In addition to city fitness centers, you can also visit gyms at hotels, such as «Sheraton», «Novotel». Such gyms, as usual, are quite comfortable, equipped with conditioners, shower rooms, saunas. They offer good service, spa treatments. However, they are not very large, have few exercise machines and cost a lot.
Many people, having chosen the gym, forget about relevant details of training process – right methods and competent approach.
If you have never done any sports, trainings without an instructor can be even do much of harm. Many people start to do exercises without elementary knowledge of safety arrangements and any prearrangement, and then pay lots of money to treat disc prolapses, knee joint injuries, wricks, etc.
To avoid that, turn to experts for help (at least in the first year of your trainings).
In Nha Trang we can recommend you two instuctors: Arthur and Kate (Instagram). They are really good at their job and have much experience.
Contact them and they will tell you.
That is all, be healthy, strong and energetic!
