But, it is certainly well-equipped with excellent fitness equipment; it has very friendly staff, great fresh Thai and Western food available and a beautiful swimming pool with lots of space around it with sun beds for sun bathing under the tropical Thai sun.
Hua Hin Fittness
Hua Hin Fitness, located on Soi 94 is a great little fitness centre that packs a lot into a small space. Parking is easy and the centre is professional and very modern. Rates here are also excellent with 990 Baht for 1 month and 6,000 Baht for 1 year’s membership. Along with all the latest sports equipment, drinks and snacks, they also offer an infrared sauna, steam sauna, massage beds and an outdoor Jacuzzi so you can watch the world go by while getting your muscles massaged by the bouncing bubbles – just as long as you are not too shy at being half-naked on the street!
The new fitness centre on the top floor of the Market Village shopping centre called @letic Fitness is very well equipped. It offers a huge fitness centre with sea views and has an incredible amount of cardiovascular machines like treadmills, stationery bicycles and steppers. There is also a great choice of fixed resistance machines and free weights and a selection of machines that focus solely on lifting your own bodyweight.
In the Dome, which is also part of @letic Fitness, you can choose from Spinning, Step, Zumba, Abs, Yoga and Power classes. All these classes are free when you join and have qualified instructors to guide you. There is also an @letic Juice Bar, which offers coffees, teas, body building supplements and a fantastic choice of freshly-made smoothies, shakes and mixed juices along with a good selection of fresh fruits. Next to @letic Juice Bar are some massage beds so you can enjoy your healthy drink while receiving a great massage. Membership here is 16,000 Baht per year. This price is not the cheapest but – pound-for-pound – it is great value for money considering the amount of classes and facilities available; it comes recommended.
