It’s vital for anyone in today’s world to bear their health in mind, to actively, mindfully seek to improve it. Sedentary lifestyles and an overabundance of cheap, sugary, fatty foods makes it essential – the risks of not doing so are severe, including a heightened risk factor across a plethora of chronic diseases and ailments.

Finding the right gym in Dubai


Getting the right gym is central to your fitness journey – it can go a long way towards making or breaking your success story.


Whatever your goals, requirements and tastes, there will be a nearby gym for you. Whether you’re looking for weight loss, bodybuilding, aerobics classes, yoga, personal training, or other any of the many fitness classes and styles catered for by gyms throughout the city, you will be able to find what you’re looking for.


Luckily for anybody in Dubai, there are plenty of good gyms and leisure centres to choose from in the city, from the raw to the sublime, from hardcore training to pampering luxury, from elite facilities to places that welcome newcomers to the fitness world.


I personally have a few favourites dotted around the city. However, there are a few, run by a single chain, that stand out. I would always go with GymNation, who expertly mix economy with good-quality, offering world-class equipment and hosting top-notch trainers and classes.
