Once best known for late nights that lasted until morning, Madrid has made an about face. Recently bitten by the fitness bug, locals find many places to shape up, the best example of which is the expansive O2 Wellness and Beauty Center. This for-women-only experience — where exercise, fitness, well-being, and beauty outposts give you a chance to work out in a city-block-sized club — impresses with its aqua therapy pool, featuring four hot and cold underwater massage areas. Beauty treatments and fitness classes abound for visitors who are always welcome.
