Q. Can non-members participate in classes?
A. You do not have to be a member to enjoy your time at THE ROOM Abu Dhabi! Non-members can pay a pop-in fee for each class, as often as they’d like.

Membership offers a great value, with multi-class and monthly options to suit everyone.
Q. What if I think I’m not fit enough to start exercising?

Q. What activities do you have for men and are there separate sessions for ladies?
A. There are group classes for everybody to try. Spinning® is popular with men, as well as circuit training and pump, and there are lots of other options to help you get in shape. For women, several classes a week are marked as Ladies Only.
Q. What’s different about your Spinning® classes?
A. The Spinning® programme is run by Power Specialist Master Instructor Peter Pastijn. With years of experience, he is one of the most renowned Master Instructors of the Spinning® programme.
