Here at Flawless, we believe a healthy body means a healthy mind. On that note, here is our list of the most popular gyms in the city.
Via Carlo Ravizza, 4
If you live close to Zona Fiera, you’ll appreciate this one. Thanks to two rooms equipped with the latest Technogym treadmills, Get Fit in via Ravizza is definitely an alternative to jogging at Parco Sempione, – but, it’s not just that. This gym is great for those who love spinning, bodybuilding, Latin American dance, fit-boxing and much more. It’s a fitness oasis, but not only for sports enthusiasts. Come here for a quiet place to relax, read a good book and enjoy the lounge, dining area and a small but well-appointed thermal spa next to the pool. Looking to get targeted sessions with a personal trainer? Get Fit has some of the best sports trainers in Northern Italy, including Monica Andolfi and SImone Abrescia, who can help you get in shape for that half marathon.
Corso Como, 15
Like Virgin Active in Cavour, this is one of the cornerstones of Milanese gyms. The Virgin gyms are all frequented by famous and successful people. You can participate in fun, group courses, which are often very creative, and conducted by leading coaches from all over the world. There are internationally renowned yoga instructors, personal trainers to American film stars, dancers and more. Some of the more original courses in recent years includes the Booty Barre workout (something between dance and yoga), and the ZUU class which is inspired by the movements of animals, and was developed in Australia to train the special forces there.
Via Cascina Bellaria, 19
The Harbour Club at San Siro is the club of choice for the football players (and their wives) who play nearby. The gym is much loved by Cesarone Maldini, who has breakfast in the hotel lobby bar every morning. The gym is quite limited, and there’s sometimes a queue to use the treadmill, but the Harbour Club is more famous for its tennis courts, golf course and spa, which has bright windows that look out onto the outdoor pool. The facilities are super exclusive, and there are also beauty treatments available. In addition, they also have an excellent restaurant and a day-care for children.
Via Ceresio, 7
The new Ceresio 7 Gym & Spa has just opened and is already proving to be a success. More exclusive than you could imagine, this designer club puts architecture and design front and center. The gym comes equipped with the latest in Technogym machines, but the area is just as special for beauty and relaxation. You can also head to the Ceresio 7 Terrace Bar afterwards for cocktails, looking out over Gae Aulenti after your workout.
Luxury Fitness Club
Piazza della Repubblica, 17; Via Alessandro Manzoni, 31; Corso di Porta Nuova, 1
Since even the “angels” must keep fit, there are much more exclusive places for them: the gyms of luxury hotels. Let’s also call them Luxury Fitness Club. Put a hashtag like #luxuryfitness next to it and it’s not difficult to find images of Victoria Secret models or the most famous fashion bloggers in the world. In Milan, the top spots are Club 10 of the Prince of Savoy, Armani / SPA and Palazzo Parigi, with its Grand SPA.
Pilates Suite Brera
Via Fiori Chiari, 14
Forget the crowded halls of the most popular gyms. At Pilates Suite, there are three stations to choose from. This guarantees peace and privacy for those who want to (temporarily) leave the chaos of the city outside. By practicing Stott Pilates or the other disciplines in a studio that combines art and design, you will unlock well-being and harmony of body and mind. This is cozy and intimate space, with works of art on the walls and lots of light to brighten the rooms.
Via Giuseppe Parini 1 (ang. P.zza della Repubblica)
In Audace Gyms, the workout takes place between cement, leather, copper and aged iron. And while working to tone your body, you can also tone your mind with the beautifully decorated interior. The spaces are organized in “fitness boutiques” dedicated exclusively to a specific activity, for ultimate concentration.
Via Borgogna, 5
Pure Wellness, behind San Babila, is the first and only Training Studio in town that offers tailor-made programs for each client, leveraging on a science-based approach. A team of specialists comes together to create ad hoc courses – also within companies – to promote and achieve total wellness through functional training, yoga, pilates, athletic training, running training and personal training at home, and furthermore, consultancy of nutrition, osteopathy sessions, shiatsu and sports massages.
Elite Boxing Club
Corso di Porta Vittoria, 56
500 m2 to strengthen mental determination and concentration; the real warriors gather here. The Elite Boxing Club started in 2014, entirely dedicated to the disciplines of combat with the addition of a good dose of cross training. In short, from boxing to kick boxing, passing through muay thay, savate and MMA. The reference models are those well established abroad, while the team of experts includes certified coaches, multiple medalists and graduates in motor sciences.
Via Senato, 36
With locations around the world, the Barry’s Bootcamp brand has recently landed in Milan, bringing with it a revolutionary fitness concept: cool and social. A gym with a strong slogan “The Best Workout in the World”, power music, suggestive red lighting and interval training to stimulate neurons and endorphins in the body. The lessons are high intensity, with cardiovascular exercises, free weights and endurance, which pushes you to overcome your physical and mental limits. The “full-body workout” is a guarantee here.
PRIME Exclusive Wellness Duomo
Via San Paolo, 7
From the PRIME network, dedicated to premium wellness. A few steps from the Duomo, in a building designed by Giò Ponti, you’ll find this welcoming gym. Here you are able to binge some Netflix or scroll through Instagram while getting your fit on. On the other hand, the training area has a plethora of courses for the most hardcore gym enthusiasts. Need a break? Don’t worry. The relaxation center is waiting to soothe you with its sauna, turkish bath, salt wall and ice fountain.
