Staying fit on Koh Lanta is a tall ask considering that the tempting local cuisine makes a low-calorie lifestyle nearly impossible. When you’re relaxing by the beach, or hopping from bar to bar, Koh Lanta always has a reason to celebrate and indulge in food and drinks.
Naturally, going to the gym is the best way to stay fit and healthy, rejuvenate your body, and enhance your metabolism.
There are plenty of fantastic gyms in Koh Lanta; the trick is knowing where to search because not every gym will meet your expectations.
We don’t want you to spend the next several hours scrolling through the web trying to find the right gym.
Instead, if you're a traveler seeking a nice place to work out during your stay, here's a list of the top 7 gyms in Koh Lanta for a one-time workout with a day pass.
Another gym we highly recommend in Koh Lanta is WM Fitness. We love that they have a wide selection of CV equipment, an abundance of resistance machines and free weights.
They also have a fun rigging area well equipped with battle ropes, sandbags, kettlebells, a landmine rig, and much more!
If you like a mix up of different kinds of workouts through the week this would be the place for you.
All in all, you can ensure yourself a fantastic experience at a very reasonable price of 80 baht for a day pass or 200 baht for a week pass. If you are staying on the island for a longer while you may want to look into getting yourself a monthly or annual membership at the gym.
Another perk you have as a gym member is that you have complimentary access to the swimming pool at the Lanta Sport Resort.
