Let’s admit, a gym membership isn’t always cheap. Even with many newcomer gyms spread around the island that allow you pay a drop in fee, the average cost per drop in at decent gyms starts from around 100K Rupiah for the right to sweat it out on stationary bikes or treadmills. If you are a visiting tourist, be prepared to pay more as some gyms apply different pricing for non-residents.
More popular Crossfit and MMA gyms may cost up to 200K Rupiah per drop in. While it’s affordable for many, not everyone is into those types of training – some people are simply seeking a well maintained gym with good equipment for an hour’s grind to sweat out all the happy hour calories from the day before.
While there are plenty of local gyms around that cost you less often as little as around 10K Rupiah per drop in. They’re fine if you don’t mind a tight spaced gym with a rusty and dusty weights with Indo house music banging in the background. If you don’t mind the heat humidity and fancy some real local experiences – these gyms can be fun too.
