Dubai's D5 gym deals

D5 Executive Gymnasium’s special offerings

Fascial Stretch Therapy
The gym’s head of therapy, Danielle Donnelly, is a highly qualified strength coach who has previously worked with the England rugby team and Queens Park Rangers football club. She is the UAE’s only provider of full-body fascial stretch therapy, an incredibly effective technique used to increase flexibility and agility, and also decrease stiffness, and joint and muscular pain.

Posturology
D5 is currently the only facility in the Middle East offering this form of neuroscience, which deals with posture and alignment. Specialist coach Oliver Thompson has a vast knowledge of the brain and nervous system, and has built up a reputation of being able to “fix the unfixable”. He assesses clients to bring about changes in their posture by subconsciously orientating their body.

Women’s Lean Legs
This programme specifically works on women who have an oestrogen dominance showing in their fat distribution. This is an eight-week course with all areas based around detoxification and elimination of oestrogens, finishing each session with time in the UAE’s only infrared sauna. Lean Legs gets to the root cause of lower body fat and tackles the issue in a groundbreaking way.
