Ko Samui CrossFit Retreat

Start slow!

We have time to get you in shape, that's why we think about "posture before speed"

If you're a CrossFit beginner, we'll take it easy the first few sessions, and work our way up based on how your body develops.

Different daily routines

The great part about CrossFit is that every day is different! Our programme wil have you trying something new most days and challenging you physically and mentally. Our programming has been tried and tested around the world with great success.

All Levels Welcome

No matter what level you are at - our programme is scalable to your level of fitness and experience.

Our Coaches will work with you to get you to where you need to be!

That's also what makes us one of the best weight loss retreats for adults. Everything is scaled based on your current form!

Nutrition

Nutrition is a huge factor when you train with us! We believe you need to fuel your body with the correct food to get you through your training sessions. That is why we have teamed up with some excellent healthy restaurants.

Thai and Western to give you exclusive discounts on your food. Sit on the beach and enjoy your food while you relax looking at the clear blue water of Lamai Beach.

You can easily adjust your diet here, and treat this fitness retreat like a detox retreat. Reshape your eating, and reshape your body.

Take a break and relax

Saturday afternoon and Sundays are our rest days. This is a great chance to explore the island or visit the beach and have a sneaky cocktail.

We often organise activities for big groups to visit surrounding islands, go snorkelling, jet skiing or exploring the nightlife Koh Samui has to offer

Preparing for an event?

We offer a great retreat to prepare for your next Spartan Race, CrossFit Open or Triathlon. Or just your wedding - get fit for it!

Use the box when there's no classes. Go for cardio in the morning with others. Get together with our head coach for your preparation routine.

A typical schedule

A typical day will have you training between 2-3 times per day. Usuaully at least 1 Crossfit and Strength session inside our Gym with our NEW and top of the line equipment! And up to 4 outdoor cardio sessions per week, which may include Beach Workouts, Morning Mountain Hikes to different Temples, Morning Runs or Morning Swims. These are a great way to explore Koh Samui while still getting your fitness in for the morning!

Location

Lamai Beach Crossfit is located on the beautiful tropical island of Koh Samui, in the bay of Thailand.

Lamai is the second biggest beach on Samui, and not as wild as Chaweng. It has a good mix of locals and ex-pats living here, blended in between resorts and sea-side localities.

Infrastructure

Samui has its own ( very nice ) airport that is operated by Bangkok Airways. Infrastructure wise you can find everything on Samui - there are many private hospitals, tons of pharmacies, 24 hour stores such as 7/11 and Family Marts. Big Retailers such as Tesco, Big C, Macro and Tops. You can even find a huge wine selection nowadays - and the best breakfasts - as there's over 4 french bakeries in Lamai alone!

Food

Food wise it doesn't matter if you like Thai food or not ( we love it ) - there are a lot of options here from Italian Restaurants, French Wine bars, Australian foods, Meat buffets, to Indian Food, many Vegan restaurants, etc. It's really hard to not find something to your taste on Samui!

For everything else - we order things online, and they usually arrive 2-3 days later here.

Internet

Thailand is a mobile-first country. What does that mean? That means that pretty much everywhere you can get a 4G signal. If your phone can get internet - you'll be settled for just around $10 with a steady internet connection.

Language

Since Ko Samui has many many resorts, there won't be any issues with communication on this island. The majority of service staff in resorts, restaurants and stores do speak English - or will be able to communicate with you with hand and feet.

And for the seldom case that you really need it - if you have your phone in your pocket with Google Translate - you'll be just fine.

December 2018

πŸ‡«πŸ‡· Dady from France

"I met Mike in Bali, where he used to work as a coach. When I heard that he was setting up his own Crossfit box, it was clear that I would visit him. I've been doing Crossfit for about 3 years and Mike is one of the best coaches I've had.

He has a very good eye for the details in the exercises, gets the last percent in the workout out of one and through his loose and open nature, you just like to go to work out.

What is reflected in the community of the box. After only a short time he has managed to form a great community that also dines together or makes excursions. I felt welcome and comfortable from the first moment.

In the 2 weeks I was training every other day and once again realized that his training is simply the best.

All in all very recommendable.

πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾"

"Ich habe Mike auf Bali kennengelernt, wo er vorher als Coach gearbeitet hat. Als ich gehΓΆrt habe, dass er eine eigene Crossfit Box auf macht, war klar, dass ich ihn besuchen werde. Ich mache seit ca. 3 Jahren Crossfit und Mike ist einer der besten Coaches die ich hatte.

Er hat ein sehr gutes Auge für die Details bei den Übungen, holt die letzten Prozent im Workout aus einem heraus und durch seine locker und offene Art geht man einfach gerne hin zum trainieren.

Was sich in der Community der Box widerspiegelt. Er hat es bereits nach kurzer Zeit geschafft eine tolle Gemeinschaft zu bilden die auch mal Abends zusammen essen geht oder AusflΓΌge macht. Ich habe mich vom ersten Moment an willkommen und wohlgefΓΌhlt.

In den 2 Wochen war ich jeden zweiten Tag trainieren und stelle wieder einmal fest, dass sein Training einfach mit das beste ist.

Alles in allem sehr zu empfehlen.

πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾"
