Most Fitness Professionals are currently linked to Free Zone visas and Free zone licenses or entities who provide visas in the UAE from licenses that are not matching the activities and EBBF regulatory body requirements.
It is important that for example, all personal trainers must hold the designation of Sports Trainers in their Visa and the company must hold activities specific to their services like male & female gymnasium, bodybuilding and fitness training, etc.
It is also important to have a visa linked to an onshore license and not a free zone license as a visa under labour allows you to operate anywhere onshore and offshore as long as you meet all regulatory requirements.
As a certified instructor, the Fitness Inkubator is here to ensure you can practice your trade with no hiccups and concentrate on your core business, while we provide the additional support with Professional indemnity coverage, back-office and invoicing support and the required legal compliance.
