    Smile Gym Near Kwai Chung

    Hi Friends,

    I am an Indian living in Kwai Chung Building, 30 Shek Pui Street, Kwai chung (Near Ta chuen ping bus terminus/The Apex).

    I want to loose some weight so planning to join gym.

    Please advice some affordable and good gym near my place.

    Thanks in advance

    I've attended several private gyms and now go to the government gyms run by the leisure department. There are 2 near you - at the North Kwai Chung sports centre and the Tai Wo Hau sports centre. I haven't personally been to those branches though, only the Tsuen Wan one in your area and Pei Ho street in Sham Shui Po.

    It costs $14 an hour or $180 per month unlimited time on a month by month basis, so if you stop for a while you don't have to pay monthly fees. You can attend any of the gyms with the monthly ticket, it doesn't have to be the one you bought the ticket at so you could also go near where you work if you wanted to.

    The drawback is you have to attend the 3 hour briefing on how to use the equipment and it took me months to find one in English. They suggest bringing a Chinese speaker to translate which I thought was a cop-out on their part as English is an official language and wrote several complaint letters to them about this.

    You can find information on opening times and what equipment is available here -
    LCSD - Fitness Rooms - Location of Fitness Rooms

    The space and standard of equipment is comparable with several of the private gyms I have attended in the past. I go in the mornings and they are not crowded but it may be different in the evenings.

    I hope you find something to suit your budget.
