The 500,000 square foot destination features two floors of indoor fitness space, an Olympic sized swimming pool and 1,400 metre running track…

Dubai has no shortage of brilliant indoor and alfresco facilities but a brand new one has just arrived at Meydan – and it’s arguably the city’s largest.

The 500,000 square foot spot, Max & Aegle, is described as an ‘innovative wellness destination’ and has been purpose-built to offer fitness solutions for ‘the mind, body and soul’.

So what’s there?

Inside, the fitness area is spread across two floors and boasts designated cardio, weight training and circuit areas, while group exercise classes will be held in dedicated studios for HIIT, boxing, yoga and cycling.

Outside, an Olympic size swimming pool and kids’ splash pool are set within a shaded relaxation deck. There is also a 1,400 metre running track, two dedicated areas for outdoor fitness training and athletics, and a large yoga lawn offering some brilliant views onto the Downtown skyline.

As well as offering fitness solutions to its members, unique to Max & Aegle is its keen focus on the principles of Macro Health™, a term which it has trade-marked, and which represents a new way of delivering dynamic health solutions for the mind, body and soul.

A new healthy eating restaurant will also be added to the facility in the coming weeks.

Although it has capacity for a whopping 5000 members, the team behind the project will cap this at 2000, to ensure members can benefit fully from their visit.

The membership experience at Max & Aegle starts with an initial Fit3D Pro Body scan – with its state-of-the-art body composition analysis – which helps to determine the best approach to attaining fitness and optimal health. Industry-leading coaches then work closely with each member to choose the ideal programme for them to lay the foundations for a new way of delivering total health solutions.

Max and Aegle, Meydan, Dubai, now open.
