Here’s a question that comes up time and time again; “where can I go to work out, lose weight and feel good that won’t break the bank?” Well, here’s your answer! SMART Fitness is a British owned and run multi-award-winning fitness facility in JLT that’s going to knock your wobbly bits off! 

Have you ever enrolled at a gym and dropped out because you lacked motivation? Yep, don’t worry, it’s happened to most of us. After having children and leading the busy lives that we do, it’s understandable if you simply can’t face taking that plunge to get started. The good news is that taking the plunge is the hardest bit of getting back in shape as SMART Fitness understand this completely and so they focus on delivering results in a a fun environment where you WILL feel motivated to transform yourself and get that feel good factor back!

They have recently introduced a 12 week transformation personal training programme which is great if you simply want to lose weight and have an end date in mind to achieve this by or if you have a special occasion coming up such as a wedding, anniversary or a special holiday, they’re able to help you get right to where you want to be. 

They have a straight forward approach concentrating on high quality, results-based, scientific approaches to fitness with no gimmicks at all – just degree qualified, REP’s certified, highly experienced, specialist trainers who are more passionate than you can imagine about supporting you to achieve your goals and more! 

Their main services are personal training and group programmes. Personal training is on a one to one basis or you can train with a partner if your prefer. So if you and your friend are both keen to get started, this is a great option to split the costs out. 

We like the fact that there are several other group programmes too – getting started can sound a bit daunting if you’re body conscious so female only groups are a brilliant way to mix in and find some fab new company in the process. There are male only groups too and even mixed groups if you want to bring hubby along so it’s great that you can choose what suits you best. The groups are limited to a maximum of 10 people and run for 8 weeks. They include 3 sessions per week, a nutrition programme, regular tests and measurements and weekly goal setting. 

In addition, if you’re a mum-to-be or new mummy, they’ve got fab pre and postnatal services that are monthly programmes provided by (wait for it…) a pre and postnatal exercise specialist, a biokineticist and a midwife – how brilliant is that? These sessions are focused on addressing problems we can have in pregnancy such as backache and tiredness, prevention of diastasis recti (abdominal muscle separation) plus increasing strength and endurance as part of preparation for labour. 

The postnatal group concentrates on strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, strengthening core muscles and management of diastasis recti as well as improving posture and management of backache – something most of us have experienced along the way. 

Amongst their many accolades, they have been awarded Best UAE Health and Fitness Facility for the last 2 years running, UAE Best Male AND Best Female Personal Trainer, Mother, Baby and Child Magazine’s Best in Women’s Fitness Award and Gulf Capital SME Awards – Customer Focus of the Year Award – making them a firm British Mums favourite too!
