You don’t necessarily need to go to a gym on Koh Tao to get a workout. So if you are not a gym buff but still like to get regular exercise, you are in the right place! Koh Tao is a paradise island of hiking trails and rock climbing areas, and of course also has an extensive range of swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving options too, all of which offer great opportunities to see more of the island and burn some calories at the same time. If you prefer a more traditional workout in a gym setting though, there are some great options. In fact, for such a small island, Koh Tao gym facilities are varied and plentiful.
Koh Tao Crossfit
With over 30 classes available every week, CrossFit is a great Koh Tao gym option for those who want to have a varied workout routine and meet some fellow workout junkies in a friendly and inclusive environment. Introductory classes, body fit sessions and personal training sessions are available throughout the week. Even outside of scheduled class times, the Koh Tao CrossFit box remains accessible four days a week for open gym training. Daily passes, multi-day passes, and monthly subscriptions are available.
Gym and Fitness
Koh Tao Gym and Fitness is a two story, air-conditioned gym just out of Sairee next door to Smile Mart supermarket. The downstairs floor houses an extensive weights section, along with muscle building and strengthening apparatus. Upstairs you’ll find cardio machines and a boxing area. Drop-in passes are available, as well as discounted offers for daily, weekly, and monthly subscriptions. Fresh towels are included, and there are a range of flavoured protein shakes available for a small surcharge.
Monsoon Gym & Fight Club
Monsoon Gym and Fight Club is located just off the main road between Sairee Beach and Mae Haad. This Koh Tao gym offers a range of different options including Muay Thai, boxing, Jiu Jitsu training, and HIIT classes. It has a fully-equipped weight training section and offers daily, weekly, and monthly passes for weight training, group sessions, and personal training.
Island Muay Thai
Located in Sairee just down the road from Gym and Fitness, Island Muay Thai was established in 2002 and is Koh Tao’s original Muay Thai training school. It is the only Koh Tao gym to host regular fight nights that are open to the public, and its full-sized ring makes it a popular choice for spar training. Packages are available for single day, weekly and monthly passes.
