Frequently Asked Questions

Can I pay with cash?

Cash is old school! We are new school! In order to save on time and back office costs (which we can pass on to our members in the form of lower membership prices), all our membership payments are taken via debit/credit card through our website. So we don't accept any cash membership payments. Our website is 100% secure and data is only used for your GymNation membership transaction.

Can I refer friends or family members to GymNation?

Studies show that training with your friends or family can improve your results by up to 60%. You are much more likely to achieve your fitness goals if you begin your journey with someone else!


You can refer as many friends as you want via our refer a friend page by clicking here.


Keep an eye out for our monthly referral competitions where you can win Fitbits, gym bags, free memberships and other prizes for referring people to GymNation.

How do I secure a AED99 per month Founder Membership?

You will need to be very quick! Our AED99 per month Founder Membership payment page will open on Sunday 12th April at 1pm. You will receive an SMS and email (please make sure you check your junk/spam folders) and there will also be links on our Facebook and Instagram stories.

We only have 500 x AED99 Founder Memberships available! They will be sold on a first come, first served basis! Once they are gone they are gone! After this, we will release another 500 memberships at AED129.

What happens if I miss out on AED99 p/m rate in pre-sell?

If you miss out on an AED99 Founder Membership, then you just weren't fast enough, but don't worry! We will release another 500 memberships at just AED129 per month, so make sure you secure one of these, before they also sell out.


The price will keep increasing as we get closer to opening, so the quicker you lock in your membership, the lower the price you will be paying, and the more money you will save!

What is a pre-sell offer?

This is when we reward our founder and loyal members with the very best GymNation Downtown membership rates that you will keep as long as you are a GymNation member. It is your only opportunity to secure the best possible price for your GymNation membership at the best gym in Downtown Dubai.


Remember though, our pre sell offers sell out very quickly, so DON'T MISS OUT!

What will the price be on opening?

Once we open GymNation Downtown near Financial Centre Metro Station our membership price will still be a very affordable AED199 per month with an AED199 joining fee.


But why wait until we open? Secure your Founder Membership rate during our pre sell period and SAVE hundreds of Dirhams!

Why should I buy now when the gym isn’t open?

The only payment you make now is to secure your discounted Founder Membership rate.


This one time payment also covers the first month of your GymNation Downtown membership and no other payments will be made until the month after we open up.


Are classes included in the price? 

ABSOLUTELY! We have over 200+ FREE CLASSES per month which are included as part of your GymNation Abu Dhabi membership.


Classes includes Les Mills BODYPUMP, GRIT, BODYATTACK, BODYCOMBAT, RPM, our popular JumpNation (Trampoline class), Yoga, Spinning, Zumba and more! You also have FREE 24/7/365 access to our virtual classes and dedicated virtual studio, where you can take part in on demand group exercise classes whenever you like!

Can I use other GymNation gyms with my membership?

Definitely! By the end of 2020, there will be 10 GymNation locations across the UAE!


Our passport membership will soon be available, which will provide you with access to all of these GymNation UAE locations.


Do you have a swimming pool, steam room or sauna?

Who needs a steam room? It's 50 degrees outside!


GymNation locations provide the widest range of gym equipment and the largest gym space available in the UAE at the most affordable prices. In order to provide such low membership rates, we don't have swimming pools, steam rooms or sauna's within our gyms, but we do have full changing room, shower and bathroom facilities (including lockers) which are all accessible 24/7 as part of your membership.

Do you have towels?

We offer a high-quality exercise and fitness facility with no 'frills and fuss' and therefore we do not provide members with a towel service. This keeps GymNation costs low, and we pass on these savings through fantastically low and flexible gym memberships.


We encourage all members to bring their gym own towels, but don't worry if you forget, we have GymNation towels available for purchase within our gym vending machines.

Do you have WIFI?

WiFI is available within all GymNation locations for FREE!


Is there free parking?

YES! We have an ample amount of free onsite parking for all GymNation Downtown Mall members.

What are your opening hours?

All GymNation locations are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year, so you will never miss a workout again!

When will the Gym open?

GymNation Downtown will open in mid summer 2020 and an official opening date will be confirmed in due course.

Will you have separate ladies only area/classes?

Yes and Yes. As with all of our gyms, GymNation Downtown will have a dedicated ladies only section accessible directly from the ladies only changing room. We will also run separate ladies only group exercises classes on a daily basis.

Can I pause/freeze my membership?

GymNation memberships can only be paused in specific situations (eg injury, pregnancy) upon providing valid medical proof from your GP/Doctor.

Is there a contract?

The GymNation fixed term membership is based on a 12 month agreement period.

What happens if I don’t like the gym once it is open and want a refund?

That won't happen! You will love GymNation Downtown but in the very unlikely event that you don't, you will have a 14 day period from when we open to let us know. In that case we will cancel your membership and issue a refund on the first membership payment you have made.

What happens if I want to quit the gym in the future?

We understand that the UAE is a transient place and therefore, if you are relocating out of the country or have a medical issue then we can support you in cancelling your GymNation membership.


Valid proof such as a relocation letter from your HR team, or a medical note from your doctor/GP must be shown to our team in order for the cancellation to be processed.

What’s the minimum age for a membership?

You must be 16 years old at the time of joining to become a GymNation member. We do also offer classes for younger participants, so please check with the team if this is of interest to you or your children.


When will I be charged next?

If you are lucky enough to have secured one of our Founder Membership rates then you will not be charged again at all until the month after we open.


The first payment you have made not only secures your Founder Membership rate, but also covers your first month GymNation Downtown membership.
