Review: On the way to the Gili Islands, we decided to spend a few days in Senggigi. However, are no gyms in Senggigi. However, there are a number of gyms in nearby Mataram. So, I decided to take the scooter we had rented to go sightseeing and head over to check out Yuditya Gym.

Yuditya Gym is a modern gym, which has only been open for about a year. Yuditya is as close to a modern western standard gym as I have found in Lombok. The equipment is new and functional and the choice of equipment has clearly has had some thought behind it. The cardio equipment is modern and fully functional.

According to the staff that I spoke with the owner of the gym is an Indonesian guy who lives in the UK. The gym is staffed by a couple of friendly locals which physiques that wouldn’t be out of place in any gym in the UK.

This gyms has:

  • Dumbbells up to 30kg
  • Adjustable benches
  • Flat barbell bench
  • Incline barbell bench
  • Decline barbell bench
  • Smith machine x 2
  • Squat rack
  • Cables
  • Lat pull down
  • Easy bar
  • Preacher curl bench
  • Machine lat pulldown
  • Seated low row
  • T bar row machine
  • Leg press machine
  • Leg extension machine
  • Leg curl machine
  • Pull up bar / dips bar
  • Leg raise platform
  • Ab rotation platform
  • Treadmill
  • Static bike

As well as the modern gym equipment, the gym is air conditioned and even offers users a sweat towel. The gym also has changing rooms with showers which were clean and modern. The whole gym has clearly had a lot of time and effort spent in setting it up. I really enjoyed training here and getting to know some of the locals.

The gym also offers personal training, so if you fancy working with a trainer to make sure that you get the most out of your workout, or putting together a new workout, then speak to the staff at reception.

The gym also sells supplements. When I was here they were waiting for a delivery of protein, but they did have amino acid tablets for sale. These were 4 for 10,000 INR.

Who is this gym for? On both occasions that I trained here there were only locals guys in this gym. However, there were no signs to suggest that this was a male only gym. Whilst I did encounter some single sex gyms in Lombok, this didn’t strike me as one of them. Infact the gym even had a woman on its signage out front. The locals training here were friendly and the atmosphere felt professional and safe. As such, I would recommend this gym to anyone looking to train in the Mataram area. Although please note the information below.

Tips: The gym itself is located in a pretty isolated place so you will need to rent a scooter to get there. You should definitely take care on the roads, as the Indonesians can drive pretty recklessly. Have a good workout!
