Our Collective New Normal
(updated on 17/01/2021)
Welcoming you back safely and with positive energy
We missed you so much during the lockdown so we're over the moon to be able to reconnect at the studio since May 27, 2020.
We have reopened in full compliance with strict health & safety conditions. Please read carefully these new guidelines and adhere to them. Together, we can preserve the gains of our sacrifices during the lockdown and home confinement periods and continue to help one another in flattening the curve of Covid-19 in the UAE.
One thing is clear: our members and staff are our number one priority!
In line with the Dubai Sports Council's guidelines (update no. 3), it is mandatory to wear masks at all times. Clients are allowed to temporarily lower their masks while engaged in physical exercise, or if they have difficulty breathing adequately. They must however put their masks back on again when the exercise is over, before cleaning the equipment and leaving the room and while walking through the premises.
