Gym anyone?

February 28, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m not a fitness enthusiast. Yet. Although I’ve been wanting and planning forever to enrol in a gym or a dance class.

But if you’re looking for gyms in Gensan, you might want to check out these establishments.

  • Fitness Mania Haus on RD Plaza
  • Muscletrack on Papaya Extension, near Magsaysay ave.
  • Arcadia on J. Catolico, same building as Yabut Clinic and the new Green Bank

I see this Lagao ProGym on the way home. It’s near Trade School but I’m not sure if it’s still operating.

If you ask me which one I will choose if I do get to enrol, I might go to Fitness Mania because it’s not airconditioned and they have regular dance classes or Arcadia maybe. It’s clean, the facilities are new. The proximity to my house might be a problem though. I believe Arcadia has the highest rates but it’s totally worth it.

    ito na ba ang “pambato” ng gensan sa Gold’s Gym and Fitness First? hahaha hehehe

    Hi Kevin! Of course the gyms here are behind by a mile and more from Gold’s Gym or Fitness First. But if you ask a fitness enthusiast, it’s not the equipment. It’s the desire to be fit. ciao!

    this looks like a good enough gym?

  8. March 12, 2011 at 9:16 am | #8

    Hi Cole! The gyms do not have websites yet except those that we feature in our blogs. If you’re moving to gensan, you’ll discover them eventually. So far only one gym offers yoga and that’s Arkadia. The Holiday Spa here does not have a gym, only spa facilities.

    Haha. Nice one. I’m planning to enroll in Arcadia, been 5mos. in Gensan already. and im staying for good because of work. Care to be friends? Coz i don’t have much here in gensan, I hope iI’d be satisfied withArcadia, because Fitness First gives a lot of encouraging for me to go on, and I’ve stopped gym because of the relocation.

    Been staying in GenSan for a month now (and might stay here for quite a while). I’m renting an apartment in Malakas and I’ve been looking for a gym around. It seems I really have to go downtown whenever I want to hit the gym kasi wala akong makitang malapit na gym around Malakas area.

    • November 2, 2011 at 10:16 pm | #18

      Hi Gelo! yes, as far as I know, no gym yet in Malakas but watch out for Horizon Spa near Lagao National. I think they are planning to put a gym there.

    Thanks Cathy! :) Btw, where’s the best place to jog around GenSan. I attempted to have my regular morning jog around the vicinity of Malakas pero ang daming asong nanghahabol. Haha!

    • November 6, 2011 at 5:55 pm | #20

      Hi Gelo! You can jog in Robinsons Place early morning or in Plaza Heneral Santos or Oval Plaza. Enjoy!
