Homegrown fitness facility GymNation is celebrating reaching its one-million-member visit milestone – and the good news is, you will benefit.

The gym opened its first location in Dubai’s Al Quoz in July 2018, and it’s now celebrating its one millionth member visit. To mark the occasion there’s going to be a 48-hour flash sale.

You can join any open, or soon to open, GymNation location for just Dhs99. But be quick as the sale ends on Friday 31 July.

The one millionth member check-in was Joanne Mary Ababa, who checked into GymNation Bur Dubai on Tuesday at 11.04am. As a reward, she received a free lifetime GymNation membership, as well as prizes worth more than Dhs10,000 from GymNation partners.

More than 1 million Dubai residents have visited GymNation since its opening – thanks to its unrivalled price point, which is typically a third of other gym operators and each gym boasting more than 30,000 sq ft of space, 24-hour opening hours,  more than 400 free classes a month, over 500 pieces of Matrix gym equipment and free parking at all sites.

GymNation is a UAE homegrown business, established by three friends who’d lived in Dubai for several years and had grown increasingly frustrated by the cost of having a gym membership. And so Loren Holland, Frank Afeaki and Anthony Martland, came up with the idea for GymNation - Dubai’s first affordable gym.

The one million member visits have been across gyms in Al Quoz, Bur Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah, and there are exciting plans for the brand that is going from strength-to-strength, with five more GymNation branches coming this year in Motor City, Mirdif, Silicon Oasis, Downtown Dubai and Khalidiyah Mall in Abu Dhabi.

“We felt that the Dubai gym industry needed a shake-up as it had become stagnant and over-priced,” said Holland. “We saw a gap in the market for a world-class offering that was priced fairly so we could make health and fitness available to everyone. And that’s just what we have achieved. Everyone told us the concept wouldn’t work in Dubai, but at GymNation there’s no social status, everyone is welcome and we’ve provided an affordable price for all. It’s just a great and inspiring environment that more than million people have benefited from in under 24 months.”
