Is this the first floor in the British sense (first floor above the ground floor), or in the American sense (the ground floor)?

It's the ground floor.

Why not "It's a..."?

Sorry for not remembering this.

"It's a gym" would be a good answer to "What is that?" But when adding "on the first floor" it becomes a strange thing, I can't really properly explain it.

"Where is the health club?/Where can I find a training centre?" "There is a gym on the first floor".
