"The PAD - Pilates & dance studio is the BEST in town. It was my first ever pilates experience when i came in THE PAD but since than i am a regular here. The energy, vibe, instructors, ambience like everything is just perfect about this place. If you looking for a great and fun place to workout with the amazing instructors who will not just help you in achieving your goal but also make sure about your correct postures, your pains etc. Also, my daughter loves the dance class there - some amazing instructors who knows how to handle a kid while teaching the best of dance. Great work Shaazia & Abbas , amazing studio. "
“My wife and I really liked The Pad, because it is “small” (in the most positive of senses) and personal in a sense very unlike Dubai as a whole. Having no prior experience with Pilates at all, here we are getting the right instructions, but also the right push, to get it done and it feels great ( once the muscle aches are gone that is…. ). So, if you are looking for an anonymous, big city studio, The Pad is not your place. If however you are looking for a place, where doing Pilates feels like exercising with friends, consider The Pad and you will not be disappointed.”
"Had an incredible experience at the pad. This being my first experience at Pilates, Shaazia was hands on making sure that all movements are controlled. The continuous guidance helps newbies like me. Iv done my fair share of physical training at CrossFit boxes and gyms, but the Pilates session really helps these moves and form since it’s controlled and supported using “the reformer”. Feel lighter and refreshed after the session even though it breaks you into a decent sweat and tugs at ancillary muscles. The vibe is incredible, her energy infectious and the over all community amazing. Would highly recommend the group classes to anyone dealing with injuries, looking for a good workout without the high intensity and a perfect complimenting exercise routine apart from your typical gyms and boxes. Thank you Shazia , Abbas and team. "
"The Pad is my happy fitness space. I started pilates in NOV 2018 and have never looked back ever since. My posture and my fitness has gone up to the next level thanks to the PAD. The icing on the cake is Bollywood and bhangra power cardio classes which gets me my dose of cardio. These are lot of fun. The combination of pilates and dance together has helped me shed 8 kgs in 4 months in an absolute fun way. This is a gem of a place in the greens and I would recommend anyone and every one to try it out. #realmendopilates. Thank youThe Pad is my happy fitness space.

“Dubai is filled with amazing studios/ gyms/ personal trainers etc and it is everyone’s personal choice to pick any place to work out based on their convenience, trainer preferences and workout plans. These were my personal targets: Improve my body strength and not just lose weight, Get back to healthier lifestyle and focus on core strength while training the body as an integrated whole. I stumbled upon this studio - THEpAd (Yasmin Karachiwala’s Pilates and Dance Studio) located in Greens by chance and went in for 1 trial class. Because I had no idea what and how pilates works!!! I was just #MEH but then what brought me back and why am I reviewing it? Studio: 10/10 – The interior is pretty slick and has positive vibes to it altogether. The way they played with the colors are so inviting and fresh. Customer Relation: 10/10 – If you have not yet met the receptionist, you are missing out on some warm welcome and the upbeat energy that gives you the jive to smile and laugh whenever you are there Trainer: 10/10 - The simple gestures, engagement with all the clients in the 1st class and the way she explained each step as the class went on was pretty impressive. Correct posture is what they preach and practice! Now after gazillion amount of classes, with combination of mat pilates, equipment pilates, private pilates, kick boxing, dance! (yeah even danced when I can hardly remember steps) ;D. I can only say few things, I am grateful : to have met amazing trainers in this studio who not only assisted me with maintaining my workout activities but most importantly helped me with managing my degenerative disc issues and I can say my chiropractor was impressed with the much better flexibility I had in my movement. I am happy : with the cozy warm studio that invites you in with the biggest bright welcome EVERYTIME. I am impressed : with the value I am getting back on the cost I pay for these classes. If you know what total cost of ownership means, then I will say you will get the most here. ”
"I've only ever done pilates at The Pad. I am really glad I started out here, they put at ease as a beginner and upped the intensity as I progressed. The crew at The Pad as always super helpful and the instructors know their stuff. I always enjoy a session here. :) Keep up the awesome work guys. "
"This studio is my happy place! Its always clean and fresh, has a great atmosphere, a lot of natural light (which is so important) and needless to say the best instructors. After trying few fitness studios in Dubai I’m never moving from The Pad ❤️"

I am a very lazy person but with the sessions they have , i started to love working out. Its more of having fun for me . So if you are looking for funpacked workout classes or sessions, The Pad is the right place for you. I love the staff , the members and everything about this fitness center ❤💕”
"Im doing pilates workout with Rochelle and Rupesh because i feel very comfortable with them. You should try bollywood dance with abbas and shekhar &tenisha, its a very fun class. You will enjoy it 👍 i love the pad 😍❤️ "
"I highly recommend Pilates to everyone, any age, and any fitness level. Unlike other exercise regimes, Pilates has strengthened and toned my entire body and gave me great flexibility to balance out my gym routine. My posture is better, my core is stronger and I have flexibility that I didn't think was possible. I go as often as I can and look forward to each class with all their talented instructors. Abbas and Shaazia give The PAD the extra personal touch that makes it a notch above all other Pilates Studios. And the combination of Dance with Pilates just works perfectly! My advice to anyone considering Pilates is try The PAD! Finally… breathe! It really does help get you through the hard parts. I find this works in life as well."
"I had an amazing experience at The Pad. I am someone who gets bored from a workout very easily! But the sessions at the Pad were fun and different every time. It really helped me to develop core strength and gave me an all-round workout. The team is also super fun with high energy and make you feel welcome and part of the group. For someone who doesn’t know what form of exercise works for you, I strongly recommend you give this a shot. Thank you to Shaazia, Abbas and the whole team at The Pad for such an incredible experience."
"Six years ago, I became a cancer survivor who was told by a physiotherapist that I wouldn't walk normally again. I took that as a challenge and today with the help of @thepad and @shaaziaq I have not only been able to walk but also jog. I had extensive nerve damage on my left leg and Shaazia had helped me reawaken my once thought of dead nerves. I'm so grateful to have her be my guide in this journey."
