Gyms In Central and South America
Bienvenido amigos! Welcome to my page on gyms in Central and South America. Machu Picchu is of course a workout in itself and if you’re Peru-bound, I certainly recommend heading that way for some stunning scenery and the challenge. This is no normal mountain climb – the altitude adds a whole new dimension to the workout.
Check out my personal account of Machu Picchu here.
I found gyms across these continents ranged hugely in terms of price and facilities. You’ll find everything from rough and ready gyms from the previous millennium (and some!) to top notch fully air-conditioned elite chains. And everything in between! English is not widely spoken, but establishing the cost of a workout is simple enough.
Touristy regions will often offer a better standard of gym, but this will come at a price. Other areas will find you some bargain gyms, but don’t expect western standards – this could mean no aircon, even in hot climates. Train early to be safe, especially until you’re acclimatised.
