This is a member's-only fitness club located on the top two floors of the Crystal Plaza Building (you get a great view from the pool!). Facilities include two aerobics studios with a range of classes, including Box Fitness, a large cardio-training area, machine weights, a 25-meter pool and a large bathing/sauna area. Membership types and prices vary, but this is one of the more expensive clubs in Hiroshima.
The YMCA fitness center, known as WAAP, caters for all levels of fitness and offers a range of programs and activities. Facilities include a 25-meter pool (divided into three lanes), a full basketball court, training room, aerobics studio, and a tennis court. The aerobics program includes Hip Hop, Funk, Step and Beginners, and there are also regular lessons in the pool, from water confidence for adults to children's lessons, aqua-aerobics, and scuba-diving training.
This huge, three-floor fitness club caters to every fitness need, from rooftop tennis to hip-hop aerobics. Facilities include a large cardio-training area and a good range of weights, as well as a 25-meter pool, three squash courts, tennis courts and a golf practice range. The club offers a variety of memberships as well as casual visits for various prices, but squash and tennis (charged separately) are not included in the membership fees.
The word "sento" meaning public bath, is charming, though not quite as nice as an "onsen" (spa). Nevertheless, it is quite sufficient for relaxing in soothing waters. But besides the various baths, there are also Jacuzzis, steam saunas and other facilities designated for relieving you of any stress and fatigue. The price is not too bad either.
