Become a Member of Fujairah’s Largest Gym and Aquatic Centre

This gym is the most popular in Fujairah, has more members than any other fitness centre on the UAE’s East Coast and people are never asked to sign up or pay membership fees.

It has no opening and closing hours and it’s used all hours of the day and night.

You don’t need special soles on your shoes, only clothing that’s culturally appropriate.

It incorporates the largest swimming pool in the Emirates. It is free of chlorine and it stretches down to Australia and across to Pakistan and India.

The Fujairah Corniche, flanked by the Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean, is a spacious leisure ground and aquatic centre.

It’s a multipurpose facility, where it’s possible to get a good workout on the land before cooling off in the sea.

There are no separate areas but women and men use it just the same.

It is one of the parts of the Emirate where cultures not only meet but they converse with nods and salaams.

It is a place to stretch out the body, walk out your worries, give your mind a spa and your spirit a sauna.

It is wonderful for personal reflection and the place to which people gravitate, especially when they’re homesick and want to spew out their feelings across the waves.

It’s an open-air gym that evokes memories, fires passions and stimulates dreams.

The Fujairah Corniche! Shukran!

Take a Look
Have a look at the amazing workout this guy got on the Fujairah Corniche. It is physical but judging by his concentration, he was limbering up his mental muscles. Here is the photo album.
