What Are the Gyms in Cuenca Really Like?
Thanks for your great site!
I have been looking for detailed information about the gyms in Cuenca -- specifically, the types of equipment available, and if any gym has decent free weights. I have read that there are gyms, but that they range quite a bit in terms of equipment and quality.
Can you give a run-down on the gyms, and whether any have free weights, a squat rack, and benches?
Thanks so much,
Becky, I apologize for the delay in replying. I had to squeeze some answers out of my stepson Isaac. Here's his reply...
"There are many gym in Cuenca, however none are very 'complete' based on US standards. The majority of the gyms here are closer to a 24 hour fitness style gym in the US, only not 24 hours (not even close).
"None have large lockers, and none have a sauna or steam room. I have been to Fox Gym, Olympia Gym, Gorilla Gym, Cam Gym, and Body Care Gym.
"Body Care was the nicest and newest, however very small (only room for 3-4 people in the weight room, and extremely overpriced at 65$ a month).
"Gorilla Gym had the best overall selection of quality equipment (free weights, treadmill, and machine) but they play music at literally harmful volumes.
"Fox gym is overpriced and the weights are not very good. They have poor hours as well.
"Olympia Gym has a fair selection of quality equipment, however no lockers and horrible hours.
"And that brings us to my personal favorite, Cam Gym. It has the best hours in the city at 6am-10pm Monday through Friday, Saturday 8am to 8pm (closed Sunday).
"The quality of the majority of the equipment is fair. There's plenty of equipment and weights, and room for everyone. Cam Gym has all standard types of weightlifting equipment."
I hope that helps.
