Fitness First

Mega gym with good membership deals and venues all over town

Unlike the majority of gyms, Fitness First gives members the chance to pay per month. In addition to the Ibn Battuta branch, there are other outlets around the city. Once you’ve joined one branch, you can use any other, and all of the group classes are included as part of your membership. Personal training is available, as are saunas, steam rooms and a members’ lounge, where you can unwind watching a DVD after your workout. Fitness First

    4 months back I joined fitness first as a replacement for my brother who left the country for college abroad and couldn't terminate his contract....paid 200 and transferred memberships....since then, I never stood foot inside fitness first...never even applied for an entry card...they kept deducting 450 monthly from my credit card and I couldn't stop them....when I finally went there to cancel my membership (after deducting more than 2000) they refused and said "you signed the contract, you pay!).... they offered to freeze the remaining 3 months at 112 dirhams monthly! and I had to accept....
    word of advice, don't join them...they are good at marketing but their gyms are often crowded and poorly maintained....they don't care about their customers and they will charge you even if you don't use their services...companies with such policies that don't take reason and common sense should go down the hill...I hope they incur losses and go bankrupt....

    Actually I go to Fitness First located in Saudi Arabia. I have googled: "fitness first reviews comments" and I found out that people are giving very similar comments though they have experienced Fitness First in different multinational locations. Hope that FF Management can get into those "reviews" and do something in this regard.

    I just wanted to inform all the new members of Fitness first at the introduction level evryone is so sweet they promise alot like wathcing your favorite programme while doing your workout but it is so not true they will only have the channels that they want and even if you do bring up the issue no one is really bothered.Secondly when getting a personal training be sure about the person you choose coz out of the 4 i had this year only 1 was good .

    Fitness first is just like any othere gym so please do not get overwhelmed by the display of instruments intially like i did.
