The quotation mens sana in corpore sano dates twenty centuries back. In a time when there’s twice the number of health clubs in Lisbon than those that exist in public health centres, six characters, from 24 to 70 years old, explain to us their reasons for visiting a popular “health club” in the Portuguese capital on a regular basis. The body as the ultimate idea of cult.
