There are many reasons why Fidelity is so popular with Dubai’s fitness fans. Not only does this JLT club have a wide range of classes to suit everyone’s needs but it also has some of the best equipment money can buy.
The minute you walk through the palm scan-operated turnstile, you notice the friendly vibe from both the staff and the members. Far from being the domain of Lycra-clad posers, you will encounter keep-fitters of all shapes and sizes who share the common goal of improving their overall health.
The choice of group classes is impressive and although the various Les Mills options are at the fore, you can also sign up for yoga, spin, Pilates, legs, bums and tums, Zumba, abs blaster and metafit sessions, all of which are run by amiable and highly professional instructors.
If you’re not keen on working out with your fellow members then Fidelity has lots to offer the solo trainer. Take your place on one of the Technogym treadmills and pound off those pounds while either watching TV or enjoying the lovely vista of the lakes.
Fidelity has a host of personal trainers willing to offer their services for a more personalised programme. And once those guys have worked you to the bone (for your own good, of course) then we suggest you cool off with a dip in the lovely outdoor infinity pool.
Throughout the year, Fidelity organises a range of events and challenges including fun runs, GX marathons and the notorious Vertical Run up 64 floors of the Almas Tower. It also has a range of special introductory offers for newbies but what we like is the fact it often offers prize draws new recruits. Anyone for an all-expenses-paid holiday in Greece?
Prices vary. Open Sat-Thu 6am-11pm, Fri 8am-8pm. Almas Tower, JLT (04 451 1133).Fidelity Fitness Club Diamond Edition
