Heavy questions – the best gyms in Budapest

by Lóránt Dénes

Different people holiday differently. There are those who limit their daily walk to the distance between the sunbed 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 haven to its members. We can sign up for a private personal training, or a 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, but 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

I can safely say, that Flex Gym in Budapest is one of the best gyms in Hungary. What else proves it better, than the number of celebrities who trained here.

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