At last the time has come! We can get back to the gym, close down the Zoom workouts and leave the random items we turned into weights at home. All those machines, free weights, racks and rigs… it’s a dream come true!
With almost all of our gym partners back up and running and ready to welcome Privilee, we have rounded up 10 of our most favourite open gyms across Dubai to help you plan your post-lockdown training. From the uber-luxurious to those perfectly practical, these gyms should be on the top of your list as you get back to a life out of lockdown.
Before you run for the door, remember to restart your membership in the Privilee app, grab your gym bag complete with towel and your own water bottle and you’re ready to go!
