Why choose to train indoors?
The success of gyms and bodybuilding comes from the multiple benefits they offer. Perfectly equipped, they offer a multitude of activities to choose from to suit all needs. An advantage is also the possibility of being manned, without forgetting group lessons and any medical assistance. Women, men, whatever your level, you can start your fitness or bodybuilding sessions in the gym, choosing the club closest to your home.
Some professionals have a network of over 240 clubs located in major French cities, but also in overseas departments and territories and abroad. Most of these centers are open 7 days a week and all year round. You can also select the most suitable subscription for you to benefit from an economic formula, perfectly suited to your pace and availability. The major sports halls have devised subscription formulas designed ad hoc for all profiles, for example: student offer, youth offer 16-18 years, family, students, etc.
Choice between different activities
In a gym, you have access to a wide variety of activities around fitness and bodybuilding. From group classes to strength training, cross training and cardio training, you can choose your favorite indoor sport. Among the group sports or group lessons that are offered to you are, for example, bodypump, spinning, zumba or even stretching. Also note that you can vary your activities for less monotony and to be in better shape.

Complete, varied and quality equipment
By choosing to practice fitness, bodybuilding or any other similar discipline in the gym, you evolve into an appropriate and perfectly equipped environment. To achieve your goals it is necessary to train on specific professional machines. You can work on your body or on specific parts of your anatomy according to your needs, thanks to a multitude of adapted materials, in particular:
- The weight bench to work the pectorals, abs or biceps;
- The indoor bike, stepper, rowing machine, elliptical or spinning bike for cardio and fitness;
- Proprioception straps, mats or steps for cross training and fitness;
- Combined machines for bodybuilding.
These are materials from leading fitness and bodybuilding brands, which guarantee comfortable and safe use. By practicing fitness and bodybuilding in the gym, you will reach your goals more easily thanks to equipment designed specifically for the type of training in question.

Supervision, support, meeting and motivation
By practicing in a fitness and bodybuilding club, you benefit from quality supervision. Qualified instructors guide you throughout your sessions for better efficiency. You will be in good hands which is a plus if you are new to bodybuilding. You will follow a program adapted to your profile, which will allow you to gradually increase your performance. You can thus benefit from personalized follow-up, if necessary. Thanks to this follow-up, you do not risk getting hurt due to a workout that is not suited to your level of practice.
Your fitness or bodybuilding program can also be completely customized thanks to the expertise of a coach, who can provide you with practical advice. The role of a coach is all the more important if you need follow-up based on your health status. Thanks to the accompaniment, the risks of abandonment or loss of motivation are so minimal.
Rather than investing in very often expensive fitness or bodybuilding equipment, it is better to join a gym to train at a lower cost. Not to mention that at home you don’t always have a dedicated room or a space large enough to practice your sports activities. Going to a sports club is therefore a great alternative to home fitness.
Performance monitoring through the dedicated application
Large gyms provide you with an application to monitor your performance directly on your smartphone, but also to do many other things, such as checking your nutritional intake. The goal remains to help you achieve your goals in the best conditions while enjoying a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
