Everyone has their own ideas of what makes a good gym but...

 

We've covered Tony's gym in many previous threads over the years. Go back and revise them for the many reasons why Tony's gym was not the best place to train. The complaints came at a time when there were few alternatives available and Tony had a monopoly on the gym market. Now there are many, so people are less likely to complain and more likely to walk, but probably most have already left.

 

 

 

 

i was already scare to die of HIV at Tobygyms, so now no chance to visit any even if they reopen FOR FREE.

Never seen so dirty gym in my whole life.

I think you need to research how HIV is contracted.  You can not get it from the sweat of an infected person, yes, these gyms are dirty and run down.

I don't really understand all these negative critics on Tony's Gym. I use facilities on 3rd Road and have no real reason to complain on what is available. Even if a few machines may take time to be repaired, there are many other to work with.

Even less reasons to complain when I think about the price: I paid 15'000 B in 2008 for a LifeTime membership. Makes about 100 B per month (yes, ONE HUNDRED baht per month only)

 

And about the OP, just another negative rumour. Facilities are closed because of Covid-19 and will reopen once the problem is solved or contained. (as said on FB and on post above)

I used to like them but haven't been for a year or more. There was a farung guy who worked for him then and I guess his job was to look after the equipment. He used to come and inspect the broken stuff and then leave. Never fixed anything. The girl who used to work at the Sukhumvit one used to buy her own oil for the machines because she would report them as needing oiled and nothing ever happened. She became sick of everyone complaining so she fixed them herself. Then she left and they just all broke. Was sad and very frustrating that no one cared. They opened this beautiful new gym with new equipment and it just all broke because I one maintained it. I went past Sukhumvit in a songtaew today. I only saw quickly but it looked like all the equipment was gone.

Generally Thais don't maintain ANYTHING.

I was there every day.  Can't remember but pretty sure he did. He kind of stood out a farung working there. Was there several times checking machines.

Obviously not in management, otherwise, he would have arranged to get the equipment fixed, and kept it maintained.  Probably just volunteering some time.

i took out a life time membership - but soon found out the "lifetime" meant the lifetime of the gym (which closed not long after i paid), rather than my lifetime .....

 

you live and learn ....

I went to One Fitness in Rong Po today. A bit out of town on Naklua side past the motorway but really good value. Just opened,full gym(though part closed now), swimming pool with spa, group fitness classes(not open now),everything clean, smiling faces in uniforms.. 1350baht per month and cheaper for long term.

Past the motorway, or past the Hwy 36 junction? Rong Po is, if I am correct, on Sukhumvit, North of Pattaya, at the first lights after the Hwy 36 junction (heading towards Laem Chabang).

I don't drive so I'd say it is the Highway 36 junction. My Thai family just call it the motorway as is the only close one. Yes at the lights do a U turn and it is on the road at the end of the market with the little police station. About 400 metres up before the railway line.
