As government initiatives, fitness campaigns and sports group are actively raising awareness on the importance of a balanced lifestyle to stay fit, there has been a surge in the number of fitness centers and health clubs across the country. Below we want to give the list of gyms which provide best services to their clients.

This brand on Sheikh Zayed Road has a casual, welcoming vibe but with plenty of fancy touches, like valet parking, hair straighteners in the ladies changing rooms and a cracking sauna and steam room. There are three main workouts: WeTRAIN includes circuit training, kettlebells, parkour and callisthenics; WeSPIN is a dedicated spin studio; and Weplay offers classes like yoga, Pilates, Zumba and aerobics.
