Even if you don’t plan on fighting in the octagon, it’s pretty damn cool that this gym has one. They bill themselves as a gym for elite fighters, but they also welcome people looking for a more casual workout. UFC Gym is an international brand that provides a world-class training experience. You can focus on your own martial arts discipline, or you can mix it up and try others to round out your skills. They also have classes throughout the day, so you don’t have to change your schedule to fit in your workout.

Curves is a well-established name in the fitness world, now operating in 90 countries. They provide a supportive and safe environment for women to reach their fitness goals. They have a couple of locations around Ho Chi Minh City, but this one is ideal for people working downtown.
