If your New Year’s resolution is to get into shape, there’s something new in town that might just pique your interest.

But, instead of slaving away on the treadmill (we’re sure that nobody actually likes doing that) you might want to take a look at this alternative fitness challenge coming to town.

Best Body Co, the guys behind the 6in4 Challenge (which we did back in October, and it works) have just announced a brand-new version, which will give spinning enthusiasts the chance to take unlimited trips into a virtual reality studio for a month.

The Trip by Les Mills is an immersive spinning experience in Business Bay’s GFX gym, which uses a gigantic screen as well as bikes that gently move as you pound your way up steep climbs, whizz down sharp descents and carve your way around a winding track that looks like it’s straight out of Tron.

For Dhs999 you can get unlimited rides of The Trip, but you’ll also get to go to loads more of the classes on offer at GFX, including body pump, body combat, Zumba, Pilates and even yoga to help stretch out those achy muscles.

Hit it hard, follow the diet, and if you lose 6kg, you’ll get a free month’s gym membership at GFX (if it’s your first time doing the 6in4 Challenge). Registration for the GFX 6in4 Challenge is open until Thursday January 24, and the early-bird rate of Dhs999 ends on Friday January 18. The challenge starts on Friday January 25, and ends on Saturday February 23.

Alternatively, if spinning and weight training aren’t quite your thing, you can learn to box by taking the 6in4 Challenge at Real Boxing Only Gym in Al Quoz. You can join in unlimited boxing lessons and classes, as well as circuit training, again for Dhs999 – and if you lose your 6kg you’ll get a free month’s membership at the boxing gym.

Registration for the Real Boxing 6in4 Challenge is open until Friday January 25, with the early-bird rate of Dhs999 ending on Friday January 19. The challenge starts on Saturday January 26, and ends on Friday February 22.
