Jetsetter99 saidOh well finding a nice gym in Paris or the Cote d azur is very hard.. most of them are overpriced and very shitty.. there is no big gym culture in France. Eat lots of protein... and try to workout 1-2 times a week at least.. there are some gay saunas in Paris which have gyms as well.. all around the Marais area.... you can go anytime as they are open 24 hrs and pay per gym session. I actually gain weight in Paris...lol.. all that french food and bread and chocolate and wine... can't keep away from it in Paris....my favourite city in the world. If you need cheap healthy food then there are kebab shops all over Paris and Nice, healthy grilled chicken made fresh.
Oh one more thing.. you can get these bike rentals by the day - all over paris.. you just pay 1 euro a day and can bike all around the city...its a good way to exercise and quite a lot of fun too.
Wow, that is one helpful thing to know!! It's funny to hear the French don't have such a gym culture, I always heard they were so keen on looks.
drypinThe very idea of going to France and losing weight makes me smile. Unless you're cycling 50+ km per day or have a deadly intolerance of lactose, I just don't see it happening.
Or you have a small stomach, low appetite and fast metabolism.
I'm really eager to try French food, I hope it's really caloric, but if it's loaded with sugar and fat, I will have to bypass it...
