Gracia’s Best Gyms

Written by Gill

For those who are new to the Gracia neighbourhood and searching for a gym, or those who are just starting a new fitness regimen, we have compiled a list with the best gyms in Gracia.


DiR have centres across the city. Much like the neighborhood, Gracia’s gym is bohemian and eclectic. They offer a swimming pool (with a sun terrace, a sauna and a jacuzzi!), full cardiovascular facilities and a spin studio. The gym has a variety of quality classes and equipment and it is flooded with natural light. DiR Gracia is very popular so expect it to be busy at peak times.

Established for over 20 years, this Gracia gym has loads going on, making it a great place to go to get fit. The range of classes at Eurofitness is really impressive with everything on offer from zumba to body combat to tai chi. Eurofitness also has a pool, sauna, hydro-pool and solarium to wind down after your workout.


Up in the north of Gracia, near Park Guell, is Europolis, a traditional fitness complex with plenty on offer for those looking to get fit. There are a variety of classes, including fitness classes in the pool and some lesser known classes for those looking for something different. Alongside their well-equipped gym, they also offer personal training if you need a little guidance in your fitness regime.
