Review: By the time that we made it to Đà Nẵng, the days of wandering around Hoi An in the rain were catching up with me. Sadly, I had developed a pretty nasty chest infection so I didn’t manage to train in this gym, but I did go and check it out for you all. You are welcome.

I can’t really tell you much about the atmosphere, or the staff, as I didn’t spend very long here, but it all seemed ok. The gym has air conditioning and wifi, as-well as changing rooms and lockers and the atmosphere seemed friendly and professional. There were lots of staff on duty, and several personal trainers wandering the gym floor.
Who is this gym for? This is a gym with a safe, clean and professional set up. It is located on the main road too, so the gym and setting seemed safe for lone female travellers. When I went, the gym was busy with a mix of locals and tourists and it felt suitable for all ability levels.
Tips: As well as personal training, this gym also offers yoga classes. You can contact the gym through the page above for details.
