Signing up for a gym?

By ThomasSoerensen

Hi

I will be arriving to Doha next week. Where is there a good gym where I can use a treadmill for running?

Is there usually a limit on running on the treadmill, ie. 30minutes maximum time? Is there a gym without these limits.

I look so much forward to going to Doha.

Fitness First Gym... most convenient location ever, right at the 4th floor of Doha City Center, where you can shop as well, nice place, cool staffs, 'got everything from free wifi, lounge, sauna/steam room, you can even get any DVD's you want.. (of course you have to returned it back for others).

One of the best gyms in Doha is the one at Al Dana Club. It is about 10000 per year/family membership. it is clean,well maintained and it has a good variety of machines. However I signed in for a month during summer at Gold Gym and I am very disappointed.The A.C. works only in the aerobic room! The T.V.s have no sound, the tread mills have no headphone conection, their sauna and steam room are out of order and rarely have towels. For 550 per month I don't recommend it.

Thomas,

Some of the newer apartment compounds have gyms in them. I've seen a very nice gym setup in a compound off of Salwa.

I haven't been to Gold's Gym on D-Ring, but I understand that you can get 10 single day passes for 370 riyals (roughly $10 US per visit). I'm not sure what the full membership fee is, but $10 per trip sounds high when gym memberships in the states could be obtained for as little as $35 per month.

Yearly memberships can be bought for access to hotel facilities, but these may be fairly pricy too. If money is no object then looking at hotel memberships is probably where you'll find the nicest facilities. Some hotels may offer day passes so that you can check things out and compare.

European Family Club (Garvey's) has gym facilities, but I haven't made use of them as of yet (Individual memberships are about 800 riyals annually and family 1200 I think).

You may want to make use of the nice weather while we have it to walk or run outside, in which case everyone would recommend the corniche. When the weather gets brutally hot in a few months though, you'll want a nice indoor treadmill.

Most of the clubs (like Al-Dana, etc.) have threadmills. Usually if it isn't busy they don't mind you staying on
