This very affordable community gym in Satwa has recently extended its opening hours to accommodate those among its clientele who want to work out before they head to work.
It mainly caters for bodybuilder types looking to crunch some iron ahead of their next competition, with a selection of around 100 weight machines available across the 465 square metre space.
Since it opened in 2011, VIP has gained a loyal following among the beefcakes of Satwa who enjoy the extremely reasonable rates and the concerted efforts of the team to ensure the clients build muscles fast. Although there seems to be a lot of testosterone flowing through the building, woman are also welcome too, while TV screens playing sports on a loop serve as an inspiration to members striving to beef up.
Various special offers during the year might well seal the deal for those looking for a cheaper way to hit the gym.
Dhs560 for a three-month membership. Open daily 5.30am-midnight. Al Mina Road, Satwa, www.facebook.com/VIPGymDubai/ (04 345 2207).VIP Gym
