I'm a licensed fitness trainer, have worked in gyms and studied a few years of sports science, hence I feel competent enough to form a well-founded opinion. My girlfriend and are spending 3 weeks in Playa del Carmen and decided to join a gym since we want to stay in shape and our hotel is lacking the respective facilities. We... More

The place is awesome clean, nice equipment , for me the fact that they close late was the most important thing when I decided to change from Evolve, and the fact that is less crowded and somehow I feel the people are not annoying and show off as in Evolve (at 5th), which is always full of teenagers talking and...

The Gym in Playa is equivalent to say an Equinox in NYC or Chicago. Just add DJ dance music and a club like atmosphere on some days and times. New good equipment, teachers and trainers that really know what they're doing. The classes offered here are awesome like yoga,spin, TRX, boot camps and everything is all inclusive. The club is...
