Here are the best gyms in Bangkok and the deals you get.
Bangkok’s fitness scene has taken off in recent years. Gone are the days of pulling yourself into a crowded gym and fumbling your way through workout routines you memorized from some website online. With all the HIIT gyms, functional strength classes, yoga studios, Muay Thai boxing gyms and cycling sessions out there, the options can feel a little overwhelming to newcomers or people looking to switch up their routine.
But technology is catching up to simplify that process. Bangkok-based start-up FitTripper, a gym-booking app that offers discounts on short-term and long-term gym passes, is the latest on the scene and offers a unique way to test out different fitness gyms without long-term commitments. The company only launched in March of last year, but has already amassed over 250 partner gyms across eight countries with over 50 here in Bangkok. Here’s a list of some of the best gyms in Bangkok on their roster and the deals you get.
