BEST Outdoor Gyms in Bangkok, Thailand

Best Outdoor Gyms in Bangkok, Thailand

I've been impressed with the health and fitness community in Bangkok, Thailand. There are a plethora of gyms and outdoor parks to help you stay active whether you are a local or someone just like me who is just passing through as a traveler.

I've been to a few gyms in Bangkok, but there is just something about working out at an outdoor park. It's like being primal, and being one with nature. There are plenty of outdoor parks in Bangkok, but not all of them have outdoor gym equipment. I have listed and added some photos of the two best outdoor gym parks in Bangkok. If you ever make it out to Thai Country, and you are looking for a place to workout for cheap or FREE, then you'll want to bookmark this page!

BENCHASIRI PARK

I really liked this park! It was only quick 10-12 minute walk (or 5 min run) from my downtown guesthouse. There are lots of activities that you can do here such as people watching, picnic, taking your kids to the playground, playing outdoor sports with the locals like: skateboarding (yes, there is a mini skate park), volleyball, badminton, basketball, swimming and running (2k per lap). And if you want to workout, then there are lots of outdoor fitness equipment throughout the park. The area that I liked best was where the benches and pull up bars were (towards the back of the park). This is where most of the locals go to do calisthenics and really show off their strength. There are also some food vendors offering snacks and beverages, non-alcoholic of course.

LUMPHINI PARK

This is the BEST outdoor gym park in Bangkok hands down! If you are a workout enthusiast, then you definitely want to check out Bangkok Gym, which is the largest outdoor gym area within Lumphini Park. There is nothing fancy about the gym equipment, and it's very basic, but it had everything that I needed to do my workouts. Bangkok Gym is free for locals, and only 20 Baht ($0.60 cents) day pass fee for non-locals. I loved the fact that you could do your strength workouts, and go out for a run in the park. The running/bike path (2.5km) runs right in front of the outdoor gym. There are also all kinds of other fitness equipment throughout the park which is along the running path. If you would rather workout indoors with A/C, then the park also has an indoor gym which you have to be a member, and membership is only 40 Baht per year, that's $1.21 USD =) This membership also includes a nice swimming pool. Talking about super cheap! Almost every night after 5:30pm there is a free group cardio workout at the park.
