The city’s fitness centers are usually rather recent
establishments situated in new or freshly converted buildings.
Typically, they consist of a weight-training room, a cardio
machines section, and an area for aerobics classes, Pilates
exercises, and yoga. Plus a relaxation space, a coffee bar,
separate locker rooms for each gender, and a reception area.
Some health clubs can boast a small swimming pool and/or sauna.
Some offer massages and other spa services.
As regards weight training, the range of free weights is often
limited in Krakow gyms and they mostly rely on cable machines.
On the other hand, the cardiovascular equipment gets due
attention so rows of stationary bikes, elliptical trainers,
stairclimbers, and treadmills wait ready to burn your fat.
Apart from changing rooms and bathrooms a few wellness centers
in Krakow provide women-only spaces. Yet there are usually
available aerobic or yoga classes meant for ladies only.
As a rule of thumb, fitness clubs in Krakow gladly admit walk-in
customers. Rates range from 25 zlotys (PLN) to 95 zlotys for a day,
and from 150 zlotys to 600 zlotys for a month.

hotel in Krakow as well as all five-star ones should
have fitness facilities on the premises. They are supposed to
provide them free of charge to their guests. Yet in practice few
offer decent gyms which are good enough to satisfy the needs of
people accustomed to regular workouts.
