The newest branch of Physique 57 has opened on Al Thanya Street in Dubai. We channeled our inner ballerina and checked the barre fitness craze
The promise We were warned that that we probably wouldn’t be able to walk well being pushed to our limit in order to get closer to having a great set of pins. Step by step When we arrived our instructor Karlee – a trained dancer who was brought over from the States to open the City Walk branch - introduced herself to us, and the front desk receptionist gave a us a tour of the fresh location. We picked our choice of arm weights for the warm up ranging anywhere from 5lbs to 15lbs. Other props include a partially inflated ball help us achieve the perfect curve in our legs when lifting our limbs, plus of course the barre for all-important squats. To end the class we worked on out abdominals with some floor work which somewhat gave our thighs a workout. The result It’s not only the following day that we’re feeling the effects in my muscles but even walking out of the venue we noticed we had some trouble on the stairs. Hello toned ballerina bod. Pros Call us easily impressed but we were rather please about the place being stacked with fresh face and body towels for customers to use for during class and after for showers. Additionally, the super clean and bright changing rooms had everything we needed from spacious lockers to hair pins so we could feel fab and fresh after working up a sweat. Cons It’s expensive compared to other fitness classes in the city. More stretching should be advised following the class as it instantly takes and effect on your muscles. 5/5
