The owners of the kids gym said that the inspiration came from HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum’s aim to improve the health of those in Dubai. The owners have worked to create a place with affordable family fun in mind, feeling that this was a good business idea with a worthwhile goal.

The facility can accommodate up to 1,000 members and there are annual memberships available. There are plans to open a further two Little Gladiator locations in Dubai throughout the rest of the year.
