Looking for a gym / Busco un gimnasio
Posted July 7th, 2010 - 1:32 pm by from London, England (Permalink)
Hi everyone

I just finished my move to Barcelona and one of the first things I need to do is find a gym to join. I belonged to Fitness First in Belgium and could have gone to the branch here in Glóries/Diagonal, but it seems to have closed down since the last time I was here four weeks ago.

So can anyone recommend a good gym? It needs to be a good all-around gym as I like to do classes, cardio and weights.

Thanks!
Fiona

¡Hola a todos!

Acabo de mudarme a BCN y unas de las primeras cosas que tengo que hacer es de encontrar un gimnasio. Era socia de Fitness First en Bélgica, y habría podido usar el club aquí en BCN, pero parece que está cerrado ahora (desde mi última visita hace 4 semanas).

Entonces, ¿hay alguien que puede recomendar un buen gimnasio? Debe ofrecer buenos cursos, equipo de cardio y pesas.

¡Muchas gracias!
Fiona

There is a nice gym in Sarria if you are not looking for something too posh.

Good location 2m from the tram station, basic fitness classes, basic weights, not too crowded and plenty of options if you like combat sports.

Have fun
Francisco

Hola Francisco

Thanks for the info. I'm staying near Paral.lel metro station so that's a bit far for me. Good to keep in mind though if I decide to do martial arts at some point.

Muchas gracias!
