Top 5 Gyms of Dubai

Wake up with determination, go to sleep with satisfaction.

With Dubai’s chaotic and high stress work life, 24 hours 7 days a week long working hours and the constant demand to meet strict deadlines, a large percentage of the younger generation alongside the older generation too, is facing an uphill battle to stay fit and healthy. As government initiatives, fitness campaigns and sports group are actively raising awareness on the importance of a balanced lifestyle to stay fit, there has been a surge in the number of fitness centers and health clubs across Dubai.

Besides we all know exciting oneself to exercise is far from easy, and inevitably, we find legitimate reasons to be the couch potato, especially after a long and tiring day at work.

That said, I personally know that paying substantial sums of money for a gym membership can be a strong motivator, and once exercise naturally becomes part of your daily routine, it will probably become a habit you enjoy doing and won’t ever want to quit.

In keeping with UAE’s cultural sensitivities, many fitness centers have also introduced women’s only clubs and classes to encourage more women to start working out. Health experts in the UAE advise that women in this part of the world are often daunted by the prospect of working out in a mixed-gender gym.

Dubai has several gyms, fitness facilities and health clubs or varying sizes that offer a multitude of facilities for their members. From small local neighborhood gyms that focus on body building to large gym franchises such as Fitness First, that offer many classes, people living in the emirate are spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting a health and wellness facility.
