Welcome back to “fitravelife.com”! I came to Jetts Fitness – Asok branch this time so I will introduce their service and equipment to offer. Asok branch is located in the very heart of Bangkok metropolitan area along BTS Asok station.
In this post, I will also introduce general information about Jetts Fitness as self-proclaimed unofficial ambassador of Jetts so that readers can have some ideas to consider before joining the club.
What is the Jetts Fitness
Jetts Fitness is global fitness gym brand, originated in Australia in 2007 and now its operation expended to Thailand, United Kingdom, Netherlands, New Zealand. Gym is normally 24/7 operation and you can access to more than 270 out of all clubs* in these countries via your membership card. In Thailand, there are more than 35 branches in all over Thailand and they announced that Jetts is No. 1 fitness club in terms of number of branches in Thailand. As a member of Jetts Fitness and self proclaimed unofficial ambassador, I plan to visit all branches in Thailand and review each gyms to introduce to readers here.
*There are some exception, for example, in Thailand, There are 2 types of Jetts Fitness, Jetts red and Jetts Black. Jetts red member can access all clubs except Jetts black while Jetts black member can use all including Jetts red. As of Oct, 2021, Jetts black branch has 2 places only in Bangkok while Jetts red is located not only Bangkok but also in Nonthaburi, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Nakhon Ratchasima, Phetchaburi and Hua Hin
Contract of membership
You can choose monthly contract or annual contract. Basically monthly payment is 1,600THB, while 1,900THB for Jetts Black branches. When joining the club there is also another charge below but you can negotiate to erase these charge from your contract
I joined the gym 2 years ago with one year membership. I paid 16,800THB only for 1 year plus additional free month. Access fee and joining fee was waived. After completing one year contract successfully, I renewed my membership again to another one year. This time, I paid same amount but I got free additional 2 months on top of one year contract.
Jetts Fitness is emerging fitness club in Thailand expanding their network not only in Bangkok but also in other provinces. Newly opened club offers generous promo so I recommend readers to join new club as much as possible and use nearest branches for your convenience.
When Jetts Fitness Unilever branch opens at Rama 9 area, they had bonus free 5 months contract for one year membership. At the time, my memberships expires soon so I wanted to get this offer but it turned out the I cannot since I have already membership in other branch.
There are also plenty of personal trainers in the gym, both male and female. Based on your fitness goal, gym can assign trainers with suitable fitness background so you can contact your branch staff if you wish to find one. I made a contract of 27 sessions for 21,600THB. 800THB per session for an hour with a trainer who has experience to make body for physique contest before, that is the skills and career which I needed for my trainer to lead me to join the fitness competition in near future.
Currently as of October, 2021, contest event cannot be freely held due to Covid-19 control situation. Once schedule is fixed, I will go on a diet to join the competition first ever in my life.
Monthly fee is 1,600THB only. Negotiate to remove other fees from your contract!
Facility and equipment in gym
Gym facility is very simple mostly targeted for general gym goers for beginner and intermediate level so if you prefer hardcore style gym or luxurious gym, Jetts might not be your option for work-out.
For example, Jetts Fitness, each branch has only one machine per unit except cardio machines. Even power rack and smith machines are one each so you might wait for your turn when crowded. Dumbbell weight also not enough, Jetts Fitness has only until 35 kg at maximum. To lift more weight, you better try another one such as muscle factory in Onnut which is the super hardcore gym in Bangkok where many bodybuilders gather from all over the world. I plan to revisit again so I will make post for muscle factory.
As I mentioned, Jetts is neither luxurious gym unlike Fitness First for example in Thailand. Jetts is not offering free towel, sports wear, and teas in clubs. Moreover, there is no facility of sauna and pools. In case you would like to have these supplement service in gym, you have to pay more for Fitness First or Virgin active gym which is of course more costly than Jetts.
Gym is mainly crowded from 5pm to 7pm weekday after the office hour period. Every branch is full packed during such time and many of them joins group class such as yoga, les mills, body combat, body pumps etc. Their official Facebook pages post group class time table regularly per each branch so if you like to join the class, you can check on FB page or contact each branch for class offer.
As a sample of gym facility, I will show you the interior of Jetts Fitness – Asok branch in this post.
