 Shimmering Sands Takes You Beyond Human

I’ve been part of Dubai’s newest all-female fitness programme Shimmering Sands Takes You Beyond Human (SSxBH), founded by lifestyle blogger Frankie Hales and fitness duo Michael and James, since it launched in June 2017 and I can’t recommend it enough. I’ve lost 4kg, put on I don’t know how much muscle, found out that carbs aren’t the enemy and made a whole new group of girl friends.

The training programme…
The 12 week programme, which starts again in Jan 2018, offers daily classes with 5.30am, 6.30am, 10am (a freelancers dream) and 7pm time slots during the week, plus an 8am pre-brunch blitz on Friday and 8am, 9am and 7pm on a Saturday. Each class is different and involves a strength component and a conditioning component – expect weights, squats, more burpees than I care to talk about and a little bit of puke in your mouth. The boys also set us weekly challenges, which can be anything from reaching a certain amount of steps a day to a cooking competition, to keep us on our feet

The nutrition plan…
I’m a real foodie. I love my carbs and a glass of vino (or two) in the evening, so I was completely reluctant about getting on a personalised nutrition plan. I was terrified of being told that I can kiss goodbye to bread, cheese and pinot noir, so I ignored the food plan for the first 10 weeks. Fast forward four months, I now know that bread is not the devil and wine can, in fact, be consumed during the week. We use a meal logging app, where all the SSxBH girls are encouraged to post every single thing they eat and drink during the day for Michael – a certified nutritionist – to leave feedback on if we need more protein, fats or carbs – yes, MORE carbs!

The community…
I don’t know about you, but I find most gyms to be really intimidating. And I’m not just talking about the plethora of machines that I don’t know about to use, but about the icy, unwelcoming and judgmental looks that I get shot. SSxBH not about that – at all. SSxBH’s ethos is all about women supporting women and female empowerment. It’s an all-girl group with no pretenses. At SSxBH we are inclusive, not exclusive.

The price…
Dhs2,250 for 12 weeks (can be paid Dhs750 per month)

Use the code SSxBHxMM when booking for 30% off your first month.
