PRLog - Jun. 17, 2014 - MANAMA, Bahrain -- Manama, JUNE 17, 2014: The Dream Body Centre (DBC) today announced that it was taking serious measures to tackle the growing obesity issue in Bahrain.

The recent study, published by The Lancet, has shown that the Kingdom of Bahrain is amongst the top countries with the highest increase in obesity from 1980 to 2013, in both males and females.

To help tackle this issue, the DreamBody Centre (DBC), a 23-minute weight loss and fitness centre, has recently launched a new dance class named “Raqs23!”  The class, which is the first of its kind in the world and developed locally by the DBC, utilizes high and low impact exercises to give participants’ an intense total body workout.  DBC has launched the class as part of its on-going efforts to promote well-being and a healthy lifestyle in the Kingdom.

Commenting on the new class, DBC founder Suhail Algosaibi said, “With 2.1 billion people overweight or obese worldwide, there is now a greater urgency to tackle this problem more than ever. Raqs, which means dance in Arabic, will not only improve fitness levels amongst participants, thus assisting weight loss, but will also help release stress and improve overall well-being.”

The classes are available twice a week exclusively at the DreamBody Centre, which is located at the Bahrain Mall in Sanabis.  The centre was established in 2007, and plans are underway to franchise in the Middle East and Asia.  For more information visit www.DreamBodyCentre.com  or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZoSUGsLRCM.
