Playa Del Carmen Gyms

Check out our Playa Del Carmen Gyms for staying fit all year round. If you have visited this city you would have noticed one thing for sure that Playa Del Carmen is a city full of fit people. A thing like winter weight does not exist here. Even the retired people take care of their health and hop on the fitness wagon to stay in good shape.

Gyms here are always busy with the young and old locals.  It is quite popular among the younger age demographic due to the international environment of Europeans, Argentinians and beautiful South Americans living here. In fact, fit and good looking people from all over the the planet love Playa because nobody cares if you don’t wear a shirt.

Plus there’s quite a scope of jobs in dance, entertainment and acrobatics that calls one to keep his body fit and in shape. Of course, now more and more retirees and smart people from everywhere are discovering Playa, making it home and going to the gym.

There are a number of local fitness centers and gyms in Playa Del Carmen to choose from if you happen to be a fitness conscious person. Here’s a list my top picks for gyms you can walk to downtown:

• Muscle Beach: Muscle beach happens to be the oldest workout facility in Playa Del Carmen although it has changed locations and now is located on 10th Ave. in the Colosio neighborhood. On a hot day stay away because it is not air-conditioned. Monthly dues are quite economical for this gym and for  group fitness you could choose from Boxing,  Aerobics, or Spinning.

When people are not sweating it out in the gyms, they are ready for a refreshing swim at the beach or in cenote swimming holes all year round. Swimming is a fun cardio-exercise in itself and luckily in downtown Playa you are only a few minutes to the beach and can make a splash in warm Caribbean waters whenever you want.
