Formé

Probably the most aesthetically pleasing Pilates studio in Riyadh, female-founded Formé lays on ‘Yogalates’ and private classes at its calming Ar Rabi HQ, alongside a host of reformer-based sessions. When you’re ready to up the intensity level, try one of its Tower Power or Hardcore 75 workouts. Members also get access to a video library for on-demand sessions wherever they might be.

From high-impact spinning to low-impact reformer Pilates, there’s a class to suit every moment at this studio in Al Malqa. However intense the session, a sense of calm prevails at The Pac, ensuring that visits are as good for the mind as the body.

9Round

The maths is pretty simple at this kickboxing destination. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, you’ll be doing nine three-minute ‘rounds’ of kickboxing in the space of just 30 minutes total. The intensity is key, ensuring every session is a full-body workout – and a serious stress reliever.

Stance

It’s easy to see the appeal of putting a Pilates studio and spa under one roof. Stance offers mat and reformer Pilates classes, as well as barre sessions. Classes sizes are kept small, though you can always request a one-on-one. The spa offers massages and facials, including a signature massage that combines hot stone and Swedish techniques. Facials use Elemis products.

Interval Plus

Riyadh’s first official CrossFit affiliate has been on the scene for almost a decade now. It continues to move with the times, laying on intense 60-minute workouts at venues in Takhassusi, Ar Rabi and Khurais.

Kinetico

This dance studio embraces classical exercise and modern movement. Yoga, Pilates and PT sessions are all offered in an attractive space, with Dyson hairdryers and Aesop products adding a layer of luxe to the overall experience. Morning classes can be hard to find in Riyadh, but Kinetico has them in abundance – we particularly rate the ‘Better than Coffee’ yoga class first thing.
