Indoor cycling is once again cool, thanks to Absolute Cycle’s rhythm cycling classes. Because of the energy given off by experienced instructors, the upbeat music and the friendly vibes, riders always leave each class with a smile. Plus, you burn 500 to 800 calories per 45-minute session (yes, go sign up now). It will be exhausting but, we guarantee, you’ll feel great after the workout. New riders need to attend a foundation class before moving on to more advanced sessions, so do check their schedule.
Drop-in pass: A one-time class is offered at THB1,050.

Whether you come to take a yoga class, lounge at the health cafe, or get pampered at the nail spa or hair salon, we’re sure you’ll be taken in by Beatroot’s charms.
Drop-in pass: A one-day pass of THB2,019 will get you three yoga or dance classes, a body scrub and a massage, or you can also pay THB999 for unlimited yoga or dance classes.

Thailand is the home of muay Thai, one of the most popular forms of martial arts in the world, which is why you shouldn’t miss out on this fitness experience. A visit to muay Thai academy Fitfac is just the thing—join a 90-minute class to burn off some of the calories you consumed while travelling (mango sticky rice is just too good to resist). You can also opt for the travellers’ package, which is offered every Saturday morning. In one go, you’ll get to watch professionals practice their moves, learn their techniques, and get a shot at sparring with former muay Thai champs.
Drop-in pass: THB400 for a 90-minute class or THB800 for a travellers package on every Saturday morning.
