Gone are the days when a Parisian exercise regime consisted of a daily stroll to the corner bakery. The global fitness boom has finally landed on French soil and these 12 trendy fitness studios, offering everything from spinning and yoga classes to boot camps and barre workouts, are the best in the capital.
Over 2,500 Parisians ride with Dynamo every week, including celebrities like Léa Seydoux. The soundtrack to each candlelit, bilingual, 45-minute class is unique and there’s also a twice monthly DYNAMOLIVE session with a DJ or drummer. The studio collaborates with brands like Nike, Lululemon, Kitsuné, and colette on clothing, classes, and exclusive events. Reservations are made online and the weekly schedule goes live on Mondays at noon. The studio supplies everything you’ll need (water, towels, lockers, hair ties, Cowshed bath and body products), apart from your workout gear.
Conquer Your Day is that kind of chill approach to working out that only a Parisian could have come up with. Romain Rainaut and his team of CYD ambassadeurs are at the head of the motivational cross-training movement. You can join it by signing up on Facebook and attending your first evening session. The group, which can number dozens of people, meet at 8pm at a different spot in Paris, everywhere from Montmartre to Odéon, for a 30-minute run followed by a 25-minute workout and 5-minute stretch. Afterwards, you can cap off the conquering of your day with an apéro.
