It was just last month (November 2014) that I spent a day in Bangkok, Thailand. After looking at the Affiliate Map we believed there were only five CrossFit boxes in Bangkok. All of them appeared to be relatively close to each other. So The Rx Review 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 of them were 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 Ten500 opened in December of 2012 and was the third box I filmed during our Bangkok box tour. (You can check out the other three – East West CrossFit, CrossFit BK, and Ari CrossFit tours by clicking on the links). The CrossFit affiliate is located at 2 KCC Building, Silom soi 9 Silom Road, Bangrak, Bangkok, Thailand.\
