It’s fair to say that many Hotels and Resorts around both Hua Hin and Cha-Am have gymnasium facilities with a variety of weight training equipment and a ways for you to get or keep fit.  These facilities are typically available for visitors as well as guests and offer very modern and well maintained equipment in air-conditioned attractive surroundings and often with the assistance of trained staff.

However if you are the sort of person who doesn’t really want to spend up on gym equipment but would  prefer a more casual local place nearby to your home and are living around Cha-Am, there are at least two ways you can join the locals and work out.
