The fitness industry in the UAE is booming. No doubt about it.
That’s how and why Ravi Bhusari saw a small gap in the fitness industry, and co-founded Duplays, an online website that helps individuals, teams and/or groups book a facility for a sport they need- around the region.
The success of Duplays was a testament to the need for a service, after which Bhusari conceived the business plan for Nook- a creative co-working space in Dubai that helps wellness and sports entrepreneurs, startups, and freelancers to form a community based on fun, innovation and networking.
Click PLAY below to hear all about why Bhusari felt there was a need for this spaced, the support he received from prominent DMCC official Ahmed bin Sulayem and more:
The fitness and health community in Dubai is booming- and Bhusari’s new concept for Nook directly ties in with that
In Dubai, there are several fitness centres, private trainers, influencers, sports retailers and facilities that all cater to the active lifestyle that the community leads.
Even the government supports the importance of health with annual initiatives that encourage everyone to up their fitness and maintain a healthy lifestyle, like the Dubai Fitness Challenge- where fitness activities for all people took place for THIRTY whole days.
Nook isn’t just a co-working space for people in this industry but it also helps with licensing and visas
So the community is really for anyone looking to move to Dubai for an opportunity or existing residents to be provided the support they need with commercial trade licensing, space and visas.
