UN1T - Dubai Hills

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The UN1T Story

UN1T was founded in 2017 by Rob Smyth, who took his vast experience in fitness and training to create an effective and efficient 12-week cycle. The first location opened in London, with an international franchise opening in Munich just over a year later.

The popular strength and conditioning franchise has since expanded into other markets such as Australia and the Middle East, with more territories due to open soon.

How Did UN1T Dubai Hills Score Overall?

The full client experience at UN1T Dubai Hills was impressive achieving The Fit Guide 4-Star Award.

The class was industry-leading, winning our highest accolade, our 5-Star Class Experience Award.

The Highlights

The class experience was top-tier and stood out as a highlight of our visit. The two-coach combo worked well as it offered more opportunities to give individual coaching and feedback. There was a strong sense of community in the club and the brand presence throughout the club was impactful.

What Our Evaluator Had To Say

“The class was fun and had a simple, easy-to-follow structure.”

“It was clear that I was working out at a UN1T club! The branding was on point and consistent throughout the studio.”

“The community vibes were strong and I really felt welcome, with staff and customers alike encouraging me to come back.”

What to Expect From A UN1T Dubai Hills Session

At UN1T, they “ train as one”. The community-focused classes offer strength-based workouts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with more conditioning-heavy classes on Tuesday and Thursday. Their programming is offered in 12-week phases, split into four weeks of hypertrophy, four weeks of strength work and four weeks of power.

Sessions are 60 minutes long and use machines such as rowers, air bikes and SkiErgs for the conditioning component, and free weights such as barbells, kettlebells and dumbbells for the strength work.

Stats and weights are recorded and tracked using UN1T’s technology to ensure your performance is heading in the right direction.

The Reception Service

Both our call to the club and our check-in service on arrival lacked energy. After the session, the team was unsure of the package options, although the coach was friendly and engaged when the reception staff asked him to help out.

The Class Experience

UN1T Dubai Hills has achieved The Fit Guide 5-Star Class Experience award for an exceptional class, putting it amongst the very best in Dubai and the industry.

The class was a very enjoyable, positive and fun experience. It was well-structured and ran very smoothly, with a strong community vibe. It was great to see both coaches and regular members making an attempt to get to know us and encouraging us to come back. This significantly enhanced the experience.

Both coaches made a real effort to connect before, during and after the class, asking about what we did in Dubai and asking about our training experience. All this contributed to an impressive and fun class experience that left us wanting to return.

The Equipment And Studio

Overall, everything was in excellent condition and clean. There was a very strong sense of brand throughout the entire studio, with large and small logos and a consistent black and white color scheme.

The Facilities And Public Areas

Towels and lockers were not available, although there were free water refill stations and open shelves for bags. Showers were available at the club.

The public areas looked good and were well-branded with UN1T logos and features. The spaces were clean and fresh.

Digital And Technology

The booking process was smooth and the website was easy to navigate. Screens around the studio outlined the structure of the workout, as well as timers for each section of the workout, which helped keep us on track.
