Revealed: 10 high-end gyms in Dubai you can try for free

From a free-day at the gym to complimentary classes, here are the places you can sample for free


With the summer heat burning down upon Dubai, it’s become too hot for that morning jog around the block.

You may have also turned into the casual couch potato either because you are too exhausted after work or are too lazy to step out for a walk in the evening.

However, with epidemics such as diabetes and obesity rising in the UAE, it is essential to maintain a fitness regimen.

Across the country, there are several gyms equipped with the latest exercise gear, great interiors and licenced trainers.

Although the top-of-the-range gyms come at a hefty price, most of them offer trial periods and an option to try out some of their group classes such as pilates and zumba.

If you were to check out one gym a day and try out their classes, you would have earned yourself an exceptional workout – for free.
