our people, our community

tribe

Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” — Jane Howard

 

One of the most basic human needs is the need to belong, and to feel loved and accepted by others.  We all want to be a part of something bigger. We all want to experience a sense of community. To have a group of like-minded people that are on the same wavelength, and are on the same page supporting each other sharing ideas, interests and working in harmony — be it professional, or personal.

Your tribe members are those people who accept you just as you are, and who want the very best for you.  They make you feel understood, and they encourage you to go after your goals and pursue your dreams.  The members of your tribe also help you to get through difficult times, and provide you with a sense of community and support. Your tribe is made up of ‘your people.’

At the Hundred we know these ‘people’ and we have been blessed to have our own family/tribe grow slowly but surely over the years. And while many often think of slow growth as defective, we strongly disagree, because the truth is that all good things grow slow—dreams, fruit, businesses and relationships.

Gardeners sometimes like to plant trees labeled ‘fast growing’ for highly sought-after quick results. But here’s the thing —fast-growing trees don’t have deep enough roots to last through storms and droughts. Good things need time to take root and grow. A slower more organic pace will help your roots stretch deep and wide. Trust us it’s okay to grow slow. As a result of our organically paced growth, we have the most amazing tribe and community of  people who share common interests and values and show genuine appreciation and care for each other.

This Ramadan follow us on Instagram as we will share a little more about the heartbeat of The Hundred Wellness Center, our people, our tribe and family!


sweat yourself to health!

detox

We are so excited to announce that we finally have our infrared sauna up and running!  For months we have been working hard to bring you transformative infrared sauna services to The Hundred Wellness Centre. Unlike traditional saunas, which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, our infrared sauna is gentle, soothing and it’s therapeutic heat promotes relaxation, detoxification, improved sleep and so much more. Infrared sauna therapy helps you relax and relieves stress while you receive an invigorating deep tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed and rejuvenated after each session.

Whether we know it or not, we are exposed to heavy metals on an almost daily basis through pollution and as a matter of modern life, and left undisturbed, these heavy metals can cause illnesses. Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. Infrared saunas therapy induces a rise in core temperature that then results in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.  Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to help relieve anything from minor aches and pains, to even more chronic pain conditions. Athletes also benefit from this therapy as it can help speed up recovery time post training, as well as decrease muscle spasms.

As with all of the services and treatments you will find at the centre, we strive to bring our clients the best of what is in the wellness world to help you meet all your health and wellness goals. So, in addition to pairing the infrared sauna therapy with our in-house detox program (highly recommended), we are also offering individual sessions, as well as packages.

ramadan (re)boot camp

ramadan

Ramadan shouldn’t be an excuse to abandon your fitness regimen. Whether you are a seasoned fitness enthusiast or have just recently started classes with us, fasting during Ramadan does not need to be the end of your exercise regimen until after Eid!

We want to help you prepare your body for Ramadan and keep your motivation up throughout the entire month! So we have tailor-made a month-long  program of diverse group fitness classes ( you could say our own version of the mainstream “Bootcamps”), with the purpose of promoting the sustainable practice of physical activities during the month of Ramadan and beyond. This program is fun, accessible and fasting-friendly. Join us to prepare your body to stay active while fasting in a safe and supportive environment.

– Four Body Weight classes (Moderate Intensity & Muscle sculpting)
– Four Pilates classes (Stretch & Recovery)
– BCA test (body composition analysis) at the end of the program to track progress

the art of wellness

art hundred

Gym, pilates studio, cafe, art space – all these words have been used to describe our favourite spot in all of Dubai –  The Hundred Wellness Centre. With so many wellness services on offer here, it was important that the space itself reflects The Hundred Wellness Centre lifestyle, and anyone that knows our founder Asma Lootah, knows that this centre brings together two of her passions – fitness and art. On the heels of Art Dubai last week we wanted to turn the spotlight on to our centre, and some of the curated design and art pieces you will see when you visit.  The Hundred Wellness Centre is a hybrid concept born from the perfect union between the love for art & design, and a fully functional fitness center. Tucked inside a peaceful villa in the heart of Jumeirah, every little design and decor detail has been thought out, from the chairs in the waiting areas, to the coasters that you rest your teacup on.. The Hundred is definitely not your average fitness studio. The team here practice a holistic approach to wellness, which means they focus on how the three main areas of your life body, mind and soul –  are connected and how they can be optimized to improve your overall sense of well-being. The Hundred has been painstakingly curated to truly help our clients feel at home – and at peace, while celebrating amazing UAE local talents, and the mere fact that a person can get all of these services within a functional art-centric space is truly unique. Each and every piece of art at The Hundred Wellness Centre has a purpose and a story behind it‘s journey to finally finding its home here, and you can read more on the tales of some of the pieces that are dotted around the space by visiting our website, or the next time you visit just ask one of our team!


Warning: This will change your life | DNA testing at The Hundred Wellness Centre Dubai

Here at The Hundred Wellness Centre we offer a variety of services to help you on your path to optimum wellbeing. Including classical Pilates, Super Circuit classes, physiotherapy, yoga – but did you know that we also offer some of the very best, bespoke wellness diagnostic tests that are at the forefront of technology right now? DNA testing is without a doubt one of the most powerful tools we use…

So what’s it all about? Well if you are thinking “I’ve done allergy tests” or “My GP did my blood work” – think again… DNA testing is in another league. And here’s why: Your DNA results will never ever change. DNA testing maps out your genetic code. Which never, ever changes. So you only have to do the DNA test once.

DNA testing at the hundred wellness centre

And why is it so crucial? Well, when your parents “made” you, they each gave you some of their DNA. Your DNA is completely unique to theirs. You have some from your father and some from your mother. Sure, if your parents have a certain health problem it could be possible that you are more at risk for those concerns. But that’s not a definite. You could be completely clear of their issues and actually have a medium/high risk for something completely different…

But let’s be frank here: DNA testing is not scary. It’s not something you need to dread or fob off with “well if it’s going to happen, I’d rather not know…” The tests simply highlight your genetic code and explain whether those unique combinations are benefitting your health or if they run the risk of harming it. We offer four different, unique DNA tests: health, sport, estrogen, and diet. Over the next few weeks we will be highlighting these through our resident, in-house expert, homeopathic Doctor, Dr. Sean and Holly Hollywould – the Dubai-based creative and lifestyle blogger who will be sharing her journey through DNA testing at The Hundred Wellness Centre in Dubai via a series of diaries…

…Stay tuned!

And if you’re already intrigued and want to talk to us about having your own DNA tests done, give us a call on 04 344 7333 or drop us an email here.
