Sports in Seville
Staying fit has never been so easy in Seville as it is now. With the 1990’s came a craze for fitness that led to the opening of gyms and fitness centers in unprecedented numbers. In addition to the traditional weight-lifting and aerobic dancing, more “exotic” forms of sport, such as Taekwondo, Taichi or Kick-Boxing entered mainstream fitness and have become so widespread they are no longer considered exotic. Most ICS students sign up with a gym, enroll in an athletic program, or participate in some sport activity during the semester. The following is a sample of some of the many facilities available in town.
