Get a head start on your summer slimming

fitnessWould you like to improve your health and get fitter this summer?  Sheraton Abu Dhabi Hotel and Resort has got a plan that will get you into shape and keep you motivated all summer long.  The city centre hotel is starting a new fitness program called “Fit for life” on the 1st of July 2015. “Fit for life” offers a two-month long gym membership combined with an exciting health challenge amongst all the participants – all for the cost of AED 999 net per person. When you join the program, you will receive 26 passes to the hotel’s modern gym as well as enter a competition to achieve the biggest reduction in your body fat percentage during this period.

“Fit for life is much more than just a summer gym membership.”- says Mohamed El Morshedy, manager of Sheraton Fitness. “We are creating a community of likeminded people who are keen to break their old habits and make a change to their life.” Offering a spacious setting, the hotel’s modern gym is equipped with a variety of weight machines and the latest TechnoGym cardio equipments. You can enjoy well-deserved downtime in the sauna, steam room and jacuzzi after your workout. On joining the program, one of the club’s trainers will create a personalised fitness program for you as well as record your key body measurements for the competition.

Luxury hotel breaks at Sheraton Abu Dhabi’s Starwood sister hotels as well as spa treats and dining gift vouchers are awaiting the top contestants. “We welcome people of all ages, body shapes and fitness levels. To make the competition fair, we will judge the result based on what percentage of your body fat was reduced during the two months. This is not about who can lose the most weight – it is about who made the greatest difference to their own body.” – explains Mohamed El Morshedy.

Fun and fitness go hand in hand as Sheraton Abu Dhabi also included a complimentary group class per week into the program. Adding an element of education, the hotel’s executive chef will conduct a group cookery demonstration on how to make a difference to your diet. “Last summer we organised a similar competition for our hotel team which was a huge success. With 38 participants we lost 62 kilos in total and reduced our body fat percentage by an average of almost 2% per person. Many of us continued the program and as a result we remain healthier and fitter one year on.” – adds Judith Pasztor Duffy, the hotel’s marketing director who also took part in the program last summer.
