  • David Catterall on New Karon Gym Testimonials: “I use a good gym regularly in Australia. I was concerned about having a break from training while on holiday. I did also wonder how the relative difference in temperature and humidity would effect me. The New Karon Gym is adequately air conditioned and having large fans made it a pleasure to work out there. They had almost all the equipment I am used to and Andrew was of great help to me. Thanks Andrew.October 25, 2023

  • John on Phuket – New Karon Gym: “Fantastic big gym and Andrew is great. Highly recommendedJune 28, 2019
  • Selle on Phuket – New Karon Gym: “Very nice gym with all the equipment you need for a good workout. Enough barbells, dumbells and weights for experienced lifters. This place also has a huge variety of machines for every bodypart. I visited several gyms in Thailand and never had the possibility to lift the way I do at home. Also the gym is well air conditioned and has friendly customers. Daypass is 350 baht which is appropriate for the gym. You can also pay for 10 days or even longer and get a discount. The owner is very friendly and can offer a variety of helpful tips and advice. Ranging from training, to nutrition up to the best restaurants in the vicinity. You can also rent a motorbike there. I highly recommend you check this place out if you want to lift on your vacation.December 9, 2018
  • Patrick on Phuket – New Karon Gym: “I joined New Karon Gym the very first day I arrived in Karon Beach and am so glad that I did. This is a beautiful gym that has fantastic equipment, lots of free weights and great cardio machines. The gym is kept nice and cool and may just be the cleanest gym I’ve ever seen in my life. The staff is awesome and always treated me very politely. I also rented a scooter from Andrew (the owner of New Karon Gym) and have to say that Andrew is a GREAT guy, a pleasure to deal with and very honest. Thank you for making my stay in Karon so much better!! PatrickJanuary 8, 2018
  • Lisa Conway on Phuket – New Karon Gym: “Andrew Thank you for having me in your gym. I enjoyed the friendly environment very much. Can you pass a msg to Patrick please for me that I didn’t say good bye because I didn’t find him on the beach. Tell him I said goodbye and “don’t forget to put the towel down” Lisa from sunny Australia xDecember 23, 2017
  • Patrick Byrne on Phuket – New Karon Gym: “Hi Andrew, Awesome looking gym! I’m a Canadian coming to vacation for 3 weeks in December. Do you sell 1 week or 2 week gym passes and, if so, how much? Regards, PatrickNovember 16, 2017
  • Frank on Phuket – New Karon Gym: “I am going to be straight and to the point. Andrew is a phenomenal guy who is as straight up as they come. Do well by him he will do well by you. His gym is awesome and he is open 9-9 (which is crazy for the area because most places open at 11). Gym is always clean, cold, and you are always greeted with a smile, towel and locker key (Gym is awesome and you will not be disappointed). Protein (for us lifters) is insanely expensive in Phuket if you can find it and he helped me out with this too. He really is a one stop shop for anything that you need Phuket. Drove/picked us up 3 times to the airport for an extremely reasonable price and he gets you there quick! The man is a jack of all trades and rents motorbikes as well as rental space to stay (which btw he did by hand and is absolutely beautiful). Don’t shy away if you are not a gym goer, Andrew can certainly enhance your stay in Phuket.July 28, 2017
  • Chris on Phuket – New Karon Gym: “Training at new gym area is fantastic…recommend to everyone!!! Chris from germanyDecember 15, 2016
  • Alex on Phuket – New Karon Gym: “I have been to Phuket 3 times now and always go to Andrews gym. He is an excellent host and provides excellent service. I do not ride scooters in Thailand, so I used Andrew’s limousine service instead. I very much recommend him as an honest businessman and someone that provides outstanding customer service with your best interests in mind. So refreshing, and what an outstanding service in Thailand. If only more aimed to make money by making customers happy, like Andrew!December 15, 2016
  • Julian Botero on Phuket – New Karon Gym: “I was in Phuket last November and Andrew was super helpful while in Karon. I went to rent a scooter and ended up talking with Andrew for a while about my travels in Germany. The hotel we had booked messed up our reservation, so I was looking for a place to stay for a few nights. Andrew was able to help me out and took me over to a really good and cheap place close by and helped me get a room. He even helped us out with a ride to the airport when we left. I would recommend going to Andrew if you need help with anything while in Karon. Danke AndrewMay 11, 2016

  • Quy on Phuket – New Karon Gym: “Andrew not only runs the best equipped and located gym in Phuket, but also rents well serviced and modern motor bikes. When we’re in Phuket, Andrew is our motorbike guy. He charges resonable prices and is trustworthy. Do not rent somewhere else. Why? Because you will get scammed. Other bike rentals claim damages when you return the bikes. Not so Andrew. He is German and stands for quality, reliableness and fairness. Also he can provide you with all necessary informations for your entire stay. Andrew is our guy, let him be yours as well! Danke Andi, dafür dass du immer ein Bike und einen hilfreichen Tipp für uns hast!July 16, 2015
  • Eric on Phuket – New Karon Gym: “Awesome service with great hospitality. Triple thumbs upJune 20, 2015
  • Vasiliy on Phuket – New Karon Gym: “Good double business (gym+bike rental) run by german guy. I took a bike for 12 days there, which made the price very attractive (roughly 1600 baht for the whole period). The good point is the level of trust, that comes to you, when you see european face of the owner of business. I used to rent bikes on Samui island twice, took them in Thai small rental pionts and the quality of that bikes was really awfull. The german guy from Karon beach really takes care of its bike-park, no any problem with helmets, breaks, gasoline, etc. Guess that the story with the gym is the same, but i did’t try it unfortunately. Very recommended! Best wishes, Russian couple from Moscow.June 3, 2015

  • Gary - UK on Phuket – New Karon Gym: “I spent a few months in Karon and one of the goals of my trip was to lose some weight and get fitter. After looking at the other gyms in the area it was clear that the NKG was the best option. Andrew has packed a wide range of machines and equipment into a relatively small space and is available for advice whenever you need. Air conditioned with sea views and some fine tunes playing in the background it’s a great location to improve yourself. Highly recommended. Gary – LondonApril 29, 2015
  • Phil & Yeshi on Phuket – New Karon Gym: “We just got back from Phuket where we rented a Honda 125 for a week from Andrew. We hunted all around town for a bike to rent and kept getting told that we had to leave our passports with them as security for return of the bike. We would never do this in any country, let alone Thailand! When we finally met Andrew and his wife they were a breath of fresh air! Everyone else had been trying to keep our passports AND charge us too much. Andrew was Professional, down the line and honest. At one stage an ATM swallowed our card. My girlfriend went to the gym and Andrews lovely wife called him and, even though he had left the gym to go elsewhere, he came back to see if he could help us. He is a great guy and is his wife is so nice. Don’t rent a bike from anyone else. They are definitely THE BEST! Phil & Yeshi from Perth, Australia.April 18, 2015

I spend a good time looking around and the condition of the scooters in other places is horrific! I definitely recommend to rent a scooter at the New Karon Gym. Also, if you’re looking for a reliable Airport pick up – he’s your guy! If I come back to Karon, I’m going back to Andrew! Best, CarlApril 7, 2015
