Luang Prabang has only one reasonably priced gym, to the best of my knowledge. Fortunately, it is a pretty good gym, if you overlook the obvious age and dirtiness associated with most things in this part of the world. Many of the nice hotels have gyms and fitness facilities, but are extremely expensive and not worth the bother.
The gym in Luang Prabang is equipped with:
- Squat racks
- Bench press
- Smith machine
- Leg press
- Incline bench press
- Pull up/dip station
How to find the gym in Luang Prabang
The gym is on Manomai Road, next to the Xangkham hotel. The hotel address is:
Mano Mai Rd.,
Luang Prabang, Laos
At the time of writing the price for a one-off workout is 15,000kip.
They also offer weekly, monthly and 3/6/12 month memberships, if you are in town for the long term.
My opinion of the gym in Luang Prabang
This is a good gym. It has all of the equipment that you need for a good workout, there is rarely ever anybody else there and I really like training in the open air. The obvious downside to this is the lack of air conditioning, and depending on time of year, it might be extremely hot. The heat is the only reason I could think for a serious trainee to seek out a hotel gym instead of training here.
If you are looking for a gym in Luang Prabang I would definitely recommend this one over paying 5+ times as much for a hotel gym that, while better presented, is not half as well equipped.
