The best places for your workout without breaking the bank - Map Your City Skip to main content

The best places in the world for your workout.

Behind on your training schedule? Hard to find a gym that suits your work hours - or don't know where to look for one when you are in a new city? Our team rounded up some of the best places in the world for your training goals.

Working out doesn’t have to cost a lot

G etting your regular dose of exercise helps to keep you in shape. Especially in the midst of a pandemic, where we are stuck at home or find our gyms closed, keeping to a schedule of regular workouts seems hard. But that really doesn’t have to be the case. We’ve rounded up some of the best places to work-out in the world.

And guess what? Many of those are actually in the public domain and free to access! So no membership fees or the need to train within a venue’s opening hours.

We’ve rounded up the world’s best and these are some of our award winners. If you’re looking for more training spots, you can just filter using the tag “For Sport Lovers” when exploring on Map Your City.

1. The Underline, Miami

M apped by Inside Cities Magazine – this place beneath Miami’s Metrorail is an excellent example of how cities can be much more creative with unused open spaces. Over 10 miles of unused space is being transformed by the city of Miami into a linear park, urban trail, and public art destination.

 

2. Konditaget Lüders, Copenhagen

T his recreational space is built on the roof of a parking structure, 24 meters above ground. It has already been playfully dubbed as “Park and Play”.

3. The Pigalle, Paris

S andwiched between a pair of apartment buildings in Paris is the Pigalle basketball court – where air balls and alley-oops meet artistic intervention.

4. The Bentway, Toronto

M uch like the Underline The Bentway was an underutilized area in Toronto. A large area under the Gardiner Expressway that has been transformed into a multi use park.

5. Vans Skate Park, Montreal

J une 2021 Montreal unveiled the massive new section at the Vans Skatepark, which complements the pro-level 900-square-metre concrete bowl that was completed in 2019 to host the Canadian stop of the Vans Park Series competition.
