Its a new year, and for many that means a new fitness goal. Joining a gym can be a great way to stay in shape, but with many Parisian clubs costing well over 1500 euros a year, finding an affordable one can sometimes feel impossible.

This no-frills gym is probably the cheapest you will find anywhere in Paris. Sure, you’re not going to be meeting any Hollywood A-Listers in here, but if you’re just looking for a good space to work out, Neoness is the place for you.

The French take on gyms may not be exactly like that of American or British culture; they tend to be far less focused on free weights and body building equipment, and far more centred around cardio. Nevertheless, we hope that this list helps you save your euros and reach your health and fitness goals during your time in Paris!
What to do if you’re only in Paris for a few months
As part of your studies, you might find that you’re in Paris temporarily. When this happens, it can be difficult to find a gym membership, as most clubs offer annual subscriptions, or charge supplementary fees for those lasting less than 12 months. However, there is a solution.
