Oh if only keeping fit actually is easy. People would be exercising left and right and everywhere in between. Anyways, at least there are gyms and fitness centers out there to make the process all the more enjoyable. Here in Rome, there's the EasyFitClub. It has all the facilities and amenities you'll need for a nice gym and more. Apart from the usual equipment, they also have a nice warm jacuzzi so you could help your muscles relax after an intense workout!
Located near the Vatican, Ego Yoga is a fitness center where you can really get your stretching going. Make no mistake, even though this is more of a yoga studio, the workouts here can get really intense. If you're just a new yogi, this probably isn't the place for you. They do power yoga here, doing all sorts of complicated poses and the most complex positions in the exercise. At the end of every session, you would have worked up quite a sweat!

Although Rome serves up a lot of sweets, this "Hard Candy" isn't the type to add fat to your body. On the contrary, it will do just the opposite. Set just near the iconic Colleseum, this American-style gym is all about giving you the workout you need to feel the burn. Oh, and what a burn you'll feel! This trendy fitness hotspot stacks of weights, cardio machines, and more! Not to mention they play quite the bombastic tunes here too!

It's easy to think, by its name alone, that Healthcity is probably one of Rome's fine hospitals and such. But it's not! In fact, Healthcity is a well-known chain of gyms in Italy. There's one in Milan and, of course, there's one in the country's capital. Though it's slightly smaller as compared to other gyms on this list, it does the job in giving you ample space and the right equipment so you could exercise better. And in, turn, remain healthy yourself!

Ironically, however, it's Heaven Villa that's more of a health center—or rather, health club—than Healthcity. While many parts still operate as a standard gym, the place serves as a less clinical space for recovering patients to improve their conditions. From water aerobics to medical therapy, the setting helps people feel more normal despite their current health problems. But if you're perfectly healthy yourself, this shouldn't stop you from making use of their general facilities to maintain your fitness.

At first visit, you may dismiss Linea Fitness as another ordinary gym. Though it's high-quality, you might not get what's so special about it at first. However, if you love martial arts and what to learn more about it or improve your skills at it, this is the gym for you. Somehow, you probably didn't think that Romans weren't the type to embrace martial arts, did you? But alas, the city as chock-full of gyms that focus on that. This one is just one of the best!

Similarly, Monti Fitness is another gym that's all about martial arts. Set in the beautiful Monti district, one of the must-visit neighborhoods of Rome, this gym is all about the art of movement. There's already martial arts, which is a more intense exercise that's also used for self-defense. And on the more artsy side, they also hold dance classes here. Ballerinas are some of the fittest people in the world, and this place not only teaches you how to move as gracefully as them but also workout like one too.

As that famous song goes, "You've got to move it, move it!" You won't get to your goal weight if you don't. This is probably why this great gym in Rome's downtown area was simply named a such. With their complete sets of equipment, ample workout space, and more, you can really move a lot and therefore, shed a lot of weight as well. They also hold a fascinating tai chi class here, so if you're interested, you'd know where to go!
