Privilee Member, Julia AKA @RoadTripChic, decided to focus on her health and listen to what her body tells her in 2023. With this in mind, she wanted to try a slower-paced fitness class so headed to TruFusion Dubai, over to Julia!
While not a new year’s resolution, I made it my goal for 2023 to look after myself more and to listen to the signs of my body. One of those reoccurring signs is a tensed and painful back after a day of sitting at a desk in front of a screen in the office and is a regular reminder to take better care of my body!
I was looking on my Privilee app for a class that includes stretching and mobilisation, which is when I found TruFusion and instantly booked a class.
Here is my experience…
Conveniently located on Al Wasl Road in Jumeirah Safa 1, between DIFC/Downtown/Business Bay on one side and Al Sufouh/Marina/The Palm on the other side, TruFusion is based on the ground floor of the Al Ferdous complex. The studio offers two parking options - there is complimentary parking for visitors behind the studio and also RTA spots on the service road in front of the building. Thanks to the big glass front you can’t miss the studio!
TruFusion has many different classes which are suitable for all fitness levels. Whether you are looking to build strength, improve your cardio or get more flexible, TruFusion has got you covered!
The class which grabbed my attention and made me want to visit the studio is called Tru Hot Yin. The motto of the yoga class is “Relax, unwind and release what no longer serves you”, with the focus being on stretching, increasing your range of motion and conscious relaxation. This class as well as all the other Yoga, Pilates and Barre classes at TruFusion take place in a heated room, working with the advantages of heat on your muscles, connective tissue and ligaments.
I instantly felt relaxed when I entered the tranquil, 37 degrees, purple low lit room, which has floor-to-ceiling mirrors on the walls and a high ceiling, making it feel very spacious. The class required no prior knowledge or preparation and was very well guided by the female instructor who thoroughly explained and demonstrated every movement. With the shoulder, back and hip focus, we worked exactly on those areas that usually get minimal to no stretching and mobilisation during the day. The 60-minute class was a perfect post-work class to relax both body and soul after a stressful day at work.
For those who are looking for a more powerful workout, TruFusion also offers Boxing, Kettlebell and various HIIT classes. These take place in a different, non-heated room with a more nightclub, funky vibe to it.
If you prefer to work out amongst women only, there are dedicated different ladies-only classes, both in the heated and non-heated studios. View the full fitness schedule here.
The studio and team
Once you enter the studio from the street you find yourself directly in front of the reception area where Privilee Members check in. The team at TruFusuon were so welcoming, friendly and open, giving me a tour of the studio, and explaining what to find and where. Towels are provided for every class participant and if you are thirsty or hungry after your workout there is a bar right next to the reception offering different refreshments, such as tasty protein shakes - which Privilee Members save 10% at.
Good to know….
As a Privilee Member, you can attend two classes per week at TruFusion, complimentary. To make a booking, just give the studio a call at +971 4 288 4620 or email Dubai@TruFusion.com.
A super welcoming and authentic studio! Don’t be shy, give it a try!
