I actually posted this in the Sports forum by mistake - wondered why it wasn't here. LOL.

Are there are AFFORDABLE gyms anywhere other than in the big hotels (waaaaaaaaaay beyond my means!)

I'm guessing this is a no then :)

Sure they are!

My favourite - 117zl per month for students: fitness-platinum.com.pl

it's close to 'metro Politechnika' subway station.

Other prices not for students:
165zl - no entry limits + you can exercise all the time during gym open hours
130zl - no entry limits, but you can exercise till 5PM

There is also one really cheap, but I haven't been there and it is far from city center (Praga Poludnie - South Praga) - kaweczynska.pl/sport/silownia.html it seems that it costs only 60zl per month.... nice!

Thanks esek :) Wow that first site has some eye-watering webpage offerings (putting on my glasses and reaching for the dictionary :) )

No prob... maybe this will help a bit:

edit:

not good... this web page can't be translated as a whole (when you click on some link in menu then content is still in Polish... but you still can use google translator to translate some sentences)

I'm using Poltran (I'm too lazy to use an actual dictionary today!)

I actually tracked down and joined a gym which is women only.

galaxysolar.pl

I went for full access which is 130 per month, and I am delighted that there's a bus right back home from virtually outside. :)

Holmes place (in arkadia) does not seem bat either.

I've an important question: is anyone here in Holmes Place ? As every gym they don't have a "fixed price" (as in you can't find it in a brochure, the guy writes it down on a paper) and I just want to ensure I won't be screwed if I register.

The prices they offer is 200 PLN / month for a one-year contract.
What do you guys think ?

Gymnasion is really good. They have a chain of gyms all over Poland. I am going to the one in the Olympic Centre here in Warsaw. Costs 700 PLN for six months.

Holmes place at the Hilton is min 300PLN a month so sounds like a resonable deal for their Arkadia gym.

Thanks !

Do they speak English to Gymnasion ? 'Cause I must admit the guy in holmes place speaks a perfect one.

Hehe, this place exists as I'm there (near this gym) every other weekend :-) I just haven't been exercising in this gym :-)

Just not in Kraków. Ach well, I'll find one when I'm there no doubt.

fitness platinum is TINY... but it's got weights and a good-sized exercise room, and mid-day dudes are there just to lift and take care of business. good times.

160 pln for 4 weeks.
