Doglio Club: Cagliari European City of Sport
The Doglio Club in Palazzo Doglio, a luxury hotel in the heart of one of the historic districts of Cagliari, is a relaxing environment that focuses on the balance between mind and body with wellness and fitness.
In 2017 Cagliari won an important prize for being the European Sport City, an important recognition for the Sardinian capital which now has a new center dedicated to wellness, beauty, and body care: the Doglio Club.
Doing sport is good for psychophysical health because it improves postural balance, cardio-respiratory functions, and the quality of sleep, it strengthens the skeletal apparatus, tones the muscles, awakens the metabolism, increases the awareness of your body, and lowers stress levels.
Besides, physical activity stimulates the production of molecules that promote good mood like endorphins and serotonin which regulate circadian rhythms, synchronizing the sleep-wake cycle, body temperature, sense of hunger and satiety, and participate in numerous biological functions.
Doglio Club has studied a fitness proposal divided between indoor activities and outdoor training programs, aligned to the last frontier of “building health in the city” so to offer a training system that becomes a lifestyle to practice in your everyday life.
Doglio Club: the fitness offer with a Mindfulness approach
The Doglio Club of Palazzo Doglio is a wellness center where because of the Mindfulness approach, one can disconnect from the rest of the world and reconnect with one’s self so to re-establish harmony between mind and body.
The wellness area, made in part with natural materials and designed to ensure privacy, silence, and respect for the environment, is divided between the elegant Spa and the innovative Fitness Room equipped with revolutionary equipment signed Technogym including the new Skillrun, so one can have cardio and strengthening workouts with just one device using video lessons and perhaps racing against others on the tapis roullant, also the first indoor rowing machine and the latest model of Technogym bike with which you can train in a class of indoor cycling online under the guidance of your favorite trainers are available.
In line with the Mindfulness philosophy, the personal trainer team has studied remise en forme courses to regain shape and health, and customized courses to strengthen balance, endurance, and stability.
The fitness proposal includes outdoor training programs with a wide choice of exceptional locations to perform physical activity in the open air. Training by the sea or the park, and special events such as sunset trekking on the Sella del Diavolo, are possible all year round thanks to the Mediterranean climate that makes Cagliari and surroundings perfect places to visit in any season.

In the fitness and wellness Mindfulness area, you can discover the benefits of personalized treatments and the precious line Skin Care signed Natura Bissé, a leading company in research, development, and innovation for skincare, on which Doglio Club holds the brand exclusively for Sardinia.
The exclusive club of Palazzo Doglio, complicit in the revolutionary collections of Natura Bissè, offers a completely natural treatment method that allows us to obtain exceptional results at a physical and mental level because of the holistic approach.
When talking about body care we cannot neglect food because, as the German philosopher Ludwig Feuerbach used to say, “We are what we eat”. Nutrition affects not only the health of the body but also that of the mind and the psychological and spiritual processes.
To offer the guests of the Doglio Club a deep and complete wellness experience, the Osteria del Forte has thought of a mindful eating proposal to learn to eat in harmony with the needs of your body and improve your eating behavior.
