MONTALCINO'S GYM: KEEPING FIT IN BRUNELLO TOWN


The gentle hills of the Val d'Orcia in spring with vineyards, green fields and wildflowers


I'd suggest you just jog, walk or cycle through the amazing Tuscan hills (for a bike just ask at Montalcino's petrol station for noleggio biciclette - bicycles to rent). But if your workout isn't a workout, unless it happens in a restricted and smelly indoor space - Montalcino does have a gym too. 

The town's fitness studio is tiny - people here tend to get enough exercise in the vineyards - and centrally located in the Pianello neighborhood close to Montalcino's hospital (just in case). A day pass is available for 10 Euro and special deals may be possible if you stay for a full week. Stop by or call Carla beforehand, who co-owns the gym and speaks excellent English. 

Carla also teaches a great Zumba class. And she definitely knows how to pump up the volume.

Ask for la palestra in Italian. Free short stay parking at the hospital.

In case you like the outdoor fun but miss the fitness club machinery, try Ornella and Lionel's approach at Montalcino's Cupano winery.

If you overdid it altogether, the Genesis gym has a physiotherapist right next door (the entrance to the left, also called Genesis). Or just book a reflexology or Shiatsu massage at Yantra. The studio is beautifully designed and the beauticians also do a good manicure or make sure you can wear that new bikini to the hotel pool, or yes - to the gym.
