Here's the scoop on the best places to do CrossFit in Singapore, including CrossFit Singapore, CrossFit Bukit Timah and more
For even the most hardcore fitness and sports fans, CrossFit may seem intimidating. We wouldn’t blame you – to outsiders, it looks incredibly taxing with the heavy weights, pull up bars and stamina training involved. But the workout is inclusive, and caters to all ages and strength levels, as the weight and intensity can be tweaked. Plus, gyms in Singapore with CrossFit training are also all about the community spirit – don’t be surprised to be on the receiving end of high-fives and pats on the back after each completed workout. Get in the best shape of your life – we pick the best places for CrossFit in Singapore.
