Fitness Centers

Megatlon (locations all over the city) rates begin at $50 and go up to $400 for a month membership, but be wary as they will try to sell you the most expensive package. Push a little to get better rates. Some locations have indoor pools, and all have weights, machines, classes, and athletic courts.

Le Parc (two main locations, one in Microcentro at San Martín 645, and one in Caballito at Yerbal 150) day rates start at $30. These gyms are small, but updated and modern, with a cafe, sports shop, and sauna.

Sport Club (locations throughout the city) day rates begin at $25. They offer a variety of classes, most locations have small indoor pools, and some have athletic courts as well.

YMCA (Reconquista 439, 4311-4785) is great on a budget, with day rates starting at just $20. If you are a YMCA member, bring your card with you and get a free pass for the month.
