The Rundown:

Bull’s Gym, located in the Recoleta neighborhood, is not one of Buenos Aires’ fanciest gyms by any stretch of the imagination. What it lacks in appearance, it makes up for in originality and authenticity. If you want to feel like you are a teenager again and working out with your best friend in his garage gym then this is the place for you. Priced at 6 US dollars for a day pass, Bull’s Gym is a bargain. It houses everything you could need from free weights to benches to treadmills and ellipticals. The downside though is that there is not much space to spread out and at peak times it feels like you are a bit cramped especially if you are trying to do a HIIT workout or any kind of superset. Also, the equipment is a bit outdated forcing you to get creative with how you want to structure your workout, but I enjoyed the added challenge. It’s a local workout spot where regulars have been going for years and I was the only foreigner there when I went from what I could tell. I loved the fact that they were blasting upbeat Latin music and there was no air conditioning going to dry off your sweat. Overall, I had a great experience at Bull’s Gym and I am definitely going to go back throughout my stay in Buenos Aires. I would recommend this gym for anyone looking for a good pump, looking to meet fitness minded locals, and have a nostalgic trip down fitness memory lane.
