Exercise is such an important part of our lives, so why do we have so few options in Dubai when it comes to workout gear? The founder of local, online workout wardrobe boutique, TheHotBoxKit.com, Hannah Swales, had exactly the same problem when she first moved to Dubai, which is why she decided to create a platform where the most stylish, on-trend and highest quality workout brands from around the world could be found on one website and easily delivered to women around the Gulf.
One of the brands that TheHotBoxKit.com stocks is Los Angeles brand, Onzie. This brand is 100% made in the USA and has a cult following globally. Made from free flow fabric technology that is ultra durable and breathable, this fast drying material keeps bodies cool, dry and super comfortable. The entire collection can also be used in salt water and chlorine environments.
Beyond Yoga is another gorgeous brand that the online boutique stocks. All pieces are crafted from luxuriously soft, durable wash and wear fabrics and the elastic-free waistbands prevent uncomfortable digging and won’t roll down or up the waist, which is perfect for women of all shapes and sizes, who are trying to make the most of their active lifestyles. TheHotBoxKit.com also stocks sustainable Teeki products, Prana’s eco-friendly yoga mats and much-loved Australian brand, Vie Activewear is the newest addition to site.
Please see below for a selection of our favorite pieces from each brand:

- No half measures, no excuses, its all about grabbing the bull by the horns and absolutely going for it!!
- Inspiring people to live their best lives possible. Being honest, kind and helpful to others along the way
- Let’s not stay small, let us all become big, shiny and bright
- We want the women of the world to look after themselves first so that from there they have the resources to be able to pass on their knowledge and passion for generations to come.
