The knowledge of the trainers at UP is what sets them apart from every other gym. There is constant communication with your PT and the support I've received over the past 4 months of consistently going to the gym from my PT Emma, has changed my relationship with food and my body. It's definitely worth the more

Vuk had an extremely professional approach, focused on proper technique. He pushed me hard to deliver and I was extremely happy with the results.

The transformation program at UP literally changed my life; there is no another way I can put it. It was literally transcending for me. I went through a physical and mental transformation. I am 100% more body confident, not only because physically I am stronger, but because Goran, my trainer, lifts you to new heights on a mental level where you believe you can achieve anything you work for. His positive energy makes such a massive difference and what is very clear he genuinely does care helping me achieving my best. At the gym, I am never not happy and giggling when he is around. After loosing 18kg in 4 months, gaining muscles and feeling powerful, confident, and happy; I continue my journey with Goran with new goals. I am glad I decided to continue my journey at UP. Their techniques just work! Their professionalism, positivity, expertise and understanding of the body and mind just makes them the best!read more

If you are looking to get serious results then UP is the place to go. I signed up for a 12 week transformation and coming up to 9 weeks now, I have gone from 17% body fat to sub 10%. The physical changes in my body are incredible and I honestly never thought that they could be achieved in a life time let alone 2 months. I was assigned Niko and I was shocked at the level of commitment and effort he put in towards helping me achieve my sub 10% body fat goal. The training sessions are phenomenal, not just the physical exercises but the amount of good quality information you can absorb and learn which will help you continue long after your transformation is over in an efficient and sustainable way. A small google review will never do it justice but if you are fully committed to making life long changes and you can sacrifice certain social activities and dedicate yourself to the process then without a shadow of a doubt, you will see the results you never thought possible. Make no mistake though, this process isn't a joke and it takes a lot of hard work and a firm more

I highly recommend UP to anyone who is determined to start a complete health and body transformation.I just completed a 12 week program and the outcome is unbelievable. On one hand I lost nearly 15 kg and halved my body fat; and on the other hand I gained incredible knowledge about diet, nutritions, forms and techniques on the gym floor. Most importantly I am confident that I will manage to sustain the result.All of this was only possible with the fantastic support of my trainer, Rodney. His motivation helped me to stay focused even when the pandemic broke out and cut my program in half and his availability and pretty much daily guidance helped me through all the ups and downs and made the whole journey not only manageable but also enjoyable.While UP is not the cheapest if one is determined the result is guaranteed. Great environment, awesome gym and staff, definitely worth the more

I was looking for a coaching program that would finally push me outside my comfort zone to improve my overall performances. With Rodney, I ended up re-learning most of what I know about training and eating habits. After only weeks, the results went beyond my expectations and were worth the investment of money and more

Although challenging at times, the whole setup at UP is results-focused and to give you the best platform in transforming your body. As per many of the reviews below, there is a balance between the training programme and nutrition, with the first few weeks adopting a calorie-deficit and reducing body fat, ensuring you are as lean as possible, coupled with high volume training. This was certainly the hardest part of the overall programme as your body adapts, but it does get easier, whilst the training intensity increases. Even after only a few weeks you could see the results and improvements in physique. It was always an ambition to see what I could achieve with the right direction and guidance, and with Rod’s (UP Trainer) support and expertise, I thoroughly enjoyed it and achieved what I more

A huge investment of time, effort and money. For me, it was worth it. UP does have a unique approach-- a huge caloric deficit, high training volume and daily weight-tracking-- but everything is aimed at getting clients out the door with a transformation as quickly as possible. You really get the sense no one wants you to be there (and spending money) longer than you need to be to get where you want to go. If your goal is quickly changing your body composition, this would be the place. As a younger client than most of those I saw around I was skeptical this would be a fit, but even I just can't argue with more

Losing weight is a journey and it's one that has been 10 years long for me. I've tried almost every 'diet plan' and gym in Dubai, including trainings with PTs. At best, I've lost the weight and put it back on a few months after.UP's formula isn't extraordinary, but their delivery is. Their approach to nutrition and training is so holistic that I have no qualms recommending them to anyone, multiple times over. So far, I've lost 15 KGS and managed to keep them off, even during the covid-lockdown (lost an additional 4 KGs during it). That, I believe, is a true testament to the fact that they not only make you do, but also TEACH you the skills of balancing health with your lifestyle for lasting change - so when you leave, you know how to stay on the wagon.My trainer Ruan gets all the credit for this. From the very beginning, he took time to understand my lifestyle and obstacles to success that were unique to my situation. What I loved the most was that he kept me accountable - he checked in everyday, was available via whatsapp/zoom for queries, made sure I was taking in proper nutrition to make up for the intensity we showed on the gym floor. Every aspect of my life that could impact my journey - sleep, digestion, cravings, social hangouts - was monitored. If I was going out to a restaurant, he'd look at the menu and tell me what I could eat that wouldn't break my progress. On the workout front, I was particularly pleased with how much he focused on my posture and the correct form. Having been injured in the past while training with PTs, his laser sharp focus on every rep I was doing with him was fantastic. He's simply amazing!What UP and Ruan bring to the table with their approach is very unique. I found them through Google reviews, which generally I'm very sceptical of, but I'm glad to report that they're all pretty accurate. Give this a shot if you're ready to truly change your life, and they'll equip you with all the tools you need to more

I’d trained with other coaches before but needed to find someone truly qualified to suit my training needs and style. Jaie helped fulfill my passion for military-style training with a creative flair. He not only reminded me on the value of training without an ego but taught me to be stronger physically and mentally despite any situation. Highly recommended for those looking for an intense mental and physical more

I have loved every workout with Vuk, he is dedicated to me and only me I feel when at the gym and when I'm not, always there to answer my texts, He's helped me to build my legs despite a trapped nerve in my foot. This place is the only place to go if your serious about your health. From workouts to diet to 121 support its a gym like no more

Having worked with Emma Rooney in Group Training I opted to do a package during Lockdown in attempt to get in shape! In 12 weeks with Emma we had daily dialogue on nutrition and fitness planning.

Top notch on all aspects!These guys don't fool around. They are serious, professional and dedicated. You will be in good hands. UP is not a magic pill that you take, you have to be serious about your goals and willing to put the effort in. Just trust the process and results will come for sure...I am lucky to be working with Jaie Read, he exceeded my expectations on all fronts and never ceases to positively surprise me with his dedication to my goals and attention to more

I have been training there about 2 months to see if that was for me or not. It was. 🙂 I am very happy with the result and professional approach I experienced. My coach Tom was there for me and guided and supported me all the way during the transformation both in the gym and what is more important out of the gym, motivating me to stay on track and it actually worked. I can recommend it for everybody who is serious about their goals and wants to change their habits and feel more

I had undergone training with UP under lock down program and I must say that experience was truly amazing. I was not overweight (6 feet high with about 80 Kg) but i understood weight was coming more from fat v/s muscle, so i had too loose fat and start putting muscle to be in better shape. I lost about 7-8 Kg in 2 months (when you are not overweight and still want to trim fat is a challenge). UP Trainer (Yash Jeswani) had made me much more aware of nutrition and how every piece of food affect our body. In addition, video training session were most amazing and exhausting. Intensity level even in online training were equivalent of physical training at Gym and I also learned to get body train with no equipment but only home stuff. They are extremely professional in their approach and ensure 100% result delivery. I recommend them to anyone who is looking for more

They would go above and beyond to help you achieve your goals.I have been training with UP for almost 6 months now and I am very happy with my transformation with my trainer Giuseppe who was guiding and supporting me on every day of this experience.I have learned a lot about myself, nutrition and how to make better lifelong decisions and I can't wait to keep learning more and getting better and better. I would recommend UP for anyone who wants to have a real experience with real results!read more

A Great gym experience training at UP, very motivating environment and vibes, They have a Professional approach with proven methods. My trainer Ruan put together a great plan for me and keeps very close follow up, provides very good support and prompt replies to any concerns and coerces just the right amount of nutrition accountability as and when needed, when training on the gym floor he knows how much and when to up the ante, He is very good at tweaking things along the journey to keep the target in focus all the time, I am enjoying the whole experience at this gym and my motivation is at 100% all the more

The best gym by far in Dubai, hands down! Infact, its not just a gym, its a place where you get inspired to become the best version of yourself. The trainers are all very friendly, take a sincere interest in your well-being and keep backing you up constantly. My trainer Giuseppe ensures that I stay on the agreed track not just in the gym but also in the daily life, with continuous followups and being available 24x7! In the three months I’ve been there, I’ve seen a great transformation and can’t wait to see what the next three months have in store!read more

What a fantastic experience I’ve had so far training at UP Dubai. I’ve trained all my life so have always been relatively fit, however the education that has been shared both in terms of training and diet has delivered some amazing results so far. The gym has a great vibe and atmosphere and all the trainers are friendly, supportive and extremely knowledgable. My trainer has been instrumental in my progress so far and is there to encourage when things are going well but also to help when things go a little off track. Highly recommend to anybody looking for a transformation or to gain more education in training and more

UP promises results and they deliver!!! My trainer Tom Waite is amazing; he's there to motivate and challenge you be it in the gym for one more rep or checking in with you daily to help you stay on track. He helped me achieve my goal of losing 12kg and now we have set new targets and I'm looking forward to my 'new' body. I feel great and I'm healthier. Would recommend UP and Tom anytime!read more

I have joined UP after 2 babies and 27kg to loose! the journey didn’t seem easy to achieve at the beginning but one thing has made the difference to me and helped to go through this amazing journey : my trainer! A big thank you to Tom Waite for the great support that he is bring me into achieving my goal. I have been recommended to join UP and train with Tom by brother and I understand why today! Tom has motivated me and keep on motivating me on daily basis and that’s what mattered to me on top of great sessions at the gym. I am someone who needs to be taking care of from A to Z and Tom follows on everything, from my meal plans to how much I have slept. Giving a 5 stars to UP and the friendly and wonderful team. Thanks UP and Tom for making me feel again good about myself!read more

Tom helped me achieve the summer body I wanted in 12 weeks, and is now pushing me to reach my next goal even with my hectic flying work schedule. He goes above and beyond with 1:1 communication and around the clock availability constantly checking up on my diet and activities outside of our PT sessions. The gym and facilities are fantastic, but it’s the friendly and dedicated trainers who truly make it worth your more

I’ve tried a few gyms with personal trainers over the years and without doubt, this beats them all hands-down. UP is in an entirely different league. To walk into a gym and see the staff taking part in internal training and continual professional development, shows the maturity and professionalism of the team; they invest in their people and this speaks volumes.Aside from being great trainers, the staff are also just good people. They take time to understand the client, what their concerns are and what makes them tick. All of this allows them to know when some “additional motivation” is required, and importantly, how to apply it; this isn’t a one-size fits all “thrash” like you’ll get in many other gyms. Stick to the guidance and the diets that the trainers give and you’ll be shedding those kilos on no time. If you’re going to invest in something, invest in your health!read more

I couldn't recommend UP and Matt my trainer enough. I never thought I could get this fit/strong and lose this much fat so quickly! It's also improved my running stamina and distance which I didn't expect. My 12 week transformation also included 3 work trips/holiday and I still got amazing results. I've taken away proper techniques to improve results and heaps of advice on nutrition. It's hard work but most importantly it's enjoyable!read more

Honestly amazing. They promise and do deliver results. I wanted to lose weight and build strength. I got all of that and feel much better. I have lost my belly and love handles and can wear tight T-shirts. My waist has gone from 34 to 30. Nikola, my trainer, has been there continuously, monitoring me, advising and encouraging me. I have not had any injuries despite all the increasing weights being lifted. My range of movement has also improved.I would recommend 100%. if you are committed and want the results then this is the place to go. You will not more

UP is helping me achieve what I had concluded as impossible. After years of overindulgence and little to no regular activity, I’d lost control of my weight and appearance. UP, and namely Scott Caller my trainer, has got me back on track and heading towards what will be the best condition of my life. Scott is all things you need from a good trainer, not only diligent and hard working, but knows how best to push you in order to see results as soon as possible. He’s on hand any time of the day to help me with anything I need, be it training tips or dietary guidance, or even pure motivation to keep going, I can rely on his help whenever I need. I would recommend UP and particularly Scott to anyone. Because of him, I’m well on my way to changing my life for the better, and who wouldn’t want to do that?read more

I finally took a deep breath and braced myself to get fit. I’ve never been in the gym, always relied on an active lifestyle until I hit 40. I have been teamed up with Scott as my PT....who has been a god send. I don’t think gyms are made up of their equipment, its the people who train you. I am a novice and Scott has answered all of my ridiculous questions, educates, guides me on all aspects of my weight loss programme and motivates me every step of the way. This is exactly what I need.I heard about what you can achieve at Ultimate far I’ve lost 6.6 kg in 3 weeks !!!I am grateful to UP and thank you Scott for all you are doing for me. I cant wait to get to the gym tonight and achieve my goals.If you want to get fit and lose weight I cannot recommend it highly more

Joined UP after my husbands amazing transformation and very eager recommendation. Having been someone who took training very seriously in the distant past but had gotten into bad habits and with much less focus, I was essentially somewhat delusional on where I actually was in terms of ‘fitness’. On joining UP this changed immediately, I was re-educated on training techniques and daily diet, old myths dispelled and my passion for a healthier and stronger me increased beyond my imagination. The atmosphere is unlike any other gym, its friendly and positive and you will quickly get to know all of the trainers and other clients and despite training as an individual (although they offer group training too) there’s always encouragement from everyone around you. My trainer Jaie pushed me hard and he was always on hand in and out of the gym for support and advice which was amazing. I am now using this awesome facility andJaie to push myself further, get on stage and prove what I can achieve. I’m 46, fitter than the 20-year-old me, age doesn’t matter on this journey! Is it hard work? yes, is it harder than any training before? yes, am I in the best shape of my life and feel amazing? YES! If you want to make a real change that can carry on in the rest of your life, then here it is 😊read more

Five weeks into their well structured program I have lost 7kg, dropped my body fat% to 15 and gained much more strength and stamina. My techniques are also greatly improved.

When I start out I had a long term goal, this being phase 1 to rebuild strength and fat lose after having a surgery on my clavicle and shoulder to fix an old sports injury that hindered my training. What attracted me to UP being the results achieved in a short period and the simplicity of the nutrient and training plan. From the commencement of the online training UP gave me the tools and with Toms support, constant follow ups and professional guidance especially tailoring the training around my shoulder rehabilitation got me back into training faster than I had expected. Post 6 months from a shoulder rebuilt I am very happy with my results to date. When starting this training you need to have a set goal, will power to stay on the path and push yourself. I definitely found this challenging at times, some initial mood swings from being hungry, but kept the end goal in mind and followed the nutrition and training plan.Now with phase one of the program finished the next goal being to continue on the UP online training journey to build strength and muscle mass.Finishing the 12 week program with good results does give you a sense of achievement with the added benefit to having a greater understanding of the basis nutrient requirements that has actually simplified meal planning whilst also enjoying the differing food groups. Like anything you need to find a balance and now 48 years young I can still enjoy an active life and further pushing my limits.I can honestly recommend UP to get you the results as they have the right tools and experience tailoring a balanced program to your needs. Thank you UP!read more

UP Fitness Dubai is first class, extremely professional and it's an amazing training environment where you can really achieve your results. Not promises, results! Everyone is focused, fully committed and working hard. They make you believe you can get to a level you thought you could not reach. There is no comparison with other gyms or personal training programs. And I liked very much the hard work, not only the hard work required from my side but also from my trainer, Harjeet. His positive motivation, attention to details during the training, his consistent follow-up to make sure I was sticking to the nutrition plan was just great and definitely made the difference, giving me the motivation to do more and to achieve my results.

Commitment. That’s what you can expect when you sign up for UP Fitness. What do they expect from you? The same exact thing. Don’t come here if you are aren’t ready to define your fitness goals and be committed to achieve them. Do come here if you are ready to give it everything you got – because that is exactly what it takes. You will gain a relationship with your trainer that guides you the entire way. They'll push you through your resistance, strengthen your weaknesses, and instruct you how to live a healthy lifestyle. My trainer, Tom, critiqued most of what I thought to be correct and helped me push past mental barriers I struggled with. After 12 weeks working with him, I lost all of my stubborn body fat and have revealed the physique I haven’t seen for almost 10 years. Tom has helped me every step of the way and was even going through the same regimen, making me feel that we were both in this together. You’re accountable for your diet and activity, and your trainer will remind you of this every day. I’ll always recommend UP Fitness to anyone who is ready to seriously transform their mind, body, and more

UP Dubai is amazing and I highly recommend Ben Chandler!I’ve been training at UP London City with Emily for a while (she is fantastic, check my review there) and took a couple of cover sessions with Ben while in Dubai. Gym: the UP Dubai is a great space, well-taken care of, great brand-new equipment and UP has the best trainers in the world - so if you are looking for results, that’s the place to go!Ben gave me a couple of cover sessions which were amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed myself! Ben did a brilliant job motivating me to do more and pushing me but also noticing when it was too much and I needed help. He is technically very good and also great at conveying that knowledge. He gave some really useful advise on how to improve my technique and he is really fun to be with which makes the whole session so much better. I highly recommend more

I have been doing the group sessions with Shane for a couple of months now and have been really enjoying them. Shane is a fantastic trainer, always makes sure your form is good and pushes you just the right amount. I have improved loads in the short time I have been going to UP. I would recommend the group sessions to anybody, beginner or advanced as they are always tailored to your ability and Shane will talk you though any exercises/machines you aren’t familiar with. Best gym I have been to in Dubai by far!read more

It is the best fitness program I've ever being assigned to. I came to UP DIFC in November 2018. My weight was 97kg while my hight is 178cm. So I was "a bit" overweight. I signed up for 12 weeks program and start the journey with my personal trainer Matt. My target was to lose 20kg by end of Feb 2019, which we successfully achieved together. Matt was absolutely perfect. He was always on top of my progress and did not let me to sneak out, when it was very tough. The best thing in UP Dubai is that they not only focus on your physical side, but also change your mindset... your attitude to your body and your lifestyle. Since one month now I added daily jogging to my training sessions in UP. I'm doing 8-10 km daily now. This is something amazing and I could not really think about it just half a year ago. Thank you, Matt and UP Fitness. You really helped me to change my life. I would strongly recommend these guys to anyone, who is keen to change their body, lifestyle and mindset!read more

Most my life I have been a sporty person who lived in the gym and pool. For a few years I had not trained and was at the lowest point I could ever reach in my life with zero confidence and no motivation to go back.A friend told me about UP and his transformation. I did not believe or think this was possible as I had had four personal trainers in the past with hardly any results. Then I woke up one day, pulled myself out of my hole and made an appointment at UP. Mentally I was ready but knew I needed all the help possible, someone who understood me, could be tough and push me as well as motivate me. That was Shane 🙂 I have been training with Shane for a month now and had a body assessment the other day. I was blown away with my instant results (results only I dreamt of) Not only is Shane helping with my physical transformation but my emotional, inner self and confidence is shining again. I'm no longer lethargic and sleep so well at night. Shane believes in his clients and pushes me to limits I never knew I had. He has so much passion for what he does and is dedicated and committed. When he trains you he's with you 110% of the way. Shane has a wealth of knowledge to share. I really appreciate how he understands what the client wants and fits a meal plan and training program to help you reach your goal. UP is a place full of great energy but just want to give a massive thanks to Shane for being with me, encouraging and motivating me on this journey I've decided to take. He is by far amongst the top trainers out there. If you want an amazing transformation and are dedicated then Shane is for sure the trainer to get you there...Thanks more

I have had a very positive experience at Ultimate Performance Dubai. When I joined I was quite nervous having never done anything like this before. However I was immediately put at ease and this has to be down to the fact that my own personal trainer Andreanne has been 100% supportive and committed to getting me the results I was after. Everything was clearly explained from the training down to really helpful lifestyle advice and information. I would highly recommend more

Having trained in three different gyms in Dubai, I must say that I am addicted to UP and have achieved personal milestones and records one after another. I started training with Scott Caller about 9 weeks ago and he makes the impossible possible. Scott is extremely knowledgeable and after defining targets together based on my body composition measurement and my own objective, he has personalized a training plan for me that involves an evolving nutrition program and tailored workout regime. Scott genuinely cares for my progress and checks on me constantly to ensure that I keep motivated. During the training hours, he is focused and pushes me to my limit and enables me to discover the strength that I thought I never had. I am in a much better shape than when I first started, both physically and mentally - thanks to UP and Scott. I am renewing for another 8 weeks and can’t wait to see more results!read more

My experience with UP has been amazing so far (6 months now). The energy in the gym is awesome and the team is very professional. It helps to know that there is continuous training for the trainers themselves. They've been eager to help and treat my goal as theirs. They give you the time you need and make adjustments that work for you. Most importantly they helped me develop healthy habits even outside the gym. I started going because I needed to, now I do enjoy going there!read more

What an amazing gym! I have been trying to get back in shape for years due to few issues (sciatica and back), spent so much time and money and physio until I found UP! Tom Waite understood my situation and not only fixed my sciatica by aligning with my physio; he gave me confidence into training hard; and got me hooked into body weight training! Lost 20 kgs in 4 months and 13% body fat! Not yet done as we’re busy now getting final results for a photo shoot in April 😉! UP, where the results begin! Thanks to Tom and every trainer there are not the typical PT; they’re so focused on your goals and are so closed to you on a daily basis! Train hard; dieting and walk 10K steps every day! My lifestyle changed and so my confidence level! Thank you all!read more

I have been training with Shane in his group classes for 10 weeks and the result has been amazing. I am a regular @ UP Group Classes and generally have a decent fitness level but Shane – within a very short period of time – managed to push me to another level not only aesthetically but also in terms of strength. The first 2 weeks with him were painful and filled with soreness. Initially I was not a fan of his training as he goes where you feel it most (☺ which is not really pleasant) BUT once I saw the results coming new motivation started kicking in. Shane is extremely knowledgeable with regards to body shaping and nutrition, he will push you outside your comfort zone. If you are committed and stick to your nutrition you will get the results you are looking for and get you to your best physical more

Ultimate Performance is a place for ultimate transformation. I started training with Scott Harrison almost 7 weeks ago. When we first did the assessment and the training plan, he was very confident that we can easily achieve results within the agreed timeframe. To be honest I didn’t believe him...but when I started to see very obvious results from the second week of training, I knew where his confidence was coming from. Scott is very knowledgeable and motivating, he pushes you to give your best and to believe in what you can achieve when you commit to the training and diet more

I have been a client of Tom Hutchinson since 2016: originally on a 12-week intense program at UP Mayfair London, the results of which were so impressive I continued the program for over a year, and when Tom later moved to setup UP Dubai, I retained his services via UP online program - so needless to say, I think he and UP are well worth the investment!The core UP program will lead to fundamental changes in your lifestyle/attitude, and IF you stick to plan, results (both physical and psychological) are virtually guaranteed.Such progress and success are addictive - it is very likely you will want to continue, either at a UP gym, via a UP online program, or indeed, having gained total control of your body, simply continuing solo.I personally find the constant presence of Tom in dynamically tweaking my diet/workouts to my evolving body/circumstances to be extremely motivational - albeit done from 1000s of miles away!No need to write more - just go for UP and get started!read more

UP is a gym where hard work pays off. Clean diet, excellent trainers and consistency will get you incredible results. I am absolutely delighted with my transformation so far and after seeing what a few weeks can do I won’t be stopping any time soon! It’s the best investment you can do for yourself if you really want to make a change. As long as you are focused on getting results and prepared to put the hard work in, there will be no looking back. I want to thank my fantastic trainer MATT SOCHON for all his hard work and commitment in wanting the best from me in each session. He never gives up. It makes you want to try harder every time. Thank you Matt!🌟I can honestly say going to UP is the best thing I have done for myself. There is nothing nicer than feeling good , healthy and energized. I can’t recommend it enough. Just go for it!read more

I joined UP 18 months ago, and I can honestly say it has been the best decision I ever made. My trainer, Tom Hutchinson, is just amazing: his knowledge of fitness is second to none and he always makes sure that I am on track, food wise and activity wise. This accountability is what differentiates UP from other gyms. To cut the story short: I managed to finally lose body fat and I definitely feel great. Thanks Tom !read more

Starting using the group training sessions 1 week ago with Shane. Absolutely incredible training. You can train with up to 6 people but still get top quality attention from a top notch PT. I’ve dropped a considerable amount after my first week of 3 sessions. Vibe across the gym is high energy intense training and everybody there for a purpose. One of the bonuses is the trainers look the part and clearly live by the advice they give. Shane’s a top lad as well 👌read more

5 weeks in on a 13 week program, I've lost a significant amount of weight and body fat already. That is due to the experience and professionalism of the guys at UP, with a tailored approach to each individual of both an evolving nutrition plan and exercise regime. Working with a dedicated personal trainer who understands what you are going through delivers results through honest, hard work. Definitely the way to go once one commits to getting leaner and more

I stumbled upon UP-Dubai in a local news article. With a little research, I quickly felt the difference in their approach to training.Pros - I like the fact that the group training is delivered in small focused groups of 5-6 pax and is akin to personal training at a fraction of the cost. They gave me a free trial session, which helped in experiencing it first-hand. The joining questionnaire is great for goal-setting, and the body measurements (before and after) help put the facts in front. Staff and trainers are very courteous and take good care of you. My trainer Jim Heath is sharp and switched on and the way he engages with the group, I always get the feeling that he is fully focused on me (I guess others feel so too). Jim also gave me a personalized diet plan which is great to supplement the training with. Facilities at the gym include showers, lockers, towels, reception/ waiting lobby and free valet parking for members.Cons - The floor area itself is not very big (compared to some other gyms in town), but they have used the space neatly so it more
