This is the perfect moment to show off your new yoga exercise, your new summer outfit or to show off your summer body. For everyone who wants to start training to get that perfect summer body or for everyone who is curious about finding a workout spot: here is our top selection of places where you can put your body to the test.


DiR has one of the most gyms throughout Barcelona making it easy to find one near your ACCOMMODATION, no matter where you are staying. We especially recommend DiR Claris, just a block away from our office, here you can find all the latest fitness equipment you need. Besides the normal fitness rooms, you can find a steam room, jacuzzi, different dance classes and the jambox (a room for boxing and bodyweight exercises). The DiR clubs also tend to have rooftop terraces, nutrition services, massage and physical therapy.

Callisthenics park, Barceloneta

Barcelona is also an excellent place for working out while enjoying the sun. Colloquially also known as Muscle Beach is a spot at the end of the Barceloneta beachfront. It has lots of different bars for working out – pull up bars, high bars, low bars, monkey ladder, wall bars, parallel bars and a snake bar. There are outdoor showers just next to the station, so you can rinse off after your workout. It can get crowded in the afternoon, so early morning and evening are the best times to work out down here.
