Fitness First to Showcase Latest Innovations in Group Exercise during ‘Fitness Fridays at Downtown Dubai’
Dubai-UAE: February, 2013 – Fitness First, a Fitness First franchise owned and operated under license by the Landmark Leisure and Hospitality Services Ltd, is set to add another new dimension to weekends at Downtown Dubai. Displaying latest innovations in group exercise in an activity like no other, Fitness First will engage the community from all age groups and nationalities on 15 and 22 February, as well as 1and 8March at 10:00am.
Building on the success of the ‘Downtown Dubai Dance Extravaganza’, Emaar is once again joining hands with Fitness First to host the initiative titled ‘Fitness Fridays at Downtown Dubai’.
Fitness First will choreograph the sequence on select music, featuring routines such as Body Combat, Pilates, Flow Yoga, Zumba, and Body Attack. The event will be led by Fitness First trainers.
‘Fridays at Downtown Dubai’ are free for the community to participate and enjoy the fun-filled group routines and simple moves that do not require flawless coordination. In addition to improving core strength, flexibility, agility, and economy of motion, the exercises will help participants relax through easing muscle tension and stress. The event, which will include interesting giveaways to attendees, will also showcase Zumba demonstrations.
Mark Botha, Group Operations and Marketing Manager, Fitness First Middle East, said: “We are honoured to collaborate with Emaar once again to host yet another exciting event. Group exercise encourages fitness and allows individuals of all ages and fitness levels to experience new routines, de-stress and stay fit. ‘Fitness Fridays at Downtown Dubai’ comes as part of our efforts to motivate the community to adopt healthier lifestyles.”
The classes on 8March will be dedicated to International Women’s Day. The sessions will particularly spotlight Fitness First’s exclusively designed clubs for women who seek to get fit and stay healthy.
Described as ‘The Centre of Now,’ Downtown Dubai is the definitive lifestyle destination in the city, featuring several must-visit attractions including Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building; The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping and entertainment destination; and The Dubai Fountain, the world’s largest performing fountain.
