Location

Toan Tuan Fitness and Yoga is located around 15-20 minutes walk north of the centre of Hoi An. Its location is correct on Google maps and it’s easily visible from outside, a little set back from the road. Go down the steps to enter the building.

Facilities

This large gym is broadly divided into one big room with cardio and resistance equipment, with a second room at the back containing a functional training area and free weights. Additionally there is a sizeable studio. The club is well-equipped with fans throughout, although there is no air-conditioning.

Weights

The weights area is split between the resistance equipment which you can find in the main room, and the free weights, which are with the functional training equipment.

You’ll find a generous range of both disc-loadable and pin-operated resistance equipment for both upper and lower body. The equipment is all fairly modern, well-laid out and in good condition.

Disc-loadable equipment includes a shoulder press, chest press, rear-kick and squat machine. There are also a number of adjustable barbells.

There’s no shortage of bench press stations in Vietnamese gyms and Toan Tuan Fitness is no exception. You’ll find a whole row of them with adjustable benches. You’ll also see a couple of lat pulldowns, hip extension benches and inclined abs benches. I also saw (and used) a 2 in 1 squat and Smith machine.

In the other room, you’ll find dumbbell freeweights up to 40kg and several benches for weight training. These are laid out over a fully matted floor, next to the functional training equipment.

Functional Training

Tuan Toan Fitness has an excellent functional training area with a generous amount of floor space around it. There’s a large rig with lightweight medicine balls up to 10lbs, TRXs and kettlebells up to 30lbs. You’ll also find battleropes, an abs roller, a boxing bag, gloves, a skipping rope and some yoga mats. All in all, it’s a great well-equipped, modern area, located in a separate part of the gym with the free weights.

Cardio

The club has a reasonable range of modern cardio equipment and fans in operation around it. You’ll see ten treadmills, three ellipticals and five Spin bikes. In the back room you’ll find a number of vibration machines, along with machines with “exercise belts”. I have to admit I had to look these up to see what they are; whilst common in Vietnamese gyms, they don’t have such a good rep in Western society. Personally, I think exertion is the way forwards for burning calories, not vibrating – see what you think!

Summary

Toan Tuan Fitness is an excellent gym and I especially liked the fact that there are many duplicates of popular equipment here. The large functional training area is also a huge asset. For me the only thing missing was aircon, in a country with tropical heat. However, for 50k, the gym is a bargain for the price, and I’ve no doubt this would be hiked up considerably if aircon was installed; it seems only elite clubs in Vietnam install it and prices are many times higher.

All in all a great budget gym and I’d happily return.
