|It's Running Season|
Running is the cheapest kind of sporting activity, It's suitable for everyone and there's not limit to how much you can improve.
And the Dubai Running season has just started.... Our running classes are buzzing, we are offering training for beginners and Intermediates alike and have an great group of runners together !
We, at Urban Energy, are fully behind the 5km and 10km women's run taking place on the 11th November, on the Palm. This is a great event, dedicated to women and encouraging everyone, regardless of your level ! A great route, great organisation and it's not too late to start training if you are new to the sport.
so, if you haven't done so, Register yourself and put your trainers on... We also have a limited number of free entries for our exisiting customers so speak to your instructor to get yourself on the Urban Energy team.
There is no better feeling in the world than crossing that finish line... trust us !
|Urban Boost light |
|This month, we are relaunching Urban Boost light, which was on hold after the summer. |
If you are coming back from injury, a little self conscious, not ready for a more intense class and bootcamp is definitely not for you, then Boost light is the right fit ! A circuit class specifically designed to start you gently, and get you ready for the more intense Boost and Kick classes... no pressure, no injuries, just plain good old fitness for regular gals !
We are waiting to get a minimum of 10 people together to start it so please send us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested !
|Issue: # 21 || September 2011|
|Dear Urban Enthusiast, |
September has been so busy, it's taken us a while to put this newsletter together.. apologies for the delay but the priority was to get all of you back into your fitness regime ! And back you are ! Evening classes are buzzing, personal training is at full capacity and we have welcomed a lot of new pregnant bellies to our classes !
Our WW92 challenge is now over, and we congratulate the Dubai92 team on winning this year's edition of the challenge ! Both team did amazingly well but in the end, the commitment and hard work of the Dubai 92 team has paid off ! Well done everyone !
Our running club is going from strength to strength and most of our runners are now aiming for either the 5km women's run, the 10k standard chartered or the Half Marathons in December and February... great to see so many people putting their trainers on and hit the pavement !
We look forward to an equally busy month of October and can't wait to see you all at our classes !
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY!
Sincerely, Laurence & Amy

|Whale or Mermaid ? |
|A friend of mine posted this great little story on facebook and I wanted to share that with you! |
"A while back, at the entrance of a gym, there was a picture of a very thin and beautiful woman. The caption was "This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?"
The story goes, a woman (of clothing size unknown) answered the following way:
"Dear people, whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, seals, curious humans), they are sexually active and raise their children with great tenderness.
They entertain like crazy with dolphins and eat lots of prawns. They swim all day and travel to fantastic places like Patagonia, the Barents Sea or the coral reefs of Polynesia.
They sing incredibly well and sometimes even are on cds. They are impressive and dearly loved animals, which everyone defend and admires.
Mermaids do not exist.
But if they existed, they would line up to see a psychologist because of a problem of split personality: woman or fish?
They would have no sex life and could not bear children.
Yes, they would be lovely, but lonely and sad.
And, who wants a girl that smells like fish by his side?
Without a doubt, I'd rather be a whale.
|Pizza, Friend or Foe ?|
The short answer to that is, more often than not, Foe ! Greasy crusts, Dubious amounts of cheese and toppings that are full of fat and possibly not the highest quality.. One exception to that is N_K_D pizza.
- Dough, sauce and cheese contain no additives, preservatives, colorants or weird chemicals of any kind.
- They have reduced calories with a multi-grain dough mix, with no added sugar or butter to the dough or sauce. The cheese is a great tasting skim milk mozzarella.
- Prebiotics: Called an invisible super fiber, prebiotics improve your balance of healthy probiotic bacteria for improved immunity.
- Multi-Grain: Our diverse blend of ancestral grain and seeds (more than 10) and selected for maximum nutrients and taste.
- The mixture of multi-grain flours and numerous whole grains boost the levels of important plant proteins. Increasing levels of protein help the body achieve optimal performance and help reduce hunger.
Foods that produce a GI of less or equal to 55 are classified as being low GI. N_K_D pizza's hand-�stretched cheese pizza GI came in at 48 - making it a low GI food!
We think they taste great, and when you feel like a little treat, they are the best around ... Go On, treat yourself once in a while !
