Sandakan Sport Complex

Sandakan Sport Complex

Set over sprawling grounds, the complex includes a running track built around a lake and badminton, tennis, basketball and even netball courts. It also has a huge swimming pool, padded areas for karate lessons, a huge outdoor rock climbing wall, complete with overhang, and even a decent sized gym. If you are looking to play team sports or go rock climbing in Sandakan, then this is your place.
The equipment is pretty basic and weathered. If what you care about most is being able to lift heavy weights and push yourself harder than you did last week, then you will be able to train here without an issue. Equipment wise, this place is pretty well stocked and has:
  • Dumbbells up to 50kg
  • Adjustable benches
  • Olympic bars
  • Flat barbell bench
  • Incline barbell bench
  • Decline barbell bench
  • Shoulder press bench
  • Cables
  • Squat rack
  • Pull up bars
  • T bar row machine
  • Lat pulldown
  • Leg press machine
  • Leg extension machine
  • Leg curl machine
  • Calf raise machine
  • Hack squat machine
  • Leg raise / dips platform
  • Treadmill
  • Static bikes
  • Cross trainers
  • Lockers

The sports complex even has a small cafe / restaurant and a small sports store in the grounds, which are in the main body of the building. Also, its worth nothing that despite the signs to the contrary, access to the gym is from the outside, by passing through the main lobby. The gym is at the back on the left, just as the building opens out onto the lake.
