Hi and greeting to everyone.

I'm moving to Penang soon. So, i'm looking for gym in the island. Im not quite familiar with Penang route as well.

Seeking help from everyone especially penang people here.

I know that there is Fitness First at Gurney. Is kinda costly for me. Is there any decent gym especially in georgetown?

thanks in advance.

I just went to several gym since past few weeks..
Celeb fitness
Fitness studio
G hotel gym
Burma road gym (no idea whats the name)
Health fitness

Tried out fitness studio n the burma road gym.. Both are fine.. Budgetary wise gotta choose burma road gym.. Its enough to make me sweat he3zz

Fitness studio has very small space for free weight n very crowded.. Hardly sweat since the air con too cold..

Chill.

Bump Up.

Anyone been to absolute fitness? I would like to know more before i sign up on their Queensbay branch.

Btw, i find it a bit weird that they do not want to put their price on their website/facebook. I did ask their sales person, and the excuse given is their price is tailor suit for each individual. WTF.... mad.gif

Anyway, the reason for signing up is, there is simply no proper gym around that area rclxub.gif

Added on July 23, 2011, 1:10 amFor what they are offering , the membership fees cheap man.

Initially, I just signed up for 3 months. After my expiry, I took up 1-year membership. They say their fees are best value for money. I can't disagree.

per entry is rm40. as if you wanna try the gym for the 1st time. its FOC.
as for your concern. absolute fitness has 3 branches in penang. Queensbay Mall, Autocity Juru, and Heritage Club Penang.
there will be two more outlets opening soon (by mid of next year) in All season park farlim and sunway carnival mall.
the price they offer is cheaper compared to other commercial gyms in penang. remember, if u take up the membership in one outlet, u can use all the outlets as well. and as for my concern, absolute fitness in heritage club is the only gym which has a swimming pool together.
the sales person and the company does not reveal the price as they have promotions atleast once a month. so its better to walk in their outlet and inquire for a better price as they have first time visit incentive.

I have joined Absolute Fitness @ Penang Heritage Club for 3 months. Would like to share my experience:

(1) The steam room is always under maintenance. From day 1 until today, it is under maintenance everyday.

(2) About 50% of the time I go there, no towel is available. I go there after work, I guess that’s the peak hours, but then isn’t it common sense to prepare more towels for peak hours? Anyway, they have a “1 towel per member” policy, so how hard can it be to estimate how many towels will be needed in advance?

You would think that they will get fed up with members always asking for towels, and do something about it. But no, they seems to be fine with it.

And I haven’t even start talking about those towels that seems torn, like 1 towel cut in half, to make it into 2 towels. What a great idea.

(3) For the past few days the swimming pool is closed for maintenance. Oh-oh, I have a bad feeling about where this is heading…

Personally I don’t use the steam room or the swimming pool, but I am still unhappy about this kind of service. Imagine someday, one by one, the treadmills go under maintenance…

One more thing, I used to wonder why some people like to vandalize things like water taps, shower heads etc. But I think I’m beginning to understand. When they get crappy service and nothing much can be done about it, that’s an easy way to get pay back. You give me crappy service, I vandalize your stuff? I don’t do this, and I don’t agree to this, but I’m beginning to see why.
