1500 Huaihai Zhong Lu
This family-friendly gym is a long-running expat favourite and solid all-rounder. The big draws are the two pools: the outdoor one is more suited to sunbathing, but its indoor counterpart makes for a great place to do some quiet laps. The basement houses two small group training studios plus squash courts (40RMB/hour), while outside there’s a little-used basketball court. The third floor fitness centre is light and airy, with a decent free weights section and new-ish machines including cross-trainers, StairMasters, exercise bikes and a bank of ten treadmills looking out over Huaihai Zhong Lu. It’s rarely crowded except on Monday evenings.
