Phra Khanong’s personal training studio comes from the Swedish trainer Henrik Olofsson who won Fittest Man in Thailand three years in a row from 2014-16. At his new Haus No. 3 fitness studio, you get tailor-made training programs in a gym that looks like an Ekkamai coffee shop, all white-washed walls, soft wood accents and dangling bulbs amid the green and shady Naiipa Complex. Sessions don’t come cheap. A consultation (B1,800) is required prior to the private training, which costs from B2,190-2,950 per visit. Or you can get semi-private training for B1,390-1,950.
A gym that specializes in boot camps, personal training and small group sessions, Max Fit has just relocated from Sukhumvit Soi 26 to Soi 39. You won’t find any exercise machines at this home-like studio, whose functional training routines make use of truck tires, sledge hammers, battle ropes and more to get you in fighting shape. Call ahead for a free consultation with their trainers, who received their qualifications from ACPE Academy back home. It’s B1,500 an hour per private session, while group classes run for B500.
