Vung Tau is a sleepy beach town around 90km south east of Ho Chi Minh city. I regularly visit there, often by boat to get out of the hustle and bustle of the big city and chill by the beach for a few days.
Like most places in Vietnam Vung Tau is a slow burner-that is on first impression you may not like it, but dig a little deeper and it begins to grow on you. When i visit here i still stick to my workout routine, so i’ve spent a bit of time going around checking out the different gyms there.
Quite near the sea front on Trung Trac road is Xuan Hoa fitness centre.
I initially stumbled upon this place by accident after meeting a girl from Vietnam Cupid in the Coffee House coffee shop opposite.
It’s located at 2 Trung Trac Sreet (google maps link above) on the second floor of the building. It’s a really great and expansive gym with two large free weights areas and multiple machines.
There’s a kettle bell and stretching area and an area reserved for punch bags.
The gym was really quiet when i went there on a Tuesday morning apart from quite a few Vietnamese girls working out or running.
Pricing is really cheap at 30K (just over $1) per visit and monthly rates starting from 250k going down to 150k, a real bargain for a gym of this quality.
There’s even an area for ‘sexy dance’ upstairs which might be worth checking out…
If you’re looking for a quick workout whilst on holiday or a more serious gym as an expat living in Vung Tau, this gym comes highly recommended.
