Despite only opening a few months ago, Meydan’s mega new fitness center Max & Aegle has taken Dubai’s fitness scene by storm. Covering a whopping 500,000 square feet, it has everything you could possibly want from a topnotch gym. Olympic-sized swimming pool? Check. 1,400-meter running track? Check. Yoga lawn with Downtown skyline view? Of course. You can choose to work out indoors or outdoors, and you’ll never feel crammed for space. That’s because, despite being big enough to accommodate up to 5,000 guests, Max & Aegle limits numbers to 2,000 members only.
Inside, you’ll find five specialized indoor training zones that range from conditioning stations to cross-training, functional training, and even martial arts. On top of that, there are countless exercise classes to choose from, with ladies-only options and dedicated kids’ classes. Memberships include a Fit3D Body Scan, a one-month nutrition plan, and a health assessment. To top things off, there’s also a juice bar and restaurant on site, called 100&TEN, that serves up healthy snacks and light bites.
