BARRE AT DE­FINE

What's On (Dubai) - - KILLER WORKOUTS -

The boutique stu­dio in Dubai Ma­rina is home to the city’s tough­est barre work­outs. If you’re a ‘no pain, no gain’ ex­er­ciser, you’ll take pride in keep­ing up with the re­lent­less lunges, squats and lifts, many of which use re­sis­tance bands and dumb­bells. Each set of rep­e­ti­tions is de­signed to strengthen and tone the smaller mus­cle groups that old-school aer­o­bic work­outs barely touch. Classes last 45 min­utes, burn­ing 400 to 800 calo­ries.

What is your favourite part about be­ing a barre in­struc­tor?

I am a form fa­natic. In De­fine body (barre) I can re­ally help clients align and feel mus­cles they have never felt be­fore. I also love help­ing clients ad­vance their skills on the more dif­fi­cult move­ments that take time and com­mit­ment to master.

What sets De­fine apart from other stu­dios?

There is zero ego in our stu­dio. Clients of all lev­els work out side by side with­out feel­ing in­tim­i­dated. In our set­ting you aren’t pushed, you are em­pow­ered to bring out your strength.

Do you have a par­tic­u­lar stand­out class me­mory?

She will kill me when she reads this, but Bar­bara is my stand­out me­mory. Ev­ery Thurs­day night she sings along to the songs on my De­fine rev (cy­cling) playlist. When clients bring a sense of joy to the work I am grate­ful to them for­ever.
