“Proud Female Fitness” is the credo of Heimat by Waris Dirie. Meaning “home” in German, Heimat has teamed up with model Waris Diris to bring this brand new private fitness club to life in the former Dapper Museum dedicated to African art. Enough to highlight this link between art and sport dear to the top Somali who participated in the curation and the benevolent atmosphere of this space spread over 4 floors. Thanks to a monthly subscription system, women find themselves in this cocoon where the practice of sport is supervised by attentive coaches, more than 50 various group lessons (cardio, boxing, dance, fitness, etc.), three rooms with state-of-the-art equipment (including the Kinesis machine, one of the only two available in Paris) as well as a basement dedicated to relaxation with a jacuzzi and sauna area or even a protein smoothie bar (and cocktails for the end of the day). Most ? Scattered around the venue, works of art by African female artists are all for sale and the proceeds will go to the Waris Dirie Desert Flower Foundation which fights against excision.
