Let's workout at Clark Hatch Penang!

Girls will usually grumble "I have gained weight!", "I am fat!" all sorts of reasons but they just refuse to exercise! Lol..I am one of them. I just don't like to go jogging in the park, some will just tell you they don't like to feel sweaty! I used to exercise when I am young, play badminton regularly, but after I found out there are actually fitness centre available then I started to join it since I am 18. I have stop for 2 years and now I return to Clark Hatch again!

After 2 months of holiday being a couch potato and travelling around, I realized I have gain weight! This is a night mare ever when you know you are fat and not able to fit in the clothes that you like! I can't allow myself to feel so that is why I decided to join them again! So this is the place that I spent most of my time after class.

My first thought of joining gym will always goes to Clark Hatch Fitness Centre in Kelawei Road. It is the only gym in Penang exclusively for LADIES! Good news to you right?! So you won't feel uncomfortable when you are using the equipments and man beside staring at you! LOL...

This is the main entrance of Clark Hatch fitness centre. You can't see it from the main road, it is located behind the Penang Flying Club. 

The front desk where you usually get your locker keys here. 

The pantry corner. They provide complimentary biscuits, tea and coffee for the members.  

Always love their cosy pantry. You can relax, read the papers after workout and enjoy their complimentary drinks. 

Here come the treadmills! They have plenty of it so don't worry as it is always available.

Here is the corner of the weight and fitness equipments. If you are not clear with the machine usage you may consult the front desk. 

The weight equipment to tone up your arms, inner thighs and etc. Just come and explore it by yourself!

Upright bikes and the stepper. The stepper strengthens the heart and circulation system as well as the muscles of the seat and legs. 

The second floor is the studio where classes will be carry on.

Crosstrainers are also called elliptical trainers or elliptical crosstrainers. It is design to imitate and stimulate actual walking, jogging and running movements. Ladies' favourite to workout on these!

They have huge mirrors everywhere.

The steam room. I have mentioned in my previous entry about the benefits of steam room. Benefits of steam bath read about it! 

A friendly reminder to the members to ensure the cleanliness of the steam room.  

Always love the saloon hair dryers and huge mirrors.

This is the classes available for September. The peak hour is usually between 10.30am to 12.30pm and 5pm to 8pm during weekdays and classes on Saturday. 

This is the joining fees. You can compare between Clark Hatch and other fitness centre. I can hardly get such prices from other fitness centre in Penang island. Of course there are still options in other area but Clark Hatch suits me the most as it is exclusively for ladies and the location is strategic cz it is near to my place.

This is the package that I am joining now. Students membership. RM60 per month. You can come anytime as you wish! I have been asked by the management to pay 3 months advance payment and the admin fees which cost RM230 upon registration.

This is the location of Clark Hatch Penang. It is along Kelawei Road, opposite Subway and beside UOB Bank. When you found Flying Club, Clark Hatch is just behind it.
