True Fitness Asoke - a collection of broken equipment...

22 posts in this topic

I wouldn't take a long term contract at TRUE fitness since last year they have already closed without notice their club at Central World.

 

I don't understand their business model; a lot of cardios are out of order, it seems that they try to extract all the lemon juice.

 

Don't know if it's correct but a friend mine told me; that the real estate owners, with time, tends to increase rents up to a point the activity is not profitable for the fitness company (I've heart similar story about a popular restaurant where the owner wants to capture most if not all of the profit of the activity by increasing rents)

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned http://thesaspireclub.com , which is adjacent to Asoke BTS Station - basically across the street from True Fitness.

 

There is also  http://wefitnesssociety.com which is a good distance from Asoke, but is accessible right off the Ekkamai BTS Station skywalk, making it pretty convenient.

 

 

Aspire is too expensive, it's mostly for crossfit, only a small section of free weights, there are better gyms in the area for that price

What do you really need in a gym anyway?   You guys Mr. America or Arnold? Many of you are taking the rip off gym route.

The Ambassador yes has older machines.  But the free weight area is just fine.  Cardio, pool, sauna, jacuzzi locker room, showers, towels included. 9500 b a year.

Up to you!

Rumours are that True Fitness is about to go bust and file for bankruptcy. Hope you didn't prepay for your membership!

Yah someone will be along shortly to tell us that "real men" don't use machines or air conditioning and that all your really need to do to stay in shape is to do press ups with a bag of boulders on your back.
