Dear Urban enthusiast
Welcome to Edition 3 of our newsletter.  The month of March has been an exciting one with new classes launched and the arrival of Emily on the Urban Team. Our first Urban baby was born a couple of weeks ago and both mum & baby are doing superbly well.  We'd like to think that's thanks to us!  We are enjoying the last few days of temperate weather, allowing us to hold our classes outdoors.  We have plans for indoor classes covering both the Umm Suqueim Area and the Ranches / motorcity / Victory Heights areas and we will let you know in due course.  In the meantime, we think we still have a few weeks of outdoor life and we are set on enjoying it to the last minute!
Urban Prenatal, storkfit, Kick and Running are now in full bloom and we are looking forward to introducing Urban Boost to all of you... watch this space !

It is a great full body workout and guaranteed to boost your energy ! isn't that what we are all about?  Urban boost will run throughout the summer, initially outdoors in Arabian Ranches and in Umm Suqueim park but will move indoors as soon as the weather
is too hot.  Go on, Try it.. you won't regret it !

Emily's Nutrition corner
happy girl
I wish I had a dirham for every time I heard "I skipped breakfast". And if this is you, give me a moment and have a read.

If you finish dinner at 8pm and wake up at 6am (this may be way off for some of you but just go with it!) you have already spent 10 hours fasting (try doing that in the middle of the day and then skipping a meal!) The level of glucose in your blood, or your central nervous system's main energy supply, has dropped dramatically overnight and is in desperate need of replenishing...AKA breakfast!  Without fuel the brain will not function properly, affecting concentration, alertness, reaction time, mood and performance.  Furthermore, in order to conserve energy for the brain and other vital organs, your metabolic rate will slow down until the next meal (which is for some of you lunchtime, and by then you've gone almost 16 hours without eating!).  Eating breakfast will let the body know that it has incoming fuel to burn, and can therefore start working again efficiently. 
Keep this in mind when training, Team Urban, because without energy your body will struggle to adapt to any type of physical activity (no matter how hard you kick or how fast you run) because like anything else, it needs energy to work!

Now I understand some of the reasons behind the lack of breakfast, but as a trainer and as someone who wants to help you get the very best out of your day, PLEASE find a way (or email me and we can work out a solution!)  Give yourself a head start as soon as you roll out of bed, and kick start your brain, your metabolism, your training and your day with the breakfast boost!
Breakfast ideas with time on your side:
-          Muesli, fruit and yogurt
-          Poached eggs on wholegrain toast
-          Porridge with banana and honey
Breakfast in a mad rush (and coffee doesn't count):
-          Pot of yogurt and piece of fruit
-          Toasted bagel/bread (wholegrain) with honey
-          Oatcakes with peanut butter and fruit
It will soon be too hot ... so what's in stock ?  

Urban Running
As soon as the weather becomes too hot for running, Urban Running participants will be able to join the Urban boost class.

Urban Kick
We have arranged indoor locations serving both the Umm Suqeim and the Arabian Ranches / Motorcity / Victory Heights areas.

Urban Prenatal & Storkfit (Postnatal) 
It will soon be too warm outdoors for our mums to be and our little ones.  So it's indoors from the month of April onwards.  Check our website for new location and directions. 

Urban Boost
We will Launch Urban Boost on April 1st - Initially outdoors, we expect to go indoors towards the end of April but will keep an eye on the weather and move indoors earlier if necessary. Check on our website for more information.

So where are we going ?

We are finalising agreements in several locations but we have chosen carefully our venues to ensure cleanliness, convenience, parking availability, toilets and good air conditioning.  You won't be disappointed !

The Urban Experience
'I am addicted to Urban Kick classes! I Participated in my first class around 3 months ago and now attend on average two a week. Key highlights for me include the outdoor, beach-side location and evening timing - very important for an office-based working mum of 2. The workout is all encompassing - a little cardio, combined with a touch of toning, bundled together with a heap of stress-releasing round-house kicks, jabs, hooks and upper cut punches. I already see changes in my fitness and strength levels and look forward to taking it to the next level.'
