Brand new motorbikes for rent
Dec 2019 • Friends
Motorbikes were brand new and because of that a little bit more expensive, but worth the money. Everything worked perfectly. Owner is really nice and showed us some good places to visit.
Didn't went to the gym, but seemed clean.

Unsuitable for powerlifting/experienced athletes.
Oct 2019 • Solo
Disclaimer: I am a rugby player and semi-competitive powerlifter, i.e. in no way a professional athlete but a relatively advanced lifter, so if you are fine with a couple free weights, cardio equipment and machines ignore this review.

Owner is a lovely guy, very friendly and accommodating. The gym itself is spotless and incredibly well maintained. However, despite all the great reviews I read, this gym is unsuitable for any sort of competitive lifting and here’s why:

- There’s one squat rack with two generic stiff bars without knurling.
- The benches are incredibly narrow and short, I’m 6ft and 92kg and could barely have my head and bum on the bench at the same time.
- The amount of padding on the benches is also way too extreme. An incredibly squishy surface is not a stable platform to press from.
- Finally, although there is an incredibly wide variety, the machines are the most bizarrely manufactured things in the world. I trained with my sister who is 5’4” and it appeared that neither of us could fit comfortably in any of the machines or make them in any way work fluidly.

Regardless, we managed some form of a workout so thank you for that!

Love New Karon Gym
Aug 2019
I join this gym every time I visit Karon/Kata and absolutely love it. Great equipment, extremely clean, always cool and comfortable regardless how hot outside, wonderful staff and Andrew is a fantastic guy. Next time I'm in Karon/Kata, I will definitely be back to work out at New Karon gym.

Excellent gym @ Karon Beach. I visited New Karon Gym on my vacation in August. Very well equipped gym, clean and cold aircon. A lot of different machines and equipment.

Awesome pump
Jul 2019 • Business
Recently spent a week in Karon for business and took out a weekly pass at the gym at a reasonable cost. Got a great pump each day with an extensive range of high tech equipment. Staff were also friendly. I’ll definitely be back.

Very nice gym! Before to buy subscription to this gym passed through others in Karon. Yes, it is a bit more expensive than others, but it worth it. A lot of space and air, stuff, machine. Recommended!!

Great
Aug 2018 • Couples
I've been here for almost a year and decided to choose this gym because it's the only reasonable and professional gym in the area. Full of equipment, locker room, showers. There is also a boxing bag if You want to kick out some more energy. As I saw there are also some apartments in the building so you can overstay. The owner is great and the prize is regural for this part of Thailand. I suggest to try this gym if you are nearby.

Clean and well equipped.
Jul 2018 • Solo
The equipment was well maintained and the facilities were clean. It had all the necessary stuff to get a real workout in. It has two powerful aircon units, but I found the regular fans sufficient, and I was there in July. Also, the low season meant that it was never crowded. Good folks running it too. Very helpful and straightforward. Good location.

Check out the apartments too!
Apr 2018 • Friends
Gym has everything you need open from 9am-9pm and was never crowded in the two weeks I spent there. The owner Andrew and his wife were very friendly. You can also rent an apartment above the gym that is def the nicest place I stayed at in the 5 weeks I've been in Phuket. Check it out!
