Cannes has no shortage of fit people, so it’s no surprise there are several gyms and a whole host of private studios on offer to keep you trim and healthy!
Fitlane is a French fitness chain, and is the biggest gym provider on the Cote d’Azur with 11 gyms in the region. There’s a Fitlane in Cannes, as well as ones in the nearby towns of Cannes le Bocca and Juan les Pins. Fitlane gyms cater for bodybuilding, cardio training, coaching, power plate lessons, and squash, and and offer the Zumba and LesMils group fitness classes. Fitlane does advertise on English sites, so they do cater to English speakers…to an extent. You’ll find personal trainers that speak English and you’ll be able to use all the facilities including the sauna and hamman, but there aren’t designated English speaking group fitness classes, so call ahead to find out if it will be suitable for your language level.
Soft Fitness is a bodybuilding gym with some classes. You can use the equipment here for 10 euro a session- or you can join in on one of the French-speaking group fitness classes, from Jazz dance to Pilates to street dancing. This place is less shiny than Fitlane, but more affordable and a bit more ‘real’.
Fit & Fight Club is a boxing and fitness club in Cannes. There’s normal gym equipment, but also some great boxing classes, including Muay Thai. The instructor’s English is basic, but you can both probably get by. I could tell you more, but you know the rule about fightclub…
