A brand-new, state-of-the-art gym has opened up on the Palm Jumeirah, and it’s promising some of the toughest, fastest and most technologically advanced workouts around.

A new Fitness First has swung its doors open at the brand-new Nakheel Mall on the Palm, and it has introduced a load of immersive fitness classes, with it. There are new concepts coming that use technology in different ways, including BOX, which is designed to flood your senses while in a purpose-built boxing studio and doing a high intensity interval training session – to keep your heart rate high, your muscles aching and those calories burning.

Meanwhile, the KUBE is a dedicated space for a 30-minute, uber-HIIT session that (and we’ve tried it) is thoroughly, ridiculously exhausting. You’ll get put through your paces by trainers who give you noise-cancelling headsets so you can tune into some pounding music and get yelled at down a microphone by PTs who literally get in your head while you’re smashing it on the stairclimber, assault bike and multi-purpose box jump-meets-weights-meets-battle ropes area.

There’s also a dedicated spinning studio with real-time data projection and visualisations and a dedicated studio for a bit of hot yoga with soft, calming lighting throughout.

It’s all very tiring, and you’re guaranteed a top workout – whether it’s in one of the classes or the open gym area with pretty much every sort of machine you could wish for.

Meanwhile, a new StudioRepublik is set to open in Dubai in January, and it looks stunning.
Open Sun-Thu 6am-11pm, Fri-Sat 7am-9pm. Nakheel Mall, Palm Jumeirah (04 572 6168).
