Sir Richard Branson’s eponymous fitness chain lands in Bangkok
Two years ago, Virgin Active launched its first ever fitness club in Bangkok, Thailand. Virgin Active Empire Tower Club is on Sathorn Road – it’s located at the central business district. Be it hanging upside down with our AntiGravity and Yoga classes, scaling up our cool indoor climbing wall or having a relaxing swim in our 20 metre indoor lap pool and Italian spa pool design.
Following this they have opened the doors to their luxurious club in the capital’s exclusive shopping mall, EmQuartier. At over 4,000 sqm and spanning three floors, Virgin Active EmQuartier over its rivals as one of the most luxurious fitness clubs in Asia. Virgin Active EmQuartier also offers a comprehensive group exercise programme. The six workout studios host over 200 different classes a week. There’s The Grid – a new, high-intensity training programme to make you stronger, faster. Developed exclusively by Virgin Active, this involves performing six core movements on a specially designed floor. There’s also Zuu – the new fitness phenomenon based on primal animal movement.
And that’s not to mention yoga, Pilates, cycling and high-energy classes like mixed martial arts. Last year, Virgin Active has just opened the 3rd Club at Central Plaza Westgate and 4th at Siam Discovery, the renovated modern shopping complex. This club makes it a point to ensure that you have great fun while working out in Bangkok’s most premium shopping district. Featuring the latest technology and equipment over a space of close to 5,000 sqm, Virgin Active Siam Discovery sets a new standard for lifestyle and fitness performance in this district. Virgin’s next club will open in Bangkok’s new Central Festival East Ville and feature children’s fitness facilities in December 2016. Virgin Active plans to invest 5.2 billion baht to open 20 clubs in the country.
