According to an Instagram comment on the video, the GymNation team is implementing “everything necessary to ensure we are the cleanest and safest gym in the UAE.”

Aside from upgrading and sanitizing their gyms through and through, safety measures will also be set in place, which includes temperature checks for everyone entering the facility.

This may also include operating only at a certain capacity and limiting the number of hours spent at the venue. Additionally, gym equipment will have to be sanitized in between uses, and extra cleaning and sanitation would also be set in place.


In mid-March, UAE authorities have announced the temporary closure of cinemas, theme parks, amusement and electronic game centers, bodybuilding/fitness gyms and spring camps, as part of the country’s efforts to safeguard public health against the highly contagious viral disease that has reached a global scale and has claimed the lives of hundreds and thousands of lives all over the world.
