Coolest Gyms In The World

By Ryan Bologna

For some, all they need from a gym is some weights and cardio equipment. But there is so much more out there across the globe. Whether you are on vacation or happen to live in the area, here are some gyms everyone should visit.

Tulum Jungle Gym – Tulum Beach, Mexico

Tulum Jungle Gym is a must-visit for any gym rat when taking a trip to Mexico. The location is right on the beach, so the view is as good as any. The most unique part of Tulum Jungle Gym is that all of the weights are made out of wood. It is a bit pricey at $30 for a day pass. However, the environment and uniqueness make the price of admission worth it for tourists.

Red Rocks Amphitheater – Morrison, Colorado

Many know Red Rocks Amphitheater as a concert venue, but it turns into a gym in the morning. Up to 350 people go each morning to get a workout in. The theater has 69 rows, which makes it a good place to get a cardio workout in, and those steps can be used for exercises like elevated push-ups and lunges. There is a wide range of workout options at the Red Rocks Amphitheater and the view alone makes it worth a visit. The best part is it’s free to visit.

Virgin Active Singapore – Tanjong Pagar, Singapore

There are many Virgin Active gyms across the globe, but the Singapore location is at the top of the list. Any type of workout imaginable is available in this facility. For an intense workout, head to the hypoxic training room, which can simulate conditions of up to 9,800 feet above sea level. Not looking for something that intense? Head next door to the pool at the Sofitel Singapore City Center hotel. A membership is really valuable, as it gives unlimited access to all Virgin Active clubs around the world. That gives you some more gyms to check out if you’re going on a trip to places like England, Italy, and Thailand.

The Sporting Club At The Bellevue – Philadelphia

The Sporting Club At The Bellevue is all-inclusive. There are up to 120 different classes available. The facility also has a 10,000-square-foot fitness floor, NBA-sized basketball court, and a junior Olympic pool. The spa, sauna, and whirlpool are available to wind down after your workout. To wrap it up, the cafe has a wide variety of healthy options for a good post-workout meal.

Turtle Bay Resort – Oahu, Hawaii

A list of the coolest gyms in the world is not complete without including one from Hawaii, which is why the gym at Turtle Bay resort gets a shoutout. The fitness center has a panoramic view of the Hawaiian waters. The typical classes like spin, yoga and pilates are available, but there are unique options like Tahitian dancing too. Guests staying at the Turtle Bay Resort have full access to the gym while residents can purchase a membership for a monthly charge.

MV Fitness – Baltimore

MV Fitness offers all of the usual amenities seen in gyms. A variety of classes are available along with a weight room and cardio equipment. The building itself is a converted mansion, and that is what puts this gym on the list. The old wine cellar on the bottom floor is now used for weight training. There is a chandelier hanging from the ceiling and the floors are still the original marble. MV Fitness is one of the most unique places to get a workout in.

Third Space – Soho London, England

Third Space’s Soho London location might have the most features out of any gym. The facility has the usual cardio equipment, cycle studio, and weights, but it also features a climbing wall, dojo, boxing ring, four-lane swimming pool, and a glass bottom training area. There are also food and smoothies available for pre and post-workout.

Embody Fitness – Dubai

Embody Fitness is a gym that guarantees luxury. When looking from the outside, you would think it is just a corporate building, because the gym is located inside of Dubai’s Lamborghini headquarters. The gym is the largest in Dubai and has a VIP Olympic quality room with private training studios. The facility is top tier and you’ll get to see some of the coolest cars in the world inside the building.
