If you are serious about your fitness, Phuket is a great place to train. Not only does it provide a beautiful, peaceful backdrop with gorgeous beaches to relax on between workout sessions but, as you will see from this list, there is also a choice of world-class centres to choose from. Each of the best fitness clubs in Phuket has state-of-the-art equipment, trained and experienced instructors and a comfortable, motivating environment.
If you’re not looking to spend your entire trip to Phuket on tropical weather conditioning and intensive fitness training, most of these gyms in Phuket have one-day passes available, giving you access to the full range of facilities without having to become a full member. While most hotels have fitness rooms these days, most don’t match up to these places.
