COVID UPDATE 29th July 2021: At the time of writing, Tenerife has been placed in ‘Level 4’ Covid status, which introduces a much-hated requirement to produce a Covid Health Certificate (Double-vaccinated / Negative test within 72 hours / proof of recovery antibodies etc) in order to sit in the indoor sections of bars/restaurants or to use indoor sports facilities. Gym users should therefore expect to be asked for such proof upon checking into a gym, until further notice.
Tenerife is all about lifestyle and living well. Surrounded by so many fantastic restaurants and an ample supply of bargain priced alcohol and tobacco, many of us are looking for ways to offset the effects of such pleasurable indulgences.
The good news is that experts have determined that nothing boosts your mental and physical well-being quite like plenty of sleep and regular exercise.
Fortunately, when it comes to exercise, visitors and residents in Tenerife are spoilt for choice. There are a wealth of options for both indoor and outdoor exercise, sports and activities. However, many of us respond well to the routine of going to a gym or fitness centre.
Below are a just few of the gyms and fitness centres located in Tenerife South. However, we hope to expand the list to cover other areas of the island in the near future.
N.B. The following gyms are open to the paying public. We have not included various hotel-based gyms, some of which may also offer full or limited public access to paying non-guests. We have also omitted any gyms that have no English webpage or other internet presence in English.

8. Crossfit27 Tenerife (Torviscas Alto)
Tired of typical gyms and looking for something completely different? Then why not try Crossfit?
Crossfit27 Tenerife is not just another remedy to get fit. It is not just another class in a conventional gym alongside other group classes. And above all, it´s not a training method that can be applied by any coach unless they have studied Crossfit correctly.
Crossfit is not about simply combining exercises to form a circuit. It is not a functional exercise, nor is it pure cardio. It isn’t about getting big, and it is not about injuring yourself by lifting weights.
Crossfit has no limits. From elite athletes to your own grandmother, everyone can and should improve their fitness. Increase your workout capacity. You’ll be stronger, faster and better prepared for any task at any time.
You will benefit from a significant decrease in body fat and increased muscle mass. You won’t get massively bigger, but you will become stronger, whilst improving your flexibility, coordination, agility, balance, accuracy and movement technique. Endurance, strength, power and speed come with time.
