Fitness First, one of the world’s leading health and fitness brands, today announced the opening of a slick new men’s only and ladies’ only club in Sahara Centre, Sharjah. The new facility showcases the brand’s innovative new direction and mark’s Fitness First’s fifth new-look club concept, following successful gym openings in Dubai, including Marina Gate, The Meadows, the Palm Jumeirah club at Nakheel Mall and Dubai Festival City Mall.
Spearheading brand-new and improved concepts, the stunning new club offers over 2,070 sq/m of training space and is centered around Fitness First’s hugely popular workout concepts: SPIN, Hot Studio and GX Studio, along with dynamic strength, cardio and freestyle areas and state-of-the-art equipment to take workouts to the next level.
The latest facility is set to shake up the daily workout routine with immersive indoor cycling experiences which draw on data visualisation technology and online gaming; a Hot Studio, powered by an ingenious infrared heating system that warms the body directly rather than heating the air, and a modern GX Studio with over 200 weekly innovative and exciting workout sessions to choose from.
Get ready to discover Fitness First’s, Sahara Centre Club’s innovative and specialist workout concepts, guaranteed to put your body to the test.
Not even the pro peloton can match Fitness First’s state-of-the-art spin studio for the latest cycling tech. SPIN features the unique Myride indoor cycling programme that gives users a truly immersive riding experience. Connectivity is achieved through the ICG® Connect platform. The digital software delivers data-visualisation to engage riders by tracking group performance, providing team battles and rewarding group leaders, while also celebrating personal achievements. Individual bike computers connect to the instructor’s tablet and are beamed onto a large display that mirrors performance metrics. Following instructions is simple thanks to a flawless user interface and eye-catching animations.
Delivering all the benefits of traditional Mind & Body classes but in a hot environment, the Hot Studio helps to reduce warm-up time and delivers workouts with extra intensity. The studio is powered by an ingenious infrared heating system that warms the body directly rather than heating the air. The result – a feeling like the natural warmth of sunlight rather than the stuffy hot air found in conventionally heated studios. A range of ‘hot’ classes including Hot Power Vinyasa, Yoga with weights and restorative Yoga strengthens the cardiovascular system by increasing heart rate while eliminating toxins.
The studio also offers an outstanding immersive experience with the use of a visual wall showcasing picturesque, in-motion backdrops that blend with the music and sounds, stimulating all the senses and providing an all-round meditative experience.
Offering a wide range of innovative and exciting classes, including Fitness First’s exclusive TUFF class, Swing Yoga, Jump, Piloxing, Zumba and the brand’s signature Fusion class, plus a popular variety of Les Mills programmes. The studio has been designed with a unique lighting experience that creates an atmosphere designed to inspire and energize.
Members of the new club will also experience renowned first-class facilities, including a fully equipped gym floor with four zones including cardio, freestyle, free weights, and strength, all under the watchful eye of internationally accredited fitness professionals, who are also on hand to design workout plans to suit individual capabilities and fitness goals. Not to mention luxurious changing facilities, infrared sauna offering the ultimate relaxation post workout, and a ladies members’ lounge for guests to relax and unwind.
The club will also feature MYZONE to help track workout efforts in real time, as well as Fitness First’s ‘Good Vibes’ app – a member-exclusive lifestyle rewards programme that offers unlimited access to exciting discounts from over 900 brands.
