Don’t let go of your health this summer. We know it’s too hot to go out sometimes, and that doesn’t do much for the body’s desire to stay active, but we also know you’re tougher than that and won’t compromise your fitness goals because of a little heat!
This all-inclusive yoga studio offers a variety of classes suitable for people at different yoga and fitness levels. Follow them on Instagram @aliveyoga to find out about how to book a class!

If you feel that your summer belly is catching up with you, then look no further than Jon P Fitness. Aptly named “Stop Crying Studios”, Coach Jon is the life hack you need to get your fitness in order. With classes ranging from boxing, cardio and functional weights, this strangely addictive group class setting will leave you feeling partially dead, but ultimately accomplished. Follow him on Instagram @jonpfitness for more information.
While there are a slew of Zumba offerings around Kuwait, (and you could find most of them at private beach clubs and hotels,) our personal favorite class to attend is Zaina’s. At Zaina’s Zumba class, you’re joining a community of likeminded people who just want to dance their way to healthy! Moreover, most of Zaina’s regular classes are female-only, but she also hosts a once a week mixed class, and a functional HIIT class called “Strong” where it’s abwork and squats galore. The package pricing isn’t bank-breaking either! Follow her on Instagram @zainaghabra to start, then put your dancing shoes on.
This might have to wait till September, but it’s become one of our favorite activities, it’s a great way to enjoy the outdoors, and it’s such a sneakily good workout. All you need to do to get on one of Kuwait’s Pilot Gig Club’s boats is to contact them according to their Instagram account (@kwt_pilot_gig), and then Coxwain Hamid Qabazard will take it from there!
The biggest myth about Kuwait is that there are no places to walk around in. This is extremely untrue! We won’t pretend that it isn’t trickier in the summer, but if you wait till the evening time, our favorite outdoor walkways are: Mishref Mamsha, Marina Walk, Shaheed Park and The Boulevard. Too hot outside? We don’t blame you – just lace up your trainers and hit the freezing cold malls for some mall walking! The never-ending stretch of The Avenues and the vast grounds of 360 MALL are the ideal venues for this activity.
If the above isn’t tickling your fancy, then get on your phone! Project 5 Miles (or P5M) has revamped itself to an app! Download the app on both Google Play and the App Store to make your fitness bookings easier, and get access to most of the above, and plenty others too. Check out more details on Instagram @p5m_app.
