The main training venue will be the brand new Michael Johnson Performance Center (mjpdubai.com). The huge complex offers all new equipment and an indoor 120m four-lane running track.
We will also train at one of the worlds only Crossfit beach gyms. (Yes, training outdoors on the beach with proper equipment - unbelievable, but true).
The training sessions are set to each morning from 9 to 11 AM from Monday the 28th of October to Friday the 1st of November. We recommend flying directly from Frankfurt with Emirates. Current rates for a round trip is around EUR 550-600. There is a boat hotel (qe2.com) next to the performance center with nightly rates for a two person room starting at EUR 115. Travel and accomodation should be handled independently.
The coached training sessions are based on the Explosive Mode principles, but we will also allow individual training. It is a great opportunity for you that would like to have an active holiday and still have time to enjoy the destination. The setup works well even for families as the training only takes place in the morning. On the fourth day we will visit the beach gym at night. All sessions are optional.
Day 1: Sprint Technique, Agility and Re-activity
Day 2: Olympic lifts, Upper Body Strength and Explosive Power
Day 3: Plyometrics, Lower Body Strength and Explosive Power
Day 4: Core Session and Active Recovery + extra outdoor session at 8 PM at the Warehouse beach gym (entrance 105AED. located at the Beach Mall, JBR).
Day 5: Full Body Explosive Mode Workout
We recommend that you use indoor sneakers that you feel comfortable in jumping in. Spike shoes can be used on the first day and weightlifting shoes can be used on the second day. The high-end venue has all thinkable amenities.
