Now that gyms are reopening across the UAE, we can’t wait to get back to some of our favourite group classes and up the ante on our fitness plans. Home work-outs were fun and all, but nothing compares to an electrifying atmosphere, awesome beats and trainers motivating you in the flesh!
Thankfully, the Privilee team have done the hard work for you by trying and testing out Dubai’s top HIIT style fitness classes to find out which ones actually packed-a-punch and burnt the most calories.
If you didn’t know, HIIT stands for High-Intensity Interval Training, a mix of intense bursts of movement with lower intensity or rests that’s proven to make you burn more fat, increase metabolism and basically get fitter (and flatter) faster, what’s not to love?
