The UAE’s first women’s only collaborative ‘workout and work-in’ pop-up is here in ROAR by #PUMAWomen, giving ladies their own space to celebrate fitness and a healthy lifestyle.

Located on the ground floor of Building 6 in Dubai Design District, ROAR by #PUMAWomen is a physical activation of the #PUMAWomen campaign in the Middle East, led by global ambassadors like Rihanna, Cara Delevingne and Kylie Jenner.

It may sound like simply a gym, but ROAR is designed to be an all-encompassing community centre, offering a programme of workouts, drink and dining options, as well as lunchtime beauty services. There’s something for every women to enjoy in this comfortable setting.

Every Monday and Wednesday evening, in addition to weekends, ROAR will host workouts and through GuavaPass, visitors will be able to experience everything from hip hop yoga to rave aerobics.

The new and innovative workouts will give ladies the opportunity to get their hearts racing and pulse rising, whether individually or with a group of friends, co-workers or family.

Begin your routine with ‘Kick Start Your Week’ on Mondays, featuring workouts at 17:30 and 19:00. Follow that up with ‘Sweatworking’ on Wednesdays with 17:30 and 19:00 workouts, along with post-workout sweatworking sessions.

Don’t let the weekends keep you from maintaining your fitness, with ROAR offering ‘The PUMA Breakfast Club’ at 09:00 on Friday, which will be followed by workshops and food to refuel. The post-workout brunch, which you can show up to in sweats, brings a relaxed and social vibe to make it a worthwhile morning of fun. The workshops, meanwhile, will have the latest creative brands from across the region and offer experiences like ‘Raw Cooking’ on April 14 and ‘Moss & Myrtle’ on April 21.

Cap it all off with ‘Wash the Weekend Away’ on Saturdays at 16:00 with a workout that will both end the week in strong fashion, while resetting you for another week of workouts.

Whether before or after your workout, grab a bite to eat with fresh food that will have women looking and feeling good throughout the day.
