Expat Argentina Life

Argentina Gym Culture

Part of my 2013 goals is to achieve the best physical fitness level of my life. After moving from San Francisco to C贸rdoba and getting settled into my life here, nearly a month had passed since I’d been in the gym. I was getting restless and needed to find un gimnasio.

I did a quick internet search and went about trying to locate a gym that would suit my needs. While touring the gyms in C贸rdoba I quickly found out where all the US gym equipment from the 1980’s went.

The majority of the machines where old and rusty. Some where so old I couldn’t decipher how to use them or even which muscles it was supposed to work. And I’m no spring chicken in the gym. Lending to my theory that the gym equipment here is from the US is that all the weights are still in pounds instead of kilograms.

After a couple days of searching I finally found a good gym within walking distance of my apartment that was decently priced and contained all of the equipment I need for a proper workout.
