Titans Wellness Center: State of the Art Gym in New Cairo
With Titans branches popping up all over Cairo, working out is becoming harder to avoid. Their largest of the branches is located underground, at the back of the ‘Landmark’ building in the up-and-coming Fifth Settlement of New Cairo.

The entrance is found at the bottom of a funny, tunnel-like stairway which sits at the base of a crystal blue, outdoor swimming pool complete with a waterfall. Unfortunately at the time of our visit, although it looked inviting, we decided against a dip as the water was absolutely freezing.

The lobby – and indeed the rest of the gym – uses hues of grey and red with shiny, light-coloured wood floors. The next room is a small but well-stocked juice and snack bar, selling various nutrition bars and of all sorts of branded proteins.

Passing through a set of frosted double-doors lands you on the edge of a vast L-shaped workout area. Cardio machines such as treadmills, cross trainers and exercise bikes are lined up in rows, most with iPads attached to the tops. We’re not sure how easy it is to use an iPad whilst sweating out, but it’s a nice touch for light workout routines.
Moving deeper into the mirrored room, along with various weight machines, are large free-weight stands to one side. Here, the weights range from 2kg to 50kg, perfect for both beginner and advanced weight training. There’s a separate room for group sessions, as well as men and women-only fitness classes, specialising in fat burning, toning and muscle building. They also host ladies-only Zumba and belly dance classes. However, for a general workout, there is no ladies-only area.

In the clean and simple locker rooms, members can also enjoy a private jacuzzi and a sauna. Upstairs, Titans also have a small but adequate squash court. The gym also boasts an onsite doctor and nutritionist to help you achieve your specialised dietary and body building goals.

Titans Wellness Center’s membership packages are offered as  one month (900LE), three months (2300LE), six months (3150LE) and one year (4400LE). A year-long membership is discounted for couples and costs 7800LE for the two. Along with all inclusive facility use and free classes, each package comes with at least one personal training session and a meeting with the nutritionist. After the sessions included in the chosen deal, personal training sessions start at 1500LE for twelve sessions, 2600LE for twenty-four sessions and 3500LE for thirty-six. There are also several different freezing options respective to each length of membership, with the exception of the one month membership.

Titans is one of the more expensive gyms, but it prides itself on offering an entire workout experience which is definitely reflected in the range of facilities available and well-kept work out areas.
