The Muscle Factory gym is one of those gyms that an athlete may find it well equipped in Bangkok. Indeed, the gym is one fo the best for those who love weight training. In this post, I’ve explained everything you need to know about the gym. In other words, I’m going to answer you the following questions.

Who should join the Muscle Factory gym in Bangkok?
The Muscle Factory gym in Bangkok is a desirable gym for those who are interested in muscle building and/or Olympic lifting. Additionally, powerlifters may also find it a better gym, but advanced powerlifters may not.
Intermediate and advanced bodybuilders who are interested in isolated besides primary movements can find there dozens of different machines. And it’s less likely to find those training facilities in other gyms of the city. For Olympic lifters, there are also enough space and equipment for squat, clean and jerk and snatch.
Who should not join the Muscle Factory gym in Bangkok?
Different gym chains operating worldwide exist in Thailand, in particular, in Bangkok such as Fitness First, Virgin Active, Anytime Fitness and Jetts Fitness. Besides providing a limited weight area and facilities, these brands offer some classes such as yoga, body combat (kind of Thai Boxing), dancing and stepping. But you can’t find such classes at the Muscle Factory Gym in Bangkok. Also, those gyms provide some other facilities such as sauna, water, tea, coffee, attire, towel and swimming pools, in most cases for free, in which you can’t see such facilities in the Muscle Factory gym in Bangkok. Meanwhile, there is no air conditioner in the gym, but there are some huge ceiling fans.
As a coach, I don’t care much about how modern and comfortable a gym is or what they offer besides weight facilities. You have only one purpose when you join a gym, health and beyond, for instance, strength, gaining muscle and so forth. For this reason, a gym which is fully equipped in barbell and related equipment may be the best gym for everyone regarding their health and beyond. And the Muscle Factory Gym in Bangkok provides such facilities both for a recreational or serious athlete.
If you enjoy and may get benefits from joining some classes or facilities, for example, yoga, dancing, sauna, swimming pool, the Muscle Factory may not be a desirable place for you. Because the gym doesn’t provide anything else beyond some body weight and weight training facilities, so-called cardio machines, a boxing ring and some heavy bags to train.
Where Muscle Factory Gyms are located?
Unfortunately, Muscle Factory doesn’t have more locations in Bangkok and also in other parts of the country. Up to now, they have two locations in total, one in Bangkok and one in Pattaya. For this reason, most people may find the gyms quite far from where they live or work, in particular, in Bangkok.
The Muscle Factory Gym in Bangkok
The muscle factory gym in Bangkok is located in Sukhumvit 56. They operate from 7 am up to 11 pm. During this time you can give them a call or send them an email for any sort of inquiry. You can go there by BTS Skytrain, Taxi and Grab. I prefer Grab or BTS Skytrain because a taxi takes longer time due to traffic on the way.
The Muscle Factory Gym in Pattaya
I’ve never been to their branch in Pattaya and every picture you see in this blog post is taken from their gym in Bangkok. For this reason, I don’t know much about their branch in Pattaya.
What sort of training can I do there?
As I said above, the Muscle Factory gym in Bangkok is a great place for Olympic lifters and bodybuilders. There are dozens of different machines to train alongside barbells, benches, squat racks, dumbbells and so forth. You can find such equipment very rare in other gyms.
You can also perform Thai boxing and western boxing at the Muscle Factory gym in Bangkok. There is a standard boxing ring with 4 heavy bags and some gloves. Their heavy bags and gloves are not much in perfect condition. Well, they may be fine if you are a recreational boxer or kicker, but not for an advanced or even intermediate athlete.
If you love cycling or running on a treadmill, the gym also provides so-called cardio machines on the second floor of the gym.
Last but not least, for powerlifters, the Muscle Factory gym in Bangkok may also be a serviceable place to train. Because they have some sort of powerlifting equipment and tools as well.
What sort of exercise equipment can I find at the Muscle Factory Gym in Bangkok?
The gym has too much equipment which most people may find it very useful (for me a squat rack and a bench are quite enough to train my clients and myself very effectively). The gym has many sets of dumbbells, starts from 1kg up to 60kg. Of course, a 60kg dumbbell is still light for some advanced athletes.
There are many machines, most for isolated movements, where you can only find only in some countries like the USA. There are almost 6 squat racks and several areas for Olympic lifting. Both plastic and metal plates are available there, from 1 kg to 25 kg. For some athletes, in particular, female athletes a plate less than 1 kg is also necessary, but, unfortunately, you can’t find there. At the Muscle Factory gym in Bangkok, you can find two types of standard barbells, one for males and one for females (with a small diameter). As I mentioned above, there are also a standard boxing ring, four short and long heavy bags, some gloves and some boxing/sports mats around the ring.
Additionally, at the Muscle Factory Gym in Bangkok, you can find some box jumps made from wood, heavy stones, tyres, kettlebells, medicine and exercise balls. Meanwhile, on the second floor of the gym, there are some so-called cardio machines.
Cooked foods, energy and protein drinks do they provide?
Yes. They do. The Muscle Factory gym in Bangkok provides cooked foods which are mostly animal sources. Additionally, they provide, energy bars and drinks, coffee, smoothie, protein shakes and drinking water. As a coach, I don’t recommend eating the food that contains animal sources. And the ‘why’ behind ‘why I don’t recommend’ is beyond the contexts of this blog post. Most people think that without eating animal sources one can’t gain muscle mass, strength or even reach their optimal health, but this is not true. Indeed, it’s a myth.
Can I have a shower and sports attire at the gym?
At the Muscle Factory gym in Bangkok, you can have a shower but not sports attire and a towel. Of course, they sell some sports gears if you want to. While checking in, they provide their customers with a locker. In peak times, mostly in the evenings and probably in the mornings as well, you have to wait for a shower room and a locker due to lack of availability. There are only three shower rooms on the second floor for males. Also, they have toilets on the first and second floors of their gym and a sitting area on the first floor.
Is there free parking space at the Muscle Factory gym in Bangkok?
Yes! There is. There are free parking areas belongs to the Muscle Factory gym in Bangkok. One in the front of the gym and one on the left side of the gym. The left one is a large space, dedicated only for parking.
How much are the gym’s membership fees?
At the Muscle Factory gym in Bangkok, a six-month and one-year subscription is super cheap. The following table describes its membership price in Bangkok in 2020.
|Yearly||18,000 Thai Baht|
|6 Months||11,000 Thai Baht|
|3 Months||7,500 Thai Baht|
|1 Month||3,000 Thai Baht|
|10 Day Card||2,600 Thai Baht|
|Day Use||320 Thai Baht|
what about a personal trainer and coach, can I have there?
Yes. You can. Though they have mentioned different personal coaching packages at their website, they don’t have any service like that. Instead, they will give you contact information in which you have to get contact with a personal trainer through the phone. Or simply find out a health coach from outside.
As a health coach, I don’t believe in getting optimal and lifestyle results by working with a personal trainer. I don’t mean that I don’t value their understanding of fitness, indeed, I do.
But, for optimal lifestyle and health results, you need someone who can coach and help you at everything, at least in major parts of your life. Because everything in life is interconnected, and all these things make you the one ‘whom you are right now’. So, just by fixing one issue in life, you can’t embrace love and freedom your life. In other words, you can’t have the joyful life that everyone deserves to have. Whatever we do in life is only for one purpose ‘having joyful life’ whether it’s learning, making money or working with a coach.
Additionally, I’ve to say that there is only a small number of personal trainers who have an understanding of how to train their clients effectively and properly. Most of them just waste one’s time, money and break trust.
For this reason, we offer face-to-face Life Coaching in Bangkok and Online Coaching across the world. Our coaching program includes training in the gym and/or home, eating and nutrition coaching and ‘understanding yourself’ through ‘self-discovery coaching’. In other words, we offer a very comprehensive life coaching in one single coaching package. We can offer you the same coaching program at the Muscle Factory gym in Bangkok as well.
