We caught up with Marianne, who has been a Pilates instructor at Pilates Academy Dubai, one of GuavaPass’ exclusive studios, for almost 3 years.
Pilates Academy is a modern dedicated center where pilates and cardiolates® are offered as a means to enhance physical wellness and health. The studio has a new and exclusive concept, not just thanks to the relaxing atmosphere of its suite on the 42nd floor, but mainly because of the quality of its training. Exercising at Pilates Academy does not only mean efficient workout on the best American dedicated equipment, but also learning a full new discipline and its principles, experiencing the tailored attention of a professional and qualified trainer, and walking out knowing how to take care of one’s own body.
Marianne is a perfect example of the high-quality instructors in Pilates Academy, especially when it comes to training one’s core, “I am a lover of anything even remotely core adjacent, and for better or for worse my clients and coworkers like to refer to me as the Core Guru,” she says.
But Marianne doesn’t only enjoy GuavaPass from the instructor’s perspective, she’s also a member, “In my free time, I like to read, usually a good 4 books at a time, spend time splashing around with my 18-month-old baby, and obviously exercise for myself. GuavaPass is great for me as an instructor as it also offers classes at off-peak hours,” she adds.
“My favorite places on the pass, apart from the one I work at, are Fairmont the Palm for Roland’s Aquaspin classes and Karma Yoga for their Swing Yin. Really soothing and rejuvenating,” says Marianne, both classes can be easily booked through the app.
To catch up with this amazing instructor in person, you just have to book a class at Pilates Academy or join their special challenge.
“I am excited to be inviting you all to join me for my next CoreFit challenge at the Academy on September, 28, at 10:30am. Water and snacks are available for you to fuel on. Ability to smile through 90 minutes of abdominal exercises is compulsory! Inability to sneeze without aching the next day in guaranteed!”
