Work out at these health clubs and fitness centres

In Barcelona there are many gyms but not all are low-cost. In this article we present the top three fitness centres where you can save while you enjoy working out.

Do not forget that there are other ways to stay in shape for free in Barcelona outside of fitness centres. The beach is a place frequented by runners who dare to jog up Montjuic. The city also has many small outdoor municipal sports and fitness facilities, especially at the beach. You can also visit a swimming pool, you could even join a swimming club. Another idea; groups can be found on Facebook and Meetup to organize a spot of group sports.
