Tips from a fitness professional!

Fitness professional and Privilee Member, Amy, shares how she stays consistent with training and chilling!

In today's fast-paced world, finding the perfect balance between work, fitness, and relaxation can be quite a challenge. However, since I discovered Privilee, achieving this has become surprisingly effortless. 

Privilee has become my go-to companion for enjoying a holistic approach to wellness. Let me share with you how I make the most out of my Privilee membership, leveraging it to optimise both my gym routine and my moments of rest and rejuvenation.

Elevating my gym routine

As a fitness professional, I understand the importance of maintaining a regular workout routine. With Privilee, I not only have access to a wide range of top-tier gyms, but I also enjoy the convenience of trying out new ones. The app's gym selection is diverse, ensuring that I never fall into a workout rut. Whether I'm into strength training, cardio sessions, or group classes, I can easily find a gym that suits my preferences.

One of my favourite aspects of Privilee's gym offerings is the emphasis on quality. The premium facilities help me stay motivated and steadily improve my fitness levels.

A few of the gyms that I like to train at are: 

  • Warehouse Gym Jumeirah Park - I love how light and spacious it is here! Plus, they have an outdoor pool!
  • FitRepublik - The equipment selection at this gym is incredible. 
  • Al Habtoor Polo Resort - The gym at this resort is a super convenient location to me, and I really enjoy working out in a quiet space sometimes! 

Relaxation and rejuvenation

Privilee's benefits extend beyond the gym, providing me with exclusive access to luxurious beach clubs, stunning pools and private peaceful beaches. When I need a break from my busy routine, there's nothing quite like unwinding poolside with breathtaking views as my backdrop. The tranquillity of the pool areas, coupled with the added bonuses of sauna and steam rooms, takes relaxation to a whole new level.

Embracing the calming environment of Privilee's partner locations, I've discovered the power of relaxation in maintaining my overall well-being. The sauna and steam rooms not only offer physical benefits like detoxification and improved circulation, but they also provide a mental escape that helps me reset and tackle challenges with a clearer mind.

Below are my top spots for a pool day:


Indulging in culinary delights

True wellness encompasses nourishment for the body and soul. Privilee understands this, which is why they offer food and drink discounts at selected (amazing!) restaurants, bars and cafés as part of the membership. 

After a satisfying workout session or a tranquil day by the pool, I love treating myself to a delicious meal at one of the partnering restaurants. Not only do I get to enjoy a delectable culinary experience, but I also save money thanks to Privilee's generous discounts. 

Whether I'm in the mood for a healthy salad or a gourmet feast, the restaurant options on the app cater to a variety of tastes and preferences. This adds an extra layer of enjoyment to my wellness journey, reminding me that balance doesn't mean deprivation. It’s also a great way to plan date nights, explore new places, catch up with friends or colleagues, and be able to enjoy dining for a fraction of the price. 

Are you looking for new places to dine at? Some of the ones I frequent the most are…

  • Splendour Fields JLT - It’s great to catch up on emails and remote work here, especially if I’m at other meetings close by. 
  • Asia Asia - Myself and my husband Hendrik love coming here for a date night! 
  • Common Grounds Nakheel Mall - This café has such a huge (and yummy) menu, you can come for a meal at any time of day. Try a smoothie when you go! 


Post-workout breakfast bliss:

One of my favourite rituals is indulging in a leisurely breakfast after an invigorating morning workout. Me and my husband often train together, and it’s so nice to have that extra time with each other afterwards. 

With Privilee, I have the privilege of combining my fitness routine with a tasty dining experience. After a productive gym session, I will head for a hearty breakfast that refuels my body and sets a positive tone for the day ahead. A great spot for this is Harvest & Co at Warehouse Gym Jumeirah Park, where Members save 25% on food and drinks! The wholesome and healthy café is located on the ground floor of the gym, so we can easily pop in after a workout. I love how fresh, organic and delicious the menu is, and the coffee is next level! 

This post-workout meal isn't just about replenishing energy—it's about savouring the moment, appreciating the progress I've made, and gearing up for whatever challenges lie ahead. 


In conclusion, Privilee has become an indispensable part of my wellness journey. By seamlessly combining fitness opportunities with moments of relaxation, indulgence, and reflection, this app has transformed the way I approach my well-being. Whether it's elevating my gym routine, unwinding by the pool, enjoying a nutritious meal, or treating myself to a post-workout breakfast, Privilee has shown me that taking time out for myself is essential for achieving a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle. If you're looking to infuse your fitness journey with luxurious experiences and rejuvenation, Privilee could be the wellness companion you've been looking for.
