The best fitness and bodybulding gyms in Budapest

Recommended gym for powerlifters

Recommended gym for martial arts

Different people holiday differently. There are those who limit their daily walk to the distance between the tanning bed and the sea in the name of recharging. There are those who are active every day, and they don’t want to change that during a holiday either.

Almost every hotel has a gym, but most of these are only suitable for emergency exercises at best. Fortunately, the world’s fitness craze didn’t miss Hungary either, and as a result the number of gyms rapidly grew.

It would take a while to find a form of exercise that you couldn’t do in one of the capital’s gyms. From different fighting sports through group aerobic classes to the new muscle stimulating exercises, everything can be found in Budapest.

Those, who just want to lift weights can also pick from thousands of gym, from the most modern machine equipped clubs to the hardcore powerlifting gyms that provide a haven for its members. We can sign up for private personal training, or nutrition guidance.

Many gym expanded to a wellness-oasis, where we can spoil ourselves with different massages, saunas and pools to regenerate after a workout. Some places, along with the usual buffet, also offer a restaurant that provides the fitting healthy dishes.

Most shopping centers also have gyms, so we can work out the stress caused by shopping with a bit of exercise. With opportunities like this, we don’t have to think long about an excuse, which would break us free from being lazy at least in our head.

There are plenty of gyms in Budapest, a complete list of what’s offered would be never-ending. Instead of this, I will list you all the best, most exclusive gyms – although the list will be shorter, you definitely won’t be disappointed in these.

I list these based on personal experiences, as I had the opportunity to try many of these.

Flex Gym

If you are famous, this is your spot, they provide a VIP changing room as well. 🙂

Bench press, squat, deadlift. These three exercises are powerlifting. Of course, the exercises should be done with the greatest possible weight.

A two-handed bar, plenty of weight discs, a bench, and a tripod are what you really need for powerlifting training. This can be found in every bodybuilder and fitness room.  

Yes, but these “average” gyms aren’t ready for people to squat at 260-300kg or bench press over 200kg. On the one hand, because many times there is not enough weight to put on the pole. And on the other hand, the bar is not a professional bar and it bends at a certain weight.

It is therefore important that we have the right tools to torture our bodies.

Fitness 2000

Fitness 2000, recommended gym for powerlifters

Fitness 2000’s gym is a bit out of downtown. It is located in the southern part of Pest in the 20th district.

Its advantage is that there is no shortage of parking space and you don’t have to pay for parking. The gym complex offers different services at different levels. Everybody here will find what’s right for them: from bodybuilding to TRX  and functional training.

And the gym is especially cool for powerlifters, I think there are over 900 weight discs. Many of them are 50kg so you won’t have to worry about not having enough weight. Of course, the rods will also be of sufficient quality to withstand the load.

Many excellent Hungarian powerlifters train in Fitness 2000. Among them is the 6 times Europe and 2 times world champion powerlifter: Zoltán Csepregi. He has a record in bench pressing of 365kg.

Anyone who can’t calm down during the holidays and needs to relieve their daily stress, they can do so in Budapest.

If you like, you can give and receive slaps in regular frames. Of course, judo, jiu-jitsu, or wrestling enthusiasts can find the right gym also.

Beast Arena

When it comes to fighting sports, I don’t know a better gym in Budapest than Beast Arena. My brother and I also practice here, and I can honestly say that the gym, which is on the south side of Buda meets all our needs. Here, you will find the challenge you were looking for.
