I visited the original gym and it did not appeal....had googled it on the Internet and discovered that there was a new Maximum Fitness which is right on Patong Beach close to Bangla Road. It is more expensive but reasonable if you purchase a few weeks at a time. Nice new change rooms and lockers. There is plenty of equipment, however it is of very average quality...meaning a number of machines were broken or the cables and pulleys very rough. Weight plates on machines are not numbered. Air conditioned. Friendly staff. There are treadmills that overlook the beach which is nice. Need more weights up to 10kg and interestingly the 15kg dumbbell was in fact only 12kg so incorrectly labelled (my girlfriend thought she was strong that day haha) Been to a few gyms in Patong and this one is preferable.
