S2S CrossFit was the first CrossFit gym to open in Bali on the busting streets of Berawa.
Emphasising having fun while sweating it all out, the classes are as welcoming to beginners as they are to experts.
They have all the necessary equipment, a comfortable gym setup, personal training sessions and an onsite cafe where you can refuel following an intense sesh.
CrossFit gyms across the world are fairly standard. They are air-conditioned, have similar equipment, and are simply styled. Well, not this one.
Going against the grain, Obsidian Bali in Canggu is separated into a weights and machines room, a caged room for functional fitness, and a recovery room with a pool and cafe. It’s the ultimate Bali gym.
With large groups and top-quality equipment, Obsidian ain’t for the faint-hearted. But that isn’t to say that they don’t welcome beginners, bodies of all types, and all fitness levels.

Aside from CrossFit sessions, Fortitude Bali offers high-intensity and high-impact classes for strength-building, cardio, and endurance training.
As far as CrossFit gyms go, Bambu Fitness has to be one of the most quintessentially tropical boxes.

Bambu is a top spot for those staying in Uluwatu.
Whether you join for a day, a week, or a full month of sweat, Uluwatu Collective offers a variety of classes from Metcon to HIIT and, of course, CrossFit. They also have a calming yoga class on the schedule, which is a great way to slow your heart rate after a heavy CrossFit session.
Aptly named a ‘collective,’ this gym aims to connect members to a supportive community of like-minded people.
Whether visiting for a day or a month, there are drop-in rates and bi-monthly passes available.
There are few things better than leaving the gym, aching in all the right places with a buzz of endorphins and energy. Muscle Beach Club is a fully equipped commercial gym with all the familiar machines and toys in an air-conditioned space.

Other than a CrossFit area where you can train on your own clock, Point One Gym also offers classes like Zumba, Box Active, and Muay Thai.
There is even a rooftop deck where you can work out in the island sun.
A centrally located gym that really fits into the buzz of the busy Seminyak neighborhood, CrossFit Seminyak is dedicated to your favorite high-intensity workout.
