8 Crossfit Boxes To Train At In Malaysia

So you’ve pinned 157 fitness quotes on Pinterest and liked all the fitspo ladies and gents on your Instagram. Now that the inspiration bit is done, why not get some actual work done? Try CrossFit! It is fitness trend that’s gathering more steam in Malaysia as more and more CrossFit boxes (gym) opening each year with more Malaysians jumping onto this fitness bandwagon.

Here’s a gist of Crossfit:

  • It is a workout program that aims to strengthen your core and condition your body through various functional exercises.
  • It’s mostly used by police academies, martial artists, soldiers, and athletes to improve their performance.
  • It’s important to find a gym with an experienced trainer and a community you are comfortable with so that you’ll learn the proper form and be more encouraged to keep CrossFitting!

In a normal gym, the amount of gym equipment can be overwhelming. In the end, you end up going for the ones that you’re familiar with like the treadmill or the cross-trainer. With CrossFit, there is less equipment and you have a coach that is always there to keep an eye on you and create a workout plan based on your fitness level.

The only gym equipment you might find are weights, pull-up bars and other weight training aids. It’s all about the community in the box, so you will be able to meet new people and support each other to complete the WOD (CrossFit term: Workout of the Day). So try out one of these gyms near you to start your own fitspo story!
