Where to prepare for the summer? Especially for BeautyHack, Elena Smirnova, CEO of the Justbefit workout selection service, compiled a list of the best fitness clubs. The first part of the rating is for Muscovites.
The fitness club in the Moscow City skyscraper "Oko" is divided into 8 zones: a 25-meter-long swimming pool, a thermal complex with a salt bath and a snow room, Encore spa (the menu includes hardware cosmetology, anti-aging therapy and body shaping), a space for combat arts with a large boxing ring, a functional training area with the Synyrgy 360 complex (a station where you can simultaneously strengthen muscles, stretch and work on weight loss), a studio for 60 group programs with TRX loops and hammocks for anti-gravity yoga, a cafe serving only the right dishes. The design of Encore was developed by Moscow architect Alexander Parkin: dim lighting, reflection of panoramic windows in mirrors, natural wood and high-quality fabrics in decoration are his signature techniques.

2) Worldclass Metropolis
This fitness club opened in February 2017, all of the equipment are from the latest lines of Italian, Japanese and American brands. In the 25-meter World Class pool, Aqua Stand Up training is carried out on artificial waves and an inflatable board. A good option for those who are going to surf by the summer. Another plus of the World Class at Metropolis is the intense interval training Beat Zone: a combination of a treadmill and rowing machine with functional exercises. During training, special monitors determine the target load zone, monitor your condition and send this information to the mail. BeatZone and Cycle studios can be visited once, without a club card.
An important detail is the large parking lot for 2,800 spaces.

3) Fitness One Melody
The club is located in the Melody cottage community in the Moscow region, but is not inferior to the central fitness. Special attention was paid here to family programs. For children, there are small groups of acrobatics, soccer, scuba diving, self-defense, ballet and cardio in a dance fairy tale format. For parents - all types of martial arts from tai-bo to mix-fighting, programs with TRX loops, quick functional training for all muscle groups Hard Cross Circuit and ballroom dancing classes.

The main feature of "Rocket" in Maryino is group programs. In addition to Atmosfera (a set of strength exercises with weights, dancing, yoga, Pilates, and stretching) and Tiger (all types of boxing, each workout lasts 55 minutes and strengthens all types of muscles). The club's area of 2,700 square meters is occupied by a gym with new American fitness equipment from the famous brands Life Fitness and Hammer Strenght. There is no pool in "Raketa": the concept of the club is not to distract clients with additional services from working on simulators and functional training. The subscription is as cheap as possible (4,500 rubles for the first time, 1,500 rubles for each next) and is paid every month, if you continue to study, the amount is automatically debited from your card.

5) X-Fit Clean Ponds
Fitness club with a swimming pool within walking distance from the Kremlin. You can buy a subscription to X-Fit for the sake of one parking lot: customers can park their car for free for 3.5 hours. X-Fit area at Chistye Prudy is 3,000 square meters. The large gym is competently divided into two zones - a cardio block and a complex of strength training equipment: you will not have to run across the entire gym during a circuit training.

6) Come On Gym
The fitness design in Crocus City is reminiscent of comics about superheroes: bright lemon walls, glossy white floors and modern space fitness equipment.

The first fitness club with Milon simulators in Moscow looks very minimalist: white and gray tones, soft spotlights and soft music. The entire first floor is occupied by large and comfortable changing rooms. Instead of numbers on lockers, words such as "the most beautiful" and "the most feminine." The entire second floor is occupied by Milon "smart trainers": you insert a card with your body data, and you get the necessary load. This fitness club has a special program for losing weight - "Metabolic training": circular exercises at intervals of 30 seconds. To monitor the effect, it is not necessary to contact the trainer: there is a slider on the display of each simulator, if it is in the red area - you need to speed up, in the green area - keep up the good work. This workout continues to burn fat for two days after your fitness trip.

8) Orangefit Paveletskaya
Orangefit in the business park on Letnikovskaya is the best branch of the chain. There are trendy personal training aids such as vibrating platforms, TRX loops and hammocks. Check out the new Body Condition group sessions: a combination of aerobic exercise, proper breathing and strength training simultaneously burns fat and makes muscles more prominent. If you prefer dancing, try Parter & More workouts: deep muscles, spine and even internal organs work while you learn new movements to music.

In the World-gym on Dubininskaya there are new classes of a "mixed format" - this is how short programs are called here to quickly achieve results. There are three options: Interval Training - alternating aerobics and strength exercises with dumbbells and weights, Step'n'Sculpt - walking on a step platform and working with weights, Sab'n'Stretch - stretching and crunching the press. You can burn calories in a playful way on volleyball (there are groups for beginners and advanced players), sports ping-pong and rock climbing. There is a World Beauty salon on the second floor of the club: here you will find an individual body care program to speed up the result.
st. Dubininskaya, 71
This is a small club with three halls, but I consider it one of the best in Moscow. It's all about correct hatha yoga, which does not exist in large networks: you meditate to the tinkling of Tibetan bowls and even try to stand on nails. There are all the necessary workouts here: two types of Pilates (for the development of balance and strength), women's and men's boxing, aerostretching on canvas, crossfit for beginners and advanced, light strength training in the morning and enhanced muscle training in the evenings. You can relax after a workout with “myofascial relaxation” - special equipment relieves joint and muscle pain, straightens the spine and increases flexibility. Another option is to go to Yeezy Café for soothing tea and healthy sweets.

11) "Aviamotornaya Fitness Territory"
The 5,000 square meter club is spread over three floors and is never crowded here even in the evenings. Among the important advantages: a sports pool with sea water, an anti-gravity yoga studio on canvas, a spa area with an ice bath to improve blood circulation, a kids club where training is combined with developmental activities, a new Synergy 360 station (combines exercise machines for strengthening muscles, stretching and cardio), trainers with international LesMills certificates (trendy workout programs that burn 700 calories in half an hour).

This is the main and largest branch of the network. As conceived by the creators, it is made in the style of a country fitness club: natural wood was used in the decoration, the light was made dim and warm. Strength training equipment was purchased from Life Fitness, Hammer and Tuff-Stuff - proven American brands. The 25-meter pool is suitable for athletes: there is a special track for high-speed swimming. On May 15, Republica will open a summer area with two swimming pools, sun loungers, a bar with healthy cocktails and a kids club.

13) "City Fitness" on Dobryninskaya
The new Static Fat Burn workout complex is the first reason to train at City Fitness: it is a combination of yoga, body ballet, calanetics, fitness and functional exercises. All muscle groups work, endurance increases, and fat burns efficiently. The second reason is the Hot Iron strength program with barbells of different weights: the level of physical fitness grows every time, the muscles quickly acquire relief.
There is a sports and rehabilitation medicine clinic in the club building: physiotherapists, neurologists, traumatologists and endocrinologists will receive you without an appointment during the fitness hours.
