Who should go: Anyone looking to channel Rocky in a high-energy setting
Why: Founders Brian Cochrane and Linda Chambers say: “Underdogboxn caters for everyone from the complete novice to the professional athlete. The classes use a punch-by-numbers approach that makes it super easy to learn, but the workouts can be scaled so that everyone will walk away having had a great, challenging workout. The Aqua Bag Technology absorbs the impact of your punches, instead of sending the impact back through your joints, ligaments, and tendons, which means you can punch harder and more often, while reducing your risk of injury.”

Who should go: Those who like to beef up their spin session
Why: Get your cycling thrills indoors with RealRyder classes at the revamped Surge Body Fitness in Media City. As instructor Victoria Hall says: “Surge offers that outdoor cycling experience in a safe, fun environment. RealRyder teaches and rewards good form and proper pedal stroke, while riders experience the actions and benefits of leaning, turning, balancing and full-body coordination.” And now, Surge is upping the ante with classes that combine a 30-minute Surge ride with an added workout, such as the Surge & Core with a 15-minute mat class, or and Surge, Punch & Crunch with a 20-minute boxing round.

Who should go:: Women who want a tailored approach to training
Why: Building on the success of its 8 Week Transformation programme, Get Fit Chick has opened a new women’s studio in Al Quoz. Co-founder Kirsteen says: “Over time working with women in the gym, we noticed some were a little intimidated by the men working out in the same space. It caused some of our female clients to be a little self-conscious. We also realised that women don’t have the same body goals as men, so the movements and exercises we do are tailored for women,” in group classes such as Booty Blaster, Upper Cut, and Hard ‘n’ Heavy Legs.

Super SUP Fit

Who should go: Anyone looking for a fun new way to workout
Why: Professional dancer and pilates instructor Sophie Malpass has designed a boutique, 40-minute HIIT workout on water with her unique Super SUP Fit classes. The aim of the classes is to focus on individual muscle groups whilst working the stabilisers, coordination & balance all with a sense of fun and wellbeing. And you’ll certainly do just that. An intense HIIT workout is tough in itself, add to the fact that you’re balancing on a float and you’ll be working twice as hard to not only work all your muscles – but also stay on the board. It’s brilliant fun – and by the end you’ll have turned your belly-flopping off the board to burpees, squats and even some twists and turns.
Where: Drift Beach, One & Only Royal Mirage, 8am Wednesday, 9am Saturday, Dhs120. @supersupfit
