About The Press

Gym and Fitness Club – Chaloklum, Koh Phangan

Welcome to THE PRESS – the only fitness club on the north coast of Koh Phangan and one of the best values on the island.  Our goal is deliver the best fitness experience we can at the best price we can, period.  Located just 1km from the beach and village of Chaloklum, The Press is positioned to offer a convenient, fun and powerful work-out to the diverse mix of divers, travelers, locals and expatriates that frequent the relaxed, picturesque north coast of Koh Phangan.

We have all new, high-quality cardio gear, strength-training machines and ample free-weights to satisfy those looking to either keep trim or get big.  The Press is air-conditioned and the scenic, mountainous view and relaxed environment make for an exceptionally comfortable place to get in a workout before enjoying the rest of your day on the island.  Some might prefer to keep their eyes on the view, but customers are also welcome to use the big-screen television and house speakers to enjoy their own music and video.  Lockers and shower are also available.

The view of the western mountains is at its best in the late afternoon as the sun falls, but the atmosphere and convenient location makes The Press a good choice anytime, rain or shine.  The Press is located 500 meters south of the Chaloklum 7-11, 200 meters off of the main road between Chaloklum and Thongsala.  Just next door to the Crow Bar & Restaurant – a local favourite and great place for a hard earned beer or three.  Look for the sign on the main road and turn!
