INSIDE THE WORLD’S MOST UNAFFORDABLE TRAINING PLAN

Amir Siddiqui tells it like it is.

He didn’t come to the UAE to help the country get fit or lose weight (although, that is a helpful byproduct), he did so to make money. Since then has earned a reputation as one of Dubai’s most effective – and expensive – trainers.

Siddiqui runs Symmetry Gym to Rich And Fit Personal Training, often touted as Dubai’s most expensive. There’s a reason for that; mainly that the private gym only offers one-on-one training sessions with some of the region’s best fitness experts.

The gym also specializes in building fitness systems, and most recently put together a 28-day plan that costs a whopping US$9,800 (AED36,000) with no money back guarantee.

We sat down with Siddiqui in this month’s Esquire Q&A podcast to ask about the merits of this radical new system and the mistakes people make when getting fit.
