If you haven’t managed to stick to your gym goals there's still some time to level up before high season hits. This is a list of the top five fitness clubs in no particular order that you should have a look at if you're based in Dubai.
The Matcha Club
Since Wim Hof introduced different forms of cold therapy, everyone from Russell Brand to Joe Rogan have been raving about cryotherapy and ice cold plunge pools which is known to rid the body of inflammation and just generally help the human body to function at its peak. The Matcha Club offers one such option in with their chill pool at just AED 50 if booked with a padel court session (AED 80 if booked without). Yoga and healthy eats from @nettedxb is part of the appeal. More info: +971504601461
Smash & Padel Fitness
My neighbourhood gym spot is definitely worth a mention. As the name suggests you have your Padel courts as well as the boutique gym located beside it. It’s not as massive as 7even or Train Sf but this is part of its appeal, its quiet, a decent community vibe and the trainers are awesome – ask for Tatyana she is thee best – and its located just a couple of minutes from Nakheel Mall. Membership starts at 520 per month, Padel lessons starts at 315 a session and PT at 310 a session. Packages available. More info: +971585033555
Hailed as a turning point for many fitness buffs on their journey to the level 10000 energy, I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who’s has anything other than good things to say about Barry’s bootcamp. There’s a branch located in Difc and another in the Marina so get ready to hustle for that muscle in the red room with a high intensity workout class complete with high energy trainers and amazing tunes. Various packages available More info: +97148748746
This is one of my favs and as the name suggests, its located at number 51 Al Wasl road. The fitness club is mainly focused on group classes, your membership package includes unlimited classes like boxing, yoga, spin which you select on the 51 app and can attend in the studios, to be honest I was more about the PT sessions and also I loved that the main gym floor never has more than 5 or 6 clients and trainers on it. . Great facilities and a lovely team +9713855851.
From the ladies who brought us The Salon and Beach City, The Gym is a fairly recent addition to the fitness scene in Dubai. Located on the shoreline of Palm Jumeirah – same building as Riva Beach Club this ladies gym is a nice change of scenery if you’d like to try out a class at an insanely low introductory price of just AED 75. Classes include HIIT, Bootcamps, Yoga and much more. More info: 0521849367.
