Yellow Star Fitness Bangkok
277 Saliratthawiphak Road, Khwaeng Samsen Nai, Khet Phaya Thai, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10400, Thailand
Opening times: 1100-2200, 7 days per week.
Cost: 350 baht per go.
The facility comprises a small gym and a larger functional training area above. Yellow Star Fitness is set over two floors and there is ample floor space on both, in addition to a small-medium sized studio.
The gym was a little warm but is airconditioned. I arrived around 1615 on a Friday when it was empty, and one floor’s aircon was turned on especially for me, so would probably take time to cool down. In slightly busier periods this would be less of an issue. Due to the gym’s size, I’d recommend going off peak to ensure you can get on equipment if you wish to use anything in the small gym.
Weights and Cardio
The first floor contains dumbbell freeweights up to 25kg, one adjustable barbell, two treadmills, a bike, benches and a multifunctional station which offers pull up bars, a Smith machine and cables with adjustable weights. There is an additional set of pull up bars, though the handles are slightly low for the average Westerner.
The upstairs area is a fairly large and very attractive functional training area. There are a few light weight kettle bells (up to 10kg), two stacks of lightweight dumbbells from 1-10kg, battle ropes, stepboards, mats, TRXes and several benches.

The medium sized studio has around eight classes per week including Yoga, Fitball, Tabata, Aeroboxing, Zumba and BodyFit. It also contains a number of Swiss balls, freely accessible to everyone outside of class times.
Overall, Yellowstar Fitness is in good condition and well-kept and the staff very friendly and welcoming. This gym is ideal if you’re after functional training and space, and a little cheaper than the average gym in Bangkok to reflect the limited facilities. But if you need heavier weights, a range of cardio machines or resistance machines, then you’d need to look elsewhere. Otherwise, it’s a great place to train!
