Until recently, Parisians have typically leaned towards leisure activities like running and swimming rather than group classes and weightlifting. This new wave of luxury sports clubs opening around the city, however, has brought a tonal shift to the cultural and societal norms surrounding French gyms. Many establishments have day, month, and year passes, so you can choose based on how often you plan to go – perfect for those who don’t want to skip leg day even on vacation.

Molitor

4 Rue Nungesser et Coli, 75016 Paris, France

Located inside the historic Hôtel Molitor, this undeniably opulent gym is known as one of the most luxurious in Paris. Molitor was built in 1929 as a public pool, which held its iconic status even after it closed in 1989. This wasn’t just a place to swim, but a place to be seen. Famous stars would lounge by the water with a drink in hand – the epitome of a chic French lifestyle. After closing, Molitor became an illegal rave hotspot until it reopened as a hotel in 2015, complete with a restaurant, spa, and world-class gym. Day passes cost €180 per person, but monthly and yearly passes are also available. Those with yearly passes are privy to some extra perks, such as discounts on food and beverages, SpabyClarins treatments and products, room reservations, a free one-hour massage, and more.
