DUBAI: If you’re the kind who gives up on your fitness goals because you get bored of the same routine, this is perhaps just what you need. GuavaPass, a Singaporean fitness app and Classport, a UAE-based app can get you access to over 160 fitness studios in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, for prices starting from as little as Dh279 a month.

What this means is that you could be doing a hot yoga session on Sunday, kick boxing on Monday and even horse riding on Tuesday. On GuavaPass, you can do two or even three classes at different studios. “The great thing about the membership is that you can use it in any of the 10 GuavaPass markets - so Dubai members can use their membership not only in the UAE, but also in Singapore, Bangkok, Manila, Hong Kong and other places,” said Thais Kelly, studio relationship manager at GuavaPass Dubai.

Great motivator

According to Kelly, users can also add their friends and family to see what they have been up to. “It’s always a great way to motivate each other and also do some of these actviities together.”

The apps boast of over 3,500 monthly subscribers. Karina Benseman, 38, trainer at 1SIX8 UAE, a boutique gym in Jumeirah 1, said, “In a class of 15, we reserve at least 10-12 spots for people who use our facilities via the apps. Doing barre one day, aqua spinning the next day and so on not just challenges your body to use different muscle groups but also gives the ‘used’ muscles some much deserved rest.”

A Classport user who just finished her ‘mountain climbing’ session at Adventure HQ in Al Quoz said, “I’ve managed to lose 15 kilograms in the last six months thanks to this value-for-money concept.”
