BB Gym Koh Chang is very simple to find, located on the main road at Lonely Beach and well-signposted outside, next to BB Lonely Beach Hostel.
The facility comprises a fairly small gym and a sizeable yoga studio upstairs. This Lonely Beach gym is open at the front and is cooled by ample fans, both overhead and from the wall. It was a comfortable temperature when I trained at 11:00, despite being very hot outside.
Most of the equipment is modern and everything I used worked well.
BB Gym Koh Chang has dumbbell freeweights up to 35kg, with some duplicates; there is a full weights rack in pounds (up to 50lbs) and another in kilograms at the heavier end of the range.
You’ll find a squat rack, Smith machine, lat pulldown, cable crossovers and some slightly low pull-up bars, if you’re tall. There are also a couple of bench press stations and a loadable inclined leg press.
For resistance machines you’ll find a peck deck, shoulder press, chest press, leg extension, leg press and camber curl.
The cardio equipment consists of three treadmills, three bikes and a crosstrainer. All looked fairly modern and in good condition.
Functional Training and Classes
The yoga area upstairs is ideal for functional training and was empty when I attended, making it ideal for any amount of floorwork. There are numerous yoga mats, since they teach yoga classes here twice a day at 10:00 and 18:30. In addition to mats, you’ll find blocks and Swiss balls up here.
Downstairs, gym toys consist of a range of six kettlebells, several abs rollers, more yoga mats and a Swiss ball. You’ll also find a couple of step boards here!
The prices of yoga classes are currently as follows:
1 class for 300 baht, 3 for 800, 5 for 1200 or 10 for 2000 baht. Check their website for up to date pricing here.
All in all, BB Gym Koh Chang is a great little gym with friendly staff and plenty of floorspace, thanks to the yoga studio. The pricing is a little expensive if you’re on a budget, but in line with what you would normally pay on a touristy Thai island and a similar price to other gyms in Koh Chang. It’s the only gym on Lonely Beach that I found and it does the job!
