Review: If you are reading this you are probably looking for a gym in Gili Meno. Well, I have some good news and some bad news about gyms in Gili Meno. The bad news is that there is no public gym in Gili Meno. The good news about the gyms in Gili Meno is that there is something to help stop you losing all your gains.

At this point you may be wondering why this opening paragraph reads so awkwardly and includes the words “Gym in Gili Meno” over and over again. We both know its to boost SEO. You know it and I know it. If you are reading this it probably worked, so lets all just move on with our lives. If you are not reading this, then I really don’t need to address you.

So, what is this other option? Well, having walked around the Island, I have round a pull-up bar, and a set of parallel bars outside the Kontiki bungalows on the south east corner of the island, next to the white sand beach. Its not much, but its enough to get a decent bodyweight workout if you can get creative. Here are a few ideas to get you going which should cover most of your upper body and stop you leaving the island looking like someone who just got out of 6 months in a full body cast:

  • Wide grip pull ups
  • Pronated grip pull ups
  • Underarm pull ups
  • Dips
  • Leg raises
  • Muscle ups
At the moment I am trying to find time to do 50 pull ups a day, as well as 100 dips on the bars. As well as this, I am trying to mix in a little resistance band work to help train shoulders, as well as forcing my girlfriend to let me squat her in order to keep my legs in check. Keep an eye out for a new resistance band workout coming soon (with pictures I embarrassingly had to take on a public beach).


Who is this gym for? Everyone, I guess. Well, for those who don’t mind working out in public. And those who can do bodyweight exercises. And can workout in the heat. Hmmm, ok maybe its only for gym addicts with borderline issues.

Tips: There is nowhere to buy supplements on Gili Meno, so make sure you stock up before you hit the island.
