Fitness options in Playas del Coco

Y & V Gym in Playas del Coco Costa RicaY & V Gym in Playas del Coco Costa RicaMaintaining a healthy lifestyle in Playas del Coco is easier than you may think.  There are two gyms, Y&V Gym and Coco Gym, that are available to those that live in the area.  The gym outside of town is called Y&V Gym and Wellness Center.  It is located about 5 minutes drive from Coco on theInside Y&V Gym in Playas del Coco corner intersection of the main road to Sardinal, and the road to the Riu.
Y&V's hours are Monday-Friday 7am-10am and 2pm-8pm, and Saturday 7am-noon
In addition to unlimited use of the equipment, they offer a Zumba fitness class on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 7pm.  Membership is $30/month.
The feeling I got from inside is that it is more of your basic place to work out.  It was a "no frills" place that was open air to the outside with fans circulating the air, and some lights missing inside.  The price is very reasonable, but you must be willing to drive the 5 minutes out of Coco for each workout.  It gets the job done for the budget conscience person that needs use of decent equipment.


Coco Gym in Pacifico Center Playas del Coco Costa Rica

Inside Coco Gym in Playas del CocoThe other gym that is available is the Coco Gym in Playas del Coco.  This facility is in the heart of Coco within the Pacifico Retail center across from the Auto Mercado.  This is a much newer building with air conditioning throughout, and state of the art equipment.  The feeling inside this gym is more of a modern "North American" facility that one would expect to see in your local neighborhood back home.

The hours of Coco Gym are 6am-8pm Monday-Friday, and 8am-1pm Saturday & Sunday.  The monthly membership fee is $50 and includes basic training from a licensed trainer along with access to the spin and Zumba classes.  An added bonus to being a member of the Coco Gym is that you can enroll in the Coco Crossfit classes as well.  This class is outdoors and focuses on strength training, metabolic conditioning, and gymnastic movements.  The Crossfit trainer is officially licensed and also teaches the class the discipline to never give up.  This class is an additional fee to join.  The 3-day a week class is $85 per month, and the 5-day a week class is $100 per month.

Coco Gym Spinning, Crossfit and Zumba Classes

I have friends who are enrolled in the cross-fit class, and they only have positive things to say about it.  Coco Gym has many of the local residents as members.  Though it is slightly more expensive than the alternative, I believe you really get your money's worth by investing in your health at Coco Gym.  Pura Vida!
