    Gyms in Doha Qatar

    Hello there,

    I recently moved to Doha. Can anyone recommend a decent gym that doesn't cost an arm & a leg? The gyms here are the worst I've ever seen and I'm hoping someone can give me the directions to a good gym that will allow me to squat, bench & deadlift heavy.
    Thanks a lot.

    No, just a job in the city centre. I have heard that the military base gym is very good, however it's too far from me & I doubt I would be allowed into it.

    You wouldnt be allowed on the base. And Doha is not a cheap place to live. Anything that would attract expats is expensive there.

    Yes it seems that not only are the gyms appalling, they're also a rip off and close on the weekends (who the **** closes a gym on the weekend!!!!). Looks like I'm going to have to just buy a barbell, squat rack & plates & hope that I will be allowed put it somewhere in my apartment. I thought that seeing as Qatar had a weightlifting team in the past, surely there must be some facility that caters for weightlifting. If anyone living in Doha has some sort of home gym set-up, knows of one or has any contacts that are interested in powerlifting/weight lifting, please let me know as this place truely sucks.
    Thanks again.

    The Golds gym is not an actual 'Golds' gym. They call it that because it has a silly Gold dome on it!

    Sorry to necro the thread. I ended up joining Qatar Fitness Centre at Al Muntazah myself. They are closed on Fridays and only open from 8 a.m. to midnight, but atleast they have two squat racks and price is quite reasonable comparitively.
