Do you know good gyms in Lisbon, Portugal?


in Lisbon, Portugal by @chappupi | 5yr  | 4 comments

Hi!
I just moved to Lisbon, Portugal. Iโ€™m in the Alfama district, near Santa Apolรณnia metro.
Iโ€™d really like to find a gym which has weights and cardio machines. It looks like there are incredibly few options in Lisbon - and all extremely expensive.

If you want to, you can also try Crossfit (fitness but better).

The Crossfit Bakery is such a nice place, I went there several times, coaches are friendly and helpful.

Better way to stay fit working cardio & muscles thank fitness club :slight_smile:

When I was staying in Alfama, I was walking to Envy Health & Fitness (R. do Carmo 29.) Itโ€™s a high-end gym thatโ€™s very beautiful, but a little compressed. I went in the mornings and it was often very quiet, itโ€™s not a gym that will work well if there are many people at once. Itโ€™s worth to check it out. If I remember correctly it was a bit pricey, but I felt I was getting the value.

HI @joshadamlevy , you moved into one of the โ€œtouristicโ€ zones. Not the best place to live IMO.

Try to find a FitnessHut nearby, itโ€™s cheap and itโ€™s pretty decent if you avoid the peak hours (5 to 8 pm).

I live right beside Av. Roma, where Centro Supera just opened. Itโ€™s a massive gym with pool, spa and a lot of stuff and their plans go from as low as 27โ‚ฌ / month.

Thanks for the reply. Very helpful.

Indeed, the people of Alfama seem to keep fit by walking up and down all the winding stairs in the area. There isnโ€™t a single gym.

I checked out Envy. Yes, it is beautiful. Yes, it is pricey (65 euros per month - and only with a 3 month+ contract). Yes, it is cramped and has an awkward layout. I felt uncomfortable there. It felt cramped, and even with only 4 people in the weight room. It also felt quite pretentious.

The Fitness Huts arenโ€™t near Alfama, although they look great. Instead, I found a place called โ€˜ginasio fabrica do fisico.โ€™ It is a 13 minute bus ride from my flat in the Alfama (I have a monthly public transit pass, which costs 35 euros per month). The gym costs 29 euros per month and there is no contract. The gym is huge, uncrowded, and clean but not pretentious.

If you are staying for a few days in the cityโ€™s old center, Envy is a great option to treat yourself. For a longer stay, I highly recommend Ginasio Fabrica do Fisico.

Where do you work from in Lisbon? ๐Ÿงณโ˜•

 

in Lisbon, Portugal by @dominiksobe | 18h 17 hours ago | 1 comment

Hi everyone,

I am going to move to Lisbon in July and I was wondering where you guys work from? Do you have any recommendations for working on a budget? Any good cafรจs or cheap coworking spaces?

I did some research and found some coworking spaces for > ~ 100โ‚ฌ p. month which is pretty reasonable but too much for me right now.

Thanks!

My first time nomad-ing... Spain or Portugal?


in Portugal by @jasraj | 5mo 5 months ago | 6 comments

Hey everyone,

Iโ€™m a freelance + nomad newbie, off for my 1st proper trip in May. Iโ€™m wanting to spend a month somewhere and go from there.

I just came back from Slovenia/Ljubljana and loved it there (just a week). I donโ€™t mind โ€œsleepierโ€ places par-say, as long as theyโ€™re close to a beach or nature of some kind. In fact, I kinda like places less-busy and a bit smaller/cosier.

Iโ€™m been swaying towards Porto, but have been impressed by the rave reviews Iโ€™ve seen for Valencia.

-> Have you every nomad-ed in a Spanish/Portuguese city? Iโ€™d love to know where and what you liked/disliked :slight_smile:

Thanks! :slight_smile:

Anyone here resident in Portugal with incorporation elsewhere in the EU? Need some advice


in Portugal by @solardive | 2yr 2 years ago | 0 comments

Hi everyone!

Currently looking at ridding myself of the 9-5 and becoming a freelance consultant. Iโ€™m not planning to go full erm, โ€œtax optimisationโ€, as I believe in taxes as a concept, but I would like to pay less of them so I can get my business off the ground with more peace of mind.

Iโ€™ve decided I want to apply for the Portugal NHR (Iโ€™m a EU citizen), but I donโ€™t want to incorporate there. Anyone here has experience with being a Portugal tax resident and running a company elsewhere? If yes, where and why did you choose that country/place? Is it a a lot of hassle?

Thanks!

How to find a short-term apartment in Lisbon?


in Lisbon, Portugal by @jenny_ | 3yr 3 years ago | 10 comments

Hi everyone,

we plan to work from Lisbon from mid of April to mid of June this year and were wondering if anyone knows how to find a short-term apartment. AirBnB does not really offer much under 1000 Euro, which seems a bit high to us.

We are looking for a 1-bedroom apartment close to the city centre - budget: max 800 Euro. Can someone help?

Thanks! Jenny & Sebastian

What are the best Lisbon neighborhoods to live in?


in Lisbon, Portugal by @thefakekozy | 4yr 3 years ago | 12 comments

Hello friends :slight_smile:

Moving to Lisbon with my gf for some slow nomadism in November '16 and could really use some recommendations as to where to set up a longer term residence! I just finished about 9 months in Brasil (Portuguese is still basic, but getting better everyday) and 10 months in Australia before that. Iโ€™ve applied for the residency visa so I wonโ€™t get the boot after 90 days like most US citizens in the Schengen zone.

Looking for something somewhat trendy, with good places to eat and near public transit. Would love to keep rent under $800/month for 1bd place, but can go up to $1000. Iโ€™ve heard about Santos and Alcantara from another nomadic blog, but would appreciate any insight on favorite hoods/locations and generally getting around Lisbon.

Cheers,
Kozy

Any US citizens ever get a visa extension in Portugal?


in Portugal by @jammingsloth | 4yr 3 years ago | 7 comments

Just found out itโ€™s possible to get a 90 day tourist extension for Portugal. Spoke with the office of immigration on the phone, they said some officers even allow for the extension to be good in the rest of Schengen. Anyone done this?

And while Iโ€™m at it, any cool towns/smaller cities to check out in Portugal?

Whatโ€™s the best mobile-data option in Portugal for nomads?


in Portugal by @swynt | 4yr 3 years ago | 6 comments

Hi everyone! I will be heading to Portugal next week for around one week. I will be mostly in Lisbon and Porto. For working purpose, I need to be online for most of the time. So, could anyone give any advise which sim card and mobile data option should I get? It doesnโ€™t have to be cheap, but it should have good coverage area and big data plan (around 3 - 5 GB). Thanks.

Lisbon vs Barcelona for mid- to long-term stay: any advice?

 

in Lisbon, Portugal by @tvrhe | 4yr 4 years ago | 24 comments

Hi guys,

From this spring onwards Iโ€™m returning to Europe and Iโ€™m looking to either set up a home base in Lisbon or Barcelona. Any fellow nomads who can share their experiences of living in either of those cities?

Iโ€™ve only been to Barcelona and I like the vibe a lot. Major downside is the tourists (obviously).

To me it seems that both cities have good infrastructure, internet, climate (mediterranean), nightlife, culture, food, beaches (and Lisbon is good for surfing as well of course). Price wise, Lisbon is obviously a bit cheaper.

One important consideration is the public transport. Since Iโ€™m not looking to rent a car I prefer the city where I can travel on foot, bike or metro.

Based on my limited info, itโ€™s hard to pick one. Any advice would be very much appreciated!
