Hello! I'm moving to Lyon in a month, and I would like to know of what gyms there are which have the usual cardio equipment and their prices. I'm finding it a little difficult to find them online. I'm looking to move to arrondissement 4, 1 or 6. Also, are there gyms which provide classes in English? I'm learning French so I hope that I can eventually join a normal class, but at this point I'm not sure I'm confident in my ability to both translate instructions and do them without a 5 min delay! Thanks for any help you can give! Wai Yin
Hello sport enthusiasts out there in Lyon! I'm looking to find friends to participate in at least one of the sports listed above because being outside or playing sports are the best way to destress after a long day of whatever that we do! I'm friendly and outgoing and I don't bite, promise!!! Drop me mesg and let's go! Note: I'm an intermediate player in tennis currently ranked 15/4 and often play competitively I've been playing squash & badminton on and off for many years. I still like to keep playing I love rollerblading and it'd be cool find peeps to go do the Friday night rollerblading escapade in Lyon! I did it once in Paris and loved it! I also like to start up a book club if anyone is into that kind of nerdy stuff--hehe ;) Joyous :)
Hi all, This may very well have been answered before, but I can't find a reference to it. Does anyone know of a gym, a typical gym with running machines, cross trainers, weight machines, weights, and maybe even a pool that DOES NOT require a monthly membership or a joining fee? I just want to pay as I go, which I am not having a lot of luck with! Preferably near the 6th, but not vital! Thank you David
Hello, I am wondering if anyone knows of any English choir groups in Lyon. It has been awhile since I have sung in a choir, but I'm looking to get involved and meet some new people. I don't really enjoy singing in French as much, which is why I'm looking for an English choir. I haven't had any luck finding anything besides Gospel choirs. Thanks for your help! Allison
I have heard there is a ski bus that leaves from Lyon that goes to some ski areas. Does anyone know more information ? Where it picks up, where it goes, dates, cost, time etc? My husband is here in school and while he is in school, I hope to do as much skiing as possible this winter exploring the alps, but I do not have a car so it is public transportation.
Is anyone interested in meeting up for casual runs in the morning (ca 7:30 AM) and/or weekends? I know there is a meetup organized for this here: http://www.meetup.com/Lyon-AngloINFO-English-Speakers-Meetup/ but I don't yet have access to that group and thought I would reach out here.

Hello, we are brand new to Lyon and this website. We come from the east coast in the USA and are big fans and players of lacrosse. I play in a mens league and coach and my children all play. I see that France had a team in the World Championships. Does anyone know if there are any teams that play in Lyon at any level? Thanks for any info.
Hi, I'm on the lookout for an amateur choir of quite a good level to sing with. I'm not looking specifically for an anglophone choir, or a choir of any particular genre - just looking for a good sing ! Does anyone know of any good choirs out there ? or a good place to look ? Thank you !
