With many chains in Dubai, we will review some of the best Fitness First Gyms in Dubai and evaluate their pricing, facilities, hygiene, equipment to allow you, the customer, make an educated decision whether this gym is one to consider when deciding to start a gym membership.
In this review, we will look at Fitness First’s Dubai – Burjuman branch where it has become one of the most popular branches over the years. It is very popular due to where it is located. It’s located in the heart of Al Karama, right inside of Burjuman Centre. Many customers find that its location is perhaps one of the biggest selling points, as they have access to shops, coffee shops and have free parking for a certain amount of hours.
This gym also provides a ladies-only facility, however, this is a small area only with not much facilities. They do include the steam room and sauna and also showers of course. The ladies section is very limited in terms of size so if you’re looking for the same gym facilities as the unisex, it’s not available at this branch. You’re better trying other Fitness First Branches like Al Barsha, where they offer much bigger women working area and more facilities.
There are also female personal trainers available to assist you and with the ladies areas, although much smaller, they can also train you there.
Access to the Pool – Free Entry for Members
Access to the pool is included in the pricing, the swimming pool size around 75metres x 30metres with a total of 4 lanes and some chairs to rest on after your sessions. With the access to the pool, they do offer swimming sessions which have been 750AED for 10 sessions, this equates to 75AED per shared session. Please note that these will be shared classes and not private classes, private classes can be quoted by asking them gym directly.
