Smile Gyms in Dubai (Advice Please)

Dear Forum,

My wife and I are thinking to go and get a gym membership in Dubai. Do you have any advice as to which ones are good/well priced etc? We want to be able to exercise together (in the same room), so we want one where that's possible.

In terms of location, anything near or close to the Al Mullah Plaza would be nice.

Thanks a lot !

-David

There was a gym my husband was going to enroll along here in Jumeirah 1 but I didn't like the ambience of the place, but we found a very nice gym in one of the landmark hotels along the Shik Ziyed Road. Hope this helped you

Has anyone heard of or used the Sharjah Wanderer's Club?

We are thinking to use that one.

Thanks,

David
