Sengdara Fitness Centre
What we say:
The biggest and most popular gym in Vientiane, Sengdara draws a crowd, and to some extent, a captive audience.
With two floors of exercise equipment for every need, several exercise rooms with mats and balls, daily classes, an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, steam rooms, saunas and a massage centre, this is the only fully equipped gym in Vientiane. Bustling after 18:00, Vientiane's gym-goers come to Sengdara, but unfortunately, this hasn't motivated the management to care properly for the place. Many machines are often out of order and won't get fixed for weeks. The steam-rooms aren't cleaned properly and the pool is over-chlorinated (watch your teeth!).
It's not quite in shambles, so most people make do and are content with the reasonable prices. The staff like to blast club music at full volume, so bring headphones unless this is to your taste.
A day pass with access to all areas costs 45,000 kip, aerobics class is 15,000 kip (daily from 18:00-19:00 and also 19:00-20:00 on Tue, Thu and Sat. Massage: 40,000 kip
