Well, neither did the few ladies who started Urban Energy's running club... now, 5 weeks into the programme, everyone enjoys a weekly run outside, in the fresh air of Umm Suqueim or Arabian Ranches.  Our running class are specifically designed for beginners, but every week brings a different workout to ensure that you progress towards your running goals.  Running in a group makes it so much easier ! Contact us if you want to try it... the weather is extraordinary at the moment. It would be a shame to miss out !

Urban Energy will continue take advantage of the outdoors until the weather no longer permits it. We are in the process of finding a suitable facility for the summer.  In the meantime, enjoy the fresh air, the brisk morning, the beautiful sunshine and the greenery around Dubai.  TODAY IS A GOOD DAY!

Be a knockout this year !
lady kickboxing Everybody is talking about it. It's the new craze in town but what's the fuss all about?  Urban Energy's Urban kick class is a fun group exercise class based on thai kickboxing.  Armed with boxing gloves, you will punch & kick your way to fitness in a series of combination moves aimed at working both your upper and lower body.  Add to that a little cardio and you've got yourself the best way to tone up and get rid of these flabby bits... QUICK! The class is fun & varied so you will never get bored. Each week you learn a new move and improve your technique. Even if you think you are not fit, Urban kick is for you.  You will always work to your own level of fitness and improve as you go along.  So, go on, give it a try... It's about time you have some fun exercising !
So what exactly is prenatal fitness ?
Urban prenatal We all know now that exercising during pregnancy is excellent both for mum and baby.  It is difficult to assess, however, the exact do's and don'ts of prenatal exercise.  At Urban Energy, we take the guess work out of your hands and put together programmes that are specifically targeted for pregnant ladies.  Using light weights, low impact cardio exercises and safe stretches, we aim to help you maitain a healthy level of fitness.  Better labour, faster recovery, lower weight gain... Need we say more ?  We currently run a prenatal class on Sundays at 9am and hoping to put on a second weekly class very shortly.  We also offer one on one training.  Our instructors are pre and post natal qualified. Contact us for more information.

The Urban Experience
'I moved to Dubai and became a stay at home Mum. At 40ish I needed to exercise to keep my sanity. I wanted to start running as it's something you can do anywhere especially outdoors, costs the minimum and you can do it on your own too. Last year, I met Laurence and started to run with her, I couldn't run 2kms without thinking I was going to die. She motivated me, trained with me religiously and I am proud to say we ran the Std Chartered 10km race in Jan in under an hour and just completed the RAK Half Marathon. I love my running especially with the great ladies I have met.  I thoroughly recommend the running classes for absolute beginners because it can be so intimidating and it takes so much will power to do it on your own in the beginning. Today is a good day!"
