Attention women: an indoor heated pool just for you
The summer months may be over but in Dubai's sweltering climate, you could always do with a refreshing dip in the pool. Dubai Women's College's Fitness Centre provides access to a 25 meter pool where you can splash about, take a leisurely swim or train in the comfort of an indoor pool.
Beginners getting accustomed to the water and learning at their own pace needn't worry. You're in good hands under the watchful eye of DWC's trained lifeguard who has had two years of experience in Japan before testing the waters in Dubai.
Need to get in some exercise but your joints can't take the brunt? Sign up for the energetic aqua aerobics that will give you cardiovascular and strength training at zero impact to your joints. The pool facility provides good quality floating aids including training fins and foam noodles that can help you get used to the water. If you've teamed up with friends for a fun day at the pool, you may compete with each other in different strokes, play water ball games or dive and fetch rings from the bottom of the pool.
Women only pools are plenty in this part of the world, but this particular indoor pool proves to be a popular spot because of convenience of location and precedence given to privacy. The college hours make the pool a crowd puller, so if you're looking for a quieter time, visit in the late afternoons or early evenings. Take a break from working up a sweat and cool down at a bargain of AED 250 subscription per month. You may even avail of the pool along with the gym for AED 50 a day if you do not intend to be regular or are planning a one-off day with family or friends.
