One of the best gyms and how joining can change your life

The days are getting longer, and the sky above Florence is bright blue. The grass in the Boboli Gardens is getting greener too, and cheery forget-me-nots are popping up from the ground. 

It’s spring, the season of renewal and rebirth. And the perfect time to re-energize and prepare for summer!

Out with the old body, in with the new energies

Spring is the ideal moment for new beginnings, the right time to change your mindset and revitalize your body and soul. As the temperatures slowly rise, and you start seeing the swallows glide over the Arno river, the craving for novelties, fun, and added energy increases too. The best way to get it all, in one go? Joining a gym and working out!

Harness the energy of spring with a new gym program

Exercise is undoubtedly the very best way to get your energy back, shake the winter dullness away, and make the most of springtime. What kind of exercise you choose depends on you, on your preferences and on your overall shape, of course. But, whether you’re into cardio, weight lifting, or “soft” exercise plans, training in a gym is always your best bet

Why? For the following 3 reasons.

3 excellent reasons to join a gym

  1. You have pros available to help, advise, or teach you. This enables you to work out safely and fully, hone your exercise plan, avoid injuries, and make the most of your time.
  2. A good gym offers a variety of options. This means you can discover, and try, new types of exercise… you may join to lift weights and find yourself turning into a pilates superstar!
  3. You get to meet new people, of both sexes, in an informal, pleasant environment. 

Join a gym and tune in with the local lifestyle

The third reason, meeting new people, is especially important if you’re a foreign student studying abroad for a semester or a year. Being in a new city, in a new environment, can, in fact, make you feel displaced and uprooted. And, attending college courses or language classes, can mean you end up spending time with foreigners like yourself. Joining a gym allows you to connect with the locals, and make new friends among them. This enables you to get a better overall experience, partake in the local lifestyle and… become part of the Florentine family!

Who to turn to for advice on what gym to choose? Locals, i.e. Florentines, know their way around and have the insight it takes to make a savvy decision, but a foreigner may be at a loss.
