L.A.-based World Gym, one of the biggest names in American fitness centers (co-founded by Arnold Scharzenegger), has opened its first Asian outlet outside of Japan right here in Taichung. With about 1,800 pings of space, 300 imported work-out machines and other equipment, over 100 group fitness classes per week, 20 highly-trained instructors, jacuzzi and other opportunities to get in shape, this massive new addition aims to introduce an entirely-new standard for gyms in central Taiwan, not to mention Taiwan as a whole. Lisa Osborne, international master instructor for renowned Les Mills Body Training System, made a special trip to Taichung in August to train instructors in Body Pump (weights), Body Combat (martial arts) and Body Step fitness programs. RPM and Spinning cycling classes are also offered. Membership initiation fees are about NT$6,000 with an average NT$1,400-1,800 monthly rate. The gym is located in south Taichung, almost directly behind the railroad station, in Taichung's first real shopping mall, Taichung Central, which is also in the process of opening.
