When it comes to getting in shape, you have lots of options in Beirut. You definitely want a gym close to you so you’ll actually go to it, but also one that has the amenities that make you want to go to it.  After an exhaustive inspection of the city’s fitness centers,I confidently can compare the  city’s 3 best gyms in Beirut.

Although the 3 mentioned gym have almost no presence online, and outdated websites, they remain the best gym in town.  When you want to workout, you should know that you’re investing your health in the long term.
