A fitness centre (fitness center in American English) is a place with exercise machines and/or fitness/dance classes. They are places to go to for exercise. Otherwise known as a gym, health club, or fitness club.

The leisure=fitness_centre tag is now the most popular tag for Gym / Fitness centre among several possibilities (See that page for stats comparisons etc)

How to map

Set a node at the centre of the fitness centre or draw an area along its outline.

Add the tag leisure=fitness_centre.

Tags to use in combination

Possible tagging mistakes

Gymnastics is generally referring to a different sport than what is practised at a fitness centre. Use sport=fitness instead if you are tagging the sport of a fitness centre/gym.

If you know places with this tag, verify if it could be tagged with another tag.
Automated edits are strongly discouraged unless you really know what you are doing!
