That 500bt per visit if if you are an "Orange" member which requires a one-off payment (or so I believe) of 5000bt.
An individual visit last time I went was 700bt; but I think that at that time Orange members paid only 400bt; so I don't know if non-member fees have also gone up.

Checked their website and can't say I got any wiser. 500 per visit? Strange way to get regular customers. I thought most fitness venues/gyms had like monthly, 6 month, yearly prices and a drop-in price. I normally go to the gym 5-6 times a week for about 1 hour each time. If I were to go there it would cost me 2500-3000 baht every week, and maybe a 5000 baht fee up front. Yearly fee would end up at 130,000Baht!!!! If I calculate 5 days a week! Well if this is the price at True Fitness Arena I even want go there to check out that venue!

Yea they don't seem to have prices on the website. PBeacher's figures sound about right from what I remember last time I enquired; that's "Blue membership" paid on an annual basis

500bt per visit is providing you've paid for "Orange membership" which, last time I checked, cost 5000bt and I *believe* it was a lifetime membership at that price (ie one-off fee)

Last time I went for a day, a day-pass cost 700bt.

I noticed on their promotions page that M-Card holders can get 50% off a day pass. You can get an M-Card free at Bluport

I have been using @Lectic for a couple of years - they are having a bit of a much needed upgrade at the moment which is good news. I am happy there, I like the staff they are friendly and there are some good classes included in your membership.
