im thinking about taking a job in a smaller city like fengshan or other cities that are fairly close to one of the bigger ones. Are there gyms in these places or only in the bigger cities?
You will have difficulty finding a gym in a smaller town / city. Chiayi, for example, is fairly big, but when I left there six months ago there was only one rather small gym.
I’m currently living in Cin Shuei. If I want to work out at a gym, I have to go into Taichung City.
Even so, there is always the exception. You might find one, but don’t put the kettle on.
