Work out somewhere new

Energy Plus has just opened its doors at Al Forsan Village in the capital and it’s claiming to be the first “high-end fitness destination” in the area. So if you’re keen to get a workout in and want to try somewhere novel, this one could be worth breaking a sweat for. From what we hear, the gym offers fitness enthusiasts plenty of space to exercise and has all the usual equipment along with a boxing ring, functional training area and Olympic-sized swimming pool.

If you haven’t been to Abu Dhabi Mall in a while you might have missed one of its coolest new attractions – a Nutella bar. Yes, Nutella-lovers, the new Vox cinema that has taken up residence at the mall provides an even bigger incentive to catch the latest flick.
