We all know that we should be more active. Exercise is not essential just for the pursuit of a beautiful body, but it’s also proven to be great for the mind. We have to confess that more often than not we find it all far too much of slog, but if you’re going to indulge in Edinburgh’s best restaurants and foodie scene, you need to burn it off somehow!
Edinburgh is well served by the large corporate gyms, but there is an alternative, offering hands-on, individually-tailored support. These three independent Edinburgh gyms may even be enough to convince us that exercise can be fun…
We’ve recently been introduced to Waterman’s Finding Fit map, a great tool to help you find the right independent Edinburgh gym for you. We’ve profiled three independent gyms featured on the map to show you the variety offered.
1) Fitness Soul
At Fitness Soul, it’s all about the fun. Learn how to bust a move in a Zumba class, work out without your wee one with a Fitmamas class, or enjoy one of their popular Kettlebell classes. Make sure to take advantage of their no-commitment introduction offer for 7-day unlimited class access.
2) Edinburgh Taekwondo
