Weight training Kickboxing 9 Round Boxing
Where: Al Manara, Sheikh Zayed Road
If you’ve been hitting the boxsets hard this summer, 9 Round Boxing in Al Manara off of Sheikh Zayed Road might provide an energy boost: the class, which originated in America, will burn a minimum of 500 calories per session. Best of all, we’re told that you can burn all of that in just 30 minutes. A new class starts every half hour too, so there’s no excuse not to fit it into your schedule.
Rather than a traditional kickboxing class, you’ll work your way through nine stations, guided by the resident trainers: strength stations (kettle bells, medicine balls and more), kickbox fitness stations where you’ll spar, and an abs and core station where you’ll work on the elusive six-pack. Members also get a nutrition guide to help them get the best results.
Try it if: You want maximum results in a short space of time
Don’t bother if: You don’t like to be rushed in the gym
