I'm going to be honest - I came across Symmetry on someone's facebook profile, saw that the first 'trial' session/consultation was free and thought i'd go have a look to see for myself what all the hoo-haa about "most expensive trainer in dubai" was all about. Here's some more honesty - I signed up when Alex, the charismatic managing partner, told me about the 1 month money back guarantee. "Hah - perfect. A month of free training!" i thought to myself.
That was one year ago. Obviously things didn't quite work out as I had planned!
I've been fairly active most of my adult life and played a number of sports at inter-varsity level. But then you join the workforce, have less and less time for yourself and before you know it, you look down and the view of your laces is obstructed. Shirts suddenly start showing skin between the buttons and your trouser buttons are clinging on for dear life. Determined to get back into shape, i tried everything. I tried the cookie cutter box gyms, boot camps, very expensive personal trainers, even boxing. While i had mixed results, none of them proved sustainable. And after a while, the fat came back.
Symmetry has been an absolute revelation. I am stronger than i have ever been and as fit as I felt in a very very long time. More importantly, I feel it is sustainable. Amir has changed my understanding of nutrition. While i cant cover it all here, let me just put it this way - i eat just about everything i want to eat. No food item is off the menu. But i have much more awareness of what i am eating, what affect it will have on me, and what i need to do to maintain a "caloric deficit". It all means I'm happier, able to control my cravings (I have a wicked sweet tooth) and am less and less likely to binge eat after months of control - the classic dieter's downfall.
The training - Amir's Fission-Fusion method - is INTENSE. But its not tough for the sake of being tough (i'm looking at you bootcamp) your program is customized to YOU...it takes into account your strengths, weaknesses, any injuries you may have, your goals, and your nutrition. And this means that your chances of success suddenly went up a couple of notches. Slowly but surely, you will see yourself making lifestyle changes that will have a material impact on your results. Another Amir-ism for you - "You never train in the same body twice".
The trainers are brilliant - they are an amazing bunch and great to have a laugh with. But when the clock starts ticking for your session, you better go hard, or go home. They'll push you to your absolute limits, all under the watchful eye of Amir, and you'll surprise yourself by going longer, harder more often than you could ever imagine. Amir himself is a great guy - rumor has it that it he was once caught smiling in a rare moment of weakness. Jokes aside, don't let his physical appearance throw you - he has a heart of gold and genuinely cares about his clients. And he's a geek - which is good for you - because that means he's devoured just about every single book, article, research on fitness, nutrition and body mechanics out there. And he likes to share that knowledge whether you like it or not. As a client, be prepared to have a lot of your pre-conceived notions about fitness and nutrition blown away.
Last but not least, Symmetry knows how to make YOU the client feel special. The customer service is excellent and the attention to detail will take you by surprise. From the welcome packs to the random movie nights (symmetry once booked out the ENTIRE Gold Class at Vox in MOE for its clients to watch Godzilla - ALL paid for including food and drinks), to the amazing Social events - they know how to put a smile on your face.
Yes it is expensive, but think of it an an investment. Its a mind shift I know. But give it a try - you have nothing to lose and EVERYTHING to gain. Its a no-brainer.
Training at Symmetry is the best part of my day. I have been with them for more than a year and have the body I always wanted! I love my lean and defined arms and back, my redefined glutes and legs… and best of all, my 6-pack! Not only is the training fantastic with programs designed just for me, but they also help with nutrition and lifestyle changes to really help you succeed. Even when I come in grumpy or stressed, I enjoy every minute of being pushed by my Coach. The staff are so friendly and supportive and they just know me. They are a little bit nutty and keep it really fun; it’s just a great place to be. I honestly don’t know how people enjoy Dubai without Symmetry :-D
I highly recommend Symmetry Gym for people looking for an intense, effective, tailor-made workout. The only intention is - get fit, get healthy and get your results.
I've completed 8 month there and I've never been that happy with a gym before. I used to come to Rashid Hospital each week cause of numerous problems with my back, pain etc. Now it's all in the past! My body changed a lot, from skinny 46 kg I've got 52 kg trained and healthy body. And it's only the start!
br>Symmetry team is brilliant. They're all great. They'll help you out if you can't keep up, you don't have to worry cause they know what you can do and will only push you as far as you can go. Depending on your goals, they will guide you on the right path which includes a meal plan. This is a place to put in work. You will get results quicker and you will be amazed by how your body looks and feels.
Symmetry facilities are great! Towels and water provided, free parking, numerous gifts, rewards, gatherings and challenges.
You are going to come here and workout harder then you ever have in your life. If you are serious about getting in shape, this is the place to come to!
I have never been a person that goes to the gym. I have tried and failed many times before however, I was finding myself getting bigger and bigger with less and less muscle tone. I had just moved to Dubai and this time I was determined to find a gym where I felt comfortable in, was a valued member and guided every step of the way.
Well, this is exactly what I have found while being a member of Symmetry Gym. Choosing Symmetry Gym has been the best decision I could have possibly made. What other gym can you go to where all the trainers know your name?
During my initial free consultation, Alex sat down with me and discussed why I wanted to join their gym, what was I expecting to get out of it and my fitness goals for the near future. It was serious; this gym is serious. I have been going three times a week for the last three months and I am still 100% motivated by the intense workouts that are continually adapted to keep me working as hard as possible.
I can honestly say in the last three months I have never dreaded going to the gym for a workout. I look forward to it knowing that I will be supported the entire time. If you are looking for a serious place to push yourself and get results, this is the place to go.
I have always been an active person and have had many personal trainers in the past. Three years ago I got a very bad back injury in the gym and stopped all my exercises. I was even scheduled for surgery which I refused last minute. Having three slipped disks didn't allow me to go to any gym and train with any trainer.
I joined Symmetry gym as they have extensive knowledge about different injuries. What really got me interested to begin with is the fact that the trainers gave me all the same do's and don'ts as my doctor and physiotherapist.
The exercises at the gym are made for me to really strengthen my back while I achieve my goal of losing weight. Also the programs change every few weeks which makes training very interesting.
I love Symmetry and because of the attention given to my back I would never change trainers. My trainer is always watching my posture very closely while I do my exercises and changes them immediately when my back starts to slightly hurt. I enjoy working out more than ever before and totally recommend Symmetry to everyone, even those who have serious injuries.
