Here is our 2020 list of the Best Gyms in Bangkok
If you’re looking for a gym that has almost unlimited options, look no further than V38 Fitness. They have gone the extra mile in tailoring their membership plans in a way that will suit every digital nomad perfectly. Sign up for one class, one day, one week, a month–all the way up to a year. Family memberships are also available, and you can even book one of their luxury studios, which include a Thai-style breakfast, unlimited use of facilities and classes, private sessions with trainers, daily fitness programs and even transportation service to and from the airport.
Classes are small, limited to 6 in most cases, so you will get personal fitness advice and attention. You can find a workout for any taste and fitness level, from yoga to HIIT (high intensity interval training). Like sports? V38 offers boxing, PADI scuba diving, functional Muay Thai and altitude spinning. Or choose a class focused on your core, using your body weight for strength training or a boot camp designed to whip you into shape quickly.
V38 also offers a weight and resistance room, swimming pool and sauna, a studio for TRX and circuit training that includes a boxing bag, and another studio with standard fitness equipment. The altitude training room allows athletes of all levels to improve fitness by increasing cardiovascular function in a high-altitude simulation, as the oxygen-carrying capabilities of the blood are increased in higher altitudes.
As you can see, V38 Fitness offers something for everyone.

Personal trainers are proven to get faster results, both because of their knowledge and because of the accountability you have with one.

For the digital nomad, budgeting is vital. You have the freedom to work anywhere in the world, but there is so much to see and do. You like to balance your work life with recreation, while still fitting exercise and health into your lifestyle. Fortunately, Fitness 7’s mission is to encourage fitness and physical activity with quality equipment, and affordability for their customers is a top concern. They offer flexible memberships, including day passes, yearly memberships and shorter terms of one, three or six months.
Classes are free with your membership. The gym is divided into air conditioned and “hot zones,” to aid with training by increasing flexibility, detoxifying and destressing by sweating a lot, and may aid with cardiovascular strength by increasing your heart rate during exercise. Fitness 7 also provides trainers on the floor at no cost, so you may ask their advice at any time. You’re welcome to bring your trainer with you as well, something not every gym allows.
Fitness 7 has plenty of equipment to choose from, including jump ropes, boxing gear and a boxing ring, kettlebells, rollers, mats, weighted balls, free weights and of course, weight and cardio machines.
