BARE Debuts in Dubai: The First Nutrition Focused Fitness Club
Bare, the first fitness club in Dubai to focus on nutrition and fat-loss has debuted, much to the delight of throngs individuals seeking a holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle.

It was this knowledge that drove Dylan to bring together two totally independent industries – the weight-loss and fitness industries.
