Recommended Posts

i know a very good GYM in chiang mai, only for serious bodybuilders but if i told you all it wouldn't be good anymore, too many people no good.

dam_n you....! :)

It's only for a week (and you can pm it me, won't tell anyone)

By the way I work out eraly in the morning 06 - 07 am, especially to avoid waiting in line (so I understand your frustration)

I might actually need a spotter (are you in....) :D

what do you try to achieve by going to the gym? no i dont want to hear weight loss...

bigger biceps, wider trapezoid? want to look bulk and look like a gorilla? like the feeling when hanging around in town/malls showing your figure?

will that be a problem when you get old? like clint eastwood looks really saggy now... muscle shrunk or something? also how about joint problems? i read somewhere, oldy rugby players get like joint, cartridge problems.

my place got that one machine that does 4-5 stuff. instead of doing painful situps, lifting,pulling 100kgs will also train ur core right?

also how do you burn fat on ur bum? i heard bum (gluteus maximus) got the strongest muscles in human body... yummmooooooooo....

so if u train ur bum, u will have big ass? not fat but all muscle???? lol, jean calude van damme got a big ass! WOW looks like a horses one... :D:D:D:D:D:):D:D

also... arnie swazneggar didnt do cardio training right? like running?

Hi guys.

I'll be heading to Chiang Mai in June, but would like to know the name of the gym I'll be using for that 1 week.

I'm into heavy weights, so heavy dumbbells and plenty of barbells + plates are the biggest priority.

Do Chiang Mai have a hardcore Bodybuilding gym?

Cheers

Dan

Try Hillside 4 condo.... I bench press 180KG and they have sufficient weights for me.... unfortunately the dumbells are only 40KG....

Cheers :)

I think Powerhouse is the best gym in town. They have quality equipment, not overcrowded, open early in the morning (6am) for the early birds, nice locker rooms and sauna, free wifi, very clean, and best overall feel to the club. Everyone has their opinion. That's mine.

700 YEAR stadium has 2 gyms, the better one is open from 3-8pm.

Only place with pneumatic equipment which allows you to adjust the load on each machine with your finger tips.

Membership 500 THB per year which includes usage of the Olympic sized pool,

plus 50 THB when the gym is actually used, 30 THB if 60 years.

Lots of sporty young Thais there. Good trainers, sports students.

I love it

there is a california wow here. Good gym. But so trendy is kind of ruins it. U can get various membership packages but they will completely try to "sell" the gym to you.

Once u get over the fact that they are sales people its ok, but u have to get past that first, and it is so ####### annoying.

A lot of people like California Wow with lots of good equipment and private TVs on many of the machines. In some of the other gyms that have one TV, if you want to watch something entertaining while working out, you often have to watch Thai TV or whatever was on before you got there.

I went and checked out California Wow and thought I would post my experience.

I met with a membership "counselor" who explained all the fees and such and tried to close me on a one-year membership. The best price I could get her to quote was B12K (CNX only) for one year and she told me I should sign up on the day because the price was increasing to B15K the following day :) I got her to give me a 7-day trial; I recommend anyone joining a gym to get a trial so you can check out the whole experience of the place.

The experience overall was negative for the following reasons:

1. Parking at Central is a PIA even on the best of days, so getting a parking place and then negotiating your way through the mall to the top floor takes some time, both coming and going.

2. General attitude of the staff is crap and I had a hard time getting my questions answered. I suppose once you get the place figured out, you wouldn't have many questions at a gym so this is a small issue.

3. The lockers are too small for a helmet to fit inside unless you use one of those useless pudding bowl style skull caps. This is a deal-breaker as I always ride a bike.

4. The locker room is big and clean but really uncomfortable and crowded. There are groups of dapper young chaps hanging around chatting and checking themselves and others out - if you know what I mean. I'm not a homophobe by any means, but in a gym, get changed, showered and get the fug out.

5. I asked for a towel and was told that if you want to use the gym's towel service you have to pay an additional B3K per year or supply your own towel(s) :D I've had many gym memberships and never been asked to supply my own towel.

On the plus side, they have lots of quality free weights and machines and cardio equipment. They also have rooms for aerobics, spinning and yoga if that's what you're into. Also, if you like hanging around the mall, I suppose that could be a plus.

I definitely will NOT be joining this particular gym.

Lucky you did not sign the contract with them then,went there just to check it out and turned the 7 days free trial offer down. Still receive irritating special offer from them by phone now and again. I was told by their present members that they were stupid to signed up life contract with FOS gym.

Two questions: 1) Could someone please say where is California Wow? 2) Where exactly is the gym on Nimenhaemin and what's it called?

Today I checked out 3 gyms in the Kad Suan Kaew area.

First was Fitness First, located on the 7th floor of a white high-rise just behind and north of Computer Plaza and Icon Plaza, from Kad Suan Keow diagonally north and east past the big intersection. They quoted as follows:

1 month 1200 B

3 month 3500 B

6 month 5500 B

1 year 7500 B

I was non-committal, and by the time I left, the 1-year price was dropped to 6500. I suspect it could go lower. It's a huge space, with a large room for classes, and some big windows with good views. I was there mid-day, and it wasn't crowded at all. I think I was told that if you pay for 1 month, your fee can be applied toward a longer membership later on. There was no pool.

Then I went to the C.M. Orchid Hotel, just west of Kad Suan Kaew Shoping Center on Huay Kaew. They have a small gym on the 4th floor, not the latest and greatest . The monthly fee is 1200 B. I think the annual fee might be 8000 but I'm not sure.

Finally I found the Kamee Powerhouse gym on the 3rd floor of Kad Suan Kaew. They had lots of good equipment packed into a small space. Even at 2 pm there were a fair amount of people. They have some classes.

The rate is 50 B for one day, 800 B for a month, 1300 for 2 months, 1700 for 3 months, 3000 for 6 months, and 5000 for one year. That's in print; I don't know if there's room to negotiate. There was no pool.

Hope this helps someone.

the price is good there but the gym kind sucks. First it costs to park there every day. Second out of 6 treadmills only 2 ever work. third they don't have enough weights, if you don't go at around lunch, it's too busy someone is always using the plates or dumbbells you need. There's always someone on the smith machine benching 20 kilos.....so don't think your every going to be able to do squats, cause they don't have a squat rack either.
