GymNation has been recognised in Tripadivsor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards for 2024 / GymNation
GymNation is pleased to announce today that it has been recognized in Tripadivsor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards for 2024. The award honors businesses that consistently earn great reviews, placing them among the top 10% of listings around the world on Tripadvisor.

As the world’s largest travel guidance platform, Tripadvisor has unparalleled authority with travelers and diners. This award is based on genuine feedback from anyone in the community who has visited and left an authentic, first-hand review on Tripadvisor over a 12-month period, making it a valuable and trustworthy designation of great places to visit.

“Congratulations to GymNation on its recognition in Tripadvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards for 2024,” said John Boris, Chief Growth Officer at Tripadvisor. “Travelers’ Choice honors businesses that consistently demonstrate a commitment to hospitality excellence.

"This means you have made such a memorable impact on your visitors that many of them took the time to go online and leave a great review about their experience. People rely on Tripadvisor’s Travelers’ Choice seal to help them navigate the myriad of things to see, eat and do across the globe. We hope this recognition continues to drive business to you in 2024 and beyond.”

Ant Martland, CCO of GymNation added "Having recently been awarded The UAE's Best Gym for residents for the 2nd time in a row on Virgin Radio's The Kris Fade Show, it's now great to follow this up with a Tripadvisor Travelers' Award to show we are also the firm favourite for visitors coming to the UAE.

"Our reputation for providing affordable access to world-class facilities, has spread internationally, and we look forward to continuing to welcome more visitors into unmatchable GymNation facilities across the UAE and KSA over the next year."

GymNation is a community to support everyone, to celebrate and inspire each other to become better versions of themselves, by living happier, healthier and more active lives.
Plans for the next 12 months
Today, GymNation stands at 12 open UAE locations, with 12 more locations in fit-out across the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

Once these locations mature we will reach 23 gyms and over 150,000 members, and with many more in the pipeline our aim is to become the largest gym chain across the GCC.

Behind the scenes, we’re diligently advancing our position as a world leading operator in the integration of technology, artificial intelligence, and data analytics.

Our commitment extends beyond mere application, aiming to spearhead discussions and set benchmarks within the fitness industry and beyond, ensuring GymNation remains at the cutting edge of innovation.

We’re not just building gyms; our vision is to play a lead role as the region’s movement partner, championing healthy and active lifestyles alongside the importance of mental health and well-being.
