Gyms in Dubai are by no means in short supply. In fact, Dubai is probably home to some of the most luxurious and eclectic facilities in the world. And as more and more influencers migrate to the City of Gold, you can bet the fitness scene will continue to grow exponentially. But amid the masses of companies and entrepreneurs fighting it out to make their mark, F45 has, for a long time, stood head and shoulders above many of them, strengthening its grip on the game by opening a host of facilities. The business now has 9 gyms across the city and is showing little sign of slowing up.
So, what is F45 and what’s so different about it?
The answer to that question is quite literally in the name. The ‘F’ in F45 stands for functional, which means members focus on a mix of circuit and HIIT style workouts geared towards everyday movements. The ‘45’ is the total amount of time for sweat-dripping, heart-pumping fun. And no, that doesn’t include the warm-up for those of you thinking you might get off lightly.
Supported by an expert team of trainers, F45’s workouts are designed to unify the muscle groups of the body and to help make you feel and perform better in all aspects of your life. To do that, the workout schedule is divided into a 7-day body-burning split. Wednesdays are assigned for cardio, while resistance training takes place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. To knit that all together, Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays are left for hybrid sessions.
It sounds like a lot, and of course, you don’t have to do the full schedule. But what has played a key part in F45’s success in the Gulf Tiger is its community-focused approach. Each rep is done as part of a team, helping you get every last ounce from your workout. Aside from the group aspect, there is also a tonne of great equipment which you can use to fine-tune your gains. A testimony from one gym user on the F45 website said: “The workouts will kick your butt every time, plus they can be modified for beginners and those with more experience. It’s for everyone and I love it.”
How much does it all cost?
There are a host of different membership options, each with varying costs. F45 offers 1, 3, 6 and 12 month deals. As with most other gyms, the more time you sign up for, the cheaper it works out. For example, 1 month will set you back 1,250 UAE dirham, whereas committing to 12 months works out at just 9,000 UAE dirham. For more details, visit F45’s website.
