With everything that’s happened in the past year there’s never been a bigger focus on health and wellness. Now, there’s one more reason to get into exercise as free access to top Dubai gyms will be granted to Dubai residents who have had both doses of their Covid-19 vaccine.

The initiative, launched with the hashtag #EveryoneResponsibleForEveryone, was introduced today, May 2 by The Dubai Sports Council. Dubai residents who have had both doses of the vaccine can visit top gyms such as Gold’s Gym, Fitness First, The Warehouse, Fitness 360, The Sevens, Just Play, and Zabeel Ladies Club.

You’ll be able to enjoy the free access to the gyms between Monday, May 3 and Thursday, May 13. The news was announced via Dubai Sports Council’s official Twitter and Instagram page, saying that 55 gyms and fitness centres are taking part, however it is not yet clear exactly which ones they are.

Free gym access will be granted to those who can produce a Covid-19 vaccination certificate approved by the Ministry of Health and Prevention or the Dubai Health Authority. It follows a recent similar campaign in which vaccinated residents could exercise for free for 15 days during Ramadan.

The Dubai Sports Council said, “The pioneering initiative has been launched to encourage members of the community to embrace a physically active lifestyle, through proper guidance from some of fitness industry’s biggest names. The initiative also rewards all the members of the community who have received their full dose of Covid-19 vaccines.”
