CrossFit has been taking the world by storm since its creation in 2000, and is well-known internationally. In Singapore, it has also had a surge in popularity in recent times, with many CrossFit training gyms popping up across the island.
WHAT IS CROSSFIT?
If you are unfamiliar with this workout programme, it focuses mainly on your strength and conditioning. According to the co-creator of CrossFit, Greg Glassman, the aim of CrossFit “has been to forge a broad, general, and inclusive fitness”, emphasising a lack of specialisation as their specialisation, which allows CrossFit to lend itself well to sports and encourage fitness in all general physical skills.
In short, CrossFit trains you to be an all-rounder in fitness and is prescribed as “constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement.” Naturally, since CrossFit is different from regular workouts, normal gyms don’t cut it. Here are the 10 best CrossFit gyms in Singapore if you want to get started.

CrossFit Fire City doesn’t chase numbers, they chase virtuosity. The weight of your bench is just as important as the technique and skill involved. Like all CrossFit gyms, they tout the importance of a close-knit community. However, to them, the community goes further than just within the four walls of the gyms, with activities such as potlucks to obstacle courses to bond fellow CrossFitters.
CrossFit Fire City also has a programme “CrossFit Juniors” for children aged 9-12 years old, as they believe in the importance of good movement throughout childhood and adolescence.
