The scope and scale of the UP Marbella offering has created a gym the likes of which Europe has never seen before. We have gone all out to build a masterpiece. The 5,000 square foot first floor interior gym is dedicated to resistance training in the manner that you’d expect of anything UP related, and as a standalone gym it will be unique in Southern Europe. If you add the 5,000 square feet of astro turf right next to the gym then we are talking about something that starts to go beyond being “a little bit special”. We will be pushing cars, heaving logs, and doing every type of outdoor strongman / conditioning drill you can imagine, all whilst those of you who love to pump up workout in the 1,500 square foot outdoor “weight pit’. Venice Beach comes to Marbella but without the crowds of gawkers!
All of this is capped off by a 5,000 square foot roof terrace with a 360 degree panoramic view of Marbella’s famous La Concha mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. This will be a place to unwind after a workout, stretch out, or listen to lectures in our new UP classroom. There will also be a barbecue for special events, of which we plan to have many! The relaxed upper deck is culturally going to be a million miles away from the hard training below it. The rules of UP Marbella are going to be pretty simple – respect, enjoyment, and education. Members will be taught how to train for their goals, safe exercise, the right amount of effort to match the right goal, how to use all our equipment properly, and how to share equipment sensibly. And if you want to make a mobile phone on the gym floor then think twice, because to do so will see you get a one week ban from the gym!
Despite all these features and the scope and scale of our vision, what’s going to catapult the gym into greatness is the people who work there, the clients it will attract, and the environment that we cultivate. Let us know if you want to be part of that history.

Is there a swimming pool and/or spa?
No, there is no pool or spa. We are a results focused training facility and not necessarily the best fit for those of you who want to relax at the gym.
Can I train indoors and outdoors?
Yes you can! We have 500sq m / 5000sq feet of indoor training space, and the same again outdoors on astro turf for more active, functional style training.
What about the UP Dojo?
The Dojo is a separate part of the gym where various martial arts classes take place. Preferential places are reserved for UP members.
Do you have showers?
Yes we do – we may not be a spa but we like to keep clean!
Is there car parking?
There is on-street car parking but at the busiest times this may not be possible. There is a totally free grass car park 2 minutes walk from the gym at the top of our street (Calle Chipre). This always has plenty of free car parking space.
Can I get to you using public transport?
There are many public buses that will take you to San Pedro and from there a taxi would take 5 minutes and cost under €5.
