Keep on rolling: BOUNCE has been part of the Dubai fitness scene for 18 months.

Early morning raves are a huge hit in progressive cities like London, New York, Barcelona, Melbourne and Amsterdam, all of whom join dozens others in regularly hosting Morning Gloryville events set to live DJs and offering sober pre-office fun and fitness.

Think about it, what better way to ‘seize the day’ in your business suit than with a little “6am happy” first in a bright lycra one (if that’s your thing…)?

These breakfast parties gaining huge popularity, it was only a matter of time before Dubai started organising its own spin-offs, such as this weekend’s ‘Daybreaker’ rave hosted by BOUNCE Middle East.

While not taking place bright and early on a work day, this Saturday’s debut rave is a fantastic way to recover from Friday night and continue to make the most of your weekend feeling fighting fit.

Take the UAE’s favourite trampoline universe, Dubai’s non-stop party animals, mix it up with awesome live beats and you’ve got yourself the recipe to start your day on the biggest high imaginable. BOUNCE’s quirky Al Quoz venue will be transformed into the ultimate club land (strobe lights and all) at sunrise to give even those that value a lie-in the best reason to dive out of bed on a Saturday.

More BOUNCE to the ounce: Al Quoz comes alive during the raves.

Staff have put together a super-charged exercise regime that will kick off from 07:00 onwards. It includes 15-minute rotations of various workouts to keep your energy pumping, fat burning and your muscles working; including Body Postures, Cardio Blast, Boxercise and Zumba on the dance floor.

You won’t need coffee when you’re in the company of award-winning BOUNCE Fit trainer, Edigar Scott – who last year won ‘Group Exercise Instructor of the Year’ at the 2015 FitAwards – and he will be leading activities, which also include Wallrunning and Trampolining tutorials for any total beginners.

You can also try your hand at BOUNCE’s popular full body-toning class BOUNCE Fit – a 60-minute smile-inducing workout illustrating all the hidden benefits of free jumping. Indeed, even NASA agrees, rebound exercise to be one of the most efficient low-impact, high-intensity cardio workouts yet known to man.

Suitable for all ages, with joints being looked after thanks to the trampoline springs, during trampolining and BOUNCE Fit you can expect to improve all-over muscle tone, burn tons of calories at an extreme rate and bulletproof your core.

As a result of the increased G-force felt when exercising on a trampoline too, your cells become stronger and this sort of exercise helps boost the activity of immune cells, keeping the body’s natural defences high, and reducing the chance of getting sick.

Regular use of the springs is said to also improve posture. Combating depression, anxiety and stress as well, you’re also simply having an awesome time reconnecting with your inner energetic child. It’s
addictive stuff that feels far from exercise.

As for the usual BOUNCE fanatics, added “exertainment” at this Saturday’s Daybreaker will come in the form of rebound games and activities, including a crazy trampoline-incorporating take on Dodgeball.

Then, of course there’s the opportunity to just join the DJ and dance your way into the rest of the day. Music is going to be provided by Abs live on the decks blasting the biggest dance tunes around to keep you electrified and adrenaline-charged.

If you’d rather start the day on a more sober high, or come down from all the adrenaline-pumping jumping, they will also be running mini yoga sessions on the morning.

On top of that, naturally breakfast is part of the deal with healthy snacks, fruit pots, energy bars and refreshments all available at the Tuckshop at extra cost.

BOUNCE is a product out of Australia but has been gaining huge traction all over the world in the past decade, and Dubai got their first venue off the continent in the Summer of 2014, now with an award-winning status. Since then, they’ve opened branches in South Africa, Portugal, Hong Kong and Sweden as well.

Abu Dhabi fans don’t have to wait much longer for these events to hit the capital too, with plans already in motion to open a mega-venue in the capital at Marina Mall.

That said, you won’t be let down if you rise early and make the trek over this weekend. Grab your mates and your brightest fitness gear, and take advantage of an early burn, and a break from the fitness norm. Very limited tickets are available though, so jump to it.
