Fitness First Programmes:


Bringing to life a new fitness philosophy centred on Dynamic Movement Training, FGT is a perfect blend of aerobic and anaerobic exercise that utilises the body’s natural movement and is proven to be at least 50% more effective than fixed machine training for strength, speed, endurance and flexibility. Interactive and energetic, FGT challenges the body to work in progression to improve your fitness levels - fitness that suits your life.


Exclusive to Fitness First, ‘The Ultimate Fitness Firster’ is dubbed ‘the ultimate body changer’. Designed for every level of fitness, TUFF is training vs exercise, using interval max training that boils down to an enormously exciting workout with shorter periods and less recovery time - guaranteeing an optimum calorie burn. Tailored for individuals, this functional training enhances overall fitness levels and helps achieve personal fitness goals.


We all have fitness goals, but may not necessarily train ourselves like extreme fitness enthusiasts. Xfit is graded for everyone from novices, athletes and professionals, to students looking to recharge their lives with concrete fun. Xfit is an intense strength and conditioning program including core exercises like Olympic lifting, barbell exercises, traditional gymnastic movements and body weight exercises to get individuals to achieve their maximum potential of fitness and endurance within the minimum time frame. So whatever your fitness goals, it will work for you.


Food intake is a major factor in achieving your fitness goals. You are what you eat! However, it is also important to realise that what you need to eat depends on who you are. People respond differently to the same food and combining nutrition and fitness can be a struggle for many. Respecting these differences is the key to reaching your goals and achieving fitness. Nutrition by Fitness First is a breakthrough holistic approach that determines each participant’s unique response to food and exercise, and is the region’s leading scientifically-backed nutritional consultation and meal delivery service. Whether you are looking at gaining, losing or maintaining weight, body building, athlete oriented food plans or even lifestyle related health issues such as diabetes-management, Nutrition by Fitness First offers an expert-led initiative specific to you.


Established in January 2014, the programme is designed for all ages and abilities with over 200 classes operating across Dubai and Abu-Dhabi. The swim academy includes learn-to-swim, stroke development and a competitive swim squad, with full teen & adult programmes, including fitness sessions.


MYZONE is a new innovative heart rate based system that uses wireless and cloud technology to accurately and conveniently monitor physical activity. MYZONE monitors heart rate, calories and time spent exercising that converts into MYZONE Effort Points (MEPs), with a focus on rewarding effort rather than fitness. MYZONE users simply wear a comfortable MYZONE Physical Activity Belt (heart rate strap), which is registered online, to monitor all concerted physical activity in real time, allowing users to view their progress in their personal account. It enhances enjoyment of physical activity by providing personal, colour-coded guidance and motivational feedback both inside and outside.
