Boot camp on a beach

The mere thought of parading around on the beach in your tightest of workout clothes might be enough to turn your stomach but for record numbers of people a boot camp is a great way to work out and de-stress. The concept of a boot camp, if you’re not familiar, is to undertake an intense body workout. Rather than a gradual fitness plan a boot camp is usually undertaken to get rapid results for a looming event (pre-wedding or holiday seem to be popular options) or to kick start a new fitness regime. Head to the Jumeirah Beach Residence area early on a Saturday morning and you’re likely to see dozens of fitness enthusiasts stretching, jogging and lifting weights at the water’s edge. These are boot campers and we think everybody in Dubai should try it at least once.
