It was just last month (November 2014) that I spent a day in Bangkok, Thailand. After taking a few moments to look at the Affiliate Map we believed there were only five CrossFit boxes in Bangkok, all relatively close to each other. So The Rx Review and I decided I would go ahead and attempt to film every CrossFit Affiliate in a single day.
Little did I know I would battle intense humidity, stifling 30 degree+ heat, a litany of taxis that would refuse to drive me anywhere, and language barriers in an unfamiliar and unforgiving city.
All that aside, I’m happy to report I found some of the most welcoming coaches and affiliates, all too willing to show me around town and point me in the right direction. From teaching me how to catch the trains or attempting to hail me countless taxi’s, the kindness and support of the CrossFit community is as strong in Bangkok as anywhere in the world I’ve experienced.
CrossFit BK was the second box I filmed (You can check out East West CrossFit and the first box I filmed at here and the tour of CrossFit Ten500 here). Located on the roof of Fitcorp Asia’s Aspire Club, CrossFit BK is an outdoor facility with sweeping views of downtown Bangkok and Asoke BTS train station.
