Just wondering for the folks that have been around europe. Are there any chain gyms that are found in most major cities. A la Gold's Gym or Bally's in the U.S.? I'd like to keep my workout regime going while on my overseas adventure. I realise I can't keep it up entirely but I'd like to not turn into white urkel (is that how you spell that?). Are people gonna look at me crazy for running around a city? I've heard it's less common to run through a city on that side of the atlantic.

but i was looking for ways to keep fit without going to the gym, like jogging or working with a piece of theraband. I was injurd and couldn't walk/go to gym for 3months and counting. My physio therapist showed me a heap of exercises with theraband and i'm sure if u can walk then there is alot more alternative ways to stay fit. U could even incorporate a fair bit of trekking/hiking into ur Euro adventures (U like hiking right?! I'm only agianst joining a gym while backpacking becuz of the added cost, If u have the budget go for it.

I've never heard such a thing, but the more i think i don't remember seeing ppl "running around the city" in a european movie that's kinda odd! Help me out here European Tpunkers!

I`ve gone running in the city in various places in Europe; no big deal.

I know there are a few Gold`s Gyms in Europe.

Just checked: Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, and the UK.

Do you want to run in the Gyms? Or to lift and stuff like that? I've heard (from others on this site thank you) that it's pretty normal to run around in many European cities. Who knows, maybe you'd find some sweet athletes out on the roads!
