The good thing about living in the UAE is that it’s always summer and beach-bod weather, which means your motivation to get fit is all year round. But staying motivated is hard . The couch’s cosy siren call is hard to ignore and the gym with its many machines is so intimidating. Plus it’s scorching out, so a run’s out of the question. And what’s with calorie counting?
Wouldn’t it just be so much easier if someone followed our every move and told us what to do? Your prayers have been answered by the good folk at FitLov, a personal trainer platform that sends out Dubai’s top personal trainers (PT) to your doorstep to get you in ship shape.
For those of us (guilty) who are too lazy drag themselves to the gym, FitLov’s personal trainers will bring the gym home. If you’re wondering what sets this apart from any other personal training service in Dubai, and let’s be honest there’s a dime-a-dozen of them, here’s the lowdown:
Mobile gym and trainer
FitLov’s pool of trained instructors bring with them bags full of expertise as well as equipment. So, if you prefer to sweat it out solo, you can train in the comfort of your living room. Outdoorsy types will have their PT accompany them – workout equipment and all – to the beach or even a nearby park . What you essentially have here is a mobile gym and personal trainer.
For the gym rats who love the high-octane, structured environment of gyms, FitLov has partnered with gyms that you can access as part of your personal training sessions. 24 Fitness Gym in Al Quoz is one such place.
FitLov is perfect for all fitness levels
Depending on whether you’re an athlete or you’re a rank newbie to the fitness sphere, the trainers at FitLov will address your unique fitness goals, from building muscle to losing weight.
Before you dive into lifting weights and sprinting for that cardio burn, your personal trainer will conduct a body assessment to evaluate what your strengths and weaknesses are. Based on this, they will tweak the intensity and frequency of your workouts and design a tailor-made routine that suits your body.
Flexible timings that fit around your lifestyle
Once you book in for your sessions and state what timings and locations work best for you, your personal trainer will make it happen. Now that’s some celebrity-style service right there!
Trainers are available for sessions from 6am-11 pm, so ‘I can’t find the time to workout’ is no longer going to cut it as an excuse. All you need to do is find 60-minutes in your calendar that you can block out for an hour-long workout and show up with a can-do attitude.
They will be your personal cheerleaders
Okay, so they might yell at you to ensure you power through that final painful rep but hey, they’re also going to applaud and encourage your improvements while holding you accountable every step of the way. You’ll have your PT’s unwavering attention for an hour where they remind you that progress isn’t just measured by how toned your abs have gotten, but it’s also about improving your stamina, becoming stronger, and loving the body you’re in. That’s what makes the personal training journey worth the investment.
Your FitLov purchase includes free nutrition
Speaking of money, you get to choose between one session, three sessions, or a set of five (from AED 299 for one 60-minute session). And irrespective of the plan you choose, the initial body assessment session is thrown in for free. Moreover, FitLov’s qualified nutritionists will also take stock of your diet and create a nourishing personalised meal plan, so you eat well and fuel your body instead of crash dieting.
