The Westin Dubai to celebrate Global Wellness Day with free workouts

Expect free fitness classes and discounted spa sessions at Al Habtoor City

Sometimes, we all need a good kick to get us motivated, and The Westin Dubai Al Habtoor City is providing a mighty one to get us back into shape.

The hotel is launching a Wellness Week in order to celebrate Global Running Day and Global Wellness Day from Wednesday June 6 to Thursday 14.

There are a host of activities to participate in and, most importantly, quite a few of them are completely free of charge, so there’s no excuse not to join in.

Starting the week off is a 5km run along the Dubai Water Canal to honour Global Running Day on Wednesday June 6, where the hotel’s dedicated running experts will lead the way.

After the trek, joggers are invited to refuel at the SuperFoodsRX buffet in The Westin Dubai and also enjoy the facilities at the hotel spa until midnight.

As for Global Wellness Day on Saturday June 9, the hotel will be offering special 30-minute treatments for just Dhs100, with a choice to double your spa time with an exclusive offer.

Coaches from BeStrong have teamed up with The Westin Dubai to offer free classes to all who attend from 5pm. These trainers are sure to put you through the paces, so put on that gym gear and bring your A game.

The schedule includes modern dance on Thursday June 7, yoga on Friday June 8, circuit training at WestinWORKOUT on Saturday June 9 and air drum workout classes on Sunday June 10.

Classes will be on a first come, first served basis, so be sure to get down there early.

All the free events and activities are to promote health and happiness on the internationally celebrated day.

The concept was established in Turkey in 2012 and has grown globally, with more than 100 countries taking part in the celebrations and events in 2017.

No more laying around, it’s time to get motivated (and pampered at the spa).

Free (BeStrong classes, run), from Dhs100 (spa treatments). Wed Jun 6-Thu Jun 14. Times vary. The Westin Dubai Al Habtoor City, (04 437 3333).
