Why Train With Us
I’ll make this simple, you train with Chalong Gym because you want an affordable no bull@#$% gym to workout in for your stay in Phuket. Chalong Gym is a family run and operated business, all the equipment, one location and a truly friendly environment promoting health and fitness.
Sometimes Chalong Gym gets refereed to as ‘the small guy gym’, which we don’t mind, because this moniker highlights that no matter your size or level of experience you’re always welcome and always going to enjoy your work outs here with us, and just to be clear we have lot’s of big guys training here, we are just completely short on A-holes.
Training & Gym Rules
RULES! Lets keep it simple we are here to train
Wear shoes, don’t wear shoes, up to you. Some trainers are great for certain sports some suck. If you don’t have proper lifting shoes you are much better off training barefoot then lifting with running shoes.
Dress code, I don’t care what you wear it’s not a nightclub or a fashion show for that matter. If you want to train with your shirt off do so (please keep your shorts on) just remember to spray and wipe down benches when your done.
Spray and wipe down machines benches and weights when your finished
Please tidy up after yourself. I’m not anal about this but don’t leave weight plates lying all around the floor and do put dumbbells back on the rack. It’s just common courtesy.
Show your member card or punch card when you come in. I can’t keep track of everybody’s membership in my head.
Grunt, fart, swear (politely) make loud noises but do show respect to other people. No bullying, intimidation or hassling other people to move so you can use some equipment
You can bring drinks from outside, you can even use my fridge to keep them in but don’t eat in the gym
Thats about it. I want you to enjoy training the way you like to train.
