After making its Southeast Asian debut at Erawan Bangkok in 2015, New York’s celeb-endorsed barre studio Physique 57 has now branched out to Thonglor.

For newbies, they’re offering a two-class package at B1,000 or an eight-class one at B6,000, to be used in one month. Regular drop-ins cost B1,000.
Asoke’s colorful beach-inspired workout studio specializes in indoor surf yoga—that’s yoga practiced on surfboard simulators to test your balance.

This Silom gym looks more like a sexy bar. With strip-lights, an exposed industrial ceiling and dark palette of gray on gray, lifting in Sam-Yan Gym feels like working out in a nightclub, while facilities—from free-weight stations to cardio machines—are just as advanced.

For that you also get access to classes like BodyPump (60 mins of moderate resistance barbell training), RPM (spinning) and boxing training.
The second branch of Bangkok's biggest CrossFit and fitness facility Training Ground sits near Rama 4 Road.
