Finding a Gym in St. Petersburg

There are a gazillion gyms to choose from in St. Pete and every year there are a lot of questions in the expat Facebook group about gyms in the city center, so I have compiled all of the recommendations into one post with as much information as I could get on each of the gyms.

Please note that the information here is likely to change from year to year, not to mention the fact that some of the discounts and prices I wasn’t able to obtain. If you have more information on these gyms that you want to contribute or if you noticed that the information here has changed, please write me.

What Happens After You Choose a Gym

Once you have chosen a gym, be sure to take your passport with you in order to complete the membership application. If you want to go to a gym that only accepts yearly or 6 month payments in advance, they may allow you to pay for your membership in installations. My gym is one of these, but members can pay for the whole year in 3 consecutive months. Don’t forget to ask about discounts before you start the membership process.

Below I have written about how much a membership will cost for the year/6 months, if it has a pool, a kid’s room/classes, hours of operation and if there are discounts.

About the Gyms

Keep in mind that all of the gyms have locker rooms and showers as well as hairdryers although not all gyms have towels for you to use and there’s usually no shampoo/soap in the shower room. Lockers usually cannot be rented. Many gyms here have saunas and some may even have jacuzzis.
