Keeping fit is a part of everyone’s agenda, and each of us tackles our fitness differently. Fortunately, diversity is one joy that comes with working out. Whether you are choosing different activities like dancing, swimming, hiking or pole fitness or deciding if you prefer jumping jacks or skipping, you have so many options! Similarly, you have plenty of options when choosing which gyms in Barbados you should consider. So let’s dive in to what you can find in Barbados’s fitness world.
Now we all have that one friend whose entire life is committed to the “Life of swole” so to speak and I’d recommend you start by asking them a few questions. Gym training varies with each gym, especially those with personal trainers, has its unique ways of executing the same exercises.
The first goal is finding out which gym is best for you and allows you to move at your own pace.
How much does a gym membership in Barbados usually cost per month?
Like any other good investment, knowing your budget and allocating a bit for your gym journey should also be researched. Not all gyms charge the same. More importantly, the more established a gym, the chances are that the price is higher there.
For example, gyms in Barbados that have only been open for a year may have a monthly subscription of $100.00 BDS ($50.00USD) a month, whereas another gym may be around for the same year, but they gained traction (or more diverse clientele) and charge $300.00 BDS ($150.00USD) a month.
Be sure to ask with and check out your options before settling into a gym.
Are there personal trainers available at any of these gyms?
The truth is most gyms do and others don’t. This information is also crucial and beneficial for those who prefer more impactful training, as not everyone is a fan of working out in crowds.
Well, that’s one weight lifted off our shoulders! So how about we dive into some of the gyms we can check out for 2022?
Steadily rising the ranks, and gaining influence, is the young Holos Health Fitness Gym.

Before anyone asks, Ciara isn’t teaching here (I was hurt by this news.)
Humor aside, when it comes to gyms in Barbados, many of them only recently began to expand their hours and activities. This unique 24hr gym features a gung-ho olympian-type setting, creating, as they call it, “an adult playground.” They use a combination of both indoor and outdoor training methods, which add to their playground aesthetic.
Personal Trainer and Nutrition chef Corey Narkissos Springer has created a family hub here in Barbados. His creative routines and professionally positive critique and advice have helped dozens pave a path towards their health and fitness goals.
Another 24hr gym that is very young but slowly climbing the ranks. Its small, close-knit family keeps you motivated and energized!

There are so many gyms in Barbados…

What option will you go for? I’m more of a go with the flow kinda person. But a personal trainer also sounds fun. But so does jumping side by side with people on a miniature trampoline! I think I’ll watch for your comments and see who has the most fun!
Prefer Yoga instead of the gym? We cover that too!
Yoga is an exercise which has a very long and rich history. It is a spiritual practice used to induce complete harmony, strength and awareness in both the mental and physical state. There are many ways to practice yoga in Barbados. If you want to practice yoga, you can choose to find online references. If you want to practice yoga under professional guidance, you can visit one of the many of our yoga studios.
Yoga has been used as a spiritual practice and method of obtaining enlightenment for as far back as 10,000 years ago. However, scholars have gathered enough knowledge to separate the practice into four distinct periods of time.
