Rome is not an ideal home for large fitness operators, especially implementing gyms in the central area of this ancient town. Although Anytime Fitness and Virgin Active have a handful of gyms in Rome, however, none of them is located in the city center.
Here are some gyms that you can search for within the central location of Rome.

Moves Gym is equipped with essential machines and spacious dressing rooms. On top of gym classes, it offers other courses such as Zumba, Pilates, Classic and Funk Dance, Yoga, and Tai Chi-Qi Gong, to name a few. It is known to be a small but attractive facility that is divided into two sections — one for weights and machines, the other for conducting classes.
It might not be as appealing for tourists who are visiting Rome as per entry are priced at €15. However, a longer-term commitment at this gym would be worthwhile as memberships are priced at €750 annually.

4. CrossFit Villa Albani
CrossFit Villa Albani is a gym offering high-intensity interval & weight training instruction multiple times daily, which mainly focuses on CrossFit training style. The lessons are held with no more than 15 people per session which allows instructors and coaches to concentrate on their students. CrossFit Villa Albani is also known to host multiple outdoor CrossFit events as well.
If you are looking for a fancy gym, my warning is - do not go to this gym. However, I am certain you will find a fitness family there, where coaches and fitness enthusiasts share the same passion for CrossFit. The entry fee is €15. You are bound to make your money worth through a sweaty and heated session!
