This small town in North Eastern Thailand is not the easiest place to find a gym. To the best of my knowledge, at the time of writing, there is only one gym in Pai. The gym in Pai is far from brilliant, but is better than nothing.
There are various MMA fighting gyms if that is what you are looking for, but only the one standard weights/cardio gym.
The gym is at Fluid swimming pool.
It is very small, old and not particularly well equipped.
There are no heavy weights and no chin up bar; let alone squat racks or anything else. However there is:
- Dumbbells up to 10kg
- 1 set of plate load dumbbells (can make heavier weights with these)
- 1 barbell (10kg) & weights plates
- Bench press
- Dip station
- Couple of exercise machines
- Stationary bike
How to find the gym in Pai
The gym is at Fluid swimming pool, which is just outside of town toward Pai Canyon.
Fluid Swimming Pool
Address: 6, Moo 1,
Mae Hee, Pai
Mae Hong Son, 58130
Phone: 087 186 5320
It is only 60baht for all day entry to the swimming pool complex, which includes use of the gym.
My opinion of Fluid Swimming Pool gym in Pai
The gym is not great and you will be able to get an equivalent or better workout just doing bodyweight exercises and utilising the environment around you.
That said, the swimming pool is great and entry is extremely cheap, so if you are there anyway, there is no reason not to mix your workouts up and use some (light) weights.
There is also a cafe in the complex that serves western food, so you can get a decently substantial meal in after a workout.
