Nice cardio room with a decent variety of machines and a rowing machine which I really like and isn't always come across in gyms. The con for me is I don't care for the style of elliptical machine they have, the motion for the arms doesn't fit my frame well. But as I said plenty of variety for cardio equipment, maybe I will give the assault bike a try.

The weight room, has a large variety of plate loaded machines, Not my particular training modality but seemed well equipped, my only complaint here is that all of the cable machines, none of them had adjustable height for the pulley so doing any mid level work is out. You either pull from the top or from the bottom. Maybe in the future they could upgrade one of the machines.

They have a bench press, a decline bench press, a squat rack, and a dead lift platform. This is what I like to do but it is clear they are not set up for power lifters. But you will be able to make it work. Not a fan of the style of squat rack as it is angled and has pegs, it would be much nicer to have a squared rack that you can adjust the J cups on. The dead lift platform is fine, but the weights are all iron plates. A few bumper plates would be awesome if dedicated just for this area. Also setting up 4 square racks with adjustable benches would allow for 4 areas to take the same space but me multi use. Perhaps another improvement for the gym down the road. That way if 2 people wanted to bench press, or squat at the same time it could be facilitated.

Oh one other thing that they may or may not have, I didn't see it but resistance bands would be helpful to have on hand. Perhaps they have them in a part of the gym I didn't see.

I know I am a bit more of a niche user, for the average person just looking to get a bit more fit they have plenty to keep you busy.

Hi Matt T, Thanks for the review and comments, we always appreciate constructive feedback. We do have 2 squat racks, the big silver one is straight with J hooks. There are Resistance Bands at the gym, however, people tend to leave them laying around the place. The adjustable cable-crossover and bumper plates are on our shopping list for our next upgrade. Thanks, Richie

This gym has great weight and cardio rooms. I come to the gym for the Muay Thai fitness class. This is a family run business and the owners are very friendly. The Muay Thai fitness class is great for those that want intense cardio exercise. It is not intended for professionals. The instructors are professional Muay Thai athletes. They also have yoga classes with many people attending.

Castra Gym's great if you like your full range of weight training and a separate open room for cardio. The space is well kept and it's never overcrowded, which is great given the location. The staff are responsive and useful, and loved the choice of protein shakes.

And of course, the hardcore training and muay thai classes are epic. Never thought I could kick, God, and do it so vigorously for an hour.

Moved into the neighborhood so went by and paid for a workout. The air conditioning, such as it was, was set at a high temperature. The programs on the treadmills were limited and largely incomprehensible. There was a good array of free weights but the variety of weight machines was very limited. The locker room is somewhat basic but clean. It does have small lockers to which you could afix a lock.

Hi nkped, Thanks for the review, we are always keen to hear people’s comments and views. With regards to the AC; in the cardio room, we can turn the temperature up or down for you. Most of our Thai members do not like the cold so sometimes we are asked to change the settings. Regarding the treadmill programs; the programs are pretty much generic on all treadmills but if there is some specific training program/setting that you use, please do let us know so that we can take it into consideration for the future. We have over 30 pieces of equipment and multi-stations, we also regularly bring in new equipment. If you could tell me what specific machine it is that you were looking for we can put it on our shopping list. For the locker room, we have fully equipped showers, toilets and changing rooms. We don’t really have any room to spare but if you let me know what you need, maybe we can accommodate (info@thecastra.com). Thanks, Richard
