Location - Again, its pretty central, because as per, we tend to stay pretty central - about 10-15minutes walk from the main market as landmark. For us, it was about a 8 minute walk from the Home Stay Hostel we were at.
Price - 80,000 Dong - so a bit on the pricey side, it did make up for this in the equipment it had.
Equipment - One of the bigger, well kept gyms we’ve been two. They had air con but it wasn’t on too much which was nice. This bad boy, sat across two floors and was packed with cool machines and free weights, some of which we’d not seen in the UK. They had a awesome section just for hamstrings and glutes which we were very impressed with. They also have some hilarious body shaking machines that the Vietnamese seem to love. Not sure what they do, though I can assure you, they don’t burn calories. They run, an odd type of body pump class where you swing you arms around, lift your shoulders up and down and wobble your hips. Again, we weren’t exactly sure what this did other then maybe help with body functionality, but hey, better be in the gym doing something than sat infront of the telly with some Oreo’s wasting time. Oh, one thing, Vietnamese love awful, awful loud thumping techno/ chart remix music, that is so load it hurts your brain. Do NOT go here on a hangover.
Extras - Yup, like any good, clean, well maintained gym they’ve got a fridge stocked with water, milk, corn and energy drinks (but they’re twice the price of a shop, so bring your own). Plus, theres a wonderful lady out the front of the gym selling lovely healthy smoothies, like carrot, pineapple and watermelon to fuel up on some post workout, healthy micro nutrients and vitamins. Ask for one without sugar, to keep it extra healthy. If you’ve got it, pop a scoop of protein powder to get your post workout protein. Word of warning, do not mix chocolate and carrot. It doesn’t taste good.
Synopsis - Great gym, expensive but worth the money, it does get busy post 5pm so we’d advise not going at that time but you’ll get to see some funky dance moves and a lot of people shaking.
Extra tip, cross the road out of the gym, turn right and walk down the main road. About 200m down you’ll find a lady selling fruit out side of a small convinience store, just after the petrol station. We bought a kilo, yes a whole kilo of strawberries for 15,000 Dong - which is crazy as thats about $0.70!!!!
