Best Gym’s in Chiang Mai – 2023

Living as an expat in Chiang Mai brings a world of excitement and new experiences. One important aspect that should not be overlooked is staying fit.

Engaging in regular exercise not only keeps you physically healthy but also allows you to fully immerse yourself in the local scene, connect with the community, and make the most of this incredible City.

Chiang Mai Gyms

When it comes to staying fit in Thailand, joining a gym is undeniably one of the best ways to achieve your fitness goals. While the country offers a plethora of outdoor activities and opportunities for physical exercise, a gym provides a host of unique advantages that can greatly contribute to your overall fitness enjoyment.


Firstly, a gym offers a temperature-controlled and weather-proof environment that allows you to exercise regardless of the weather or time of day. Chiang Mai’s tropical climate can be hot and humid, making outdoor workouts uncomfortable at best or potentially even unsafe such as during the burning season with poor pollution.


Secondly, gyms in Chiang Mai are equipped with a wide array of fitness machines, weights, and exercise equipment. Whether you’re into cardio exercises, weightlifting, or group fitness classes, you’ll find a range of options to cater to your specific preferences and goals. Having access to professional trainers and instructors can be especially valuable for expats seeking guidance, personalized workout plans, and proper form to maximize their fitness efforts.


Additionally, joining a gym in Thailand provides an opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who share a passion for health and fitness. Engaging with fellow gym-goers can lead to new friendships, training partners, and a supportive community that motivates and inspires you in your expat life.


Chiang Mai offers expats an abundance of gym options. Some provide additional features such as swimming pools, saunas, specialised classes and personal training services that may appeal to you and influence your selection.

Chiang Mai Gym. How to decide?

How to find your perfect gym in Chiang Mai?


First things first, location is key. You don’t wanna be trekking across town (especially during rush hour) just to get a workout in. Find one that’s close to home or work so that you can get into a regular routine without easy excuses to skip out.

Specific requirement

Is there a specific exercise class, piece of equipment, or feature that’s critical for you such as personal training? If so make sure you look for this as you review your options. For some a swimming pool is essential, for others it’s a nice luxury that you might not want to be paying for if you don’t use it.

Some will like the rawness that a no-frills free-weight gym might provide. Others want to feel pampered with cool looking gear, beautiful views as they jog on their treadmill, and a nice relaxing sauna and shower area after their workout. There’s no right or wrong, just what’s right for you. So get clear on what you’re looking for, or you won’t know when you’ve found it.


Lockers and storage is an important feature that all gyms should provide, but it’s worth doing a double check on. Some are busted beyond usability.


Do you have a limited budget? Do you prefer to pay-as-you-go, or like the extra commitment that a monthly or yearly subscription might provide. Bottom line: Find a gym that vibes with you, meets your needs, and gets you pumped to crush those fitness goals! You got this! 💪
