Prepare to get your sweat on at this gym-meets-nightclub…

They’re self-described as London’s ‘king of gyms’, and now renowned fitness studio 1Rebel is set to open its doors in Dubai. The brand’s first branch will open its doors this October inside DIFC’s ICD Brookfield Place, inviting fitness fans to get their sweat on across an 11,500 square foot space.

The new 1Rebel Dubai has the same part fitness studio, part nightclub feel of its UK counterparts, and centres around two of their signature high-intensity workouts: Reshape and Ride. The brand is synonymous with pairing fast-paced workouts with LED strobe lights and epic playlists, so you can be assured of a full body workout in a fun-filled environment. Reshape will offer a mix of treadmill and weights, while Ride is 1Rebel’s twist on a spin class. The DIFC studio will also be home to the brand’s first and only open gym floor, where you’ll be able to lead your own workout using TechnoGym equipment, free-weights and the strength zone.

Launch prices

If you’re among the first to sign up to 1Rebel Dubai, you’ll get a 20 per cent discount on founding memberships. Giving unlimited access to classes and the gym floor, you’ll pay either Dhs1,040 per month if you sign up for six-months, or Dhs1,440 per month for a rolling monthly contract. Stay tuned for the sign-up offer going live very soon.

Elsewhere at ICD Brookfield

When it opens in October, 1Rebel will be in good company in the swanky ICD Brookfield building. Already home to private members club The Arts Club, new additions will come in the form of fun-dining French restaurant Josette, from the hospitality masterminds behind Il Borro and Alici; and Tom Arnel’s hotly anticipated opening, The Guild. While DIFC will be the first branch of 1Rebel in the UAE, there are already plans for a second in Dubai Marina. 1Rebel will bring its high-paced workouts to W Dubai – Mina Seyahi early next year. Stay tuned…
