Place: drive through Mae Nam, which mainly smells like warm sewerage from the on the street drainage system, topped with hot petrol exhaust fumes from motorbikes and depending on where you are, warm raw meat and spicy smelling BBQs. I felt like I needed a shower before I even started. Luckily I brought DEET, mosquitos love me and there were... More

Outdoors so bring mosquito spray, great staff, good range of 'old -school' equipment. You can buy a pack of 10 visits which works out more affordable than paying individually for each visit. Also great muay Thai instructor who worked with the kids - highly recommend this place!

Not much to say, other than more equipment than most other gyms. Not new equipment, but does exactly what it says on the tin.

It needs up dating but hey at least it's a gym. We all need a bit of a work out in the morning. Could use a mechanic with an Allen key and a Mr fix it.

I didn't expect to find such a well equipped gym during my stay on the island and I was so pleasantly surprised. The fact that it is an outdoor gym makes it even lovelier. The staff is friendly, the floor gets cleaned multiple times a day (one day I saw it happen twice during the same workout). There is a... More
