Nothing missing

A basic but fully equipped gym, nothing missing for me to have a good work out with weights. The owner is friendly and always happy to assist.

I chose to go to Don's gym during my four months stay in Kata. Went there almost everyday for the last 3 months. Trainer is friendly and helpful, always suggesting the right exercises I should do (I'm a total novice). It helped me lose even more weight and get in better shape than I've been in all my life.

Good gym, it has all you need and it's very affordable. 1200 baht per month. The guy that works there is hillarious and talkative! Gotta get to know him!

Paid 200 baht for 1 day pass. Not the cleanest or most modern gym but it gets the job done. Has all the basics - few cardio machines, dumbbells (up to 20kg I believe), squat rack, military press, bench press, and some machines. They also have a small shower/bathroom. No lockers though. The Thai owner Don who oversees the gym... More

Went there 2 times during our 4 day visit to Kata. A pleasurable experience, a good basic gym with pretty much all the essential equipment in my opinion (especially if you prefer so called "old school" gym experience as I do). Went there both times during early afternoon hours, just a few other trainers there at that time. AC worked... More
