Aya Fisher


Aya Fisher isn't a newbie to Dubai by any means (5 years and counting), so she thoroughly enjoys exploring the latest and greatest Dubai has to offer to keep things fresh. This includes everything from restaurants- eating is one of her favorite pastimes- to workouts. After tearing her ACL in a soccer-related accident, she had to turn to different forms of exercise for her fitness fix. And she decided to share her experiences in all their glory: the good, the bad and the awesome.

Fitness Review: Round 10 Boxing Club in Dubai

Fitness Review: Round 10 Boxing Club in Dubai

It’s a Monday, like any other Monday, and I’m looking for a workout. I’m feeling a bit bored with my typical classes and don’t feel like working out alone, so I’m on the hunt for a new class to try. That’s when it hit me: A friend had recommended a boxing class she had been […]

Hope Floats: Floatation Therapy In Dubai

Hope Floats: Floatation Therapy In Dubai

It’s been a bit of a rough patch for me lately, having injured my back, yet again. Luckily, it’s only a muscular issue, however I really do feel like I know what it’s like to be 85 years old and unable to stand up straight from back pain. And man, am I majorly appreciating my […]

Escaping Dubai with Marjan Nights at the DoubleTree

Escaping Dubai with Marjan Nights at the DoubleTree

Arriving to Ras Al Khaimah after a long day at work last Thursday, I was honestly half regretting deciding to leave Dubai when all I really wanted was my bed and peace and quiet. However, I significantly started to cheer up upon entering the arch demarcating the entrance to the DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & […]

Adventures in Sri Lanka: Yoga, Sun and Surf

Adventures in Sri Lanka: Yoga, Sun and Surf

    They say there is a first time for everything. I guess the real question is whether or not when it’s your turn, you jump at the chance to experience a new first. Or, as that which tends to be much more comfortable, you shrink back into your comfort zone- never knowing what exists […]

Reebok’s #BeMoreHuman Campaign Puts a New Twist on Fitness

Reebok’s #BeMoreHuman Campaign Puts a New Twist on Fitness

Reebok is a brand that I don’t think many people have heard much from for a while. It’s been a bit outdated and left in the dust, behind Nike and Adidas with their hip gear and even hipper advertising – that is, until now. Reebok is back with vengeance and making everyone take notice. Reebok […]

Cryosouna: Freeze Your Wrinkles Away

Cryosouna: Freeze Your Wrinkles Away

Honestly, the word “cold” does not even begin to accurately describe the way I felt while trying out the Cryo Clinic’s Health Experience. It all started with a three-minute session in the cryosauna, which looks like a stand-up tanning bed, but creates an environment of -140 degrees Celsius using liquid nitrogen. I am only minimally […]

New Year, New You

New Year, New You

With 2014 now gone, it’s important to take just a couple of minutes to reflect on the past year. Take some stock as to how far you have come, what goals you have achieved and what areas of life you still may need to devote some time and energy to moving forward. We can all […]

Why Flybarre Dubai Is My Newest Fitness Obsession

Why Flybarre Dubai Is My Newest Fitness Obsession

I remember the first time I ever walked into a Flywheel studio to check it out. I walked right into the spinning room and immediately felt at home. It looked quite cool and totally like something right down my fitness alley. With the tech pack attached to each bike, a whole competitive element is introduced […]

The Iyashi Dome (No, Not a Sushi Roll): Body Cleansing in Dubai

The Iyashi Dome (No, Not a Sushi Roll): Body Cleansing in Dubai

The Iyahsi Dome is based off of Suna Ryoho, a treatment well-known in Japan for eliminating toxins from the body. For several centuries, in the summer, the Japanese would bury themselves in the hot sand near the hot springs on the beach to eliminate toxins from their bodies. The heat from both the sun and […]

Out on the Open Desert Road in Dubai

Out on the Open Desert Road in Dubai

The weather in Dubai has just become amazing. It’s officially the drive-around-with-the-windows-down time of year, and after being cooped up indoors in AC for so many months, I’m looking for any excuse to be outdoors. So, when someone reminded me of the Al Qudra outdoor bike track, I decided to seriously book it as a […]
