Is gym membership too expensive? The closest workout space too far away? The Dubai Fitness Challenge is eroding any excuses for not getting involved with free gyms popping up in 75 locations around Dubai.

There are three different forms of these pop-up fitness units: mobile gyms, mobile urban, and mobile fitness and they’ll be open from 7am-9pm as part of the recently-launched Dubai Fitness Challenge.

Mobile Gyms

Tailor-make your own workout using the provided equipment (including weights). A children’s play area will also be available to keep your kids busy while you hit those high-intensity heart rates.

They’ll be popping up in City Walk; Mirdif Uptown Park; Safa Park; Ibn Battuta; Dubai Internet City; Jumeirah Lakes Towers

Mobile Urban

Areas for football, tennis, BMX, skateboarding and parkour with specialist coaches on hand to provide guidance.

Dubai Festival City; Jumeriah Beach Residence; Mercato Mall; Skydive Dubai; Al Barsha; The Gardens.

Mobile Fitness

If you need more guidance, head to a mobile fitness unit where half-an-hour classes will be offered every 45 minutes, ranging from yoga and boxercise to fitness and Pilates.

Arabian Ranches Golf Club; D3; Golden Mile Galleria; Jumeirah Island; Marasi Business Bay; The Beach at JBR; City Centre Me’aseim.

Activities are open to people of all ages and abilities,  you can win prizes and most importantly, completing those exercise goals means you can tuck in to your favourite foods feeling a little less guilty.
