I heard that there is a gym near Papa Falang's but I'm not sure exactly where.

That would probably be The Englishman's Retreat mentioned above by len ames as it is just down the road from there..

Gyms in Udon Thani

Post by KHONDAHM » January 22, 2014, 9:27 pm

Anyone know of experienced trainers who make house calls? I've got all the right equipment, but lack motivation and know-how.

When I was younger, motivation was easy: hot women. That was 9 glorious years married, two kids, and 10 kg ago, though.
Enjoy this site much more by adding idiots to your ignore list (Friends & Foes tab).

Grandlite Fitness, across the street from UD Town, have a flat bench in their catalog.They can order it. 4k baht. They also have incline and decline benches.

http://biggymcity.com/Workoutprices.html

1. Big City Gym (located south-east ring road, 50bt a day)
2. Physical Education College (west ring road)
3. UD Fitness (near Soi Sampan & Central, 50bt a day)
4. Army Hospital (Tahan Road)
5. One located between Romyen Village 3 & 4 (east ring road)
6. One behind Wattana Hospital, 60bt daily (not the one in Wattana Hosp.)
7. Wattana Hosp.
8. Southwest corner of Nong Prajak park/lake.
*Some of the bigger hotels also have fitness centers.

The phys Ed college has it all, running track, swimming pool & fitness center, a good value, but I also hear it's a bit of a social club, friend of mine quit going for that reason.

Jogging tracks are popular Nong Prajak park/lake with a 3k track, Nong Boa park/lake is 2k and Nong Sim park/lake is less than 2k.
Advice please on number (5) Of the above list, between Romyen 3 & 4. I can't find it on any map.
Or indeed any other fitness gym within an easy bike ride of there. Otherwise it looks like a trip into town for my daily old guy type shuffle around the gym. By the time I've done that the motivation may have evaporated in the heat.

It's been a while since I've been in that area and no idea if the gym still exist. It is/was set up in a converted house and located on small soi's between Romyen 4 & 3 (see map).

Another gym not listed in the above list is at the UD Sports Stadium:

http://www.udonmap.com/udonthaniforum/u ... 19322.html

Last time I checked the fee was 30bt a day and opens about noon until 21:00

...and further down the road from Romyen past Big C off the ring road are the Siam Grand hotel and Sittrom housing, both open to the public.

That gym near Rom Yen is now gone and the building has been remodeled for a residence.
Colossians 2:8-10...See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, which are based on human tradition and the spiritual forces of the world rather than on Christ. For in HIM dwells all the fullness of the GODHEAD bodily; and you are complete in HIM, who is the head of all principality and power.

Thanks for the update SFG.

For anyone interested:

There's another gym located on Soi Jintakharn. Mostly free weights/machines, very little aerobic equipment from what could see street side. Have only seen in passing and have no other details.

If you try and drive along this Soi in the school run periods, morning and afternoon, and in the evening you will be pumping iron way beyond your expectations through the anger and traffic madness.

After looking around I joined Your Fitness in UD Town. Top floor in The Next block. German owned, clean, well run and friendly staff. I only use the fitness equipment and it's good. Also a weights gym for the body builders.
Most important, only B800 month for over 55's. Small One off joining fee of B250. Highly recommended.
Life Fitness is a leading international chain, very expensive and too close to all the eating temptations for me. I've not been in but I suspect it's more of a lifestyle thing for the well off.
