About GymNation

Welcome to GymNation

Let’s take it back to 2017…. A typical gym membership in the UAE costs AED400+ per month and you need to sign up to a 12-month contract. To make matters worse, the only option is to pay upfront…for the WHOLE year…in one BIG payment! (That’s an initial payment of over AED4,800!)


In fact, joining a gym in the UAE was so expensive that in a report released at the time by Deutsche Bank, Dubai was ranked as the 2nd most expensive city in the world to buy a gym membership.


This had to stop! UAE residents had been overcharged for sub-standard gym facilities for far too long!  So, we decided to put “Fitness First…Not Profits First” and developed a low-cost gym brand that catered to what people really need.


GymNation was born, and it was time to make health and fitness affordable and accessible for EVERYONE in the UAE.
