Okay it’s hot!! And although we’re all about being adventurous outdoors it gets to a point where it really is too hot to do a lot of the activities we would normally do. Yes, we could keep going on about how great wakeboarding and kitesurfing are in the summer months, and how being in the water is a great way to keep cool, but for some of you this just isn’t a consistent option.
Therefore to stay active during this peak summer period we’ve listed 3 of our favourite indoor Dubai activities that are both fun and will keep you in great shape.
If you haven’t been to Bounce yet, or you think it’s just a few trampolines for kids, then you’re missing out!
Bounce has a vast arena of trampolines and different activities including the free jump arena, Slam Dunk (basketball hoops), the Big Bag, the Wall and our personal favourite…Dodge Ball! On entry you’re free to mix it up with any of these activities you like, and not only that but Bounce staff are on hand to teach you new tricks and techniques as you go.
If you’ve been to Bounce before you’ll know that it’s not just a lot of fun but also a pretty intense workout too. Bounce have recognized this and have introduced different programs to take part in, including Bounce Fit (which is sure to get you in amazing shape), Flight Academy and Bounce Ladies (that’s right, Monday nights are dedicated to the ladies only!)
Gravity DXB is a relatively new open space gym located in Al Quoz that is dedicated to the art of Calisthenics. We say gym in the loosest of terms as it’s not your typical gym full of weights and machinery.
If you haven’t heard of calisthenics before it simply refers to a form of exercise where you use the weight of your own body to build strength and muscle. It’s also a really fun way to discover the true capabilities of your body and enable you to do things you never thought possible.
If Calisthenics doesn’t sound like your thing though, don’t worry, also on offer at Gravity DXB are parkour and yoga classes as well as a dedicated ladies night on Mondays.

Rock Republic is the UAEs first and only indoor bouldering facility. What we personally love about bouldering is that it’s more accessible than traditional climbing, free of scary climbing ropes and restrictions, you can literally jump on and give it a go. Don’t worry, the height of the walls only reaches 4.5 metres at a maximum and there are of course thick safety mats underneath.
It’s a huge amount of fun that people of all ages tend to love. What’s also great about it is it’s a serious workout and if you start to do it consistently you’ll find yourself getting into great shape!
