I still have to check these places one day but they are a little out of my area:
2. 健康瑜伽中心 973花蓮縣吉安鄉中山路1段72號 03-8541972
4. 中華日健(股)成美健康中心 970花蓮縣花蓮市華民街6號 03-8233376
I checked the following places but nada:
1. 健身院 970花蓮縣花蓮市中山路316號4樓 03-8342543
This number is no longer in service. Also, see note re: #3
3. 太陽神健身院 970花蓮縣花蓮市中山路314號3樓 03-8338006
The woman who answered knew I was looking for the Taiyang Gym since she said many people have called about it in the past. But she said it seems like the information posted online is wrong. It is a clinic. I though maybe it was just the phone number that was wrong however when I rode to the location it is a definitely a medical clinic, not a gym.
5. 徐名揚 970花蓮縣花蓮市中山路314號3樓 03-8338006
Same as above.
Yawei seems okay. The weight room was at the very back and a few people were using the equipment. It seemed to have the basics. The busiest areas were the treadmill/stationary bike area and the workout class studio, as well. But all these are near the front. I like that I can walk to the very back and hide out in the weight area. I will check out the other places (#2, #4) but I like that Yawei is across from the beach bike/walking path. It opens early (5am-10:45am, lunch break, then reopens until 11:30pm). It also as an outdoor track next door with some bleachers. I am not sure if it is part of Yawei or just part of a the outdoor stadium. They are advertising 2500NT a month, or 5000NT for three months, 7500NT for 6 months. That includes usage of all facilities as well as classes. I still have to find out if the monthly fee allows you to use the pool at the Zhongzheng location. I might try it out for a month and keep looking. So if anyone knows of other places I am still interested!
