If you didn’t get enough of a fitness fix on the Cinta Costera, there are plenty of options left (some pretty exotic) to find just the right fit for you along Balboa Avenue.
The Akila Yoga Institute, Electro-body Center or Udaan Fit Gym for aerial and functional training might be what you’re looking for — all with custom-made plans to get you looking your best. At Animo Express Gym, a spectacular $19.99/month gets you unlimited access to great, modern equipment, a real steal in the city.
Balboa Avenue is also home to some of the classiest spas in the city. Rossana Tabares Medical Spa, inside Balboa Boutiques, is favored by celebrities and others in the know. If you prefer to unwind in a less star-studded setting, the first Eforea Spa in Latin America opened up inside the Hilton, decked out with a couples room, steam, sauna, hydrotherapy and a whole host of treatments and services. Rock Spa does it all for a real rockstar treatment: with music on top, as sound vibrations and organic products (plus seaweed, clay, mud) apparently go hand in hand.
Blending Hair Studio is our go-to for ladies cuts and color (as well as make-up and mani-pedis), while Salvador Uomo is an upscale barbershop and spa for men. This article is part of our Ultimate Guide To Living And Investing On Balboa Avenue.
