由于大部分人都知道我在网上工作了一整天, that’s a dangerous thing for someone who lives in Lisbon where food is delicious (and cheap). 对我来说幸运, 这里安家落户之前，我有尝试吨体育场馆. I’ll leave the best for last (the one I picked for my membership), but I’ll give you a breakdown of the best gyms in Lisbon so you can stay healthy and in shape (and still enjoy all of 里斯本的美味佳肴).
The Good: 这是您的预算健身房. 在成员运行 €7 每个星期. 这是一个很好的健身房，如果你是不是在找任何娱乐设施. 在 总理 籍, you can go to any of the clubs within the chain and there are plenty (almost 20 in the Lisbon area). 这是里斯本最好的体育场馆之一，当它涉及到价值.
The Bad: They require that you have a Portuguese or European bank account (no US credit cards or cash are accepted). 客户服务因地区而异，真正留给了很多有待改进.
The Verdict: 去，如果你想省钱, 但不要期望太多. This is your no-frills convenient gym.
Locations: 本Alfragide, 提督李嘉欣, 阿马多拉, Amoreiras和, 弧盲, 本菲卡, 国家公园, 距离Picoas, 桑托斯.
The Good: This is one of the best gyms in Lisbon because of its great price and everything it has to offer. It’s got all your regular gym stuff and more. There is a pool (of course), but there are also programs like fencing, golf, tennis, 和更多.
The Bad: They are too damn far from my house for me to join. There are also two hidden fees, a join fee of €50 and an annual member quota that varies according to your membership. These are on top of your monthly dues, but still comes out to be quite affordable when you consider all the gym has to offer.
The Verdict: 这是当地人的最爱, it is priced well and if you feel like a gerbil on a ball when you get on a treadmill, all the amenities here are probably great for you.
The Good: The equipment and amenities are good. Most locations (there are 6 in Lisbon) have pools. There are plenty of classes and they have an app to help you reserve a spot in the classes (in some of the clubs you will need to use this app, the classes fill up fast).
The Bad: 这家具乐部带有一个溢价的价格标签，这是相当受欢迎. 总是有成千上万的人那里，类填满快. 那里的工作人员是在销售有点爱出风头. Canceling is a pain. 认真地. Antonio & I had been “going” for 2 年份. He had not been actively going since November. The gym called me to tell me I owed money for May. I emailed them a copy of my receipts for March, April & May and asked them to cancel my account. They said I had to come in person. Sadly this moved me to the next month. I made the first visit to cancel and asked to speak to a manager, I was told they were in meetings. I requested that the email me that night to make an appointment for me to come in and speak directly to the manager. I never got the email so I went back the next day. Manager “was not” there. They required that I pay 2 months (the new month and the month after), even though I showed them I owed nothing (had receipts), had requested a cancellation the previous month, AND had not been coming for months. The gym’s customer service made me feel like it was Ryan Air with all its dark patterns. I felt as if I was being held at ransom. What a bummer.
The Verdict: Thumbs down. Nice machines, fine amenities (you definitely pay for them), nice classes. Very expensive (for Portugal) and too many people (which may be good if you’re new in town and looking to meet people), but for me…I like things quiet. Going forward it is a nay for me.
Locations: 5 十月, 阿尔瓦拉德, Amoreiras和, 自由大道, 大道后卫键, 国家公园.
The Good: This is more of a country club – sports club combination. It’s the Chi-chiest of the gyms and offers an indoor-outdoor pool, 很多网球场, 一个晒太阳区, 和令人难以置信的设备. 它也位于 公园爱德华七世, 所以该位置是神话般. 里斯本的精英到这里, 所以，如果你正在寻找摩肩接踵, 这是地方.
The Bad: 会员需要付出代价, 那就是不漂亮. Memberships are yearly and you can cancel as long as you give 3 months notice. Cost per person is either €93/111 (with or without tennis). 也有只有一个位置, 所以不像其他俱乐部在旅行时你不会有俱乐部参观.
The Verdict: 如果你有没有钱, 参军. 这个地方是华丽的，具有很大的设施.
The Good: 这是我的收藏之一, 我会加入，如果它是不那么远从我在新的地方 新的途径附近. 这个俱乐部是不造作都. 价格是按月比较公道, the equipment is fantastic and there are plenty of classes (take the Samba class – it’s awesome). People here are fit (seriously fit) which is quite inspirational when you are about to give up.
The Bad: 这是有点难以得到. 因为它是在水面上, 你必须要跨越的一条主要街道，然后进入过一座桥. 地点是伟大的，如果你在桑托斯, 但如果你是在里斯本等地. 有 4 在总社, 但只有 1 在里斯本正确.
The Verdict: 如果你是在桑托斯/距离Cais do Sodre区, this should be your choice.
Virgin Active (Now part of Holmes Place) $$$
The Good: 这个 was Richard Branson’s gym and it is definitely one of the Best Gyms in Lisbon.
The Bad: Got picked up by Holmes Place.
The Verdict: No longer in existence. I miss the old gym.
***上 10/3/2017 维珍活力PT宣布，它是由霍姆斯购买地点. I’ve updated this piece to show how it has changed with the aquisition…which is for the better 🙂
