For the ones that are looking for a gym or fitness club in Laos, I have summarized the gyms I have visited in Laos.
Vientiane Tar’s Gym, Laos
According to my investigations, there are multiple gyms in Vientiane. I searched for a fitness club in Vientiane that did not asked for an extraordinary entrance fee. Luckily, I had found one, not far from the backpackers area in Vientiane. This is the first Gym that I have visited in Laos, and I was craving for a work-out. You can find the gym on Google Maps by the name Tar’s gym. To be honest I don’t know if this is the real name, but search for it and you will find.
The gym is old skool, but not that old skool. The location is funny, it seems that someone’s living room is transformed into a gym. They have a squat rack and a bench, various dumbbells but not really heavy ones unfortunately. The biggest part of the gyms consist of machines and they also have two cable machines. Some machines are quite good, even though they seem to be unbranded.
Tar’s gym in Vientiane asks for a 10.000 kip entrance fee, which is really reasonable. Don’t expect other foreigners here, you will pumping your muscles with the locals. The gym is good enough for a solid workout.
