Main 2 Gyms in Angeles City
Not a lot of options for good gyms in Angeles as it’s a small town.
The main thing that sucks about most gyms here is that they don’t use the aircon so it is like working out in a sauna.
There are two Angeles gyms that I know do use the aircon, but they don’t really use it as much as they should.Still these are the best gyms in Angeles City so if you need a place to work out you probably can’t beat them.
It is kind of surprising that in a city with so many expats that there aren’t more gyms that use aircon. Then again many of the expats in Angeles are old and retired so they may not be into fitness.
Gyms in Angeles
AC1 is located over near Korea town. They seemed to use the aircon the most of the gyms I saw in Angeles so to me that makes it the best gym. There are plenty of machines and free weights but it can get a bit crowded at times. That’s not a surprise, I’m not the only one that likes to work out in comfortable temperatures.
It was actually a really good deal if you could sign up for a longer term contract. I can’t remember the exact costs but I think it was somewhere in the $20-$30 a month range, however that was a ‘promo.’
The one negative I have heard about this gym is that the personal trainers can be a bit aggressive trying to help you out even if you aren’t hiring them. Some people may like that actually, I would not but I didn’t notice it going on when I was there.
Fitness Connection is located on MacArthur Highway and is pretty near to Fields Avenue. I had heard this was the best gym in town so it was where I went first. It was $5 a day to work out, they also had long term plans but I wasn’t in town long at that point.
There was more equipment here then at AC1 and it wasn’t very crowded. I prefer to work out with less people around so that was nice. However it was hot and stuffy inside and had a pretty bad gym stench to it. This was a while ago so maybe they use the aircon more now.
Outside of those I’ve not really heard of any other gyms in Angeles City worth checking out.
Update – A cool Philippines Youtuber I follow, SezStyle, just put up an Angeles gym vlog:
Update 2 – Fitness Connection is now called Enhanced Athlete Gym. Did a review here.
