12th August 2014

Abu Dhabi, 11th August, 2014: This month, Yas Marina, operated and managed by Camper & Nicholsons Marinas, situated on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, announces the second part of its redevelopment. Courtesy of Vogue Fitness, the NuYou Spa, Watercooled and Bounceback, Yas Marina will establish itself as not only an entertainment hub, but also as a holistic lifestyle and fitness destination with classes both onshore and offshore, providing something for everyone.

Vogue Fitness have now launched their fully functional outdoor training sessions and kick off the start of the season with adrenaline fuelled, functional fitness classes around the surroundings of Yas Marina. Vogue Fitness is offering a ‘First Session Free’ promotion enabling tourists and residents the opportunity to try out the sessions and amenities before signing onto a full membership. Unlimited monthly memberships and 10 session packages are priced at AED500 while classes on an individual basis cost AED60. Sessions last an hour and take place every day of the week at 6AM, 9AM and 6.45PM. Outdoor sessions are always different, great fun and will push you to your limits.

The Vogue Fitness indoor facility is well into the fit out and when complete in August, Vogue Fitness will be offering a range of services such as sports massages, corporate fitness packages, personal training, kid’s fitness, gym membership and a large variety of fitness classes. The most exciting addition to their services will be CrossFit Yas by Vogue Fitness with sessions due to start in late August and CrossFit specific memberships will be capped at 60 members.

In addition to the boot camp that promises a high intensity workout around the promenade, Watercooled, the UAE’s premier watersports operator, will also be offering an array of watersport activities such as wakeboarding, waterskiing, Zapcat thrill rides, Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) yoga, kayaking, as well as weekly waterski and SUP fitness classes.

With the completion of the watersports centre in October, Yas Marina and Watercooled will be offering Powerboating courses with RYA Powerboat Level 1& 2, a certified course in driving powerboats safely, as well as RYA Safety Boat.  Watercooled will also offer private tuition to people wanting lessons in powerboat driving on their own boats.

For those seeking something less petrol-fuelled, Watercooled will run a unique range of watersports clubs and classes at Yas Marina including: stand up paddle yoga, stand up paddle Pilates, stand up paddle endurance, ski school, as well as a Super Wake club. These classes and clubs will be available at a variety of times to suit the lifestyles of those living in and around Yas Marina.

Another newcomer to Yas Marina is Bounceback. Bounceback physiotherapy will provide Yas Island with a fully comprehensive physiotherapy and rehabilitation service. With qualified staff from the UK and Australia, the physiotherapists have extensive experience of working both in the UAE and internationally with individuals, teams and elite athletes. Bounceback therapists are trained to use a variety of treatment principles such as the McKenzie method, clinical Pilates and acupuncture,  that treat neck pain, sport injuries, and pre and post natal pains, to name a few. Onsite qualified “Titleist Performance Institute” trained physiotherapists are able to treat all golf related injuries and help improve swing mechanics.

The marina will also offer some great rest and relaxation opportunities with the introduction of NuYu, a rejuvenating spa, slimming and tanning centre that caters to every beauty need. From spray tans and body massages to facials, NuYu is the perfect spot for visitors and residents to indulge and the ideal retreat after a high impact water activity with Watercooled or an intense boot camp with Bounceback. NuYou also has a range slimming treatments, from body wraps and wellness classes to body composition, which can be tailor made to meet the needs of each and every client.

Cedric Le Rest, General Manager of Yas Marina, comments: “Since the reopening of the Marina in October 2013 with the additional restaurants, facilities and activities, Yas Marina has become a popular dining and entertainment destination, during the week and at the weekends. With this in mind, I am thrilled and very excited to announce the second phase, which is to position Yas Marina as a truly integrated lifestyle and fitness destination.”

The launch of the new fitness amenities after Summer comes at a time when getting into shape is at the forefront of the mind and ties in with many of the sporting occasions that are being hosted at the promenade. Recent successful events include Dragon Boat Race, the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam Stand Up Paddle Boarding World Championship Tour and in the pipeline is the hotly anticipated return of Splash@Yas Marina, which will that take place 17th October.
