We have a boutique gym with excellent, dedicated personal trainers and studios for group classes led by our energetic instructors. To compliment our gym and class offerings we have Optimal Therapy, our physiotherapy centre, Caporilli’s cafe serving wholesome and nutritious food and it is also the home of our triathlete coaching division Optimal TRI. We are passionate about inspiring and motivating people to live longer, happier, healthier lives.’
In 2010 Paul Cracknell and Marco Caporilli, the quieter partners at optimalFITNESS, imagined a holistic recreational gym at the outer reaches of a stalled Dubai. Within months the inspirational pair had realised their ambition. ‘optimal’ was born. Over the next four years, they grew the facility into a group that consisted of a gym with group classes, a wonderful healthy café and a sports therapy centre.
As Dubai again expanded they included David Labouchere OBE as a new Partner with the express responsibility of further establishing optimalFITNESS as the best of the best.
No longer on the outskirts of Dubai, optimalFITNESS is now firmly entrenched to serve the communities of Arabian Ranches 1 & 2, Mudon, Victory Heights, Sports City, Motor City, Layan.
With a wide offering of fitness via our Personal Trainers or our vibrant group exercise classes, coached sessions with opt2run running club, outdoor coached cycling sessions and our triathlete coaching business, optimalTRI. To complement and support our fitness offering we also have optimalTHERAPY which has grown into an excellent physiotherapy centre and Caporilli’s Café, our healthy eating hub to refuel pre or post-workout or just drop in for a coffee.

We strive for each and every member to feel they belong to somewhere special, supported and part of a family.
We aspire to be the best holistic health centre in the region having the best trainers, instructors and coaches offering the best service and environment to support our clients’ healthy living goals.
