Gym at Setapak, Wangsa Maju (Muscular Gym)

There were once I struggle in finding some info about gym room at Setapak, Wangsa Maju area gym room.

So, I went to all gym room around there, 1 at steven corner closed long time ago, 2 gym room near by metroview, 1 at alpha angle, 2 at sri rampai (which 1 called Spartan gym I believe is closed due to the gym room I share below is greater), 1 at kota danau, and of cause I do pay a visit to Celebrity Fitness at Wangsa Walk, guess what?!

The fees is simply too expensive for me.

After my own experience tried out all the gym rooms, I would like to blog it and share it, this 2 places are the best I can found. Hopefully can give you guys some clues.

1st. Muscular Gym at Sri Rampai, Rampai Business Park 
      (near by the Old Town White Coffee Cafe) 
      
      The BOSS FB: http://www.facebook.com/harryriehairie?sk=info


 it is behind the "KK" restaurant and ground floor of it is "Max Automart" (car accessories shop)

 One best thing is the entry fees, RM4 once! if I'm not mistaken monthly fees is RM75 and registration RM150 which is not worth it. (p/s: most of the gym rooms there are RM4/entry)

Then, by collecting the tickets every time you enter, 10 tickets free for 1 2L mineral water.

 This is the dumb-bell, free weight area.

 Nice machines are available there, for chest, shoulder, leg, biceps, back, abs..great and functioning.

 The dumb-bell area, but the treadmill is for members only. (anyway, go jogging at outdoor then!)

 the multi-function station

 One thing that annoy me sometimes is when you work out during peak hours (after 6pm)
see tons of people working out there. ( expect during Puasa season and rainy day)

 This is the rack a.k.a. No-lock locker, don't bring too fancy stuff there kay! they do sell some chilled soda drinks, mineral water and protein (that is over-priced, hahah...don't buy). Plus, don't ever go into the counter and try to grab those bars, the in-charge guy will scold you like hell!

Besides, there is a great weight scale that allow you to keep tracking your weight as one of my Must-Do-Thing there every time.

 have a TV hanging there to let you simply have a glance when you're boring, music will be play sometime then alternatively playing some sport channel as well.

 the toilet there is clean and usable, though is simple but what you expect by paying only RM4? appreciate it =) and there is a simple rest area beside, couple of seats and sofa there.

 they've personal trainer there as well, but I don't need one, ask the counter if you need one.
 This is the working hour of the gym room. ( if the time changed, they'll have prior notice)

So, to sum up, it do have great environment, painting of the gym room is quite energetic (white and red), people there are mostly 1 Malaysia, great people and some can actually motivate you, but if you're expecting for hot chick, sorry la bro, you can't see it, because it called Hardcore Gym!

Well, be respect to others, so others will respect you.

"DON'T THROW THE WEIGHT! Such action is so brainless and it will never turn you to a bigger dude also! hehe...take good care of all the stuff!"
