Local brand GymNation has announced that they will opening new fitness clubs in Downtown Dubai, Silicon Oasis, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah this year. Following its successful launch of Bur Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah branches, the fitness club said its frill-free, affordable fitness concept was growing in popularity and it now has close to 20,000 members. Just over a year old, the fitness club targets to reach over 50,000 in membership and become the largest fitness chain in the UAE.
Founder Loren Holland speaking to Arabian Business said: “When we first set up GymNation, the UAE gym market had become rather stagnant, it was incredibly expensive, actually the second most expensive in the world according to a Deutsche Bank study, and so we saw a real opportunity to develop a value driven, low-cost, gym brand that caters to what people really need. Our new locations all follow the same unique proposition which includes our signature AED99 per month pre-launch offer, and whilst we still cut out the frills, we ensure our facilities are world class, open 24/7 and have one of the most vibrant atmospheres you will find anywhere in the city."
