Hi,I will be staying in beijing, to be specific,9 Dazhongsi East RoadHai Dian DistrictBeijing, 100098I will be at this location for a few months and wish to find a gym which i can attend.It needs to cater heavy weights as I am an amateur body builder and also needs to cater for my schedule as I will be getting student work experience over there. I start at 2pm Beijing time and finish at 10pm and wish to find a gym that stays open after this time as I will need to train after I finish each day. The worst scenario is I train before work which can be arranged into my schedule. if your able to provide a rough estimation on cost, especially considering the duration to which I will be staying there which is roughly 2 months. Being a student I dont have a great deal of funds but am willing to sacrifice certain things for reasonable quality gym equipment, again thankyou for your help and advice.Can you please advise me on this. Thankyou for your help.

Hi all, just moved near Lama temple, are there any gyms in this area as far as anyone knows ? Thanks for your help in advance!

Gyms here in Beijing are closing at a rapid rate. Many of the places listed above are closed; some have been shut for months.

Gyms are usually poorly managed and, like so many enterprises here in China, operated for the sole purpose of making money. They seemed like a good investment for a while to some but now that the Olympics seems like a century or so ago, they are no longer an in-thing to go to.

Rarely will you find a gym that is run and managed by competent, fitness-minded people. (Many of the locker rooms have people smoking in them, including employees.) Like coffee bars and music venues, gyms are fading away as people lose taste for what they considered fashionable instead of something for exercise.

Wishing you good luck in your search, for you will need it.

Hello Sergej, what you say might be true for for some enterprises, but also quality costs money. Tera Wellness in Phoenix city is in a feasible walk distance and hast good equipment. Even rowing machines by concept II. So first investigate clear examples and then make statements. A general prejudice does not help anyone.

I'm here in Beijing for a 3 month internship. I'm living in the Beijing Riviera compound but the fitness center in the club house is bad and expensive, for my opinion. Is there a fitness center reachable with the e-bike having normal prices?

I live in Beijing near guangximen subway. Do you know of any fitness centers nearby?

there is not any big fitness center nearby, but there are many universities nearby, you can see whether there are fitness centers in the universities.
you can also try the fitness center in the Crowne Plaza Beijing Sun Palace hotel which is about 500 meters from the Guangximen station.

Just moved to Beijing, working at Gateway Plaza, looking for a gym open early in the morning 6:30 or earlier. Steve

a gym usually opens at 07:00 in the morning. if you want to do some exercise in the early morning, i think parks or the public square are good choices.

Hi Thomas,
the park is a good outdoor fitness center:)
i know the CSI-BAlly Total Fitness is a nice one, but it is a little bit far from the park. the nearest one is located at No.7 Inner Jianguo Gate Avenue (Jian Guo Men Nei Da Jie), Dongcheng District.

Hi Rachel,
many fitness centers have rowing machines, but may not be the Concept 2.

I will be studying abroad this summer during the months of May and June and would love to learn more about what events or programs that you offer during that time. It would be a great experience for me while staying in touch with the game of tennis.
Thank you so much,

If you are insterested in tennis, I advise you go to Beijing Olympic Green Tennis Center located at Side Road of N. 5th Ring Road, Chaoyang, Beijing.

My name is Kiran Tyagi. I will be staying at Capital Normal University this summer doing an internship in Beijing. However I am very interested in fitness, and came across this fitness center. I would love to know more about the facility and the fitness programs offered.

It's hard to list the detailed info. about the fitness centers above here. One eyewitness is better than thousands of words. You can know about them when you are in China.
