Gyms are facilities in GTA San Andreas where the player can train to improve his/her physical stats. Indoor gymnasiums are unlocked after receiving a phone call from Sweet after the mission Drive-Thru, introducing the player to gymnasiums. All Gyms are open all day, every day. If, in a single day, the player loses 40% fat or gains 20% Stamina or Muscle, the player will have to wait 12 hours before being allowed to workout again.

LocationsEdit

According to the game's in-game map, there are three major gyms located in San Andreas, each located in the state's three cities and are easily located on the map by red dumbbell icons in the legend. They include:

In addition, two more gyms, unmarked, are present in the game, including:

EquipmentEdit

Each gym is equipped with four pieces of exercise equipment:

Name Exercise Name Image Description
Treadmill Walking/Running on the Treadmill Gym-GTASA-treadmill This exercise increases Stamina and sheds Fat. The treadmill offers 10 speed levels (the higher the level, the faster your stats will change). Higher levels are easier with greater stamina. When CJ begins running, power and distance gauges, as well as a level indicator, appear on-screen. You must keep pace with the treadmill to keep the power gauge full - if it empties, you fall off.
Stationary bike Stationary Cycling Gym-GTASA-cycling This exercise increases Stamina and sheds Fat.

The stationary Bike offers 10 speed levels (the higher the level, the faster your stats will change). Higher levels are easier with greater stamina. When CJ begins cycling, power and distance gauges, as well as a level indicator, appear on-screen. You must keep cycling to keep the power gauge full - if it empties, you'll have to start over.

Bench press Barbell Bench Press - Medium Grip Gym-GTASA-benchpress This exercise increases Muscle and sheds Fat.The weights range from 40 lbs (20 kg) to 320 lbs (145 kg). When you begin, a power gauge and a reps indicator appear on-screen. You must get the power gauge to fill to complete one rep.
Dumbbells Dumbbell Bicep Curl Gym-GTASA-dumbbells This exercise increases Muscle and sheds Fat.

The weights range from 20 lbs (10 kg) to 110 lbs (50 kg). When you begin, a power gauge and a reps indicator appear on-screen. You must get the power gauge to fill to complete one rep.

Fighting stylesEdit

Each gym has a trainer with a different fighting style, but the player will only have access to them when the player has amassed enough muscles. At each, walk into the marker and reply positively when the trainer asks if you want to learn some new moves. The training takes a tutorial-type approach, with tips on-screen to tell you how to execute the moves and when. You must defeat the trainer to learn the new moves. Each teaches you a new Running Attack, Ground Attack, and Combo Attack.

  • The Ganton Gym features a Boxing trainer.
  • The Cobra Marital Arts Gym features a Kung Fu trainer.
  • The Below the Belt Gym features a Muay Thai trainer.

GlitchesEdit

There is a glitch that prevents you from using any equipment, where the game notifies you that you have trained enough, even if you haven't trained in a long time. It may be caused by any of the following:

Madd Dogg's MansionEdit

The glitch is most commonly caused by saving at Madd Dogg's mansion. It is unknown what exactly triggers this glitch, but it can be attributed to the existence of gym equipment in the mansion, making the game treat it as a gym. The best way to avoid this glitch is by not saving at Madd Dogg's mansion.

Quick SavingEdit

The glitch has also been found to happen if you save your game in two different slots, in a very short time. For example: Slot one save time is 16:13, and slot number five is 16:18, then nine times out of ten, the glitch will occur.

New Year's Eve GlitchEdit

It has been recently discovered that the glitch can also occur if CJ reaches his limit on December 31 (ingame time; the game actually tracks days and months of the year, but this is never used in actual gameplay). In this case, CJ will be unable to work out indefinitely.

The reason this occurs is because when CJ reaches his limit on a particular day, he is not allowed to work out until the next day. Since the game does not track years, there is no such day that exists after December 31, as the game's internal calendar rolls back to January 1 after December 31.

Theoretically, the probability of this glitch occurring when CJ reaches his limit is 0.3%.

TriviaEdit

  • If viewed close up using the zoom features of the camera or sniper rifle scope, players can see the logo of the Cherry Popper Ice Cream Factory on the side of any gym's dumbbells. Indeed, both the weights at the bench and the dumbbells derive their textures from those intended for wooden boxes.
  • On the mobile version of the game, the dumbbells and the barbell are silver instead of golden.
  • Gyms were originally going to be featured in Grand Theft Auto V, but this activity was cut before release. Franklin can be seen working out at the Muscle Sands Gym in the Switch Scenes, possibly that it was the activity for Franklin only in the beta.
