Dang Xinh Gym is located in the centre of Nha Trang just south of Loc Tho. It’s well signposted from the main street, on the correct location on Google maps.
This medium sized gym has some good equipment, although some of it is very dated. The gym is a little cluttered, especially in parts of the weights area. Fans were in operation when I went, and although I could see aircon vents, the staff on duty at the time wouldn’t put it on, which made for a very sweaty workout! This was especially the case by the dumbbell freeweights, where there was fan at the time.
Dumbbell freeweights go up to 30kg, with the top half of this range being located in the main gym, and the lower range being in the “PT area” – a sectioned off area with a decent amount of floorspace. The freeweight area is a little cramped and untidy, however there is plenty of floorpsace in and next to the PT area.
The PT area itself contains a few lightweight kettlebells, a 4kg medicine ball, a Swiss ball, 3 lightweight barbells, a couple of press-up bars (for doing press-ups without extending wrists), and a couple of mats.
In addition to this, you’ll find a Smith machine, a squat machine, a set of pull-up bars with cables and an inclined leg press. There is a fair range of resistance equipment too for both lower and upper body. This includes a lat pulldown, but the cable is a bit on the rickety side!
You’ll also find 2 hip extension benches and 2 inclined abs benches.
In addition to the above equipment in the PT area, you’ll find a TRX, stepboard and a set of battleropes.
Dang Xinh Gym hosts yoga classes daily at 14:30, Mon – Sat. I decided to push out of my comfort zone and give it a shot! I’m not a yoga regular although I have dabbled in a few classes in my time. To read about the my experiences of the class, see here!
The gym has a reasonable amount of cardio equipment, including around 7 treadmills, 5 crosstrainers, a stepper and a bike.
Dang Xinh Gym has a reasonable range of equipment, but the main downside for me was the stuffy temperature and less than ideal layout. 50k is a great price for this conveniently situated central gym though, but its main positive for me was the yoga class, which I am about to write about in a separate post.
