This place is like a traditional gymnasium where the locals - children, teens, adults and even oldies came to do workout. They will start with warming up and doing push-ups for about 20 minutes. Then they will start spinning according to the music and later using the weights, something like a baseball bat (see the pic), they will exercise their hands. The whole performance took more than 1 hour.
