Most gyms (German: Fitnessstudio) in Berlin offer courses like cardio, yoga, aerobic, step, burn, pilates and many more which often is included with the membership. There usually is a limited number of participants per course so registering in advance is often mandatory.
Berlin gyms offer the usual weight machines. Chest press, pull down, cable bench, leg press or extension and curl are pretty standard for every gym as well as the free weight section with barbells, dumbbells or kettlebells. Some gyms offer a special section for women and there are women-only gyms.
A less expensive option for students is using the university sports offers. You have to be enrolled as a student at one of the Berlin universities in order to choose among all offers across all universities. This daily updated website offers a list of all courses offered by the Beuth, FU, HTW, HU and TU universities, including university gyms.
Save money with multi-venue memberships for gyms
The Urban Sports Club sells memberships that give you access to countless venues in Berlin alone. The list not only includes many gyms but also all sorts of courses like climbing and bouldering, Feldenkrais, martial arts etc.
