Review: Having spent a few days training at training at Club Olympic Gym, I began to hear hushed whispers about a secret gym based in the old Olympic stadium across the road. Walking home one night I saw a glimpse of this gym peaking out from behind iron bars across the road.
My interest peaked, I decided to check it out the next day. The old Olympic stadium could not be more different from the brand new Olympic gym on the other side of the road. The stadium itself is almost derelict, with flaking yellow paint on the outer walls and moss covered stands soaked by a thousand Vietnamese rain showers. You can walk in and see the football field and running track for yourself. Its a very strange place.

Tips: To get to this gym you have to use the ground floor entrance to the stadium on the far right. The gym is literally on the other side of the road to the Club Olympic Gym. Also, if you are in the area you should definitely go check out the stadium. Its kinda creepy to wander around. Go check it out and thank me later. It looks like this:
