With the rise of commercial gyms and fitness franchises, the personalised element of exercise has been taken out of many people’s regimes. At the same time, there is a growing number of independent gyms and clubs, which are thriving and producing real results for their communities.
We wanted to highlight the grit and determination of Edinburgh’s hard-working fitness centres by creating an interactive guide to the best exercise spots in the capital. From boxing and martial arts clubs to CrossFit ‘boxes’ and independent gyms, our map includes a wide range of options for improving your physical and mental wellbeing.
If you’re looking to take up a new activity or want to experience a more personalised workout, our guide will help you find the right place. Click on the locations marked in red for descriptions, or scroll down for a list of all the gyms and clubs on the map.
