After checked in the hotel at Nakhon Sawan, finally I came to the gym for weekend workout. I checked the gym in advance, its name is “Tiger’s fitness” located in the east side of city center.
Location of gym
Gym is located at Matulee road 13. There is small sign only can be seen from the road so you can also find cafe “take a break” that is in front of your destination Tiger’s fitness.
Official page of Tiger’s fitness for latest promotion and offer.
Whole 2-story building is for the gym. Many local people are coming to the gym by cars or motor cycles.
Entrance to the reception. Due to Covid restriction, gym is open from 9:00 to 21:00 only every day.
At the time I came to the gym, I had chance to talk to the owner a little bit. He said that gym is very new, just opened in last year 2020 but it was supposed to be closed for 7 months due to Nakhon Sawan’s governor’s order. Nakhon Sawan province was never categorized as dark red zone so gym can be opened but local government imposed stricter rule so gym remained closed.
As the government lifted Covid control gradually from Sep, 2021, the gym also reopened from Sep 10th.
Luckily the owner offered me free trial at the day while normally walk in day use costs 200 THB. To register free trial, you need to fill in the form with name and phone number.
At lounge area, you can buy the drinks for your gym workout.
1.5 litter water is 15 THB only.
1st floor: Free weight and bathroom
As mentioned, gym is 2 stories free weight area and bathroom is at the ground floor. In addition, you can find cardio, machines and group class room on the 2nd floor. I spent 7 hours at the day to complete whole body workout.
Free weight room is next to reception and lounge area. Inside the gym area is a bit too cool compared to the temperature outside but you will be used to it soon after the several minutes.
Power rack is the best fitness equipment, I really need this, if without gym I cannot do barbell squat so such gym will not be my choice. Safety bar is also available for the power rack so you can try weight as heavier as much and beat your limitation!
Barbell squat for 100 kg. Nowadays, I can do work out only once a day so my strength is getting weaker…
Smith machine. Many other members prefer smith machine but I prefer power rack hehe.
Dumbbells is until 50 kg from 30 kg, this is very good for my chest press and back row. lighter dumbbells are available at 2nd floor.
This machine is back row by adding plates on it. I love this machine, I can fix my upper body so as to focus more on the lower back. Hip thrust machine is also there.
Machines with plate for row, chest and rat training
Bench press stand but no safety bar. If you need it, let’s use power rack.
Straight and ez bars. Free belt increase abdominal pressure.
Follow the sign of macho couple after the free weight area to bath room.
