Best cheap gyms in Paris

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. But don’t give up your resolution just yet! With memberships for as little as 15 euros a month, and several free trials available, this list can help you find a great low-cost gym, to help you loose weight, not money.

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
