You won’t find people making sandcastles inside Dune Citi’s 38-ton sand pit; rather, you’ll find athletes running on the unstable surface to strengthen muscles in their legs. This sort of intense athletic training prevails throughout Dune Citi, including in the workout area, on the basketball and volleyball courts, and alongside the ghost of Roy Hobbs in the batting cages. For more structured exercise, Dune also schedules fitness classes such as Zumba’s latin-inspired dances, yoga’s meditative poses, and CrossFit’s daily workouts.
