Gym potential

The Algarve has the most potential for the growth of gymnasiums in the country and could prove to be lucrative, according to the regional director of the association of gymnasiums and sports academies in Portugal (AGAP), Afonso Júlio.

He said that the region’s potential has been noticed by international gymnasium companies, Virgin Active and Holmes Place, which have expressed an interest in investing in the Algarve. They would like to construct gyms and it is possible they will be located on the premises of hotels due for completion this year. There are currently only around 30 official gymnasiums in the Algarve.
