If you are in Patong and you want to exercise in a plusher environment then you could try Tailife Health and Fitness. This is a much more pleasant environment with a nice view over the pool. To be honest, the exercise machines are not fantastic but still an improvement on Patong Gym. This gym is aimed more at fitness fans rather than 'hard-core' iron pumpers.

The cardio machines are from Life Fitness. The three running machines are good. The bikes, steppers and striders all feel a little light-weight and somehow unsatisfying. There is a Concept 2 rower but again it does not seem to feel quite smooth and firm enough.

The weight machines are from Cybex and are good quality equipment, although not really top quality. There is a free weights section but you must put the weights down gently as the massage room is directly below.

The gym has air-con, is clean and has good changing facilities. There is also a nice pool so for an extra fee you can have a swim and relax on a sun-lounger after your workout.

The Yorkshire Inn manages the gym so if you are a guest at this hotel you also get to use the facilities.
