, including yoga, circuit training, kick-boxing, Zumba, hip hop dancing, high intensity interval training (HIIT) sessions and Latino dance classes. There’s even a drum workout.
But there’s more – the highlight of the festival is a high intensity ‘BBG’ workout session hosted by none other than highly-acclaimed Australian fitness personality, Kayla Istines.
Personal trainer Istines, who has a whopping 7.7m Instagram followers, was named top fitness influencer in the world this year by Forbes Magazine, and is perhaps best known for her Bikini Body Guide 28-minute workouts – which you can take part in with her in a one-off session on November 3rd at 5pm at the outdoor area of Golden Mile Galleria 1 in Golden Mile Building 4.
