  1. Thanks for the info, do you know if these gyms have air conditioning? That has been my main issue. If I wanted a sweat box i’d run outside!

    • I feel you! National Team Fitness definitely does. I have loved my time working out there this summer, they are not afraid of keeping the gym at the correct temperature (So in the winter its cool, but not chilly like some around). Gudeok Stadium complex should as well considering as it is a larger complex. Daewoo, does not, but they have a good amount of fans, and Gaya will most likely not.

  2. oo- also, where can I find the healthy eating guide?

    • That will be posted in a week or so! Slowly getting everything together but we wanted to get out Gym stuff!
