We strive to provide exceptional coaching, quality education, and valuable information to the CrossFit community and all guests of CrossFit Alioth. Our deepest goal is to lead members to their highest peak in fitness and in life.
CrossFit Alioth opened its doors in Dubai, UAE in 2016 with a goal to help athletes reach their full potential no matter their fitness background or goals. We utilize the CrossFit training methodology to empower athletes with the proper knowledge of functional movements and varying intensities.
We are a team of dedicated staff members who take pride in your experience as soon as you walk through the door. From our front desk staff, coaches, and management; our goal is to help you reach your highest peak, and your fullest potential. We do this through quality coaching, detailed instruction, and a keen focus on our Alioth community. Your fitness journey is unique to you- so we provide a gym experience that encourages growth and challenges you in various ways; all while having fun throughout the process.
What Is "Alioth"
Alioth is a term coined by astrologists for a star located on the big dipper. The Alioth, or Epsilon Ursae Majoris, is located on the tail of the Greater Bear (Ursa Major). However the third star from the end, Alioth, relates to a black horse- not a bear.
We drew from Arabic inspiration during the branding of this CrossFIt gym, located in Dubai, considerably the heart of the Middle East. In arabic, black horses are representative of strength, power and beauty. In the constellation, the alioth star is the brightest; or strongest light in the sky.
At CrossFit Alioth we strive to help athletes reach their highest and brightest peak; whatever that may be to them. While stars such as these, just like lofty goals, seem to be unreachable you find with a little help- through quality coaching (or a telescope) that a lot more can be accomplished and envisioned than first expected.
We are strong proponents of the CrossFit training methodology not because it is a popular method, but because we have witnessed the results and truly believe that it works. By utilizing constantly varied, functional movements, performed at high intensity, we are able to challenge your fitness while helping you gain muscular and cardiovascular strength over time. Our classes and coaches will encourage you to reach your full potential during every workout. You may also find that you become more interested in the “why” behind this training style, and become even more dedicated to living your best life in and out of the gym.
