I had a sneak peek tour at new Oxygen Gym in Jabriya which is located next to Champions health club on 4th ring road, it will open in a few days and subscription will cost KD50/Month and I gotta say it worth the money after what I saw. Inside I met with the owner Mr. Bader Bodai and had chance to ask him questions about the gym and facilities.
I find Oxygen gym as one of the most successful (and busiest) Men gyms in Kuwait, what I like about it is that it offers decent facilities for a reasonable price, also the trainers are always there to help. The new Jabriya branch has a totally new concept and has much better design and facilities than the older branches.
As I stepped inside the interior design caught my attention, mind the low quality pictures since my DSLR camera wasn’t with me. The interior design looked unique with dimmed lighting and dark theme, the design felt it had “Masculine” feeling. The workout area is one of the biggest that I’ve seen, also the cardio area had tons of treadmills and bikes. The gym was built on three levels with two elevators, ground floor had the reception, cafeteria, supplements shop, locker room, swimming pool; 2nd floor had the cardio area, leg machines, spinning area, aerobics area, and 3rd floor has the main workout area.
The facilities are as follow:
Workout area: 1,800 sq.meter and there were tons of machines.
Spinning area: 180 sq.meter with many spinning machines.
Aerobics area: 240 sq. meter
Swimming Pool: 21 x 10 meters
Air Massage room
Number of treadmills: 45
Number of bikes: 20
Number of stair machines: 8
Hot & Cold Jacuzzi
Outdoor Cafe & Tan area
“It took us long time and massive efforts to make this gym, we had to choose every machine, all equipment were carefully selected and we tried to introduce many new ideas and concepts that weren’t there before” said Bader Bodai. I was impressed with the design and large training areas, my only concern is about accessibility to Jabriya.
