From the team behind the award-winning The Platform Studios in Dubai Marina comes The Platform Studios DIFC, a 10,000-square-foot fitness centre that fuses cutting-edge equipment with the latest in wellness technology. The purpose-built DIFC studio, now open in Index Tower, is the biggest group-class, workout studio concept to launch in the UAE, says co-founder Stewart Miller.

“We are passionate about bringing the best exercise experiences to people’s lives and our Marina studio is a testament to this. It has become the heartbeat of the community and we wanted to recreate this in Downtown Dubai, but with even more amplified facilities,” he says. 

It’ll have one of the city’s most varied, and packed, schedules, with more than 1000 classes each week and over 40 different activities to choose from.

Split between five specially designed studios, fitness fans will be able to attend classes such as HIIT, pilates, boxing, spin and a unique 30×30 Mix It Up class, which is two 30-minute classes back-to-back.

Fitness studios are filled with the latest equipment including aqua boxing bags, the latest Technogym bikes, skill run treadmills and rowers.

As well as studios, Platform Studios DIFC will be home to a Cryotherapy treatment room, live DJ facilities that broadcast to all of the studios, fingerprint scan class check-ins, and easy online and in-app class bookings. Sounds very futuristic.

To celebrate opening, The Platform Studios will be offering a special introductory pack of two classes for Dhs105. Plus, all class packages bought between now and Saturday November 30 will be doubled in value. So, if you buy a pack of 10 classes for Dhs1,067, you’ll get an additional 10, or buy a pack of 20 for Dhs2,027, and you’ll actually get 40 classes.
