With our program we can make you run better, faster and for longer. You will be taught to use the basic Pilates principles during running by switching on the core, allowing the glutes to better activate giving more power to push off the ground. The exercises are specifically designed for runners as they focus on single leg load control, endurance and the synergy between your core, leg and upper body muscles.
Sign up for once or twice a week if you are very keen on improving. Classes run on a Sunday morning at 11:30am or for the early birds on a Tuesday at 7:15am. The course is run by Gillian, a podiatrist and Pilates instructor and Juliane a physiotherapist trained in Pilates.
It is 800AED once a week for 8 weeks + for each additional class a discounted 80AED.
