Anthony McCullough

After six years of service in the United States Navy that had taken a toll on his body and mind, Anthony decided it was time to improve his quality of life and started practicing Bikram yoga. He was immediately addicted despite his struggles. After continued practice, he felt changes happening, first in his body and then the brain.

    great food, fantastic staff-Callum Mac Gregor is a truly inspirational trainer and generally an outstanding first time experience at such a place. I recommend it very highly indeed.

      The Good - The place is amazing, particularly the staff. The concept is awesome. Food was very good and the place has everything you need to train like a demon and achieve your goals.

      The Bad - the gym is tiny, which would be ok if it was just hotel guests - which it isn't. During peak periods the place is over run and its impossible to train during these periods. - So if you are booking your PT's which sure its off peak.

      The other issue is maintenance - management is intent, on saving money where ever possible and will not conducting repairs and the whole place - other then the gym, is in need of repair. Just silly little things which is really quite annoying because the rest of the place is awesome.

      My advice to management is simple, spend a little to make far more money. Doing things like turning the steam room down to save money - will cost you in the long run because people get sick of that real quick. Up your pricing if you need, hell I would have paid far more if you make the place exclusive - so that program guests get what they have paid for.

      Certainly staff here from cleaners to PT's are simply amazing - they make the place - management needs to follow that lead, as that is what is letting the place down - and probably that's easy to fix.

      Overall my stay 8/10 - and yes I will be going back but not before checking to see if things have changed in the gym.

      Action Point was absolutely wonderful. The staff, the accommodation, the food, and the facilities were all beyond my expectations. Highly recommendable. I would definitely love to come back again. Thank you to everyone at Action Point for making this experience amazing.

      I turned up with excess baggage and weight, I left feeling renewed and physically the me that I am. I cannot thank everyone at Action Point enough. Eric Smulders in particlar but even more so the restaurant staff - never once went hungry through delightful food and compassion. I honestly have never had a better experience in my life. Go hard, go strong and achive your goal - you will die on day 2 but you will leave so much better for it. That is all I have to say about Action Point. I lost 4kgs and 9.8cm off my waist in 21 days. It hit me hard on Day 3, but push through and dreams come true. I really cannot recommend this place further, despite Pavlov. ;) Bread-day = fun-day. Definitly do the hot yoga, he is inspirational! Geeza Eric, you made my time and you made it all!

      Back to basics - accomdation = excellent. Food = devine. Overall rating AAA+, life-changing.

      Cannot fault the place and the staff in reception kitchen and Eric as trainer are quite simply a team and a half !!

      Incredible service and work so well as a team. Shafique as an owner is so helpful prior to arriving with any questions and the place is small but works like an extended family unit ..you will not want to go home!

      I loved this place. It was just the place for pinpointing my personal body goals in all aspects. The view & ambience of the place is outstanding. I was made to feel right at home from the start. My place of choice for focusing on fitness.

      The quality of the food was incredible! They customize the meals for your needs (weight loss, muscle gain, etc...) Great facilities, friendly staff and very professional PT's. Everyone goes above and beyond to make your experience the best possible.

      Originally we were supposed to stay for a couple of nights and then we just kept booking more nights because we couldn't leave. This place is a gem in Phuket. Some of the best food (and fantastic kitchen staff) who will cater to what you need. The views from the rooftop were stunning, and we were up there every morning to watch the sunrise. Pool and outdoor lounge area is really quite something. During the day, it can get quite noisy as there are classes/people working out, but if you are out and about it shouldn't matter. I got ill while i was there and the staff were very accommodating and willing to go above and beyond (e.g. bring some food to my room). The owner is really nice as he lives on premises and sometimes takes guests out on a boatride to the nearby beaches/islands. The rooms are big, showers are absolutely fantastic (!), but the only thing i would say is that the beds are a bit too soft for me (and I can't believe I am saying that). If we ever go back to Thailand, Action Point is a must stop.

      At first arrival, one sees only the front as a normal hotel. At check in the receptionist is helpful and will answer any questions. The rooms are nicely appointed, convenient and well positioned. The rooms are a short in hotel walk to the fitness rooms; located on two floors. The fitness center is top of the line and quiet; without worry of the iPhone or loud noises from others.

      There is a training area downstairs. This area is nicely equipped and can be used for Crossfit, Muay-Thai, Body weight training and a multitude of other training venues. The resort is built on creativity and all training opportunities are maximized. Training areas have 24 hour availability. Don't let your mind limit your training opportunities. This resort has a fitness motivating environment from the atmosphere.

      There are new units for sell and perhaps rental across the way from the resort. The restaurant is located on fourth floor as is the pool, steam room, and fantastic view. There is an observation deck on top of the resort. With a nice camera there are abundant opportunities for photos from the observation deck. There is a 7/11 a short walk down the hill.

      " I came to action point fitness after a recommendation of a friend. It has been life changing for me as I got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in December and with working and partying all high paced, I had to change something or I was going too end up with serious health issues.

      After 9 weeks, I am no longer diabetic according to my bloods and have lost over 20 kg. The knowledge and training methods of the action point personal trainers eric and callum has been very helpful in helping me over come these challenges.

      Actionfit classes have help me regain my fitness levels

      I have started to learn bikram yoga .

      The food from the restaurant has been phenomenal and they always are on hand to help you with your dietary requirements. The weight loss package has worked for me.

      I have been very committed, the trainers can only do so much and the rest I had to put the effort in.... all in all I will leave actionpoint 20 kg down and knowledge of how to keep it off and lose more"

      The rooms are OK size, the rooms are clean and simple, I like that they have a balcony. Hotel mirrors could have been more cleaner, did not replenish cotton bids used which I found weird. No free water given 7 eleven convenience store round the corner. Staff helpful to book taxi. Advice book taxi with Meter a lot cheaper. From airport they will charge 1000 I got my taxi fair and a excursion to maya beach Nc phi phi island for 2800 which was a good deal. Rawaii nice as you have some of the nicest beaches near, however taxi expensive to move around. Remote hotel good to relax and if want to work out have everything.

      The best thing about this hotel is the breakfast you can pick one option on menu with a juice and a latte or cappuccino etc. Cooked and seasoned well. With a beautiful view of pool and beach which makes hotel worth it.

      The gym is very good but do not understand why no where to have water of your working out. Locals use the gym as well gym on every level of hotel.

      I actually got cab to take me to tiger kingdom and big Buddha on way to hotel from airport for 300 extra as would have been very expensive to come back up into Phuket to go to those excursions. He was very nice and waited for me

      From the moment I arrived at Action Point, the staff were amazingly hospitable and helpful! The rooms are very nice, the food is super tasty and healthy, and the GYM is great. Sofia the head chef, and the two other girls working at the restaurant (Jai and Nice) are friendly, funny, and very accommodating to any special needs or wants you might have. If you are vastly out of shape like me, and need a place for total rejuvenation, I suggest staying here for one of the full programs. I honestly could not be more pleased!

      I stayed at Action Point for nine days recently. I wasn't going there to change my life, I just had a few days spare so wanted to spend a few days in Phuket staying somewhere nice, practicing some yoga and relaxing. I signed up for the yoga and fitness retreat, which includes accomodation, meals, personal training sessions, massages, and daily yoga sessions. The staff were all so friendly and caring - even though I kept mostly to myself it felt like being part of a family. The food was delicious and healthy, and they will even get in raw food from a local cafe if you want. The hot yoga classes were excellent. But the jewel in Action Point's crown has to be Eric, one of the personal trainers. It is obvious that health and fitness is his passion in life, and he genuinely cares about each and every one of his clients. He is very exact and precise with his instruction, and he is very creative in designing workouts. His knowledge of all things fitness-related is almost encyclopaedic. It has been a few years since I've done any real strength training due to medical reasons, but these workouts made me remember just how much I love this sort of thing, and I am continuing to workout this way now that I'm back home. In short, I had a brilliant time and I will most definitely be back.

      I recently completed an 11 day fitness regime at Action Point. Food was fantastic, staff were wonderful and a real pleasure to stay here! Room was nice and clean.

      I trained with Annas, he is a fabulous trainer. Very knowledgeable and patient. Saw results in the short time under his training.

      The others I met on the program were great, good friendship and comradery. Highly recommend this facility to anyone looking for real results!

      Room was very comfortable for the 2 nights i was there. The staff are all smiley and sweet. Breakfast was great and had by a pool and STUNNING view. The gym is fantastic.

      The room had a cute balcony with a cute view, and was a bargain for the price in August. I understand high peak season are almost double the price which i think is a bit too much. At night, the reception closes and you use a side door which doesn't seem safe. Especially considering how dark the area is at night. Naih Harn beach is not far also, which is a great hot spot. Overall, i would stay again. But depends on the pricing.

      Action Point Fitness has an absolutely fabulous healthy restaurant on the top floor which is accessible to outside patrons.

      Do yourself a favour and find it. With something for everyone,from vegan to flexitarian; low carb, high protein and a great range of delicious healthy juices and shakes ..... all with a stunning view over the pool to the bay and Islands in the distance.

      The Thai menu tends to be slanted towards western tastes but is delicious. The western menu is full of healthy options including the choice of gluten-free pasta.

      This place is on the roof top of a fitness center. The view of this place is amazing. You can see the sea and all the small boats in the water. You can buy a range of Thai food but also salads. They also have healthy shakes and juices.

      We had a pad thai and a salad with chicken. I have missed salad a lot while being here and this place really make a great salad. The chicken was perfectly prepared, lots of different vegetables and a lovely vinegar dressing. I will definitely be back when I need a good salad again.

      I've just finished a 3 week package at action point and I've honestly had the best time. I was a bit nervous before arriving because I wasn't sure exactly what to expect but everything has been better than I had imagined. All of the staff there are so amazing, you quickly start to feel like part of the family and they are just as sad to see you go as you are to leave them! The workouts and all the training I got was fantastic. I do a lot of exercise back at home but I learnt so much and my fitness/ flexibility/ strength/ stamina all increased dramatically in the time I was there- I just hope I can keep it up now! There was a great variety in all the workouts which made it fun and interesting, and more challenging! Eric (the main personal trainer I had) is like a guru he knows everything, very precise and professional and a great person to work with. The owners were also there during my stay and they were so friendly I often forgot that they were the owners. I felt like their surrogate daughter! Taking me on trips and including me in everything. The food in the restaurant is delicious as well, and refreshingly healthy. Action Point is an excellent resort and if you're thinking about doing any sort of retreat this is the place to go! They're also really accommodating if you want to change anything on your timetable or switch things up a bit, they do all they can to work around you. Oh and the accommodation was great as well, lovely big bedrooms with an ensuite, world class gym equipment, great squash courts, an infinity pool and beanbags on the roof! What more could you want? See you soon Action Point! Missing you already.

      I came here to do sport and for reading. Have booked the 3 week fitness package. Everything was taken care of and I could utilize my time here to the fullest. Top food, friendly staff, motivational trainers. I felt like home here after the a couple of days. Can definitely recommend to book a package, follow the plan and in between the gaps you can enjoy the great sea view pool, read, relax or take the bike / motorbike and go to the beach.

      I travel across Asia extensively and need a place to work as have no office. Keys for me are a gym, comfortable clean room, wireless, good food and close to the action if you want. Action point is my favourite. Three levels of gym, Thai food, roof top pool, close scooter to the beach and hundreds of restaurants plus very affordable. Top place to live and work or just get fit.

      I was so happy to find this resort tucked away from the party areas of Phuket. The rooms were clean, modern, and comfortable. The bathroom had an amazing shower. The staff were friendly and attentive. The restaurant has a beautiful pool and an amazing panoramic view. The gym facilities were great! Highly recommend staying at action Point! The owners were also there when I was there and treated us like hosts in their home.

      Beautiful view from the rooftop and pool of Chalong Bay. Very reasonable pricing with many amenities including yoga, gym, restaurant/bar, rooftop pool, steam room, ice baths, crossfit and more. Pretty much all you could ask for! I have looked around for a good gym and yoga and this was by far the best choice with the best price! Definitely recommend!

    • Louise China

      Quiet location, amazing soft beds; large rooms with wooden floors and super size shower. Just what I needed to get over jet lag from travelling to Asia again. Breathtaking infinity pool with room to relax in the adjoining restaurant or deck close by. Lovely cooked breakfast included with great coffee served by super friendly staff. You don't need to be a fitness freak to stay here, I didn't go near the gym. A little far from Rawai beach/Chalong Bay unless you have transport and if you're walking you are on the side of the road, literally, as motorbikes and cars rush by.

      The staff was really helpful all around, when we got to Phuket the airline (Bangkok air) delayed our luggage, the taxi took two hours to get to the hotel because of traffic so when we arrived we weren't in a great mood. The staff was compassionate about our situation and called the airline to have them deliver our bags to the right hotel. Sergio, the temporary manager went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable with our stay, he gave us tips about the area and suggested we get a scooter to get around so we wouldn't waste money on taxis. The front desk ladies were also very helpful, we needed a motor scooter to get around and they had one brought to us, we needed some clothes washed so they sent them out for us at a good rate and they also booked our day trips to James Bond and Phi Phi islands. We also thought that free American style breakfast every morning was a big plus. The hotel also has a huge gym conveniently on site which is very clean and has up to date equipment. If you're into fitness this is definitely a place for you. Everyday I rode our scooter to one of the best Muay Thai gyms in Phuket (AKA Thailand) which was a 5 minute ride. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this hotel.

      By far the best gym in Rawai Naiharn area of Phuket. Equipment is all first class most of it is Life Fitness brand and well maintained. The view from the cardio room and restaurant is a breathtaking view of Chalong bay and several islands. Friendly staff. Has a pool and sauna squash is also available as well as personal fitness and Muay Thai trainers.

    • Scott United States

      Mission accomplished! I was the guinea pig for the seven day weight loss program. Things went better than expected and the manager, Geoffrey, made sure everything ran smoothly. The program is a great value if you look around at some of the other wellness retreats in Phuket.Starting from the big picture and working into more details, the facility is only a year old so all of the equipment is brand new. The gym is better equipped than the one I use back in the US. The environment is good and there are serious workout folks (pretty people) around, but the gym never seems crowded. The environment lends itself to a great week of fitness, but the schedule can be customized to get out on a boat or explore the island for an afternoon or two.The instruction was top notch. The nutritional consult from Dave was enlightening and informative and I was able to act on his advice immediately. Trish, the muay thai trainer was great and demanded everything you had during each session. Geoffrey, the manager was also the personal trainer and he pushed me pretty hard an corrected some bad technique that I had acquired over years of quasi training.Being only a year old, the rooms were spacious and modern. Bed was a comfortable as any luxury hotel I have stayed in. It is very quiet at nice and half the rooms have a sea view which is a nice way to wake up. Wifi was great.The restaurant and staff were great. I was a little apprehensive about signing up for a seven day meal plan, but the food was gourmet from the salads to the steaks. Great thai food too which is really healthy if you hold the rice and noodles. A new gourmet chef was starting when I was leaving, so the menu should continue to evolve. The detox juices and post workout protein shakes (which are hard to find in Thailand) were great supplements.The view from the restaurant and roof (where the massages happen) are spectacular and something you would not expect when you first drive down the soi. Sauna and pool were great and a welcome relief from the workouts.The hotel is located in Rawai and there are places within walking distance from the hotel, but if you rent a scooter which can be delivered to you at the hotel, it opens up an amazing area. Nai Harn beach is only a five min ride and one of my favorite "local" beaches in Phuket. I started most of my days walking around the Nai Harn beach lake and up to the lookout point where a cold coconut was a tasty reward.If you are looking to focus on fitness and not as much partying (although that can be found as well), then this is a great option.

      We stayed almost 2 weeks and we can't complain about anything. The gym is perfect and so much fun to train in. We went almost every day and never there where too many people training. Also the rooms are very modern with a very comfortable bed. We travelled for almost 2 month and nowhere we slept so good.

      I was looking forward to an active getaway that also allowed me some down time. I settled on Action Point because of it's smaller room capacity, and location. Yes, you will need to rent a scooter as it is not necessarily within walking distance; but everything is a very short scooter ride away - which, in itself, provides an excellent opportunity to see the sights of Phuket Island.Action Point picked me up from the airport, and upon check in, I saw that they also rented scooters - they made a phone call, and within minutes, a scooter was there, paperwork in hand. This pretty much defines the rest of my experience with their staff. Any request that I made was met with a smile and was dealt with immediately and to complete satisfaction.The rooms were modern, clean and spacious. The waterfall shower was definitely a nice touch, and was always just the right temperature. The gym is by far the best I have ever seen at a hotel. I don't think there's a bad view that's even possible from this hotel. The roof top restaurant - breakfast was included; but I enjoyed other meals here as well - was always fresh, delicious, healthy and served by a very attentive, professional and friendly staff.While there are several perks to this hotel, by far what sets it apart are the people. Yes, it is absolutely and awesome gym, an outstanding restaurant, and it's location is off the beaten path that allow for some 'rest and recuperation' between working out at the gym, or hitting up one of the local Muay Thai camps, or just taking in the sights and sounds of Phuket, the staff here is incredible. They were always attentive, greeted you with a smile, and always asked about your day and gave excellent recommendations on how to make your trip even better.Honestly - if you are travelling to Phuket, and whether you are a fitness buff or not, strongly consider this hotel. I know I will be back here for sure on my next trip to Phuket!

      I loved this place! I had been travelling for a while and booked here to get some much needed exercise. the gym is spread over two floors and is excellent and has great state of the art equipment and studio/squash courts downstairs. The rooms are spacious and clean with nice views. The restaurant makes healthy tasty meals at great prices and there is a lovely rooftop pool with views of the bay! The only downside is the hotel is about a 10 min drive from any of the strips of restaurants and bars which makes for expensive transport so I would advise renting a scooter! But if you just wanna chill and get some exercise in a fantastic gym this place is perfect!

    • Sylvio China

      The rooms are pretty spacy and very modern. Big flat screens with HDMI connector at the side for connecting a BD player or such. All the lights can be managed by remote control. Nice rain shower. The staff is very friendly and most speak okay-ish English. The gym is just AWESOME! Well equipped, you basically have everything, clean and full functioning. The rooftop pool is nice and the restaurant features delicious dishes to choose from. TOP experience. I'll come back for sure.
