Hiya friends, as you know gyms are a big part of why I love or hate a city. And for me the best places to retire cheap will always have a good gym.
Here’s a link to my review of gyms in Medellin LINK TO GYM REVIEW IN MEDELLIN, COLOMBIA
My second stop after I land is always to find the best place to get my workouts in.
(My first stop of course is to grab a couple of beers.)
I found One Fitness in Arequipa, Peru.
It’s kind of a weird gym.
Big, but cheap.
Good, but kinda crappy.
There’s a lot of machines here. Everything from a squat rack, to smith machines. Lots of free weights.
It has group classes included in the price as well.
1 month = 60 S ($25 CAN)
2 month = 90 S ($37.50 CAN)
3 month = 120 S ($50 CAN)
6 month = 210 S ($87.50 CAN)
12 month = 360 S ($150 CAN)
The oddest thing about this gym is while it has all this great equipment\
It doesn’t have toilet paper
It doesn’t have a scale
It doesn’t have a water fountain,
It’s like, they were like, what’s the cheapest way to run a big gym? And said, No need for toilet paper.
To be honest, I don’t think it’s that bad. It’s just odd.
If you want the full video review, plus pics of the gym go to this link.
All in all, I love One Fitness, and would recommend this odd little gym in Arequipa, Peru!
