We’ve put together some of the questions we’re most frequently asked, which we hope will be of some use to you. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
How do I find you?
Just use our Location page – we are located in the San Pedro Poligono (industrial estate) and are opposite the Policia Local Station.
Is there car parking?
There is on street car parking, but at the busiest times this may not be possible. However, there is a totally free grass car park 2 minutes walk from the gym at the top of our street (Calle Chipre). This always has plenty of free car parking space.
Can I get to you using public transport?
There are many public buses that will take you to San Pedro and from there, a taxi would take 5 minutes and cost under €5.
Is there a swimming pool and spa?
No, there is no pool or spa. We are a results focused training facility and not necessarily the best fit for those of you who want to relax at the gym!
Can I train indoors and outdoors?
Yes you can! We have 500sq m / 5000sq feet of indoor training space, and the same again outdoors on astro turf for more active, functional style training.
What about the UP Dojo?
The Dojo is a separate part of the gym where various martial arts classes take place. Preferential places are reserved for UP members – see The Dojo for more information.
Do you have showers?
Yes we do – we may not be a spa but we do like to keep clean!
Can I transfer my membership to other Ultimate Performance gyms?
No you cannot. Our Marbella gym is unique in the UP business in that it is the only membership gym. All the rest of our facilities across the world are exclusively for personal training.

What type of people train at Ultimate Performance Marbella?
We cater for all types of members at our Marbella Gym. There is just one unifying goal – that everyone wants to improve. The gym is set up to help you achieve whatever goal you may have and is unique in its scope and culture in Southern Europe.
Is the gym just for big guys lifting weights?
Not in the slightest. The Ultimate Performance Marbella gym is for anyone who wants to make a change to their bodies. We accept memberships from big and small, fat and thin, fit and unfit alike and actively pursue a culture of acceptance and tolerance. We do not mind you training hard, sweating on our machines, or making noise in the gym. We do not mind if you throw weights around sometimes, but we do mind every time if an individual throws HIS weight around. In circumstances such as this we are prepared to ask the wrong elements to leave the gym.
Will I be shown how to use the equipment?
We always aim to have a qualified Personal Training professional on hand to give you guidance in the gym although this differs from the time spent doing actual one-to-one coaching. All members who sign up to a 3 month membership will receive a 30 minute induction with one of our PTs where they can ask any training/nutrition question they might have or do quick 30 minute session.
