About Optimal

Past, present and future

Gym, Sports Therapy centre and café


In 2010 Paul Cracknell and Marco Caporilli started optimalFitness with just two rooms in Building 3 in Studio City - a gym and a group exercise studio.

Over the years they have extended the gym, added a second studio, launched a healthy café and established optimalTHERAPY and optimalGOLF.


Our Studio City location is now central within a very extensive residential area including Arabian Ranches, Damac Hills, Mudon, Town Square, Sports City, Motor City, Victory Heights and Layan. We offer a neighbourhood community fitness and therapy centre providing a variety of quality services and products.

Our trainers and GX instructors ensure that there is a fitness option for everyone within a welcoming environment, whilst our therapy centre provides the community with all their prehab and rehab needs. The optimal café also offers a cosy environment for a healthy breakfast or lunch.

We aspire to be the best holistic health centre in the region with our specialists in fitness, nutrition and therapy working together to ensure an optimal experience for all our clients.

We are currently planning an extension to our therapy centre which will include five new treatment rooms and a dedicated rehabilitation room.
