Uganda’s Capital City Kampala has gyms but The City Gym has no equal. It’s the only upscale gym in the city centre that offers unique fitness programs for people of all ages and interests at a reasonable cost.

Located on Boulivard Building, 4th Floor, Kampala Road, The modern gym, neighbouring corporate offices in the city, is fully manned by the professionals in body building and fitness. The trainers take keen interest in their clients so as to achieve positive results and get value for the money spent.

And this care has made trainees fall in love with taking care of their bodies to the extent that they are proud of the gym and are not shy to recommend it to friends who would like to cut off the unnecessary weight.

“I Was in Kampala for just three days, visited The City Gym as my hotel had a tie up with them. Believe me the floor space is so much, it can accumulate three medium size gymnasiums within,” says Ruth Akatuluth, a foreign tourist who was in Kampala in March this year.

Ruth was all happy as she went through Zumbaholics, aerobics classes and spin classes. “Healthy and diet food, good equipment and best in town. A must visit for the feel of exuberance and if you are passionate enough for a healthy and fun lifestyle,” she says.

“The best gym in town, with the best gym facilities and also with a convenient location right in the city center,” says another foreign trainee who prefers to remain anonymous. She says when she comes back on holiday in December, The City Gym is the place she won’t resist to visit.

Those foreign visitors but what do local ‘Kampalans’ say about The City Gym?

Charles Odongo Fredrico,  a Kampala business manager, has so much love for the gym. He says, “The city gym is a nice place for a real workout. I love that place.” Odongo says since he joined the gym some time back, he has gained the fitness he desired and can walk the streets of Kampala showing off his body.

Excellent service and world class equipment all at a great price. I was well handled like a baby, every gym equipment is there so my friend let’s go support them,” says another user of the gym. I also appreciate their work hours of 6am to 10pm Monday to Sunday.
