Best Gym In Chiang Mai

Recommended Posts

Do you guys konw of any place that sells good food supplements in Chaing Mai. Is it possible to buy good protein shakes, creatine, vitamins (eas, twinlab etc.) anywhere??

Also a good natural testesterone booster called Long Jack-Tongkat Ali grows naturaly in Thailand.. so I wonder where I could buy that?

The GNC here is not the best as it has a limited selection and is kinda pricy. If you can bring your supplements with you or order them once you get here it would be cost effective.

I agree that the GNC here is not up to much, but it is not really their fault.

The Thai FDA won't approve new health products without mucho tea money, so they are very limited and very expensive.

If Tongkat Ali is the herb that I think it is, it is available in most drug stores. If not, there is something simular that is very well known here for taking care of one's willy! :o

Platinum are now offering yearly memberships for around 8K baht and 3-year memberships for 20K baht (a great bargain).

Bump bump.

After months of doing sod all but a bit of running on my condos free gym area, I am missing my old state-of-the-art gym in London. My fitness level has gone out the window and im getting lazy.

California gym looks pretty good from their site, would you say this or Powerhouse is best.

I gen use cardio and weights but often like to take part in classes just to break the monotony. Like any yoga based class, based on martial arts, or dance. Not into aerobics or step stuff.

Any recommendations which is best or any new recommendations, esp those that have a good mix of male and female clients (or at least female friendly).

Also, would be great if you can post the membership costs and promotions if you know them. (I may move away from CM at some point, so prefer if i can go with a monthly membership)

Cheers guys! :o

There used to be a guy around that we called Doctor Boner. He promoted a Thai herb that is quite easy to find in many drug stores - I bought some in the shop with vitamins and such next to Boots on the second floor of Kad Suan Keaw. I couldn't member the name so I pointed to my willy and told her I was looking for an herb that made it healthy. She knew which one right away and when I checked her bottle compared to Doctor Boners, it had the same name. :D

Yeah. I would start at Powerhouse if it wasn't so expensive.

I'm not into cardio and am only looking for a good selection of weights (and where the patronage is less than 90% gay - unlike Orchid Hotel gym).

Any suggestions on a not so expensive (doesn't need air con) gym that has a good selection of weights?

CM Orchid charges 1500/mo. Large pool, small somewhat tatty gym, but it has all the equipment (stairstepper, recumbent bike, treadmill, weight machines, free weights, etc.). Some Thai and farang women are clients. On Huay Kaew Rd. next to Central Kad Suan Kaew. They have trainers who do yoga classes, and I have seen trainers with Muay Thai boxers doing workout routines occasionally. Seems like a fairly female-friendly place...

B1200 per month, B8,000 per year.

. . . and I would like to clarify that I have no clue as to the working order of UG's tackle I merely felt that the man must have some fairly serious balls to go up to the female assistant in Boots gesturing to aforementioned willy and conducting a conversation about Dr Boner!

I go to Fitness Thailand, which is on the 7th & 8th floor of the car park building behind Icon Square.

They have a variety of classes - step, aerobics, Body Pump, Body Combat, yoga, fitball etc., a well-equipped gym, and a spinning studio. They have huge changing rooms and are in the process of installing steam rooms and saunas. They will also be opening a spa treatment room too.

I paid 8,000 baht for a year's peak membership but I'm sure that they could quote you a price on a monthly basis.

I visited California Wow recently after they bombarded me with sales calls and hated it on sight. Too much pumping loud music and seriously hard-sell tactics. I prefer the sabai sabai approach of Fitness Thailand.

Can i just ask, does anyone know roughly the going rate for powerhouse? (As some of you mention its quite expensive). Would like to compare costs. Otherwise ill just pop in (but once you get in these places they do tend to latch on to you!)
