How can you offer gym memberships at a 1/3rd the price of other gyms?
It’s really simple, we offer a world-class gym with no 'frills and fuss' and therefore have opted not to include a sauna, steam, spa and pool within GymNation locations. We also cut out the frills such as a towel service and use technology to automate our systems (e.g. online sign-up, member app, etc). All of this helps keeps the costs low and we pass on these savings through to you, our members, in the form of fantastically low and flexible gym memberships. Putting it simply, we focus on providing proper health and fitness benefits, and less on the expensive luxuries that only a very small percentage of gym members want or would actually use!
How do I join GymNation?
It’s a really simple process. You can join online through our website or by coming into the gym and speaking with a member of our team. To join via the website click on JOIN NOW from the main menu, select your type of membership, and away you go. You’ll be a member in just a few simple steps. Alternatively come down to the gym anytime (we are open 24/7!) and a member of the GymNation team will be happy to help get you signed up to the best gym in the UAE!
This is a fantastic offer you’re half the price and twice the size, what is the catch?
There is no catch! At GymNation we strive to offer you transparent and affordable prices and flexible contract options – not bad for Dubai’s largest gym with 400+ classes a month and 500+ pieces of gym equipment!
What are the different membership options?
A. We like to keep things transparent and simple at GymNation. We have two membership options:
1. Contract: Where you sign up for a 12-month agreement but only pay monthly (No big upfront payments like in other gyms!)
2. No Contract: If you do not wish to commit to a 12-month agreement then we offer a flexible option where you can cancel and rejoin at any point in time.
3. GymNation Plus: This is our most popular membership option! GymNation Plus includes access to all GymNation UAE locations as well as many other benefits included in the cost, including FREE PT sessions and monthly guest passes for your friends and family.
Do I need to pay for 12 months upfront?
Absolutely not – our ethos is to make our membership packages as flexible as our yoga instructors! At GymNation we only expect you to pay each month rather than upfront, making our memberships more affordable for you.
Can I try before I buy?
Hey, we don’t call ourselves the most transparent and flexible gym for nothing. That’s why we offer a range of guest pass options to suit. You can apply for a guest pass through our website or visit the gym reception where a member of the GymNation team help you out!
What are GymNation's opening hours?
All GymNation locations are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so that you never miss a workout!
What is the minimum age to join The Gym?
You need to be 16 years old to join GymNation.
Can I cancel my membership?
If you sign up for our no-contract membership that means you’ve got complete freedom to cancel at any time, with no penalties at all. If you sign up for our 12-month membership then you can cancel any time after the initial 12 month period.
Can I pay by cash or card?
The easiest way to become a member is via our website – Join now – where you can join using any debit or credit card. We do not accept cash payments as we seek to automate all our processes and systems to keep the back-office staff count low and we pass these savings through to you in the form of the UAE's Most Affordable Gym membership.

WORKING OUT AT GYMNATION
Is the weights area just for men?
The weights area at GymNation is certainly not just for men. Unlike many other gyms, all of our gyms are designed to be welcoming and non-intimidating, in fact over 30% of GymNation members are brand new to health and fitness and never owned a gym membership before joining GymNation!
Everyone is welcome in our weights areas, but we have also added separate ladies-only weights areas in most of our gyms to provide an additional option to members who wish to train in a ladies-only gym. Weight training has a number of substantial benefits to both men and women alike. It increases bone density which in turn strengthens your bones, it also improves body composition. Weight training can also reduce your body fat and increase your muscle mass as well as increasing metabolism, improving physical fitness and preventing injury. It’s safe to say weight training is for everyone...just like the GymNation weights area!
