New hy­brid work­outs in Dubai; coast to coast cy­cle chal­lenge

What's On (Dubai) - - CONTENTS -

Where: Busi­ness Bay

Ever heard of SoulCy­cle? The class is a cult favourite work­out in the US and UK, and it’s where the in­struc­tors at this gor­geous Busi­ness Bay stu­dio take their in­spi­ra­tion from. If you want the men­tal up­lift of a yoga class with the deep burn of spin­ning, Mo­tion is the place to go.

Classes are listed on their web­site ac­cord­ing to the mu­sic, which is great if you’re fussy about the tunes that you like to spin to (we tried a Prince-themed class, and it was awe­some). Other themes in­clude Michael Jackson, Brit­ney vs Justin and ’90s Hip Hop and R&B.

What re­ally makes the class unique, though, is the in­struc­tion: a stream of pos­i­tive, en­cour­ag­ing af­fir­ma­tions from the teach­ers. Some­times their script pumps you up, some­times it calms you down, al­most like a guided med­i­ta­tion. We couldn’t help but get caught up in it, feel­ing like we could take on the world.

Try it if: You want an up­lift­ing car­dio work­out with a men­tal boost to go with it
