At the peak of CrossFit’s popularity, several gyms stated they were CrossFit affiliated with fully qualified CrossFit trainers, none of which were true. Unit 27 was the only legitimate CrossFit gym in Phuket at the time of their opening in 2011.
Their popularity grew simply because of the quality, legitimacy and their trainer’s knowledge and professionalism. Unit 27 became a well-known place for high-quality fitness classes that involved proper warm-ups, strategic execution of workout and a sound cool down.
Unit 27 has gone from strength to strength. They have opened their own dedicated weights gym just down their road called Primal Fitness.
Unit 27 Facilities
Swedish Sauna & Ice Bath
Swedish Sauna famous for its heat as if there was needed in Thailand. Most sauna’s around Phuket are Herbal Steam rooms. Not many places an actual dry heat sauna that get to Swedish temperatures. Using this along with the Ice Bath is a great combination to help with recovery from a hard days training. I recommend taking advantage of this every day.
Body Composition Machine
Unit 27 invested in a Body Composition analysis machine called the BC-418 which is priced over $5,000 USD. The machine will analyse your body composition which will be able to distinguish what of your body weight is muscle, fat, water/fluids etc It’s a great idea to take your Body Composition before your start your fitness/weight loss mission and one before you head back home. A lot of the time the weigh scales will not reflect your progress accurately. A Body Composition analysis will do this perfectly and keep you inspired at times you feel like you unmotivated.
Unit 27 has a restaurant on the same road as their fitness studio and weight gym. The Restaurant is called Muscle bar. It has a variety of healthy, filling food to keep you fuelled up for the workouts.
