Brussels is one of the greenest of Europe's capitals, and the city is a great place to walk, cycle or run. The heavy rainfall in the city can be a deterrent, though. Luckily, the capital has made the most of the fitness craze with an abundance of both indoor and outdoor health clubs and spas to make days a little less grey.

Recommended fitness facilities in Brussels


Aspria has a few locations in Brussels, and all are equipped with fitness studios with the latest modern equipment. These clubs also offer top-notch classes ranging from Pilates to bodybuilding, spinning, aqua, and step.

These clubs are beautifully maintained and offer a tranquil atmosphere. A membership is needed to take advantage of the fitness facilities or classes. There are often specials on membership fees, especially in the quieter months.

David Lloyd Leisure

Another upmarket club popular with expats is David Lloyd in Uccle. Located in the majestic, leafy setting of a château in the south of Brussels, the club allows members to devote their time to well-being and leisure.

The grand setting includes a gym, studios for group sessions, tennis courts, leisure facilities, a crèche, a lounge restaurant and bar, a beauty and hair salon and indoor parking.

Corpus Studios

Corpus Studios in Ixelles is focused on Pilates, with communal classes and private instruction available seven days in several languages. Full memberships are available, but classes can also be paid for individually or purchased in a bundle of five classes.
