Physique 57 fitness studio opens in Dubai

Physique 57, a fitness company that has attracted celebrities in New York and Los Angeles, will be launching a new studio next month in Jumeirah. Workouts offered combine isometric exercises and orthopaedic stretches, which tone muscles and burn fat. Meanwhile, the instructors Nora Hickman and Neva Cockrell from New York are on their way to the UAE. Visit www.physique57.com.

Give ME 3000

Grant Goes, who won the 2012 Dubai’s Fittest Man contest, will be participating in the Give ME 3000 event at 9.30am on Saturday at the X-Fit gym in Knowledge Village to raise awareness of the importance of exercise. The challenge involves 300 reps of 10 tough exercises such as a 32kg kettle bell swing, bar pull-ups, 60kg dead-lifts, burpees, box jumps and more. Although Goes will be completing them all, participants can see fit to attempt as many as they can. Visit www.fitnesslink.me for more details.
