Like many others, I’ve had my fair share of German bakery goodies, heaps of gouda cheese and at least 5 ice creams a week while living in Düsseldorf. Here’s a little inspiration to get us back into the swing of fitness while living in Düsseldorf. Because I know I’m not the only one on a budget, here is a price comparison of the fitness gyms in Dusseldorf (conveniently from cheapest to most expensive).

Since I have not been to all of these gyms in Dusseldorf myself, I have used this information from what they offer online (some prices harder to find for obvious reason). I ask more now than ever that if you’ve found they charge more upon arrival, offer poor services or offer more than what I’ve credited them for, please leave a comment below!
(because this looks like me on a motivated day… and it makes me laugh)
Want in on a little secret?
There are many more ways to get in your exercise while living #LifeInDüsseldorf, consider checking out the many sport groups, soccer/football clubs, badminton courts, etc. around the area. Getting a little more specific, here are my personal secrets for working out:
The city of Düsseldorf actually provides a “sport in the park” workout opportunity for FREE! It stars on May 2, 2016 – October 9, 2016 this year (dates may vary by year). Workouts are run almost every day in locations across the city.
This is my favorite place in the winter and summer for badminton (and I never even liked badminton before). They’ve got an awesome restaurant and bar, a fitness studio, multiple indoor badminton courts and a huge outdoor beach volleyball space. This is a great place to bring friends and family and you can pay per day/hour for most activities.
There’s one more place that I’m not sharing with you online to save the preciousness (is that a word?) of the spot. I take workout classes in a school gym who offer yoga, Zumba, dance, Pilates, aerobics and more for 60 Euros per year. If you’ve managed to read to the bottom of the post, you deserve it!
