the secret world of atlantis
An honest place with a motivational atmosphere and friendly prices.
Atlantis Gym has been here for over 50 years. Today it is the oldest gym in Budapest.
Borne at a time when bodybuilding was not a fad and when people ‘actually’ went to gyms to train, Atlantis was one of the first gyms in Budapest.
Today, this place is one of the last, which gives back the authentic cult of the golden age of bodybuilding—they named it Atlantis, after the sunken island from Greek mythology.
