IF YOU’VE GOT SEVEN DAYS
Slim down and shape up at the Ultimate Wellness Retreat at The Address Dubai Mall. From nutritional courses to express workouts, the PTX team will show you how to go from couch potato to clean-living queen. A typical day starts with a sunrise yoga session, followed by a calorie-burning TRX class and a little me-time before you enjoy lunch at the Cabana restaurant. In the afternoon you can take part in an aqua fit class before the sun goes down. You’ll almost certainly lose inches and build muscle, plus you leave feeling as if you’re walking on a cloud. See www.ptxretreats.com. Starting from Dhs8,055.
