Sportsclub In Heraklion

04 September 2007 - 11:12 AM

I'm looking for a good and big sportsclub in Heraklion. My first choice would be bodypump, but i'd also go for yoga. Just not aerobics. If you know anything, please let me know the address, I'll go check it out.

We are moving to Crete (Heraklion) at the end of this year, my second child will be born in the mid of Oct, first child is 2 years old. I've done a lot of searching, but still have many questions:
1) the place to live - we are coming from Estonia, where we have cold winters and a lot of snow. Is it common to have heating and warm running water in houses in Crete?
We think it would be better if we lived outside of the city - max 15 - 20 km. Can you recommend some nice places where I can go to the beach (not windy, not deep, sandy) by foot with kids, playground nearby and where is possible long-term renting.
2) we need some furniture - does any local furniture shops have websites?
3) do you, cretans, use internet banking, is it common to use credit- or debitcards in shops or do you use only cash? Which bank do you recommend? I have never in my life used any checkbook (and don't intend to).
4) Does the mothers of Crete stay home with kids for baby years or are kids put in kinderkarten and mothers go to work?
Can most of the people speak English? I do plan to start learning greek, but it takes time.
I guess I don't need there my skates and skis :)
