Gyms in or near Puerto Varas

Post by poseidon » Wed Jun 13, 2012 10:08 am

Does anybody know if therea re gyms in Puerto Varas or close by?
I have a complete and almost new gym equipment here in Asia and am asking myself if it would be a good idea to ship all
to Chile and open a new gym there. Are the chileans health conscious or are gyms there as often to find as water on the moon?
I dont mean in Santiage, in the los Lagos area.

yea, I charge by hour to come split my firewood, walk my dog, and so on. Guess I would offer a group membership, if you really wanted one.

That said, there is a rather extensive network of soccer moms with money to spend on gyms in PV, and nothing to do. There are gyms however there. No idea about what they have.

most of the gyms I know of in Puerto Varas are in the larger hotels, and membership is available to the paying general public. At least that's the case at Patagonico, Cumbres Patagonicas (originality, never!), Dreams (or Enjoy, or whatever), and there is one near the limo shop (yes..weird, very), called Iron Gym.
there may be more. Soccer moms go to the various yoga and pilates places

a lot of people running and cycling, even this time of year,

better the firewood splitting and stacking

Thanks for the input, it looks like in this region there are still sufficient intelligent options available
which could keep people away from needing a gym against physical detoriation.

There is another small gym with little equipment and fewer patrons in P.V. in the main part of town. As I am too lazy to attend such a place I did not take notice of it's exact location.
Some people we know go to the Casino as they apparently have a good facility.
I would look into the requirements of a foreigner owning a business. Just to buy gas paperwork is involved.
Best of luck!
