Dubai has become a real haven for gym lovers over the last few years, with so many different places to workout available and a brilliant fitness-focused attitude almost everywhere you go.
But what if you’re looking for a workout that’s just a bit different. Something other than the usual weights rooms and cardio machines?
Well then look no further than Gravity Calisthenics Gym.
The Origins of Gravity Calisthenics Gym
Founded in 2015 by fitness and adventure enthusiast Yousuf Al Gurg, Gravity Calisthenics Gym was created to fill a gap in the market for people who wanted to learn and practice calisthenics and parkour in Dubai.
Since it opened it’s grown to become one of the top calisthenic facilities in the world, thanks to its fantastic facilities and world famous trainers.
But let’s back up a bit. First of all, what even is calisthenics?!
What is Calisthenics?
Well, it’s a form of exercise that uses your own body weight and minimal equipment to build strength, flexibility, and endurance. Calisthenics is a brilliant way to get in shape without having to rely on weights or machines, and that’s exactly what Gravity Calisthenics Gym is all about.
