Sol’s is the latest healthy café on EW’s radar thanks to its menu of smooth­ies, su­per­foods and quinoa bowls. Not only does Sol’s serve up pro­tein-rich break­fasts and build-your-own sal­ads, it also breaks down all of its dishes by calo­rie, fat, car­bo­hy­drate and pro­tein con­tent – su­per handy if you’re fol­low­ing a set eat­ing plan. Mem­bers of nearby gym BARE Fit­ness also get 15 per cent off. It’s known as the “hap­pi­est 5k on the planet”, and the Colour Run will def­i­nitely bring a smile to your face if you snap up an en­try fee at the early bird rate. A lim­ited num­ber of ad­vanced en­tries are still avail­able for the run at the Dubai Au­to­drome on Novem­ber 21 at Dhs140. thecolorrun.ae Just the natty look of these train­ers will in­spire you to train harder. But be­fore you call us su­per­fi­cial, we’re also im­pressed by their glove-like fit and func­tion­al­ity. The highly- an­tic­i­pated Ree­bok CrossFit Nano 5.0 has ar­rived and, with in­creased pro­tec­tion and dura­bil­ity cour­tesy of Kevlar ma­te­rial, it’s safe to say we’re a lit­tle bit ex­cited. With their fo­cus on grip, trac­tion, and sta­bil­ity, Ree­bok de­scribes these as their “tough­est shoe yet.” You could well find us sign­ing up for those CrossFit classes now. What’s that you say? An Ital­ian get­away that won’t leave us bloated af­ter a week of pasta, cheese and gelato? That’s what Dea Method is promis­ing with its Barre and Bal­ance re­treat in Tus­cany. Run­ning from Au­gust 29 to Septem­ber 4, guests will en­joy daily barre, car­dio and yoga classes, gourmet or­ganic meals, cook­ing lessons and ex­cur­sions – all while stay­ing in the beau­ti­ful sur­round­ings of the 600 year old Villa Chimera.

Rates start at Dhs10,835 for a shared room on the Barre and Bal­ance re­treat, not in­clud­ing flights and trans­fers. Among the in­struc­tors will be NYLA Method alumni Brit­tany Costa, who is of­fer­ing per­sonal and cor­po­rate yoga and barre ses­sions.

Jumeirah’s new my30min­utes stu­dio caters to the time-poor (or

ex­er­cise-averse) with its su­per speedy work­out ses­sions. Gym­go­ers are hooked up to an Elec­tric Mus­cle Stim­u­la­tion (EMS) ma­chine for the du­ra­tion of their work­out to boost its ef­fec­tive­ness. Ac­cord­ing to the team, a work­out us­ing EMS tar­gets 90 per cent of mus­cle fi­bres com­pared to 40 per cent in a tra­di­tional ses­sion, mean­ing you get a more ef­fec­tive work­out

in less time. Your half hour gym trip al­lows five min­utes to change, a 20-minute EMS ses­sion with a qual­i­fied trainer, and five min­utes of body re­lax­ation. Now that’s

what we call ef­fi­cient. A trial ses­sion starts at Dhs250.
